UPDATE: WVU Official says ACC, SEC Rejection is an "Outright Lie"

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: A WVU official told WVi the report about West Virginia University being rejected by the SEC and ACC is an "outright lie."

This official also said the Big East meetings between football athletic directors, presidents and Commissioner John Marinatto is happening tonight in New York City.



UPDATE: Missouri reportedly received an invitation to join the SEC. A Missouri beat writer at the Kansas City Star broke the story. This report says the SEC is willing to wait for Missouri to figure out if the Big XII is going to implode or have an opportunity to remain a viable conference.

There are also numerous outlets reporting the Big East is going to be holding a face-to-face meeting with its Athletic Director's tonight. The meeting will reportedly be held to discuss the future of its football conference.

When contacted, a Big East official refused to comment about any potential meeting.



Conference realignment continues to dominate the college football landscape. With the Big East in unsettled territory, WVU officials have been busy trying to get the University in a more stable conference.

Brett McMurphy of CBSsports.com tweeted, "Multiple Big East sources said they have been told by WVU officials that WVU was rejected by the ACC & SEC."

Multiple phone calls to WVU officials have not yet been returned. I was told WVU Athletic Director Oliver Luck was in a meeting when I contacted his office.

If this report is correct, it does not mean WVU will be prevented from joining those conferences in the future as the college football landscape continues to change.

Number 16 WVU will host Number 2 LSU Saturday at 8 p.m. Morgantown will also welcome ESPN's College GameDay to town later this week.
