Big East Tops ACC, Big Ten in Conference Power Rankings

Posted on Oct 16 2012 - 9:26am by Charlie Roth









ESPN released their conference power rankings on Monday, and it looks like the Big East is starting to gain some well-deserved respect. Usually unanimously perceived as the worst BCS conference, the Big East, with three undefeated team in Rutgers, Louisville, and Cincinnati, is now ranked ahead of the ACC and the Big Ten.

With three teams in the top 25, the problem with the conference is not at the top but rather in the middle and bottom. With the addition of lowly teams like Memphis, Central Florida, San Diego State, SMU, and Houston in 2013, the conference is going to have a very difficult time gaining respect from the national media and the BCS committee. What Big East programs should hope for now is for those team listed above to start having some sort of success to give the conference some depth.

I know many Louisville fans, including myself, are clamoring for a move to the Big 12, but, if the conference continues to have the success it’s having this season, perhaps the Big East could be a suitable home after all.
