TU is waving goodbye to Conference USA and hello to the Big East.
Tulsa will hold a press conference Tuesday morning at 10:30 for a "major athletic-related announcement."
FOX23 Sports has learned that announcement is that the school is joining the Big East, but TU won't make any other official comment on the subject until the actual press conference.
The Golden Hurricane has been in Conference USA since 2005 and will still compete in Conference USA next season before switching to the Big East in the summer of 2014. It won't be the Big East for long though. The current Big East will soon change its name because the schools that are leaving the Big East are taking the name with them.
