2011 Big East Positive Impact Factor: Week Twelve

Big East games in Week Thirteen have already started. This is the earliest that I could get the Positive Impact Factor (what's this?) standings up this week, so the standings will not include the Louisville-USF game from earlier today or the Backyard Brawl currently in progress.

Without further ado, here's the updated standings:

2011 Big East Positive Impact Factor: Week Twelve
Rank Quarterback Team Touches Total TD Neg Play XNeg Play XPos Play PIF
1. B.J. Daniels South Florida 443 17 33.2 14.3 4.1 56.4
2. Ryan Nassib Syracuse 393 22 38.7 13.3 5.6 53.6
3. Zach Collaros Cincinnati 319 22 33.2 23.2 6.9 50.4
4. Teddy Bridgewater Louisville 298 12 34.9 23.4 4 45.8
5. Chas Dodd Rutgers 223 9 47.1 12.9 4 44
6. Tino Sunseri Pittsburgh 407 13 38.3 21.8 3.2 43
7. Geno Smith West Virginia 456 25 39.5 27.2 5.5 38.7
8. Johnny McEntee Connecticut 328 10 52.7 31.1 3 19.3
9. Gary Nova Rutgers 224 9 52.7 42.6 4 8.8

Not much changed in the standings this past week. In fact, the only movement was that Chas Dodd and Tino Sunseri swapped places. Injuries contributed to this lack of movement. Zach Collaros is out for the rest of the regular season and Daniels was injured in South Florida's game against Miami. Gary Nova was benched. Three QBs had a bye week: Nassib, Sunseri and Smith. Dodd's PIF of 53.8 against Cincinnati was the top Big East QB performance during Week 12. Munchie Legaux, starting in place of the injured Collaros, only put up a PIF of 19.3 in his first start.

Now for the defenses:

2011 Big East Defensive Positive Impact Factor
Rank Team Touches Total TD Neg Play XNeg Play XPos Play PIF
1. Rutgers 418 10 44.3 30.4 2.4 27.7
2. Cincinnati 443 15 39.1 33.5 3.4 30.9
3. West Virginia 387 14 40.6 29.1 3.6 34
4. South Florida 450 16 42.7 23.9 3.6 37
5. Connecticut 431 19 40.1 25.8 4.4 38.4
6. Syracuse 452 21 36.3 21.3 4.6 47.1
7. Louisville 442 17 39.8 15.9 3.8 48.2
8. Pittsburgh 443 15 40.6 10.5 3.4 52.2

The only change in the defensive standings was that idle West Virginia moved ahead of South Florida. Rutgers opened a lead back up over Cincinnati when the two met and the Scarlet Knights shutdown Munchie Legaux and the Bearcat offense. Louisville closed in on Syracuse when the Cardinals held UConn's quarterback's to a PIF of 18.5.
