2012 Big East Football Standings: Louisville last unbeaten after Rutgers loss

Jamie Rhodes-US PRESSWIRE

The title race in the Big East is tilting towards Louisville, as the Cardinals remained undefeated with an overtime win against Cincinnati.

For the second straight week, an undefeated ranked Big East squad lost to a team from the MAC, leaving Louisville as the conference's last undefeated team.

Louisville survived an overtime test in a matchup that could have eliminated Cincinnati from the Big East title race: although the Bearcats had suffered their first loss of the season to Toledo the week before, they were still undefeated in conference play heading into the matchup with Louisville. The Cardinals rallied from a pair of double-digit deficits to lead by seven late, but coughed up the lead in the final minutes. In overtime, Munchie Legaux tossed a pick on Cincinnati's first possession, allowing Louisville to nail a simple field goal for the win to move to 8-0 on the year.

Previously-unbeaten Rutgers didn't learn the lesson from Cincinnati's MAC woes, trailing from the outset against Kent State. The Golden Flashes coasted to a 35-23 win, dropping Rutgers to 7-1 on the year.

Here's a look at the full conference standings:
