Believe it or not, Rutgers still has a shot at a Big East title this season.
Obviously, the Scarlet Knights would have to beat Connecticut and Cincinnati. That would bring their conference record to 5-2.
Cincinnati still has WVU on the slate, along with games at Rutgers, at Syracuse and against UConn. If they lose to Rutgers and someone else, both teams would have a 5-2 record and Rutgers would own the tiebreaker.
Louisville still has games against Pittsburgh, at Connecticut and at South Florida. If Louisville stumbles during two of those final three games, they will be out of the race with three losses (4-3).
Now, WVU also beat Rutgers so they'll have to lose at least one of their final games. They travel to Cincinnati, take on rival Pittsburgh in Morgantown then finally head south to Tampa to play the Bulls.
Connecticut has Louisville and Rutgers at home before heading to Cincinnati. Connecticut would need tons of help, but with only two losses have a shot themselves.
Finally, if Pittsburgh wins out and Rutgers does as well, RU would have the tie breaker on them.
Overall, don't get your hopes up Scarlet Knight fans because I don't expect both Cincinnati or Louisville to fall and if WVU wins out, they will move ahead of Rutgers too. Basically, RU needs to win out and then it's time to root for Pitt, USF and Syracuse against everyone else.
