The Big East revealed its 2012-13 schedule today, and DePaul and Notre Dame will play each other twice as "mirror opponents."
This year's schedule features four home-and-home opponents for each team, instead of three, because of West Virginia's move to the Big 12 Conference.
Dates and times have not been set yet.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
The Fighting Irish went 22-12 last season before falling to Xavier in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Junior forward Jack Cooley led the way, and the Irish will return their five leading scorers from a year ago.
Home opponents: Cincinnati, Connecticut, DePaul, Georgetown, Louisville, Rutgers, St. John's, Seton Hall, Villanova
Away opponents: Cincinnati, DePaul, Louisville, Marquette, Pittsburgh, Providence, St. John's, South Florida, Syracuse

DePaul Blue Demons
The Blue Demons saw some improvement last season under first year head coach Oliver Purnell. Led by sophomores Cleveland Melvin and Brandon Young, the Blue Demons went 12-19 (3-15).
Home opponents: Cincinnati, Connecticut, Louisville, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, St. John's, Seton Hall, Villanova
Away opponents: Connecticut, Georgetown, Marquette, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Providence, St. John's, South Florida, Syracuse
