After four weeks of play, the Big East standings feature Rutgers and Cincinnati leading the league, while No. 19 Louisville sits right on their heels.
We are now through four weeks of the 2012 college football season. Many felt the Big East was wide open at the start of the year, and that appears to be the case if out-of-conference play is any indiction. As for the hometown Pitt Panthers, the team is struggling with the departure of Todd Graham to ASU, and now they feature a 2-2 record with a conference loss to Cincinnati.
Just one other conference game has been played this season, which featured Rutgers beating South Florida in Week 2. Rutgers and the aforementioned Cincinnati Bearcats are tied for the league lead and are undefeated, as is Louisville. The Cardinals are yet to play a Big East game, but they feature a 4-0 record and are ranked No. 19 in the nation.
Here is a complete look at the Big East standings as of Monday, Sept. 24.
