This is the week you’ve been waiting for if you’re a fan of the Big East. This is the week when conference play begins and with that, everything is set to change.
Games start on Wednesday and will end this week when the conference holds its annual marathon of games on Saturday. The conference usually held it’s marathon on New Year’s Eve, but with the CFPs semifinals being held on the same day, the Big East decided to shift the marathon to January 2 this year.
You’ll notice the rankings have not changed much from last week, but that is likely not to be the case come next week. Some big-time conference games are on tap as we flip the calendar to the year 2016.
This is when we separate the wheat from the chaff, as most Big East teams have looked great to start the season. So with that said, let’s look at the last non-conference Big East power rankings.
