A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that Maryland and Rutgers are in discussions with the Big Ten to possibly join the conference in 2014.
The person spoke Saturday night on condition of anonymity because neither the conference nor the schools want to publicly discuss their plans.
ESPN.com first reported that the Big Ten was looking into expanding to 14 teams by adding Maryland and Rutgers.
The person says Maryland would have to be ``the first domino to fall,'' but added that an agreement could be reached as soon as this week for both schools.
The Big Ten has 12 members after adding Nebraska last season.
Maryland is in the Atlantic Coast Conference, which recently added Notre Dame as a member in all sports except football and hockey. Rutgers is in the Big East.
