Big East Football Standings 2012: Pittsburgh still without a conference win

Mark Konezny-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Pittsburgh Panthers have struggled in 2012, and the team is still searching for their first Big East victory of the season.

The Big East is competitive like always in 2012, but unfortunately for the Pittsburgh Panthers they aren't keeping themselves in the race.

Pittsburgh has been playing better football lately, but still finds itself 0-3 in the Big East, all alone in last place. Last Saturday, the Panthers fell to the No. 18 Louisville Cardinals in a 45-35 shootout at home. The week before, Pittsburgh almost beat the Syracuse Orange but were clipped, 14-13.

At the top of the conference are the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, one of the true cinderellas this season. Behind quarterback Gary Nova, the Scarlet Knights are undefeated and moving up in the rankings.

Two other teams in the conference are also unbeaten in the Cincinnati Bearcats and Louisville Cardinals.

Another surprise team in the Big East are the Temple Owls, who have come out of nowhere since re-joining the league this year. The Owls have impressed, beating the likes of the Connecticut Huskies and South Florida Bulls.

Here's a full look at the standings:

  1. Rutgers (3-0) 6-0
  2. Temple (2-0) 3-2
  3. Louisville (1-0) 6-0
  4. Cincinnati (1-0) 5-0
  5. Syracuse (1-1) 2-4
  6. UConn (0-2) 3-4
  7. South Florida (0-2) 2-4
  8. Pittsburgh (0-3) 2-4
