College Football Preseason Conference Rankings - Big East

SportsGorilla 2007 Preseason Conference Rankings

Big East predictions

1. West Virginia
2. Louisville
3. Pittsburgh
4. Rutgers
5. Syracuse
6. South Florida
7. Connecticut
8. Cincinnati

A few years ago the Big East was awful. Pittsburgh made it to be BCS Fiesta Bowl only to be destroyed by a non-BCS conference Utah. Times have changed. Louisville and West Virginia will once again battle for the BCS bid. Rutgers should be good again. Pittsburgh has supposed to be good the past couple of season and has disappointed. Now that Wanstedt's job is on the line I think they will come through this year. South Florida is picked as a sleeper by many experts. And Syracuse will show much improvement this year.

The Big East also has 4 legit Heisman hopefuls: Louisville's Brian Brohm, West Virginia's Pat White and Steve Slaton, and Rutgers RB Ray Rice. It should be a good year for the Big East with possibly 4 teams ranked in the top 25 at the end of the season and possibly a national title.
