- Dayton and Saint Louis are in the Atlantic 10 Conference; Following the July 2013 split of the original Big East Conference into two leagues, DePaul and Marquette moved to the non-football conference that retained the Big East name, while Cincinnati moved to the football-sponsoring American Athletic Conference. At the time of the Big East split, Memphis moved from C-USA to The American.
