Full 2012 Big East Football Schedule Released

The 2012 Big East football schedule has now joined us, now featuring the return of the Temple Owls. The new guys will make their conference re-debut against the South Florida Bulls on Oct. 6. The conference's first game will come in opening weekend, with the Cincinnati Bearcats welcoming the Pittsburgh Panthers on Sept. 6.

The Boise St. Broncos and assorted other geographical curiosities won't join until next year, in case you're looking for them. The Syracuse Orange and Pitt will likewise not leave just yet. The West Virginia Mountaineers and TCU Horned Frogs are the only exits from this year's schedule.
