The race for the Big East championship is about as confusing as the future of the beleaguered BCS conference. With just a week remaining in the season — and maybe not much more for a conference that is being poached again — the Big East is on the verge of a four-way tie.

Now Rutgers controls its own destiny. If the Scarlet Knights beat Louisville Thursday night then the drama is over and Rutgers will represent the Big East in a BCS bowl. It starts to get interesting if the Cardinals win and then Cincinnati wins at UConn on Saturday then we get the four-way tie with Rutgers, Louisville, Cincinnati and Syracuse. ...

So Much For The Big East Being Worth Something

Season going downhill for U of L football

The Pitt win was...
