It's the final week of the college football's regular season, and the UConn Huskies will have a shot to become bowl eligible on Saturday when they host the Cincinnati Bearcats. Paul Pasqualoni's team went to Louisville last week and handed the Cardinals their second straight loss, a shocking overtime upset that kept the Huskies' bowl hopes alive. Now they have a shot to finish the season at an even 6-6 and preserve their postseason hopes.

While the Bearcats have a chance at finishing in a four-way tie for first in the conference, the BCS berth for the Big East will be wrapped up on Thursday night in the game between Louisville and Rutgers. The Cardinals still have a shot to go to the BCS if they can pull off the road upset of the Scarlet Knights, who were blown out at Pitt last week. Here's the full Big East slate for Week 14 of the season:

Thursday, Nov. 29:

Louisville Cardinals at Rutgers Scarlet Knights -- 7:30 p.m. ET (ESPN)

Saturday, Dec. 1:

Cincinnati Bearcats at Connecticut Huskies -- 3:30 p.m. ET (ABC)

Pittsburgh Panthers at South Florida Bulls -- 7 p.m. ET (ESPN2)
