It’s official: Creighton, Butler and Xavier to the Big East

4 Comments

As was reported yesterday, the Big East held a press conference today to officially announce their future.

The league will be adding Creighton, Butler and Xavier for the 2013-14 season. They have signed a 12-year rights deal with FOX Sports and their new channel, FOX Sports 1. And, perhaps more importantly, the Big East has officially agreed with Madison Square Garden that the World’s Most Famous Arena will host their conference tournament until 2025-2026.

And now that that’s done, it’s time to figure out just what to call the old Big East.
