PROVIDENCE, R.I. —

The Big East conference will have a new name when it plays games on CBS.

The conference that plans to rename itself this spring has signed a deal with CBS Sports to televise basketball games through the end of the season in 2020. CBS will have the first selection from conference and nonconference games, including those played at neutral sites.

The conference did not reveal financial terms of the deal, which provides up to 12 appearances on CBS each season, half of which will be league games. Starting in 2014, the league's basketball lineup will include Connecticut, Cincinnati, Temple, South Florida, Central Florida, Houston, Memphis, SMU and Tulane.
