2012 Big East Football standings: Rutgers sits atop conference following Louisville's loss

Elsa

Examining the Big East standings following a busy weekend of action. For the first time all season, one team sits alone at the top.

The Big East has been the weakest of the six BCS conferences this season, but that has not prevented the teams in contention for the league title from making things interesting. Following a wild weekend full of upsets and last-minute victories, it's the Rutgers Scarlet Knights that sit atop the standings.

Rutgers is a perfect 4-0 against the Big East this season, and has an overall record of 8-1. Louisville entered last week No. 9 in the rankings and tied atop the conference, but a blowout loss to Syracuse has dropped them one-half game behind the Knights at 4-1.

The Cincinnati Bearcats are right on their heels with a 3-1 mark in conference play. Syracuse improved their record to 5-5 with the over the weekend, and are now 4-2 in league play.

The rest of the Big East teams are under .500 this season. Temple is now 2-4 in conference play and are 3-6 overall. Connecticut, Pittsburgh and South Florida all have one win and four losses.
