Big East moves to No. 4 in power rankings

10/15/2012

Big East fans have more reason to celebrate today after the latest ESPN Stats & Information conference power rankings.

The league now sits in fourth place, moving up a spot from a week ago. That means the Big East is currently ahead of the Big Ten and ACC in the current rankings, thanks to its three ranked, unbeaten teams.

Here is what the Stats & Information group had to say about the Big East:

Overall, the Big East has more undefeated teams than the Big 12, Big Ten, and ACC combined. The conference is tied with the SEC for the most undefeated teams in FBS, but the SEC has six more teams in its conference than the Big East.

Because the Big East has just eight teams, strong starts by three of its eight members have helped the conference jump over the Big Ten for fourth-place in the conference rankings.

Here are the complete standings:
