Syracuse 7, Rutgers 3: Runnign Game Dominating But Knights Trail At Halftime

Using a first-quarter, four-yard touchdown reception by running back Antwon Bailey, Syracuse leads Rutgers, 7-3, at halftime.

The Scarlet Knight’s lone score came on a 26-yard field goal by kicker San San Te late in the second quarter.

From the Wildcast formation, Rutgers wide receiver Jeremy Deering has rushed for a game-high 71 yards on 14 carries.

The Scarlet Knight rushing attack setup a couple second-quarter scoring opportunities but Rutgers didn’t capitalize.

San Te missed a 47-yard field goal early in second quarter. Two possessions later, the Knights, starting inside Orange territory because of an interception thrown by Nassib, couldn’t connect on a play-action pass, which freed up wide receiver Mason Robinson near the end zone.

Syracuse running back Delone Carter has a team-high 58 rushing yards on 10 carries. Nassib, 6-for-16 with just 106 passing yards and an interception, has struggled.
