Big East lunchtime links

  • Pittsburgh is trying to stay focused on the task at hand, not its early cushion in the Big East standings.

  • Louisville took a small step back in losing to Pitt. And how about this quote from Cardinals defensive end B.J. Butler about the Panthers: "We had a tip from the coaches that if the (offensive line's) heels were in the dirt it was pass, if they were off the dirt, it was going to be a run.” Think that will be passed around some locker rooms?

  • Converted defensive lineman Andre Civil could play right tackle for Rutgers as the Scarlet Knights look to solve their offensive-line maladies. Greg Schiano has had to play father figure like never before.
