The Rutgers University football program earned a big victory Saturday, 20-3, over the University of Cincinnati. The win was big in the league standings, but still didn't help the Scarlet Knights crack the top 25.
The Rutgers University football program, which earned a decisive 20-3 victory against the University of Cincinnati Saturday in a Big East Conference contest at High Point Solutions Stadium, didn't break into the latest college football rankings Sunday, but did earn more votes than last week.
The Scarlet Knights (8-3, 4-2 Big East), who didn't earn a vote in last week's AP Poll, earned six this week and are ranked No. 30 in the country.
Meanwhile, there are no Big East schools that are ranked in the top 25. West Virginia University earned 37 votes to finish 26th, while Cincinnati got single vote and are No. 33.
