Big East announces preliminary 2013 schedule

By Jaclyn Brandt. CREATED Dec 11, 2012

Commissioner Mike Aresco has announced the league opponents and game sites for the 2013 Big East football season – the conference’s first in its new 12-team, two division format.

“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.”

The East and West division winners, determined by final conference record, will meet in the first Big East Football Championship Game, which will be played at the home site of one of the division winners.

The complete 2013 schedule will be announced at a later date.
