New Big East commissioner Mike Aresco said on Thursday he wants to add a 14th team to the conference for football and plans to have a conference championship game after next season, the Hartford Courant reported.
Despite rumors that Connecticut, Rutgers, Louisville and Cincinnati may be looking to move to a different conference, Aresco said he doesn't expect them to leave.
"I think they'll stay," Aresco said, according to the Courant. "I think they'll want to stay because we'll work hard to keep them here, we'll work hard to show them that this conference is a great conference, we'll work hard to get the kind of TV deal that provides the financial stability as well as the exposure ... We think everybody is committed to this conference."
