Did you know? Week 8

Did you know that ...

  • With a win on Friday night, Cincinnati will tie Virginia Tech (1998-2000) for the second-longest conference winning streak in Big East history with 14? Miami has the longest streak at 27 (1999-2003).

  • The Big East is the only FBS conference in which every team has at least a .500 record in 2010? The only other conference in any level of football that can say that is the four-team, Division III University Athletic Association.

  • Both Cincinnati and South Florida are undefeated in Friday night games?

  • Syracuse has allowed 14 points or fewer in its four wins but has given up 41 and 45 points in its two losses?

  • Louisville's Bilal Powell is the only player in the country who has two rushing touchdowns of 80 or more yards this season? He is one of only three players to rush for more than 200 yards in a game twice this season, along with Heisman Trophy candidates Denard Robinson of Michigan and Oregon State's LaMichael James.

  • Rutgers quarterback Chas Dodd is 16-of-22 (72.7 percent) for 285 yards and three touchdowns in his last two games during the fourth quarter and overtime?

  • West Virginia and Syracuse introduced the Ben Schwartzwalder Trophy in 1993 to honor the former WVU player and Orange coach? The Mountaineers have won the trophy 11 out of 17 times since then.
