Big East Football: Week Three

Last week I took a brief respite from putting together this catalogue of Big East games.


It's simple: I didn't feel it necessary to dedicate space on the internet to publicizing a slate of games featuring Pittsburgh against Ohio, Connecticut versus Liberty, West Virginia taking on Wofford, Syracuse smacking around Buffalo, South Florida hosting Florida A&M, and Rutgers meeting Villanova.

I'd rather drink bleach and try some scratch and sniff Agent Orange than have to concern myself with that roster of football gruel.

This week, however, things are much more interesting and deserve a mention on the valuable real estate that is this blog.

The marquee matchup involving a Big East member this weekend is Syracuse taking on Virginia in the Carrier Dome. I normally don't like to toot the horn of the home team, but this game has a million storylines that make the game interesting.
  • The roles each university played in the ACC/Big East realignment
  • D'Brickashaw Ferguson and the fact that he almost wore different shades of orange and blue
  • Interesting coaches and styles of play
  • Both clubs are looking to establish themselves in this game to set a tone for the rest of the season
  • And lots, lots more!
