* BIG EAST Conference game

The Cardinals should be the favorites to repeat as champs. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater returns after lighting up the Florida Gators in the Sugar Bowl. The junior could be a Heisman contender after a breakout sophomore season.

Cincinnati will be Lousiville biggest challenger, as the Bearcats narrowly missed out on the automatic BCS bid in 2012. Dual-threat QB Munchie Legaux is coming back for an offense that put up 32.3 points per game.

2013 will be the last year of major conference status for the Big East, as the league will be left out of the big money when college football moves to a four-team playoff system.
