Big East football schools will get almost all of a $110 million pot in a deal that will allow seven departing basketball schools to keep the name Big East and start playing in their own conference next season, a person familiar with the negotiations says. They will receive approximately $100 million under the agreement, most of which will go to holdover members Connecticut, South Florida and Cincinnati. (AP Photo/Jessica Hill, File)
