Final 2012 Big East Power Rankings

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

With the college football season over, I wanted to put together one final Big East power rankings. It's the last time Pitt will appear in them, so there's that.

So with all of that said, here we go:

1. Louisville

2. Cincinnati

3. Syracuse

4. Rutgers

5. UConn

6. Pitt

7. Temple

8. South Florida

I don't think there's much argument on Louisville, Cincinnati, Temple, and South Florida. It's really the middle of the conference where you could do some flip-flopping. Syracuse lost to Rutgers and had one fewer win, but they finished the season with four straight victories, including some over Louisville, at Missouri, and West Virginia. Rutgers, meanwhile, dropped three straight.

You could also make a case for Pitt over UConn, I suppose, since the Panthers were bowl-eligible while the Huskies weren't. But Pitt had only one more win than the Huskies and lost the head to head matchup. Each also finished 2-1 to end the season, but UConn had the more impressive win defeating Louisville.

All in all, a pretty disappointing year for Pitt when you take everything into consideration.
