PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - Big East Commissioner Mike Aresco says he will talk to Navy about the possibility of joining the conference earlier than its scheduled 2015 arrival as a football-only member.
Aresco spoke to reporters before Connecticut played at Rutgers on Saturday.
The Big East is on target to become a 12-team football conference next season, with the addition of Boise State and five other schools.
The conference has made it clear that it will be in the market for a 14th member to balance out the league when Navy joins. Aresco says it should not be assumed the league will only add a school currently playing football as an independent.
He says there is no timetable for adding another member, but wants to talk to Navy about joining sooner.
