SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Excuse Big East commissioner Mike Aresco if he's feeling a bit giddy this week. When the dust settled after weekend play, he still had three undefeated teams ranked in the AP Top 25.
While nine ranked teams lost, No. 18 Louisville, No. 20 Rutgers and No. 21 Cincinnati boosted their combined record to 14-0 and remained among the 14 undefeated teams in major college football.
The best news for Aresco is that all three are staying put as he continues to rebuild the much-maligned conference.
``Louisville, Cincinnati and Rutgers are some of our core programs, and they have strong football,'' Aresco said. ``What it shows also is that, going forward, we will have even stronger football. It's only going to get better. This is early evidence of it.''
