Considering the depth of the league the Big East schedule was going to be difficult no matter how it was put together for the USF women’s basketball team, but at least now Jose Fernandez and his squad know what lies ahead in terms of home and road matchups after the conference announced the pairings.

Six of the Bulls eight road opponents advanced to the postseason last year, including Final Four participants Connecticut and Notre Dame. The road slate also features matchups against 2010-11 NCAA tournament teams Louisville, Marquette and St. John’s, as well as WNIT participant Syracuse.

DePaul, Georgetown, Rutgers and West Virginia, all NCAA tournament squads last season, highlight USF’s home conference matchups. Of course, USF will be playing in a home-away-from home as all home games this season will played played at alternate venues as the Sun Dome undergoes $35.6 million in renovations.

USF did catch a break with its repeat opponent, which the Bulls will play both at home and on the road, by getting paired with Seton Hall, which finished at the bottom of the league’s regular season standings last season.

Here is the full breakdown (dates for the game have yet to be announced):

Home games: DePaul, Georgetown, Pittsburgh, Providence, Rutgers, Villanova, West Virginia
Away games: Cincinnati, Connecticut, Louisville, Marquette, Notre Dame, St. John’s, Syracuse
Repeat opponent (home and away): Seton Hall
