USF football to close '13 season at UCF, Rutgers



The Big East unveiled its 2013 football schedules on Wednesday, and USF has a few wrinkles, closing the season with a Friday game at Central Florida and a Dec. 7 trip to bid farewell to Rutgers.

The Bulls have one other weeknight game on the schedule -- they'll spend Halloween in Houston, playing the Cougars on Thursday, Oct. 31. USF's Big East opener is Oct. 5 at home against Cincinnati, and the other home games are Louisville on Oct. 26, Memphis on Nov. 16 and SMU on Nov. 23.

USF plays all four nonconference games in August and September -- opening against I-AA McNeese State, traveling to Michigan State, hosting Florida Atlantic and getting a week off before its final scheduled game with Miami, in Tampa on Sept. 28.
