Big East Football Power Rankings Week Two

Ha ha. Credit: Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

Welcome back to the Big East Football Power Rankings. Every week the editors of SB Nation's Big East blogs will cast their vote in an attempt to measure the current state of the Big East. The results are below.

Let's start at the top where Louisville and South Florida were able to hang on to the top two spots in the rankings, but unlike last week both schools were unanimous choices for their respective spots. It's hard to argue with either ranking as both teams posted impressive wins (for the first week of the season).

Cincinnati didn't play this week, but that didn't stop them from jumping up a spot in the rankings, swapping position with No. 4 Rutgers, whose 12-point win over Tulane didn't exactly impress.

No one was quite sure what to do with UConn, which looked impressive against UMass.... but was playing UMass. The Huskies charted as high as third (thanks Big East Coast Bias!) or as low as seventh (not as much thanks for you On The Banks) and in the end wound up in fifth.

Temple jumped to sixth and an observer might say that was because of their hefty margin of victory over Villanova. That observer would be wrong, because the only reason Temple is in sixth is that they didn't play like Syracuse of Pittsburgh this week.

Syracuse was all over the map. They committed a ton of penalties and looked out of sorts, but they also erased a three-score deficit against Northwestern before promptly blowing the game. Most of our voters decided to not give the Orange the benefit of the doubt and slotted them seventh.

And then there's Pitt, whose two-touchdown loss to FCS Youngstown State was so bad that it was almost impressive. Good luck getting out of last anytime soon Pitt.

Add your your thoughts in the comments and we'll see you back here next week for more rankings. Until then enjoy the end of Big East football, such as it is.
