Big East will look west for future expansion. Intends to have two seven team divisions. Will offer Villanova financial assistance to explore a move to FBS football. - One Bronco Nation Under God

While Marinatto said the league will now "pause" on expansion matters, he also said the Big East's "intention" is to have two football divisions of seven teams apiece, which means bringing another program into the fold. "We're looking specifically to a western partner to help us with that," Marinatto said. --- Question: Memphis is "west". So just how far west is "west"? Tulsa? Air Force? UNLV? --- UPDATE: Officials went out of their way to applaud Villanova's willingness to bring in a neighboring program and share the Philadelphia market. The Big East also announced Wednesday that it is offering Villanova financial assistance in its exploration of a move to the Football Bowl Subdivision. "This move enhances our rivalry and recognizes the equity that Villanova has built for the Big East in Philadelphia over the last three decades," Villanova president Fr. Peter Donohue said. --- Question: If Nova moves up will that mean a sixteenth school to round things out?
