As expected, Boise State sent its letter of resignation to the Mountain West Conference on Saturday, according to UNLV president Neal Smatresk.
The letter arrived ahead of a midnight Saturday deadline for Boise State to notify the MWC of whether the school intended to follow through on its plan to leave the conference after the 2012-13 academic year - primarily for the football team to move to the Big East Conference.
Boise State was already due to forfeit $2.5 million in future revenue as a penalty for exiting the conference beginning in 2013-14. However, had the school not met the deadline, it would have had to pay an additional $5 million penalty.
