TCU has been the main suspected team that the Big East wants to add in an attempt to shore up their football conference, which has zero teams in the current top 25. TCU Athletic Director Chris Del Conte told the Dallas Morning News that no one from the Big East has contacted him about the possibility of TCU joining the Big East.
Central Florida also has denied any contact with the Big East concerning them leaving Conference USA:
"There has been no contact between UCF and the BIG EAST Conference. We continue to be a proud member of Conference USA."
This seems to be only a matter of time, because the Big East said they want to go to 10 teams, and have already contacted Villanova about moving up from FCS to FBS.
