College Football Preseason Rankings 2011: Big East Needs Its Mojo Back
The Big East is typically regarded as the weakest of the six power conferences, and more and more, the Mountain West is looking like strong candidate to replace the Big East as an automatic qualifier.
The Big East’s top team, West Virginia, is second in the “others receiving votes” category, and it is joined by South Florida and Pittsburgh, who received just nine and three votes, respectively.
The Mountaineers seem to have an easy route to the title,but they must avoid the collapse that they showed last season if they want to get back to the BCS.
The Big East’s BCS representative isn’t likely to win its bowl game. However, if any team can do it, it’s West Virginia. The Mountaineers have been there before and are now being called upon to save their conference from even more scrutiny.
For the Big East to gain back any respect, it must pull an upset in its BCS bowl.
