Big East Football Standings: Title Race Clearer After Saturday

There wasn’t a lot of pretty football played in the Big East on Saturday, but there were a pair of exciting, tight games and the conference title race became clearer.

Big East Conference Standings

(updated 11.14.2010 at 1:44 AM EST)

Below are the scenarios on what needs to happen for each of the teams that still have a shot — I am not including Louisville, Rutgers and Cincinnati, which all lost in Week 11.

Pittsburgh (5-4, 3-1 Big East)

Win out, or beat South Florida (Saturday, 12 p.m. on ESPN 2 or 3) and West Virginia (Week 13), and Connecticut loses one of last three games.

Syracuse (7-3, 4-2)

Beat Connecticut on Saturday (7:30 p.m. on ESPNU).
Pittsburgh loses two of its last three games (at USF, West Virginia, at Cincinnati).

West Virginia (6-3, 2-2)

Win out (at Louisville, at Pittsburgh, Rutgers).
Syracuse lose to UConn.
UConn lose to Cincinnati (Week 13) or USF (Week 14).

UConn (5-4, 2-2)

Win out (at SU, Cincinnati, USF).
Pittsburgh loses one of its last three games.

South Florida (5-4, 2-2)

Win last two conference games (Pittsburgh, Connecticut).
Syracuse loses to Connecticut (Saturday).
West Virginia loses one of its last three games.

Once again, it’s a mess. Things will get clearer after the Week 12 games. Or at least, I hope.
