The Big East released its 2013 football schedule on Wednesday, allowing fans everywhere to complete their college football calendar for the upcoming season.

The 2013 alignment of includes UCF, Cincinnati, Connecticut, Houston, Louisville, Memphis, Rutgers, SMU, USF and Temple. While league officials are in the process of negotiating the Catholic 7 split, coaching staffs at the 10 schools are focused on the season ahead.

Each team will play eight conference games and four nonconference games, adding one date to the seven-game conference schedule in recent years. The move to 10 teams also removes the true round-robin format. SMU, for example, will avoid playing reigning conference champion Louisville in its first season of Big East play.

Check out the team-by-team breakdowns below and let us know which teams you think has the easiest/hardest schedule for 2013. You can chime in using the comment section below or tell us on Twitter (@EyeOnCFB). [NOTES: All times ET; * designates a Big East conference game]
