The Big East Conference is a collegiate athletics conference consisting of sixteen universities in the northeastern, southeastern and midwestern United Statesmarker. The conference's 17 members (16 full-time and 1 associate member) participate in 23 NCAA sports. Eight of the seventeen conference schools are football members and the Big East competes as a BCS conference in the Division I Football Bowl Subdivision , the top level of NCAA competition in that sport (also known by its former designation: Division I-A). Three members have football programs but are not Big East football schools: Georgetownmarker and Villanovamarker compete in the Football Championship Subdivision and Notre Damemarker plays as an FBS independent.

The Big East has had all 8 members play in bowl games since re-alignment and has had 7 of 8 teams ranked in the Top 25 since 2003. The last 3 years the Big East has seen the emergence of new national players West Virginia Universitymarker rising to as high as No. 1 and was ranked in the Top 10 for three-straight years, 2005,2006,2007) (University of South Floridamarker rising as high as #2, Rutgersmarker and University of Louisvillemarker as high as #6, University of Connecticutmarker as high as #13 and University of Cincinnatimarker as high as #5 in BCS standings). Also, Big East football has seen an increase in attendance and is enjoying a new, quarter of a billion dollar plus television package that lasts through 2013.

In basketball, Big East teams account for 40 Final Four appearances and 10 NCAA Championships, numbers only surpassed by the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), Big Ten Conference (Big Ten) and Pac-10. Of the Big East's 16 full members, 15 (or 94%) have been to the Final Four, by far the most of any conference.

It should be noted that Louisville, Marquette, DePaul, Notre Dame, Rutgers, Cincinnati, West Virginia and Pittsburgh made their trips before joining the Big East. The only full member that has never been to the Final Four is South Floridamarker. The Big East set the record for the most teams sent to the NCAA Tournament by a single conference in 2006, with eight. The conference tied its own record in 2008.

History

The Big East was founded in 1979 when Providence, St. John's, Georgetown, and Syracuse invited Seton Hall, Rutgers, Connecticut, Holy Crossmarker, and Boston College to form a conference primarily focused on basketball, withRutgers and Holy Crossmarker declining to join. Villanova joined a year later in 1980 and Pittsburgh joined in 1982. Also in 1982, Penn Statemarker applied for membership, but was rejected by a 5-3 vote. It was long rumored that Syracuse cast the deciding vote against Penn State, but Mike Tranghese confirmed that this was not the case and that Syracuse had, in fact, voted for Penn State's inclusion.

Almost a decade later, Big East members decided to become a major football conference and thus added five schools including four-time champion Miami, Temple, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, and Rutgers. Penn State joined the Big Ten Conference. The inaugural Big East football season launched in 1991. West Virginia and Rutgers were football-only members until 1995, Virginia Tech was a football-only member until 2001, with Temple remained a football-only member until 2004 after failing to attract enough fan support consistently. Notre Dame was also offered a non-football membership as of 1995. This led to an unusual conference structure with some schools competing in Division I basketball only.

This had long led to rumors of instability, and in 2003, ongoing press reports of tensions between the football schools and the basketball schools finally exploded into a months-long public tug-of-war between the Big East and the Atlantic Coast Conference over several Big East members. The end result was that three Big East schools — Virginia Techmarker, Miamimarker and Boston Collegemarker — moved to the ACC, while five teams moved to the Big East from Conference USALouisville, Cincinnati, South Florida, Marquette, and DePaul. For more details on this topic, see Realignment.

The addition of the three football schools, along with Big East non-football member Connecticut moving up to the Big East football conference, ensured that the league would keep the minimum eight teams needed to keep its BCS bid. In addition two traditional basketball teams, DePaul and Marquette, were added to gain the Chicago and Milwaukee TV markets and help the already solid basketball status of the conference.

Currently, the Big East represents the majority of the large, athletically competitive private Catholic schools, while public schools UConn, Pittsburgh, Louisville, Rutgers, South Florida, West Virginia and Cincinnati are located in areas with large Catholic communities. Five of the founding seven schools are Catholic schools — Providence, St. John's, Georgetown, Seton Hall, and Boston College.

In January 2006, Loyola University Marylandmarker (then Loyola College in Maryland) joined as an associate member in the sport of women's lacrosse.

Big East schools compete in Division I in basketball and Olympic sports. Football members of the conference participate in Division I FBS. Notre Dame remains an FBS independent, while Georgetown and Villanova have Division I FCS (formerly I-AA) football programs. Georgetown football competes in the Patriot League. Villanova competed in the Atlantic Ten through the 2006 season, but along with all other members of the A-10 football conference joined the new football conference launched by the Colonial Athletic Association in 2007.

An interesting note is that the 8 schools which play football in the conference are all state-supported (or in the case of Pittsburgh, state-related) with the exception of Syracuse (a private but secular institution), whereas the 8 schools that do not play football in the conference are all affiliated with the Roman Catholic Church.

Beginning in 2010, the Big East will sponsor a men's lacrosse league with Georgetown, Notre Dame, Providence, Rutgers, St. John’s, Syracuse and Villanova participating.

Commissioners



Mike Tranghese retired at the end of the 2008–09 academic year, which he announced in June 2008, and was replaced by former senior associate commissioner John Marinatto.

The Big East was founded by seven charter schools in 1979 (Providencemarker, St. John'smarker, Georgetownmarker, Syracusemarker, Seton Hallmarker, UConnmarker, and Boston Collegemarker) with the intent of creating a powerhouse basketball conference. Villanova joined the following year, followed by Pittsburgh in 1982.

It wouldn't take long for the conference to meet its original aim, with Georgetown, led by senior Sleepy Floyd and freshman Patrick Ewing, making the NCAA Championship Game (losing to the James Worthy-led North Carolina Tar Heels, who sported a freshman Michael Jordan). Just two years later in 1984 Georgetown won the Big East's first NCAA basketball championship with a victory over the University of Houston.

The following year three Big East teams (Villanova, St. John's, and Georgetown) all advanced to the Final Four, culminating in Villanova's stunning championship game victory over the heavily-favored Hoyas. The conference's 1985 success was nearly duplicated in 1987, when Syracuse and a surprising Providence Collegemarker both made the Final Four, followed by the Orangemen's narrow loss to Indiana University in the tournament final. Two years later, the Seton Hall Piratesmarker also advanced to the NCAA Championship Game, but were defeated by the Michigan Wolverines in an overtime heartbreaker.

Throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, Georgetown, St. John's, and Syracuse were the primary powers in the conference. Georgetown was led by John Thompson Jr., who was named three times as the conference Coach of the Year. They won five regular season conference championships and six Big East Tournaments to go with their 1984 national title. St. John's was led by Lou Carnesecca, who won the National Coach of the Year honor in 1983 and 1985. He led the Redmen (now the Red Storm) to the 1985 Final Four, and made a post-season appearance in each of his 24 years at the helm. Syracuse has been led by alumnus Jim Boeheim since the 1977 season. He was named conference Coach of the Year in 1984 and 1991. During this period, the Orangemen won five regular season conference championships, three Big East Tournaments, and were invited to the NCAA Tournament every year but two (1981 and 1982), losing the 1987 National Final to Indiana.

From the mid 90's to mid 00's, basketball in the Big East was largely dominated by UConn. Hall of Fame coach Jim Calhoun's program, led by such stars as Ray Allen, Richard "Rip" Hamilton, Caron Butler and Emeka Okafor, averaged nearly 26 wins a year during that time span, won numerous Big East regular season and tournament championships, and claimed the National Championship in both 1999 and 2004.

Syracuse won its first national title in 2003, led by coach Boeheim and freshman Carmelo Anthony. The conference got a record eight teams into the NCAA Men's Tournament in 2006 and matched their own record in 2008. At the start of the 2008-2009 season, many sports analysts predicted that the conference would surpass the record by sending 10 teams to the tournament. When the brackets were revealed, seven made it, but three of them (Louisville, Pittsburgh and Connecticut) gained #1 seeds, and Louisville earned the top seed overall. Another four teams made either the NIT or the College Basketball Invitational.

The conference has a number of former players currently playing in the National Basketball Association with some of the most recent being Allen Iverson, Ray Allen, Caron Butler, Carmelo Anthony, Ryan Gomes, Austin Croshere, Richard "Rip" Hamilton, Ben Gordon, Emeka Okafor, Troy Murphy, Hakim Warrick, Quincy Douby, Randy Foye, Kyle Lowry, Steve Novak, Rudy Gay, Matt Carroll, Hilton Armstrong, Josh Boone, Jake Voskuhl, Kevin Ollie, Etan Thomas, Samuel Dalembert, Charlie Villanueva, Donte Greene, Ron Artest, Chris Quinn, Jason Hart, Tim Thomas, Aaron Gray, Wilson Chandler, Jeff Green, Joe Alexander, Marcus Williams, Jonny Flynn, Terrence Williams, and Earl Clark.

Women's basketball



Big East women's basketball is nearly as powerful as the conference's men's programs. UConn coach Geno Auriemma has led his women's team to six national championships (including four between 2000 and 2004) and three undefeated seasons (1995, 2002 and 2009). UConn set the record for longest winning streak in all of NCAA women's basketball history with a 70 game winning streak stretching from 2001-2003. This streak was ended in 2003 when Villanova beat UConn for the Big East tournament title, in what is considered one of the biggest upsets in women's basketball (Villanova would go on to reach the Elite Eight that year). Under the strength of the UConn program, and to a lesser extent 2007 national runner-up Rutgers, and 2001 national champion Notre Dame, the Big East has emerged as one of the major powers in women's college basketball. In 2009 two Big East schools met in the national championship game (Connecticut and Louisville) and the South Florida women's basketball team defeated the University of Kansasmarker to become the WNIT Champions.

Big East began football during the 1991-1992 season with the addition of Miami and was a founding member of the Bowl Championship Series. The league obtained immediate legitimacy with the addition of powerhouse Miami.

In the league's early years the University of Miamimarker dominated, winning nine of the first thirteen championships and two national championships in 1991 and 2001. Virginia Tech also did well, winning the conference in 1995 and 1996 and earning a number 2 national ranking in 1999. West Virginia and Syracuse were the only other teams to win conference titles during the league's original alignment.

The conference experienced a major reconstruction when Miami and Virginia Tech left for the Atlantic Coast Conference in 2004, followed by Boston College in 2005. Initially, Syracuse University was in place to make the jump instead of Virginia Techmarker, but in 2003, the governor of Virginiamarker put pressure on the ACC to ensure that Virginia Techmarker was taken over Syracuse. Syracuse was left to remain in the Big East. Temple was the long time doormat of the league, barely ever able to draw enough fans fill the bottom sections of Veterans Stadiummarker or Lincoln Financial Fieldmarker. At times Temple's only contribution seemed to be a means for fans in Philadelphia to see national powerhouses Miami and Virgina Tech when they had to come play Temple at home. Despite the conference's existence being at stake from this defection of members the conference still was compelled to expel the Owls voluntarily in 2004.

The universities that replaced them were Louisvillemarker, USFmarker and Cincinnatimarker from Conference USA. The league also invited the University of Connecticutmarker to play football a year earlier than planned.

At about this time, the BCS announced that it would adjust the automatic bids granted to its six founding conferences based on results from 2004–07, and that there would be five, six, or seven such bids starting in 2008. The obvious inference was that soon the Big East might lose its bid, and the Mountain West might gain one.

The conference’s fortunes improved in 2005. The three new teams from Conference USA began play that year, restoring the league to eight teams. West Virginia won the conference title, defeated SEC champion Georgia in the Sugar Bowl, and finished 11–1 and finished #5 in the AP poll. Newcomer Louisville also ranked in the top 20.

Another former member for football only was Templemarker. Unlike other football only members in the past, they did not gain full membership in the Big East - due to objections from crosstown rivals Villanova (who do not play football in the Big East). After 14 seasons of mostly poor performance, Temple was kicked out of the conference following the 2004 season. They currently play football in the Mid-American Conference (for that sport only), and are the first school to leave a BCS conference to later join a non-BCS conference.

In 2006, West Virginia, Louisville, and Rutgers all entered November undefeated. However, they did not stay that way, as in a trio of exciting games over the next month, Louisville defeated West Virginia 44–34, Rutgers defeated Louisville 28–25, and West Virginia defeated Rutgers 41–39 in three overtimes. Rutgers’ resurgence after a century of mostly futile play was a national story, but Louisville won the conference title in the end. In bowl action, the Big East went 5–0, including an Orange Bowl victory for Louisville over Wake Forest and a win by West Virginia over Georgia Tech in the Gator Bowl. Louisville would finish the season ranked 6th, West Virginia 10th, and Rutgers 12th in the final AP Poll, once again silencing some doubters.

In 2007, USF, rose to #2 in the BCS rankings. They lost their next three games, however, to drop out of the rankings. They eventually finished the season #21 in the final BCS polls. The Connecticut Huskies, getting as high as #13, and West Virginia remained in the top 25. Cincinnati also rose as high as #15 in the rankings eventually finishing the season with 10 wins and a #17 ranking. Connecticut lost subsequent games and dropped substantially in the rankings, ultimately finishing 25th. On the final day of the season, Pittsburgh upset #2 WVU 13–9 in the 100th edition of the Backyard Brawl to give the Huskies a share of the conference championship, while WVU was stopped on the doorstep of the BCS National Championship Game. In bowl games, WVU upset the Big 12 Champion Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl, despite having lost their highly touted coach, Rich Rodriguez to Michigan less than a month before the game. West Virginia finished the season ranked #6 and Cincinnati finished ranked #17.

Notes on bowl game selection
  • The Big East's BCS representative is not tied directly to a specific BCS Bowl. It is selected to a bowl in the same manner as an at-large team. The BCS may choose select a second team to play in another BCS bowl game.
  • The Gator Bowl has first selection after the BCS between 2006 and 2009, and the Gator Bowl must select a Big East school twice during that four-year span. During the two seasons during which the Gator Bowl opts not to select a Big East team, but rather a Big 12 team, then the highest non-BCS selection goes to the Sun Bowl. A Big East team must be selected to one of the two bowls but cannot be selected to both.
  • Notre Dame is eligible to be chosen in lieu of a Big East team for any non-BCS bowl game. In a separate rule specific only to Notre Dame that doesn't affect the Big East's BCS representative, Notre Dame is eligible to receive a BCS automatic berth if they finish within the Top 8 of the BCS Rankings.

Notes:
1 Football stadiums for Georgetown, Notre Dame, and Villanova are not "conference facilities" as those universities are not members of Big East Football.
2 The University of Louisvillemarker is in the process of a $63 million expansion of Papa John's Cardinal Stadiummarker to 63,600 and constructing a new $350 million downtown waterfront arenamarker that will seat 23,500. Both projects are funded and expected to be complete by 2010.
3 St. John's men generally play their Big East home schedule in Madison Square Garden and their non-conference home schedule on campus at Carnesecca Arena. In 2005-06, St. John's played only one non-conference game at MSG and one Big East game on campus.
4 For certain high-profile home games, Villanova uses the Wachovia Centermarker, and previously used the Wachovia Spectrummarker. In 2005-06, Villanova played three home games at the Wachovia Center and the rest on campus at The Pavilion. In 2006, the Wachovia Center was also a first-round site for the NCAA Tournament. Under NCAA rules, a venue is not considered a home court unless a school plays four or more regular-season games there; this enabled Villanova to play its first two tournament games at the Wachovia Center (but Villanova was not considered the host school for that sub-region — the Atlantic 10 Conference was). This situation occurred again in 2009, with Villanova playing (and winning) its first two tournament games at Wachovia.
5 For Syracuse basketball games in the Carrier Dome, the court is laid out on one end of the field and stands are erected beside it. This makes the Carrier Dome the largest on-campus venue for college basketball in the nation.
6 Late in 2006, Rutgers added approximately 3000 temporary end zone seats that remained for the 2007 season (total 45,000). In 2008, Rutgers began a stadium expansion project which is expected to increase capacity to over 55,000 seats and add luxury and club seats. The premium seating is projected to be ready for the 2008 season and the additional 12,000 end zone seats are expected for the 2009 season. The stadium is also expected to receive a new name as part of the financing package depends on a name sponsorship.
