Several 2014-15 Big East matchups announced

Frank Victores-USA TODAY Sports

A few matchups were announced for the 2014-15 Big East season, including two big rivalry matchups.

107 days from now, the 2014 college basketball season will tip off. Exciting, is it not? And as time continues to trickle by, schedules are becoming that much closer to becoming crystal clear.

Per CBS Sports' college basketball aficionado Jon Rothstein, three matchups involving three different Big East squads were announced on Wednesday. And two of those three games involve two classic rivalries.

The Xavier Musketeers and Cincinnati Bearcats will be meeting in The Crosstown Classic on February 18, 2015 according to Rothstein. The 82nd edition of this rivalry will take place at Fifth Third Arena on the campus of The University of Cincinnati, marking the first time since the 2010-11 season that the two clubs will have met in that venue. Currently, the Bearcats are outpacing the Musketeers in the rivalry, leading the way with an all-time record of 49-32.

Elsewhere, the Temple Owls and Villanova Wildcats will continue their stage of the Philadelphia Big 5 rivalry on December 14, 2014. The matchup will be held inside the halls of the historic Pavilion on the campus of Villanova. Last season, the Wildcats used a victory over the Owls to propel themselves to their first Philadelphia Big 5 title since the 2010-11 season. We'll see if the Owls will be out for revenge after a humiliating defeat a year ago, or if the Wildcats can continue their stranglehold over The City of Brotherly Love.

Finally, a little bit of reminiscing, as a matchup from Big East past has been given the okay to go on in the 2014 and 2015 season. The South Florida Bulls and Seton Hall Pirates will be squaring off in Tampa in 2014, and then in Newark in 2015 according to the CBS college basketball insider. These two teams last met in the 2013 Big East Tournament and, well, let's just hope these two matchups are better than that contest.
