ORLANDO — Central Florida athletic director Keith Tribble declined to say if his school is scheduled to meet with Big East officials this week to discuss joining the league.
Tribble said Thursday that UCF is committed to doing what's best for Conference USA but added he is aware of reports of talks between C-USA and the Mountain West that could see the leagues' champs meet for a BCS berth.
He said having an opportunity to be in a conference with an automatic tie-in to the BCS is important and it would be a factor should UCF be approached about switching conferences.
The Big East also is considering Boise State for football only. But both sides still need to be persuaded it's the right move, the Associated Press reported.
The report said some Big East presidents are resisting adding Boise State and the school itself has reservations about joining a conference in flux.
The Big East said earlier this week it would like to expand to 12 schools and split into two divisions, which would allow it to play a championship.
The report said some Big East leaders believe the priority in expansion should be bringing in programs that will ensure it remains an automatic qualifying BCS conference when the current BCS TV and bowl contracts run out after the 2013 season. Losing its automatic bid could cost the Big East millions of dollars.
Last month, Pitt and Syracuse said they would be leaving for the ACC. That left the Big East with six football members: Louisville, Cincinnati, West Virginia, Rutgers, Connecticut and USF.
The Big East has been holding conference calls all week, including Thursday, to discuss expansion. Other schools under consideration are Navy and Air Force (football only) and Temple and East Carolina for all sports.
Mississippi: Starting running back Brandon Bolden, starting center A.J. Hawkins, backup receiver Philander Moore and backup guard Alex Washington were suspended one game for undisclosed rule violations.
Ohio St.: Freshman QB Braxton Miller, who sprained an ankle last week against Nebraska, will start Saturday against Illinois. Also, backup corner Dominic Clarke won't play after being arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. Campus police said the sophomore discharged a BB gun. Fifteen Buckeyes have been suspended or held out of games this season due to NCAA or legal problems or breaking team rules.
Penn State: Receiver Derek Moye, who has a team-high 28 catches, is expected to miss two games because of a broken bone in his left foot. The senior slipped on the stairs in his apartment.
Virginia Tech: Starting linebacker Jeron Gouviea-Winslow is out for the season with a sprained left foot. The junior was hurt while rushing a field goal Saturday against Miami.
Wash. St.: Coach Paul Wulff said he has not determined his starting quarterback for Saturday against Stanford. Jeff Tuel, who broke his collarbone during the opener, has been cleared. Marshall Lobbestael has led the Cougars to three wins, matching their total from the past two seasons combined.
San Diego St. 41, Air Force 27: Ronnie Hillman ran for 172 yards, including scores of 22 and 57 yards, for the visiting Aztecs (4-2, 1-1 Mountain West). The sophomore has surpassed 100 yards in 11 of his 18 career games. The Falcons (3-3, 0-2) led 20-17 in the third until consecutive turnovers led to 10 points by San Diego State.
North Carolina: Coach Roy Williams agreed to an extension through 2018. His salary was raised to $1.745 million, not including bonuses for oncourt and academic achievements.
Obama at game: President Barack Obama will attend the Carrier Classic on Veterans Day between North Carolina and Michigan State on the USS Carl Vinson, the aircraft carrier that buried Osama bin Laden at sea.
Pitt: Senior forward Nasir Robinson is expected to miss three weeks after surgery on a torn meniscus in his right knee. His status for the Nov. 11 opener hasn't been determined. Robinson, who averaged 9.4 points and 4.9 rebounds last season, missed three games last season with a similar injury.
