PROVIDENCE, R.I. (CBSMiami) – The new Big East Conference, whatever it will be called, will play its game on CBS thanks to a new deal between the two entities.

The new conference, which will be made up of several former Big East and Conference USA members, will rename itself later this spring. The conference signed a deal with CBS Sports to televise games through the end of the 2020 season.

CBS will have the first selection from conference and nonconference games including those played at neutral sites. The deal will also provide up to 12 appearances on CBS each season, half of which will be league games.

The new league’s basketball schools will include: Connecticut, Cincinnati, Temple, South Florida, Central Florida, Houston, Memphis, SMU, and Tulane.
