Big East Must Follow List
Creighton officially joined the Big East today, July 1, 2013.
What better way to get to know CU and its nine conference brethren than by compiling a comprehensive list of websites, message boards, and Twitter accounts that cover the 10 schools?
These resources provide best information about the teams in the Big East. This list will evolve over time, but this is a great spot for everyone to get started on the right foot.
