MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Memphis will maintain the same football and men's basketball ticket prices next year as it moves into the Big East.

In a statement released Monday by the university, Memphis athletic department Tom Bowen said school officials opted against raising ticket prices because "it is important to say thank you to our fans and supporters who have remained so loyal to the Tigers over the years."

Memphis' 2013 home football schedule will include Big East foes Cincinnati, SMU, Temple and UCF as well as non-conference opponents Arkansas State, Duke and Tennessee-Martin. Dates for these games haven't been announced. The Tigers' 2013-14 men's basketball schedule hasn't been released.
