Sneak peek at Big East week ahead

UConn, like USF, gets a week off after snapping a long losing streak. Louisville and Pitt get the week off, too.

Temple at Army (CBS Sports Network, noon ET Saturday): The Owls are looking to stop the bleeding from a four-game losing streak, and they are facing an Army team that gave Rutgers all it could handle before falling short late in the fourth quarter. The biggest storyline surrounding Temple may be who starts under center.

No. 22 Rutgers at Cincinnati (Big East Network/ESPN3, noon ET Saturday): This is one of two remaining games with serious Big East title implications for both teams. Rutgers controls its own destiny, but Cincinnati -- which looked great under QB Brendon Kay -- can really make the top a mess if it knocks off the Scarlet Knights, who still have to face Louisville.

South Florida at Miami (3 p.m. ET Saturday): Here's guessing this won't be a 6-3 repeat from last season. USF won't have B.J. Daniels under center for the first time this season, and the Hurricanes will be looking to bounce back from a 41-40 loss at Virginia. Miami has lost four of its last five following a 4-1 start.

Syracuse at Missouri (ESPNU/WatchESPN, 7 p.m. ET Saturday): A rare late-season Big East/SEC game, one that will decide which of these teams clinches bowl-eligibility in Week 12. Syracuse's offense is rolling as the Orange have won three of their last four. Mizzou is hoping to take care of business this week before traveling to No. 8 and other SEC newcomer Texas A&M the following week.
