Rutgers vs. Kent State score: Scarlet Knights down at halftime, 21-10

Rutgers got off to a pretty rough start in Saturday's game against the Mid-American Conference-leading Kent State. The Scarlet Knights trail at halftime, 21-10.

Rutgers cracked the scoreboard first with a 42-yard field goal from Nick Borgese. But that'd be the last of the points that didn't belong to Kent State until Gary Nova's 19-yard touchdown pass to Tim Wright just before the end of the half.

Zack Hitchens scored on a short pass from Spencer Keith in the first quarter. Kent State added to its lead with a pair of touchdowns in the second quarter as well. Nova's pass was intercepted by Mark Fackler and returned 25 yards for another touchdown.

Dri Archer ran in Kent State's other score, this one from 7 yards out. A loss would be a tremendous upset for the Big East Rutgers, which has gone unscathed up to this point with a 7-0 overall record.

Kent State is 4-0 in the MAC and its only loss this season came against Kentucky.
