Temple's Return To Big East Is 'Imminent,' According To Report

The Temple Owls will return to the Big East any day now. You know that, I know that, and once school officials started denying it, we all knew it. The MAC side has confirmed Temple's interest, and about the only thing left to do is watch the Owls fly (owl term) back to their old nest.

It should absolutely, definitely happen any day now, a MAC source tells the Philadelphia Inquirer's Keith Pompey. According to the report, the MAC was working on buyout details over the weekend. Temple is supposed to be joining the Big East in time to replace West Virginia on the 2012 football schedule.

Speaking of buyouts, Temple is expected to owe $2.5 million to the MAC for moving its football program and $2 million to the Atlantic 10 for moving everything else.
