The upcoming Big East expansion in 2013 will give the league an East and West Division, as well as the first Big East Championship Game. Central Florida, Houston, Memphis and SMU will arrive from Conference USA, while Boise State and San Diego State are joining the league as football members only.

Rutgers and Louisville are on the way out of the conference, but the league has already tapped Tulane and East Carolina to maintain the minimum 12 teams required for a football championship game.

According to the Big East, the East and West division winners will be determined by final conference record. Those teams will meet in the first Big East Football Championship Game, which will be played at the home site of one of the division winners. This is a similar model to the Pac-12, which also plays the title game at the home of the division winner holding the better conference record.
