2012 Big East Football Standings: Louisville remains unbeaten after crushing Temple

The Louisville Cardinals won a convincing game over the Temple Owls, their ninth win of the season, but their first in some time by a comfortable margin. Rutgers still has yet to lose a conference game as well.

The Temple Owls were no match for the now-No. 9 Louisville Cardinals, who scored 28 unanswered points to earn a 45-17 win and stay undefeated at 9-0 on the year.

Teddy Bridgewater's five touchdown passes stuffed the statsheet as the Cardinals moved to 9-0 (4-0) on the season. Since Cincinnati and Rutgers lost games against MAC teams in Toledo and Kent State, respectively, Louisville has been the last squad in the Big East to be undefeated. Cincinnati since dropped an additional game, a 34-31 loss to the Cardinals to put them at 6-2 on the year. Louisville's decisive victory this week was rare: their previous six wins had come by 10 points or fewer.

The conference championship will likely come down to a matchup between the Cardinals and Scarlet Knights in the last week of the season, as neither team has dropped a conference game yet.

Here's a look at the full conference standings after Week 10:

Louisville 4-0 9-0
Rutgers 4-0 7-1
Cincinnati 2-1 6-2
Syracuse 3-2 4-5
Temple 2-3 3-5
Pittsburgh 1-3 4-5
South Florida 1-4 3-6
Connecticut 0-4 3-6
