Key remaining games: Cincinnati (Oct. 26); at Rutgers (Nov. 29).

_No. 20 Rutgers (5-0)

So far: Feisty defense and RB Jawan Jamison runs for 100 yards every week.

Key remaining games: at Cincinnati (Nov. 17); Louisville (Nov. 29)

_No. 21 Cincinnati (4-0)

So far: The Bearcats best win is against Virginia Tech, which isn’t what it used to be.

Key remaining games: at Louisville (Oct. 26); Rutgers (Nov. 17).

Forecast: The Big East race figures to be fun, especially if these three can avoid being upset in their other games. But it’s hard to see any of them making it through the season unbeaten.
