Big East Football Schedule, Week 5: Bowling Green Vs. West Virginia, Syracuse Vs. Rutgers, And More

Here’s a look at the Big East football schedule for Week 5. All games are on ESPN3.

The Pitt Panthers knocked off the No. 16-ranked South Florida Bulls on Thursday, 44-17.

In Saturday’s action, 3-1 Syracuse hosts 2-1 Rutgers at noon, with the Orange as slight favorites, while 3-1 Cincinnati plays Miami (Ohio) at 1:00 and are two-touchdown favorites despite being on the road.

Then there are a trio of games at 3:30. 3-1 West Virginia hosts Bowling Green in what should be a relatively easy game for the Mountaineers. 2-1 Louisville, meanwhile, hosts Marshall. And 2-2 UConn has a home game against Western Michigan.

The South Florida / Pitt game was the first Big East conference matchup, and Rutgers vs. Pitt is the second. There will continue to be a couple of conference games in each of the next two weeks.
