Today was an interesting day for the Big East as the top two contenders, Rutgers and Louisville, both lost their Big East contest today. Now the winner of the Big East is still to be determined next when Rutgers and Louisville finally meet, where Rutgers can secure the title and its spot in the Orange Bowl, but what makes it so interesting is that if Rutgers is not able to rebound from its lost next week and Louisville is able to come out on top, and if Cincinnati also is able to win its match-up against Connecticut, then the Big East title will be split four ways.
If things turn out this way then the team who would get the nod for the Orange Bowl would be the highest ranked team, which is in all likelihood to be Louisville. Rutgers and Syracuse would both be able to boast having a share of the conference title as they head to their new conferences next year, the Big 10 and ACC, respectively.
In other related college football news, if Notre Dame is able to hold on tonight vs USC it looks like they will have earned a spot in the Championship game vs Alabama. Personally, I was routing for Oregon and K-State to make it to the big stage for the final dance, especially after the Tide blew it a couple weeks ago. Seeing both Oregon and K-State lose on the same weekend after finally breaking into the top 2 BCS ranking slots was about the most surprising turn of events this season, among other things.
