Villanova to join Big East in Football??

PHILADELPHIA – Villanova is studying a proposal to join the Big East Conference in football, the school's athletic director told the Philadelphia Daily News.

"The Big East very recently communicated its interest in adding Villanova as a football member," Wildcats AD Vince Nicastro told the Daily News on Thursday. "As a result, we have decided to embark on an in-depth evaluation of this opportunity."

In a letter to alumni, Villanova president Peter Donohue wrote: "This is a complicated issue with numerous, multi-dimensional factors that come into play, and it is important that we investigate scenarios related to making – or not making – such a move."

The Big East has eight members for football. Villanova is a member of the conference in other sports, including men's and women's basketball. A ninth member would allow the Big East to play eight conference games – four home and four on the road. Right now, teams alternate playing more home than road conference games each year.
