It's official: TU is a member of the Big East Conference.

The announcement came during a press conference Tuesday morning with new TU athletic director Derrick Gragg and TU President Steadman Upham. There has been speculation about the TU-Big East possibility since December.

TU’s switch to the Big East is expected to result in a substantial revenue spike for the athletic department.
