Big East sets home/away schedules

The Big East released its home and away schedules for the 2013 season on Tuesday, and most notably, the league has departing members Rutgers and Louisville taking trips to play at Boise State.

Next season will be the first featuring a 12-team Big East format and two divisions, with new members Boise State, San Diego State, UCF, SMU, Houston and Memphis joining. But it is another lame duck year for the league as Rutgers and Louisville have announced their intentions to join new conferences -- Rutgers will move to the Big Ten and Louisville to the ACC.

Their departure dates are up in the air, pending a resolution with the league. Rutgers already has filed a lawsuit against the Big East to get out of the required 27-month waiting period.

Among the other notable highlights:

Cincinnati and SMU both play at San Diego State and USF, taking trips to both sides of the country. USF and UCF do not have to take a trip out West, as neither plays at Boise State or San Diego State.

The Broncos get Houston, Louisville, Memphis and Rutgers at home, but must travel to Cincinnati, San Diego State, SMU and Temple. That gives them two trips into the Eastern Time Zone.

As for Louisville -- expected to be the preseason favorite yet again -- the Cardinals get UCF, Memphis and San Diego State at home. Rutgers has to play at Boise State and Louisville. Memphis is the only other school that has to play those two teams on the road.
