LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The struggling Big East Conference came up short again in the latest round of expansion.
The conference lost its fifth member in the past 18 months with Rutgers bolting for the Big Ten Tuesday. Now the league could lose one of its two most prominent remaining football programs.
Louisville or Connecticut could join the Atlantic Coast Conference - which is seeking a replacement for Big Ten-bound Maryland.
Central Florida, Houston, Memphis, SMU, Boise State and San Diego State are due to make the big East a 12-team league next season, with Navy football arriving in 2015. But this week's news was another blow to the league's fight to remain relevant.
Still, Commissioner Mike Aresco remains confident he can keep the Big East intact and complete his own expansion plans.
