It's the time of year when everyone turns their focus to the 2012 college football season. Some freshmen are already reporting to school and working out with their new teams, the preseason magazines are hitting the shelves, and now, the gamblers are making early predictions for next year. Our friends at Beyond The Bets have done everyone a tremendous service by actually setting lines and making predictions on all 798 FBS football games for the 2012. How does Beyond The Bets see the Big East turning out this year?

STANDINGS

Louisville 6-1
Cincinnati 6-1
South Florida 5-2
Rutgers 4-3
Pittsburgh 4-3
Connecticut 1-6
Syracuse 1-6
Temple 1-6

After the jump, you can see Beyond The Bets early lines for every Big East game this season and deduce from them where those projected standings come from. If the favorite were to win every game, Louisville would win the Big East by virtue of winning head to head over Cincinnati, despite, "losing" on the road in the final week at Rutgers. This is another prediction of Louisville winning the Big East, but it's the first I've seen that gives Butch Jones and the Bearcats some credit and calls for them to once again win at least a tie for the conference title.
