San Diego State athletic director Jim Sterk says the Aztecs are
committed to a future in the Big East in 2013 despite Rutgers’ jump
to the Big Ten.

Sterk made his comments Tuesday during the school’s weekly press
conference.

He also essentially ruled out the possibility of staying in the
Mountain West Conference, noting he hasn’t talked to MWC
Commissioner Craig Thompson since May.

Brigham Young is another school frequently mentioned in regards
to Big East expansion because the Cougars are independent in
football.

Sterk says he would be “in favor” of BYU joining the Aztecs in
the Big East.

BYU officials have declined comment, saying they choose not to
respond to conjecture.

Sterk acknowledged the Big East took a hit and may take others
but he believes the league will remain strong.
