Cincinnati's victory keeps West Virginia's BCS hopes alive. Louisville is 5-2 in the Big East, and WVU and Cincinnati are both now 4-2. To go to a BCS bowl, the Mountaineers need to beat South Florida in their final game, and they also need Cincinnati to keep winning, forcing a three-way tie with Louisville atop the Big East. If that were to happen, WVU would likely be BCS-bound, because the three teams' records against each other are all 1-1, and West Virginia ranks the highest in the BCS standings. If the Mountaineers lose their final game, they're out, and if Cincinnati had lost Saturday or if Cincinnati loses its final game against UConn, the Mountaineers are also out, because they lost to Louisville head-to-head.
