Talk of BYU to the Big East is really gaining momentum. 

Football coach Bronco Mendenhall has confirmed the conference has approached the school and some media outlets have even gone so far as to say BYU has an invite and is mulling a decision. 

So with conference affiliation with the Big East looking like a distinct possibility for the Cougars, let's take a look at how BYU stacks up against the competition; existing and supposed. 

Some media hacks are already saying BYU has no shot to win a BCS game, even in the Big East. 

While it's true—the new Big East won't offer any cupcake gimme wins like Arizona, Oregon State, UCLA and Colorado provide in the Pac-12 this year—BYU still has a shot to compete for a title. 

And as Utah proved, once you're in, anything can happen. Only fools say never. 

Here's a breakdown of how BYU fits with the members of the new Big (W)East.
