2012 College Football Schedule: Syracuse faces struggling Cincinnati

Rich Schultz

The Syracuse Orange have a very outside chance at a Big East championship, but it's still a chance as they're 3-1. They'll need to win against Cincinnati to keep it alive.

The Syracuse Orange look to keep their strong play in the Big East as they head into a matchup against the Cincinnati Bearcats.

Not much looked good for Doug Marrone's squad as they started the season by losing all but one of their nonconference game, but the Big East has been kind to the Orange. They're 3-1 in conference, coming off a 37-36 win against South Florida with Ryan Nassib tossing for four touchdowns and 328 yards. Cincinnati looked like one of the better teams in the conference at 5-0, but they've dropped two straight, first losing to Toledo 29-23, then dropping an overtime game to an undefeated Louisville squad.

Rutgers is off for the weekend after losing their first game of the year to Kent State. This weekend's Big East slate features three conference games in addition to a matchup between Pittsburgh and No.3 Notre Dame.

Here's a look at Saturday's full Big East schedule:

Syracuse vs. Cincinnati, 12 p.m. ESPN3/Big East Network

Temple vs. No. 10 Louisville, 12 p.m. ABC/ESPN3

Pittsburgh vs. No. 3 Notre Dame, 3:30 p.m,, NBC

Connecticut vs. South Florida, 7 p.m., ESPNU/WatchESPN
