Big East Football Power Rankings Week 7

 

Every week the SB Nation Big East Football Blogs cast their vote in an attempt to measure the current state of the Big East. The results are below.

Last week in this space, I wrote this:

Syracuse is sitting pretty in second place and based on their resume, they certainly deserve to be there. However, I doubt anyone actually believes they are the second best team in the conference.

Sean, over at Troy Nunes is an Absolute Magician, called me out, and made a point I can't really to argue with:

If you don't think Syracuse deserves to be No. 2, don't vote us No. 2.

Fair enough. Luckily, no one had that problem this week, as Syracuse went out and acted like the team I love to hate, getting crushed by Pittsburgh 45-14. That sent the Orange tumbling to sixth and launched the Panthers back up near the top of the poll.

West Virginia still has a complete stranglehold on the top, while South Florida is doing its best impression of Louisville circa September.

Rutgers and Cincinnati swapped places as the Bearcats seem to be building a bit of momentum, and UConn held onto seventh place thanks to a heroic effort in their bye week.

Fun final note, Voodoo Five took advantage of Rutgers' close win over Army to slot the Scarlet Knights last. Last week they had them third. If you can't admire hate like that, what can you admire?
