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.
