Big East Power Rankings: Week 7

New, 1 comment

Finally we have the first edition of the SB rankings that actually fall during Big East conference play. Although only one game was played, it was a big one: UConn was outclassed by what looked to be a superior Pitt team. The win cemented the Panthers atop the rankings this week and sent the Huskies down a few spots. 

Villanova jumped a spot from last time but until we see what the Cats can do against some real competition, anyone's guess is as good as mine. This week's tilt with Temple is a true test and will hopefully serve as a successful wake up call before conference play. This team has a lot of talent and a lot to prove.
