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