Temple To Big East In 2012 Is Likely, According To Report

The Temple Owls have been talking up a return to the Big East for almost a year now, and according to multiple reports, they might just about be set to make it in. CBS Sports' Brett McMurphy reports Temple is likely to replace the West Virginia Mountaineers in all sports in 2012. The 2012-2013 athletic year begins in just a few months, and we're really cutting it close this time around.

It would also eliminate the need for the Boise St. Broncos to hurry up and make a move without having a good place to stow their non-football teams. Boise had been looking at a return to the WAC with their other sports, but the WAC might not exist beyond any particular day of the week.

The Big East would have 13 eventual football members if Temple joined on and nobody left, but this does raise speculation that the Louisville Cardinals could be headed to the Big 12.
