No. 22 Rutgers Wins, Stays Unbeaten In Big East

Wesley Hitt/Getty Images(CINCINNATI) -- Rutgers took care of business at in a hostile enviornment, and they still control the Big East.

The Scarlet Knights got another stingy defensive effort and held off Cincinnati 10-3 on Saturday.

No. 22 Rutgers (9-1) still does not have a loss in Big East play but downplayed that after the game. "I'm not thinking about being in control of the Big East," coach Kyle Flood said. "This was a one-time event."

Quarterback Gary Nova got Rutgers on the board in the first quarter with a 71-yard touchdown pass to Mark Harrison for a 7-0 lead and the defense did the rest. Nova finished with 186 yards and two interceptions to go along with the touchdown.

For Cincinnati (7-3), they could only muster 90 rushing yards and turned the ball over twice as they saw their two-game winning streak snapped. The Bearcats especially struggled to convert third downs, completing only three of 11.
