The Big Ten will soon have 14 schools. Rutgers hits the Big East ejector seat, and lands in the Big Ten. A big move up for Rutgers. Rutgers announced its decision Tuesday at a campus news conference attended by Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany, Rutgers President Robert Barchi and Iowa President Sally Mason.
