Big East Football: Week Five

I've seen a lot of weekends where the Big East didn't have favorable matchups, but this weekend just might take the cake.

With conference clubs hooking up with three of the nation's top 15 clubs, things are bound to get terrifically ugly. Had Louisville and Connecticut not put patsies on the schedule this weekend, there is a very good possibility that the Big East would have a winless out of conference record this weekend.

With regard to conference games, Pitt is hooking up with Rutgers. At the beginning of this season, this game would have spurred mild interest. With Pittsburgh officially sucking balls, this game has major implications on who might be in position to steal a low bowl bid.


Anyways, onto the fun.

Reasonable Out Of Conference BE Record (Week 1): 2-3
Optimistic Out Of Conference BE Record (Week 1): 3-2
Pessimistic Out of Conference BE Record (Week 1): 1-4

The marquee matchup this week is West Virginia and Virginia Tech hooking up in something I like to call the Skoal Bowl.

There's nothing quite like a tilt that pits two fan bases against each other that are convinced that the other side is devoid of basic human intelligence and hygeine responsibilities. It's just terrific.

Plus, if West Virginia wins, Morgantown will burn.
