Below was my ballot for this week's SB Nation Big East football power rankings:
8. South Florida
I dropped Pitt one spot after their loss to Louisville. South Florida was off and UConn lost to Temple at home - otherwise they could have slipped even farther. Speaking of the Owls, they're also a bit of a surprise sitting at No. 4. They are 2-0 in the conference with wins over UConn and South Florida. And at 3-2 on the season, they also will have a chance at a bowl game.
How good are they? I'm not sure just yet, but they're faring a bit better than most probably expected.
Be sure to head over to The UConn Blog for full results of the rankings and check out the individual ballots.
