Big East football standings 2012: Louisville will represent league in BCS

US PRESSWIRE

There was a four-way tie for first in the Big East, but it will be Louisville representing the league in the BCS. The Cardinals are headed to the Sugar Bowl.

The Big East ended in a four-way tie for first place between Louisville, Rutgers, Cincinnati and Syracuse -- all four schools went 5-2 in league play. The right to be the Big East's BCS representative came down to the Louisville-Rutgers game last Thursday, which the Cardinals won.

That victory earned Louisville a trip to the Sugar Bowl, where it will be up against the Florida Gators. Rutgers will meet Virginia Tech in the Russell Athletic Bowl, Cincinnati is up against Duke in the Belk Bowl, Syracuse faces West Virginia in the Pinstripe Bowl and Pittsburgh is off to the BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham. It's the third year in a row that the Panthers have been sent to Birmingham.

UConn, Temple and South Florida failed to qualify for a bowl this season. The Bulls fired head coach Skip Holtz on Sunday.
