West Virginia Unanimously Ranked Best Big East Team By Big East Bloggers

Not that it's any great shock, but SB Nation's Big East bloggers have unanimously ranked West Virginia the No. 1 team in the conference. WVU has only one loss so far, and it's to LSU. The Mountaineers look a lot stronger than any other team in the Big East, and there's no obvious reason they can't run the table on the rest of their conference schedule. Here's a look at the bloggers' overall rankings.

1. West Virginia
2. Cincinnati
3. Rutgers
4. South Florida
5. Pittsburgh
6. Syracuse
7. Louisville
8. UConn

That's a disappointing showing for a Pitt team that blew out South Florida, but the Panthers themselves got blown out by Rutgers and only narrowly defeated lowly Maine.

The Cincinnati-South Florida matchup on October 22 should be interesting - the Bearcats haven't really beaten anyone significant yet, and the Bulls are a pretty good team that only has one loss, albeit a really bad one.

Rutgers' next two matchups are against Navy and Louisville, so the Scarlet Knights and Mountaineers could both enter their matchup on October 29 with both teams 6-1.
