The Temple Owls might still be .500 on the season, but they got a win in their Big East opener against South Florida to put them in the upper half of the Big East standings.

The league is still led by a trio of undefeated frontrunners in Louisville, Cincinnati and Rutgers. Louisville still hasn't started conference play and had the week off, while Cincinnati beat up on Miami (Ohio) to go to 5-0 on the year. Rutgers dominated UConn 19-3 to become the first team in the conference to win two conference games.

Elsewhere, Syracuse beat Pitt to win its first game against FBS competition on the year and move to 2-3 on the year. Here's a look at the overall standings for the conference:
