The Navy Midshipmen are all set to announce on Jan. 24 that they will join the Big East in football in 2015, according to a CBS Sports report. The move itself isn't really that surprising as we heard from Navy in December that they were still interested in joining but couldn't make the move before 2014 because of scheduling.
The Big East added Boise State, Houston, San Diego State, SMU and UCF last month. Those schools will join the conference in 2013. Boise State and San Diego State will be football only members while Houston, SMU and UCF are joining in all sports.
Even with Navy, that would still leave the conference one team short of the 12 members necessary to go to divisions and play a conference championship game.
Who would you like to see be the 12th football member for the Big East?
