BCS Projections: Cincinnati In Commanding Position In Big East

Samuel Chi lists the Cincinnati Bearcats among the biggest winners in his latest roundup of the BCS rankings.

After their comeback victory at Pittsburgh, the Bearcats now have practically a two-game cushion on the rest of the Big East. If they can win three of their last four conference games (no matter in what combination), they will be in a BCS bowl for the second time in three years. That’s certainly not what Brian Kelly had in mind when he ditched Cincinnati for Notre Dame two years ago.

It now looks like the Bearcats are a huge favorite to win the Big East and head to a BCS bowl. Unmentioned here is the fact that things would have been quite different had West Virginia beaten Louisville on Saturday. If that had been the case, the Mountaineers would have been 3-1 in the Big East, with a shot at the Bearcats next week. As it stands, Cincinnati will still be poised for a BCS berth even if it loses.
