The Big East has set the home and away football schedules for the 2013 season, conference commissioner Mike Aresco announced today.
The 2013 season will be the first for the conference with a two division format. Cincinnati, Connecticut, Louisville, Rutgers, UCF, and USF make up the East Division, while Boise State, Houston, Memphis, San Diego State, SMU, and Temple make up the West Division.
Winners of the East and West Division will meet in the inaugural Big East Football Championship Game. The game will be hosted by one of the teams, presumably by the one with the highest winning percentage in conference play.
“Our new home and away matchups for football in 2013 will create an exciting, competitive, and compelling season, culminating in our first-ever BIG EAST Championship Game,” said Aresco. “I know that our BIG EAST coaches, student-athletes, and fans have been looking forward both to the renewal of traditional rivalries and to great matchups with our newcomers. With games played in some of the nation’s most dynamic college football markets and biggest media centers, we are expecting a season of intense, high-caliber football played on a national stage.”
