Sneak peek at the week ahead

Syracuse and Temple can sit back and watch this final week of the season

Louisville at Rutgers (ESPN/WatchESPN, 7:30 p.m. ET Thursday): Both teams lost this past weekend, taking a bit of the luster off this matchup. Nonetheless, the conference's BCS bowl berth will be decided when these two square off in Piscataway, N.J.)

Cincinnati at Connecticut (ABC, 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday): If Louisville wins two days earlier, Cincinnati is playing for a share of its fourth conference title in the past five years — and second in a row under Butch Jones. The Huskies, meanwhile, are seeking a third straight win, which would extend their year into bowl season.

Pittsburgh at South Florida (ESPN2/WatchESPN, 7 p.m. ET Saturday): The Panthers are hoping to continue their streak of lose two, win two as they play for bowl eligibility. USF is hoping to make the most of a disappointing 3-8 campaign.
