The Houston Cougars are preparing to enter the Big East. Now it seems as though three other Conference USA teams will be joining them.
The Houston Cougars have known for over a year that they will finally be moving to the Big East in 2013. Now it appears that all four teams transitioning to the new conference have been solidified.
Brett McMurphy of CBS Sports reports that the Memphis Tigers will be one of the three teams joining the Cougars in the realigned Big East Conference in 2013. Also moving from Conference USA to the Big East are the SMU Mustangs and the Central Florida Knights.
The moves will leave Conference USA with only eight members when all is said and done, so it is likely that this is far from the end of realignment conversation.
