NEW YORK -- The Big East Tournament will have some major competition in the Big Apple over the next two years, and Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard thinks that's "cute."

After playing its postseason tournament in Washington, D.C., this year, the ACC will host its conference tournament at Barclays Center in 2017 and '18. The Atlantic 10, meantime, will move from Barclays to Pittsburgh's Consol Energy Center in 2017 and Washington D.C.'s Verizon Center in 2018.

The Big Ten, meantime, will hold its conference tournament at Madison Square Garden in 2018 -- a week earlier than the Big East's event.

St. John's has yet to win a Big East contest this season and will take a 15-game losing streak into Saturday night's tilt with No. 1 Villanova at Wells Fargo Center.

Despite the long odds, Chris Mullin's team has an opportunity to pull off what would be a tremendous upset less than a week after the Wildcats (21-3, 11-1 Big East) were installed as the No. 1 team in the nation.

"I always talk about it being an opportunity," Mullin said Thursday on the Big East conference call. "That only comes if you play hard, unselfish, have good energy and are mentally focused on our game plan and know the personnel. Then you give yourself a chance to seize that opportunity. The preparation is so important leading up to the game. You have to put the work in to let yourself play free."

When the new Associated Press poll comes out on Monday, it's entirely possible that Villanova could be the new No. 1 team in the land.

Both No. 1 Oklahoma and No. 2 North Carolina lost to unranked teams on Saturday, thereby ensuring that the revolving door of No. 1-ranked teams will continue to turn.

There have already been five different No. 1 teams this year: North Carolina, Michigan State, Kansas, Kentucky and Oklahoma.

For the first time in the brief history of the new-look Big East Conference, the league placed three teams in the Top 10 of the AP Poll on Monday.

Villanova is No. 6, Xavier is No. 7 and Providence is No. 10.

Villanova saw its 22-game league winning streak snapped on Sunday at the hands of Providence. Before that, the Wildcats hadn't lost a league game since falling at Georgetown in January 2015.

The Big East ranks fourth in RPI by conference behind the Big 12, Pac-12 and ACC, according to RealTimeRPI.com.

In its third year since renovation, the Big East has been the beast of the college basketball world throughout non-conference play.

While last year saw members of the conference make some strong statements, this season, the league is getting respect from the AP voters, with four teams ranked in the top-16 of both the AP Top 25 and the USA Today Coaches Poll.

And while your first guess may be that Jay Wright's Villanova Wildcats are once again leading the pack and are the clear favorite in the league, well, you would be wrong.

It happened. It finally happened. The Mets are back on top of the NL East and going to the playoffs. It's hard to believe and feels very strange to type on a keyboard. And yet, it's been nine years since it last happened. Nine. That's a long time. So much so, that in the seconds before this group of players and coaches began celebrating being the NL Eastern Division Champions, the previous eight seasons flashed before my eyes.

I saw Willie Randolph, Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya being fired. I saw Oliver Perez and Mike Pelfrey. I saw headlines from countless rumors, failed ideas, medical reports and financial news. I saw Endy Chavez's catch. I saw Tony Bernazard, Colin Cowgill, Brad Eamus and a thousand other names I shouldn't remember. I saw two seasons and a beloved stadium collapse in to a rubble.

And then I saw the 31,000 posts I've made since October 19, 2006, when Adam Wainwright's curveball started a downward spiral for the baseball team I love. And yet, some how, right now, watching grown men jump around like kids, watching David Wright and all he's been through spraying champagne, seeing these guys smile and laugh in relief, listening to fans be happy together all at the same time, it all seems worth it. The whole thing, all the drama, all the chaos, all the arguing and anger and frustration during the last nine years, it is all fading away like street signs in a review mirror. The future is now...

David Wright: "It's a long time coming. We deserve this. The fans deserve it. The city of New York deserves it. I'm glad we could deliver for them. ...?I can't be more excited or more proud to wear the orange and blue. I?bleed orange and blue. To be able to celebrate with these fans, this city, this team, is a privilege. ...?When I was laying on my back rehabbing for a few months this summer, this is what you dream of. This is what motivates you. This is what pushes you. This is what drives you, not just for what we do on the baseball field, for how close this team has become and how we play for one another. ... I think I took 2006 for granted. For the last few months, I've tried to enjoy this as much as possible and just soak it in because this is a surreal feeling. And, to be able to try to bottle this up and bottle this emotion, and try to save it as long as I can, that's what it's all about. ...?It's been a long time coming, and it's been too long."

The Friday after Thanksgiving is always a laid-back day with very little excitement. This year, there is no excitement in the land of the Giants. They are officially out of the play off picture at 3-8 and are headed into NFL obscurity in a season where most teams are talking about how they can still grab a playoff spot.

The Giants will be practicing today in preparation for their trip to Jacksonville. They will head down to Florida tomorrow to play perhaps one of the NFL's most meaningless games of the year. FOX is only televising the game in the Jacksonville and New York markets, with former Giant David Diehl providing color commentary alongside a play-by-play man that I'm sure most Giant fans have never heard of, Justin Kutcher.

The NFC East ain't so bad after all. Through five weeks, the division has an overall 12-8 record, thanks to a 6-1 non-conference record vs the AFC South. In addition, the four teams only have played two divisional games thus far, so the bulk of the divisional schedule lies ahead. One of those games will transpire this Sunday night when the Giants travel to Philadelphia.

But, as fate would have it, the Giants are never as bad as they appear under Tom Coughlin, who never stops striving to improve his team's play. They've won the next two games and looked very good doing it.

"We?re trying like heck to be the best we can be," said Coughlin. "We?re trying to improve on a weekly basis. We?re trying to do the things we didn?t do in the beginning. We?ve had some takeaways, we?ve had pretty good control of the ball, with the exception of the one the other day. We?ve done some things that worked together as a team, so I?m hoping that continues."

Week One of the 2014 NFL season concludes tonight with the Giants facing off against the the Lions at Ford Field in Detroit (and a later game of Chargers/Cardinals). The prognosticators are giving the Giants little chance of winning the game. Some are predicting a blowout. No one believes the Giants can win. Except, maybe, the Giants.

In the NFC East yesterday, the Philadelphia Eagles made a second-half comeback and a statement down in Jacksonville. ?They scored 34 unanswered points after going down by 17 in the first half. RB Darren Sproles has added a new dimension to Chip Kelly's offense that makes them virtually unstoppable over a 60-minute period.

Dallas could not overcome multiple turnovers and mistakes at home vs the 49ers, losing 28-17. The positives that Cowboy fans can take away from this game was that the defense did not look as bad as advertised. The negatives are obviously the turnovers by the offense that led to points.

Rutgers, which enters the Big Ten next season, and Seton Hall are already signed to an eight-game series, so it's unlikely they would meet again in this event.

Val Ackerman proudly stood on a podium on the Madison Square Garden floor late Saturday night handing out Big East Tournament championship trophies to Providence coach Ed Cooley and every member of his team.

The Friars' surprise victory in the Big East Tournament culminated a successful week for Ackerman in her first year as Commissioner of the revamped Big East.

The tournament was exciting, culminating in a tense and taut game between a member of the Big East old guard (Providence) and a representative of the new Big East (Creighton). It somehow seemed appropriate that Dave Gavitt's old school won its first Big East Tournament championship since 1994 and will go to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2004.

The basketball schools remained in the new-look Big East, adding Butler, Creighton and Xavier to form a new 10-team league that still gets to play its postseason tournament at Madison Square Garden.

The football schools departed for what was eventually called the American Athletic Conference, adding in some former Conference-USA members to round out their 10-team league that will play its postseason tournament at the FedEx Forum in Memphis.

Philadelphia topped the Cowboys in Dallas Sunday night, 24-22, in a "win and you're in" game. They will host the New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card round Saturday night.

In the final season of the "old" Big East Conference, the league sent eight teams to the NCAA Tournament and two to the Final Four in Atlanta.

Rick Pitino and Louisville ended up cutting down the nets to give the Big East its second NCAA championship in three years, and fifth since 1999.

But as the new-look Big East gets set to tip off on Tuesday with all 10 teams in action, those five NCAA championship-winning programs will be long gone.

The Eagles sit all lone atop the division after Dallas got left out int he cold last night in Chicago. Philly holds a one-game lead over the Boys with three to go. They face each other in Week 17 down in Big D, so all Dallas has to do is stay one game back until then.

The next two weeks will be the season for the Cowboys: home vs Green Bay and away at Washington. No need to go into what those teams have been experiencing, but Dallas should win both.

The Eagles have been red-hot behind QB Nick Foles, who is 6-1 as a starter. He has 20 TD passes to only one INT this season, completing nearly 62% of his passes in the process.

The Cowboys were off yesterday, a much-needed bye to say the least. They play the Giants at MetLife this coming Sunday. A Cowboys win moves them into a first-place tie with Philadelphia. A Giants win drops Dallas into a second place tie with New York.

Victor Cruz was again at the top of his game, catching eight passes for 110 yards. Everyone else was efficient enough in helping the Giants get the win.

The Giants have won three in a row and are suddenly right smack in the middle of the NFC East fray. That's not saying much considering the state of the NFC East these days, but it's all we've got right now so we'll take it.

Sunday's win, paired with the losses by Dallas and Washington and the Eagles' victory, have landed the Giants just 1 1/2 games off the division lead.

The Giants face the Packers next week at MetLife. Green Bay will still be without Aaron Rodgers, but third stringer Scott Tolzien, who tossed for 280 yards in a loss vs Philly yesterday after Seneca Wallace left the game with a groin injury, will be get the start for the Pack.

Even with four teams in the NFC having off this past week, there was still some outcomes that affected my rankings. Seattle was able to turnaround a disastrous start against Tampa Bay and inch out a victory in overtime against the still winless Buccaneers; keeping them at the top spot in the NFC. The Saints however, were not so lucky as they suffered a stunning loss to the New York Jets on the road and showed that Drew Brees is indeed human. More importantly, the Green Bay Packers were without their star QB Aaron Rodgers for a majority of their Monday night loss against the Chicago Bears and will lose Rodgers for several weeks with a broken collarbone; shaking up the rankings even more. Here are my NFC Power Rankings for week 9...

?1. Seattle Seahawks?(8-1):?The Seahawks have been cutting it close when it comes down to these games. Each week they have been on the brink of defeat, and this week was no different. Down 21 points to the winless Buccaneers, all signs pointed to Seattle facing their first defeat at home since 2011. But the Seahawks and QB Russell Wilson were able to muster up a stunning comeback and leave CenturyLink Stadium with an overtime victory, keeping their streak at home alive. This team has shown tremendous resilience when they needed it the most. RB Marshawn Lynch had?his way with the Tampa Bay defense, carrying the ball 21 times for 121 yards. Should?Seattle be worried? I don't think so.?The way the Seahawks have strung together this steak is amazing and?when their backs have been up against the wall, even?against teams like the Rams and Buccaneers, they have found a way to walk away with a victory. This team is STILL the cream of the crop in the NFC.?Ranking last week: 1
