1. Cincinnati (4-0, 1-0 in conference): Survived a trap game against Fresno, and continues to move up the polls. Next Step...Strange road game at Miami of Ohio.
2. South Florida (4-0, 0-0): So far so good for new QB B.J. Daniels. It was quite a performance against his childhood team, FSU. Next Step...Trap game at Syracuse.
3. Pittsburgh (3-1, 0-0): Ugly second half, in a bad loss to NC State. Next Step...Trying to find a defense before Friday night's game at Louisville.
4. West Virginia (2-1, 0-0): Amazingly the Mountaineers didn't turn the ball over this past weekend. Though it did help that it was a bye week. Next Step...Revenge game against Colorado Thursday night.
5. UConn (3-1, 0-0): Got the job done against a poor Rhode Island team. Next Step...Bye Week
6. Rutgers (3-1, 0-1): Blew out Maryland, after breaking out the offense in the second half. The Knights seem to be heating up. Next Step...Bye Week
7. Syracuse (2-2, 0-0): Less than impressive in a win over Maine. Special Teams a bit of a concern. Next Step...Big home game against South Florida.
8. Louisville (1-3, 0-0): Respectable loss at Utah, but still no end of the doldrums in sight. Next Step...Hosting Pitt Friday night.
