December 11, 2012UCF's 2013 Big East opponents are set.
The Knights' inaugural season will include home visits from USF, Connecticut, Houston and Rutgers and they'll go on the road to play Cincinnati, Louisville, SMU and Temple.
The home and away opponents were part of a league-wide announcement on Tuesday. The full schedule with dates will be released in January or February.
For UCF, the big news is they'll resume their rivalry with USF with a game in Orlando and they also get Rutgers, another team that should be a big home draw.
UCF will be competing in the league's East Division with USF, Connecticut, Cincinnati, Louisville and Rutgers. The West Division lineup consists of Boise State, Houston, Memphis, San Diego State, SMU and Temple.
Geography in the new Big East stretches from coast to coast with Boise State and San Diego State, but the Knights avoid playing both of the western schools. The other team missing from the schedule is Memphis, whom the Knights have played every year in Conference USA since 2005.
The inaugural Big East Championship Game is tentatively slated to be played Saturday, December 7, 2013 at the site of the highest-rated division winner.
UCF's 2013 non-conference schedule consists of home games with South Carolina, Akron and Bethune-Cookman and a road game at FIU.
