We are five weeks in the 2012 college football season, and the Big East is looking wide open at the top. While just two conference games have been played thus far, that will change this weekend as nearly every team is set to battle a conference foe.

As for the standings now, Rutgers and Cincinnati are undefeated and are the two teams with conference wins. Louisville is also undefeated (5-0) and ranked 19th in the nation, although they're yet to play a Big East team. Connecticut sits in fourth place with a 3-2 record.

Temple is 1-2 and Syracuse is 1-3, and both schools have suffered a couple of tough losses this season. Pittsburgh and South Florida are 2-3 this year, and they both lost their conference opener. None of these teams are out of the running for the conference title, but they have some serious work to do in the coming weeks.

Here is a complete look at the standings.
