Big East Football Standings 2012: Rutgers remains on top, Cincinnati loses

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights and Louisville Cardinals are the last undefeated teams in the Big East, as the Cincinnati Bearcats lost a surprise non-conference game, falling 29-23 to the Toledo Rockets.

There are only two undefeated teams left in the Big East, as the Cincinnati Bearcats dropped their first game of the year, a loss to the Toledo Rockets.

Rutgers kept themselves in the ranks of the unbeaten by holding off Temple, winning 35-10 and giving the Owls their first conference loss in their current stint in the Big East. They're the only team to have even played four conference games after Week 8, and one of only three not to lost any. Louisville stayed undefeated as well, but barely held off a South Florida team that is now 2-5 on the year without any conference wins, eking out a 27-25 victory.

The loss for Cincinnati drops the Bearcats to 5-1 on the year, but technically doesn't change their status in the conference standings. Since the game was against a MAC team, they're still 1-0 in conference, although it hurts their ranking nationally. The Bearcats could easily take home the league title with wins against Rutgers and Louisville.

Here's a look at the full conference standings:
