But UCF might be able to play a current Big East team and former rival as early as next year. Hitt added that he had been in discussions with USF athletic director Doug Woolard about renewing their series in 2012 because of scheduling issues. "He was very cordial and even said, `Look, we may have a vacancy on our schedule next year. Maybe we could start that series next year,’" Hitt said. "There’s no reason we can’t have a good rivalry where we fight it out on the field, but there’s a lot of mutual respect." ===== Any chance that opening is 9/29?
