Navy To Big East Announcement Coming At 3 P.M. ET Tuesday

The Navy Midshipmen and Big East will announce the joining of their respective fleets at a 3 p.m. ET Tuesday media teleconference, giving the conference 11 members from the year 2015 onward. Navy's joining in football only, making them unlike much of the Big East's non-football membership.

To recap, the Big East is losing Syracuse and Pitt to the ACC plus West Virginia to the Big 12, but gaining Boise State, UCF, Houston, SMU, and San Diego State beginning in 2013. Air Force was also weighing whether to join when last we'd heard, while Army has already declined.

Navy has been independent in football for longer than any other school. The year 2015 will mark the first time they ever play in a conference, and it'll probably be some game across the entire world against SMU or some such. While they have clear cultural ties with SDSU's community, this is all a little gross.
