A look around the Big East
Take a team-by-team look at the Big East.
In their biggest Big East game ever, the Eagles (8-3, 4-2) laid an egg. But don't think for a minute that anybody around the league is feeling sorry for a BC program that's packing its bags and moving to the hated Atlantic Coast Conference.
The Big East was none too happy with BC's decision to depart, which is why nobody shed a tear when Syracuse invaded Alumni Stadium in the regular-season finale and ripped the league's BCS berth right from BC's arms in a 43-17 pummeling. The Eagles had all but made reservations to the Fiesta or Sugar Bowls, but that crippling, 26-point loss catapulted them out of BCS contention and into the Continental Tire Bowl to face North Carolina (Dec. 30).
