Week 13 College Football Standings: UConn Defeats Cincinnati, In Line To Win Big East BCS Berth

The Connecticut Huskies defeated the Cincinnati Bearcats 38-17 today, setting up a critical final week that will determine who wins the Big East and its BCS berth. UConn continues to control its own destiny with the win, and will win the BCS berth if it can defeat South Florida on the road next week. West Virginia, meanwhile, needs to beat Rutgers at home – probably not a particularly tall order – and hope for a UConn loss.

Both UConn and WVU hold tiebreakers against Pitt, so Pitt will have to beat Cincinnati and hope for losses by both UConn and WVU. Nothing is out of the question in the Big East, but WVU losing to Rutgers would be a major shock, so the Panthers’ chances look slim.

Connecticut got a huge game from star running back Jordan Todman, who rushed for 175 yards and three touchdowns. Cincinnati quarterback Zach Collaros threw four interceptions in the Bearcats loss.
