The USF Board of Trustees will meet today to examine the possibility of USF joining the Big East.
Michael Reich, director of media relations at USF, said the Board will get information from USF President Judy Genshaft.
“The president will be talking with them about her meeting with the Big East presidents in New York. She will fill them in,” Reich said.

The meeting will be in the Phyllis P. Marshall Center in Room 296 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.

There were stretches where we played […]
