Rutgers is joining the Big Ten, leaving the Big East behind and cashing in on the school's investment in a football program that only 10 years ago seemed incapable of competing at the highest level.
Rutgers has been competing in the Big East since 1991. But the league has been picked apart by realignment. The move follows Maryland's announcement Monday that it was joining the Big Ten in 2014. Rutgers' entry date is expected to line up with Maryland.
