Tulsa Athletics Will Become a Big East Team
It's official - the University of Tulsa is moving to the Big East athletic conference.
The move will be effective 2014.
TU President Steadman Upham said the move will resurrect old rivalries between other TU and other teams that recently left Conference-USA.
He also said the move will allow TU to compete on the highest possible level.
TU won 49 conference championships in C-USA.
The move will affect all TU sports, not just football or basketball.
The Big East will change its name in July.
