The Rutgers Scarlet Knights and Louisville Cardinals kept it moving with conference wins, but the Cincinnati Bearcats dropped their first game of the season, losing to Toledo in a non-conference matchup.

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights and Louisville Cardinals remained undefeated, but the Cincinnati Bearcats dropped a shocker as they fell to a MAC squad, their first loss of the year.

The Pitt Panthers still have yet to win a Big East game, but they handled their business in a non-conference in a matchup against 1-6 Buffalo. The Bulls didn't muster a touchdown and Pittsburgh rolled to a 20-6 win. Pitt is joined at the bottom of the conference by South Florida and Connecticut, who are also 1-3 in conference, but Pitt has the best overall record of those teams at 3-4 and is still in the hunt for a bowl bid.

On the top end of the conference, Rutgers coasted to a 35-10 win over Temple, while Louisville escaped from a matchup with South Florida with a 27-25 win. Cincy's loss came as a surprise, as the ranked Bearcats were the expected winners in a matchup with the Toledo Rockets, but they lost the road game against a team that is now 7-1 in the MAC with their only loss coming to Arizona Week 1.

Here's a look at the full standings:
