Notes: 1 For certain high- profile home games, Cincinnati uses the Cincinnati Bengals' Paul Brown Stadium. In 2. 01. 0, Cincinnati hosted the University of Oklahoma at Paul Brown Stadium.
In 2. 01. 1, Cincinnati used Paul Brown Stadium as an alternate home field for games against Louisville and West Virginia. Late in 2. 00. 6, Rutgers added approximately 3,0. In 2. 00. 8, Rutgers began a stadium expansion project which is expected to increase capacity to over 5. The premium seating is projected to be ready for the 2. The stadium is also expected to receive a new name as part of the financing package depends on a name sponsorship.
St. John's men generally play their Big East home schedule in Madison Square Garden and their non- conference home schedule on campus at Carnesecca Arena. In 2. 00. 5–0. 6, St. John's played only one non- conference game at MSG and one Big East game on campus. For Syracuse basketball games in the Carrier Dome, the court is laid out on one end of the field and stands are erected beside it. This makes the Carrier Dome the largest on- campus venue for college basketball in the nation. For certain high- profile home games, Villanova uses the Wells Fargo Center, and previously used the Spectrum.
In 2. 00. 5–0. 6, Villanova played three home games at the Wells Fargo Center and the rest on campus at The Pavilion. In 2. 00. 6, the Wells Fargo Center was also a first- round site for the NCAA Tournament. Under NCAA rules, a venue is not considered a home court unless a school plays four or more regular- season games there; this enabled Villanova to play its first two tournament games at the Wells Fargo Center (but Villanova was not considered the host school for that sub- region – the Atlantic 1. Conference was). This situation occurred again in 2. Villanova playing (and winning) its first two tournament games at Wells Fargo Center. See alsoReferences^"2.
