College Football 2012 schedule: Pitt Panthers 1 of 7 Big East teams in action

Kevin Hoffman-US PRESSWIRE

The Pitt Panthers are in action this weekend along with conference leaders No. 15 Rutgers and No. 16 Louisville.

Connecticut is the only Big East team not in action this week as the conference standings continue to take form.

No. 15 Rutgers currently sits atop the Big East, tied with No. 16 Louisville. The Red Raiders take their undefeated record into a matchup with the Kent State Golden Flashes, who sit atop the MAC at 6-1 overall and 4-0 in conference play.

No. 16 Louisville, which also is undefeated, plays a home game Friday against the Cincinnati Bearcats. Cincinnati fell out of the rankings this week after losing to the Toledo Rockets, 29-23.

Louisville and Rutgers do not meet until the final game of the regular season, which may very well turn into a de facto conference championship game.

The Pittsburgh Panthers have a home matchup against Temple this Saturday. The Panthers look for their first conference win, as they are winless in three Big East matchups thus far.

Below is the complete Big East schedule for Week 9
