'The Big East championship game'

By Brian Bennett

PITTSBURGH -- If there was any doubt how big this game is, referee Gerald McGinn let everybody know during the coin toss.

Before the flip, McGinn greeted captains from both teams at midfield and said, "Gentlemen, welcome to the Big East championship game."

So I guess we can officially call it that now, huh?
