Tulane and ECU (FB) to The Big East
Tulane University announced today at a news conference that it will join the Big East Conference in 2014. Tulane is currently a member of Conference USA.
East Carolina will join the rebuilding Big East for football only in 2014, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because neither the conference nor the school was prepared to make an official announcement. East Carolina, located in Greenville, N.C., has a news conference scheduled for 5 p.m.
