TU is heading to the soon-to-be-renamed Big East.
That's according to an ESPN story that cites sources. Nothing is official though, and TU won't confirm anything.
According to the story, the league's presidents are expected to vote on adding the Golden Hurricane next week. Tulsa is expected to leave Conference USA for the old Big East on July 1, 2014.
TU won't be facing a lot of new teams if it leaves for the Big East. Nine of the 11 schools expected to be in the league in 2014 left Conference USA for the Big East. The only two teams that didn't are Connecticut and Temple.
Navy is scheduled to join the Big East in 2015.
