NEW YORK (AP) -- Three people with knowledge of the meeting say the presidents and athletic directors from the Big East football schools will meet Tuesday night in New York City to discuss the league's future.

USA Today first reported the meeting.

The Big East is trying to figure out what's next now that Pittsburgh and Syracuse have announced they are leaving for the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The remaining Big East football schools are West Virginia, Cincinnati, Connecticut, Rutgers, Louisville and South Florida. TCU is set to join the Big East next season, and its leaders also will take part in the meeting.
