BOISE-- The Boise State Broncos have found a new home for their non-football sports. BSU announced on Friday that the Broncos will play in the Big West Conference in all Olympic sports, starting July 1, 2013.

Other Big West members include Hawaii, San Diego State, and Pacific.

Boise State has been searching for a league to play in after the football team accepted an invitation to join the Big East, ending the Broncos' membership in the Mountain West Conference.

"Boise State’s membership in the Big West Conference complements our Big East Conference football presence and reflects our emerging coast-to-coast profile," Boise State President Bob Kustra stated.

"We are truly excited by the prospects of competition and collaboration with all these new partners both athletically and academically. The Big West will be an outstanding home for the majority of our intercollegiate sports and will provide great opportunities for our student-athletes."

The Broncos will participate in the sports of men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s golf, women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field and women’s volleyball.
