TCU to join Big East


Recommended Posts

Good for them. The Big East isn't an amazing conference but it's much better for TCU to play better teams and try and be more legit.

It looks like TCU will get its chance to play in a BCS automatic qualifying conference.

The Horned Frogs have accepted an invitation to join the Big East as an all-sports member, sources told ESPNDallas.com's Richard Durrett on Monday morning. An official announcement is expected at 1 p.m. CT.

TCU is currently third in football in the BCS standings and has a chance to play in the national championship, but the winner of the Mountain West does not automatically qualify for a BCS bowl. The Big East does qualify for the 2012 and 2013 seasons and will be bolstered by the Horned Frogs' three consecutive top 11 BCS finishes. Fanhouse.com reported that TCU will join the Big East for the 2012-13 school year.

The Big East will now have 17 members, with nine in football. The conference has extended an invitation to Villanova to become the 10th football member.

Connecticut at 7-4 will likely represent the Big East in a BCS bowl this season.
