Loserville Picked To Finish Last In Big East Football

ESPN’s Brian Bennett reports that Louisville is picked dead last in the Big East, according to the league’s preseason media poll which was released Tuesday.

Here is the complete article including the rankings |

Pittsburgh was the overwhelming choice to win the Big East title.

The Panthers received 22 out of a possible 24 first-place votes in the voting by media representatives from all eight Big East cities. Pitt was picked second on the two ballots in which it was not tabbed No. 1.

That makes Dave Wannstedt’s team the heaviest favorite in the league’s preseason poll since Louisville in 2005. Now it’s up to the Panthers to win their first conference title under Wannstedt.

Cincinnati and West Virginia tied for second in the preseason poll. The Bearcats, who have won the league two straight years, did not receive any first-place votes, while West Virginia had one. The other first-place vote went to Connecticut, which finished fourth in the poll. That’s the highest-ever preseason projection for the Huskies.

Here is the complete poll with the number of points each team received through the voting:

1. Pittsburgh (22 first-place votes) 190
2. Cincinnati 142
2. West Virginia (1) 142
4. Connecticut (1) 131
5. Rutgers 99
6. USF 79
7. Syracuse 41
8. Louisville 40
