Maryland Joining Big Ten, Rutgers Expected To Follow
The Big Ten is expanding to 13.
Trustees at the University of Maryland on Monday voted to accept an invitation to join Ohio State, Michigan, and other Big Ten schools in all sports beginning in the 2014-2015 school year.
Maryland would be by far the most eastern school in the mostly Midwest Big Ten, although Rutgers is expected follow suit by Tuesday, departing the Big East and making it an even 14 in the Big Ten.
