The Pittsburgh Panthers dropped to 1-4 in Big East play with their loss to Connecticut on Friday. The Panthers are now tied for the worst conference record in the Big East.

Connecticut's win was its first in conference play, bringing the Huskies' Big East record to 1-4 and tying them with Pittsburgh and South Florida. The loss was a big blow to the Panthers bowl hopes, as now Pittsburgh must win both of its final two games to become bowl eligible. The Panthers are the only team in the Big East to have a positive point differential, but not have a winning record in conference play.

There was also some shakeup atop the Big East standings this week as Louisville fell from the top spot after the Cardinals lost to Syracuse on Saturday. The loss was Louisville's first of the season and dropped them behind Rutgers, who remain undefeated in conference play.

Here is a closer look at the complete Big East standings.
