BIG EAST: Navy and Air Force are the top choices for Big East expansion, but as football-only members, a person with knowledge of the discussions said on condition of anonymity because the conference does not want to disclose its plans publicly.

Navy is an independent and has played in a bowl eight straight seasons. Air Force plays in the Mountain West Conference and has been to a bowl each of the last four years.

East Carolina of Conference USA has applied for membership in the Big East, which is regrouping after Syracuse and Pittsburgh joined the Atlantic Coast Conference.
