Boise State will be in the Big East West division with San Diego State, Houston, SMU, Memphis and Temple, the league announced Tuesday.
The East Division will have Rutgers, Connecticut, Cincinnati, Louisville, South Florida and Central Florida.
The champs will meet in a conference title game at the home of the highest-ranked divisional champ.
ESPN.com's Brett McMurphy reported the divisional alignment earlier in the day.
"My goals have been from the very beginning to minimize travel, to make sure we keep some natural rivalries and to make sure that the divisions have clear identities," Big East Commissioner Mike Aresco said during a visit to Boise last month. "I think sometimes you see divisional play where there's not a clear identity. You don't know who's in this division or that division."
The Big East will announce home-and-away games on Dec. 3. Boise State will play all five opponents in its division and three from the East.
The divisional alignment will be revisited before 2015, Aresco said, when Navy joins the league.
The league could get away from geographic divisions at that point. McMurphy reported a proposed Blue Division would be Boise State, Cincinnati, Central Florida, Houston, Rutgers, Temple and the 14th team. A Red Division would consist of Louisville, Connecticut, Memphis, Navy, San Diego State, South Florida and SMU.
