Cincinnati placekicker Jacob Rogers needs 26 points to become the Bearcats’ career leading scorer.

Would you believe that Connecticut’s win over Vanderbilt on Saturday was just the second win by a Big East team over a BCS opponent all season? Okay, I believe it too. (Insert sad emoticon here.)

The head coaching hire made by Louisville this past offseason is still under the microscope.

Pittsburgh safety Dom DeCicco has moved to linebacker due to injuries and replacements. It all worked out for the Panthers’ defense on Saturday.

Rutgers honored a former student, Tyler Clementi, who tragically killed himself last week.

We will soon find out how to rate South Florida within the Big East as the Bulls open Big East play this weekend against Syracuse.

Since the present alignment of the Big East was set, Syracuse is a weak 4-31 against conference foes. (That’s worse than Baylor’s conference record!)

Maybe the Big East will see a ranked team again soon—West Virginia is at No. 26 right now.
