    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    With Tulsa and East Carolina set to join the old Big East in 2014, here’s how the new and old Big Easts break down going forward:

    The old Big East will rename itself by mid-April, with America 12 one of the options.

    As ESPN.com pointed out, nine of the 11 teams in that league in 2014 will be former Conference USA teams: Cincinnati, South Florida, UCF, Houston, SMU, Memphis, East Carolina, Tulane and Tulsa.
