Will Temple follow Connecticut out of the AAC and into the Big East?
The Big East held a vote to approve the addition of the Connecticut Huskies as an 11th member of the conference, according to a report from CBS Sports’ Matt Norlander.
UConn was working toward a departure from the American Athletic Conference, and was expected to accept an invitation to rejoin the Big East.
Conference bylaws require UConn to pay a $10 million withdrawal fee and give 27 months’ notice before leaving, according to The Associated Press.
Many details of the departure remain unclear — including the future plans for UConn’s football program. The American is unlikely to allow the Huskies to remain in the league as a football-only member.
