BOZICH BLOG: Louisville 2013 Highlight -- Trip To (29-2) Boise State

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – The University of Louisville football team won't complete its 2012 season until the Cardinals' Jan. 2 game with Florida in the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

But it's already time to discuss 2013.

The Cards arrived a year ahead of schedule this season. Next season was supposed to be the one when Charlie Strong's team made a major push into the national debate. That's why the Tuesday announcement by the Big East of the 2013 conference opponents and home/road games is worth consideration.

Boise State will enter the Big East as the most likely challenger to Louisville's plans to win the league – and the Cards learned today they will play at Boise State next season. No date or time for the game yet.

They will also visit Cincinnati, Connecticut and Willie Taggart University (South Florida).

Louisville's home Big East schedule is not as sexy: Central Florida, Memphis, Rutgers and San Diego State.

I checked Boise's record under Chris Peterson at home the last five seasons: 29-2.

The Broncos were beaten by San Diego State, 21-19, this season, and by TCU, 36-35, last season.

That's it.  Tough opponent. Tough trip. Tough environment. Not your usual Big East away fare.

With Tommy Tuberville taking over for Butch Jones, Cincinnati also figures to be a formidable challenger, especially to Louisville's goal of winning the Big East East. The league grows to 12 teams and splits into six-team divisions next season. A league championship game will determine the team that earns the Big East spot in a Bowl Championship Series game.

Going to Boise will be a boost for Louisville's strength of schedule. But the Cards' task of winning the East Division of the Big East got tougher today. Here is the complete Big East football home and away schedule breakdown:
