Conference USA announces divisional alignment, 2013 opponents

Conference USA announced its divisional alignments and 2013 football opponents on Tuesday afternoon. The league, which has undergone a major face-lift due to the shifting tides of other conferences, welcomes newcomers Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Louisiana Tech, Middle Tennessee, North Texas and UTSA this fall. And the Conference USA isn't done yet, either. Tulane will leave for the Big East in 2014, Tulsa appears on the way out the door as well, and Old Dominion will join the conference in 2014.

As things stand now, the 14-team conference will play six divisional games and two cross-division opponents, with each division winner playing in the Conference USA Championship on Dec. 7. Each division will be comprised as follows:

East Division

East Carolina
Florida Atlantic
Florida International
Marshall
Middle Tennessee
Southern Miss
UAB

West Division

Louisiana Tech
Rice
North Texas
Tulane
Tulsa
UTEP
UTSA
