Week 6 SB Nation Big East power rankings: Panthers stay in middle

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

We're back with another edition of the weekly SB Nation Big East power rankings. Below was my ballot for the week:

1. Louisville

2. Rutgers

3. Cincinnati

4. Pitt

5. UConn

6. Syracuse

7. South Florida

8. Temple

Not much movement with only four teams playing this week. I wanted to move Cincinnati up a bit further, but with only three games under their belt, it was a little hard to do that. I also moved Syracuse up on the bye week after South Florida lost to Florida State this weekend for their third straight loss.

Part of that is on the three straight losses, but the other part is that, as I mentioned in the game preview on Monday, Syracuse has actually faced good competition as their three losses have come to teams with a combined 12-record. They've played all three of those teams tough, so I bumped them up a spot.

Be sure to head over to The UConn Blog and check out the full rankings including individual ballots of the rest of the Big East blogs.
