Big East Expansion: Temple Expected To Be Added During Wednesday Press Conference

The Big East Conference will hold a press conference Wednesday night, with the expectation being that the conference will announce the addition of new member Temple.

Reports say that Temple will be presented as the league's latest member at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. The Big East announced that a press conference will be held at that time "to address conference membership."

According to CBS Sports' Brett McMurphy, the Owls are expected to join the conference for football in 2012, with all other sports following suit in 2013. The impending departure of the West Virginia Mountaineers left a hole in the Big East's football schedule, which is why Temple will join for football prior to joining for other sports.
