LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - With the college football landscape changing by the hour, the Big East football schools are set to meet Tuesday night in New York City. University of Louisville president Dr. James Ramsey and vice president of athletics Tom Jurich will both attend the meeting.
The league has already lost Pittsburgh and Syracuse to the Atlantic Coast Conference, and could lose Connecticut and Rutgers. West Virginia has reportedly been turned down in attempts to join both the Southeastern Conference and the A.C.C.
The Big East could add new members or potentially merge with the Big 12. That league is losing Texas A & M to the S.E.C., and could lose Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech to the Pac 12. However, Oklahoma officials have not ruled out staying in the Big 12.
The madness figures to play out in the next week or so, at issue is U of L's ability to remain in a football league with an automatic bid to the lucrative Bowl Championship Series.
