West Virginia may be No. 2 in the power rankings, but that sign should be No. 1.

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.

Not a ton of change in the rankings this week. West Virginia's loss to LSU helped South Florida solidify its hold on the top spot, though they still weren't unanimous. Everything else is more or less the status quo -- Pittsburgh wasn't penalized for losing to Notre Dame, though an inactive Louisville fell as Rutgers and Syracuse (technically) won.

UConn is in last because UConn is bad, and they don't deserve nice things.
