Report – Temple to Join Big East in Fall of 2012
The sultan of conference expansion, Brett McMurphy of CBSSports.com is reporting that the Temple Owls will be moving to the Big East this fall as a full member. Here’s McMurphy with the story:
If the Owls take West Virginia’s place on the Big East schedule, the Owls will have Big East home games against Syracuse, Rutgers, Cincinnati and South Florida and league road games at UConn, Pittsburgh and Louisville. The Big East’s football schedule should be released in the coming days.

According to McMurphy the Big East school presidents held a vote Wednesday morning to make the decision and an official announcement is expected at noon. I asked my Big East sources yesterday about the potential of Temple joining the league in the near future and I received a cryptic message that when translated pretty much pointed to Temple joining the league. Now it looks like we have a time frame and it’s a quick turnaround for both Temple and the Big East. We will keep you updated as the story develops as we are in the heart of the Big East world in Madison Square Garden all day.
