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.
