ILLINOIS -- The NCAA's Big Ten could soon become the Big 13 if a Senate proposal adds a third state university to the twelve team conference. Proponents say the idea is to keep more Illinois' students attending college in the state.

Illinois State and Southern Illinois University Edwardsville are two campuses in consideration if the plan becomes law. The bill is now in the full Senate.
