Tulane will join the Big East in all sports, while East Carolina will join the league as a football-only member in 2014, sources told ESPN on Tuesday.

Tulane will make its official announcement at 2 p.m. ET, as will East Carolina at that time.

The reason the Big East opted for 13 schools in 2014 is that the league expects either Louisville or Connecticut to leave for the ACC, sources said. The Cardinals and Huskies are the favorites to replace Maryland, sources said.

How long can the Big East survive as a BCS Conference?

They basically just adopted half of the C-USA over the last couple years.

UConn is probably already begging the ACC to let it replace Maryland. I don't know where Louisville goes, but it doesn't really make much sense for the ACC. It is so far from all of the other schools that the travel costs would rise rather considerably for all of the sports programs. Notre Dame is supposedly bringing something to the table, but I am not really sure what Louisville can offer them. They need to replace the D.C market with something similar I suppose.

Big East won't be a BCS conference within five years, if that.
It's already been reported that when the "playoff" system starts, the best team out of the Big East, CUSA, MAC, MWC, Sun Belt and any remaining Independents will get the Big East's current spot in the access bowls.

Everyone knows the Big East is a mediocre conference. It will just be official in a couple years.
