The Big East and UConn have had recent discussions about the Huskies joining the conference, multiple sources told FanRag Sports.

FanRag Sports reported last week that UConn had looked into joining the conference and one source confirmed on Wednesday that the Big East would take the Huskies in all sports.

The issue then for UConn would be to find a home for its football program, which wouldn’t be able to join the Big East because the doesn’t league’s participants do not have football.

“The Big East would take UConn in everything, but they need to resolve what they’re going to do with football,” one source said. “That’s the only thing that’s standing in the way of a marriage.”

Multiple sources told FanRag Sports that Big East basketball coaches have been in major favor of the league’s double round-robin format and one source confirmed on Wednesday that the Big East would be willing to expand to 20 league games if and when UConn became a member in men’s basketball.
