Big East Football Power Rankings: Week One

New, 14 comments

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.

I love the opening ballot of a ranking system because it's all speculation and the best chance we'll get all year to see everyone's biases and levels of homerism. Sure, everyone can put aside their biases and vote West Virginia first (well, everyone except South Florida blog Voodoo Five who voted for..... South Florida). There is also a general sense that Pittsburgh will be pretty good and UConn will struggle, but still, it's all wide open. 

The rankings are below, and while UConn is last, I'm going to blame at least part of that on On The Banks juicing Rutgers' numbers by having them third. 

We're launching today to coincide with the start of the football season. Future updates will be every Monday.

1. West Virginia (6): 55 points

T-2. Pittsburgh: 45 points 

T-2. South Florida (1): 45 points

4. Cincinnati: 30 points

5. Syracuse: 26 points

6. Louisville: 21 points

7. Rutgers: 17 points

8. UConn: 13 points

Individual ballots are after the jump.
