2012 Big East Football Standings: Louisville finishes No. 1, headed to Sugar Bowl

With the regular season over, here's a look back on a wild year of Big East football.


The college football regular season has wrapped up, and now it's time for bowl games. It was mostly a disappointing year for the Big East, although a few schools will be bowling this month. Let's take one final look at the standings.

Four teams tied at the top with a 5-2 record. Louisville, Cincinnati, Rutgers and Syracuse all had fine years, although it was the Cardinals and Scarlett Knights that played for the conference crowd last week. Louisville came out on top, and now they're headed to the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans to take on the Florida Gators. All four of these teams are bowl eligible, and so are the Pittsburgh Panthers, which made a late-season push to finish with a 6-6 record.

As for the rest of the league, Temple won just two Big East games and finished the season with a 4-7 record. Connecticut when 2-5 against conference foes and completed the year at 5-7. South Florida finished in last place with just one win.
