University of Pittsburgh junior quarterback Tino Sunseri has thrown two interceptions and Rutgers University has kicked two field goals to take a 6-3 halftime advantage in a Big East Conference football game at High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway, NJ. Senior kicker San San Te connected a career-long 50-yard field goal in the first quarter, and then nailed a 44-yarder in the second quarter for the Scarlet Knights (3-2, 1-0 Big East) who are trying to snap a two-game losing streak to the Panthers (3-2, 1-0).
Freshman quarterback Gary Nova, who got the start over sophomore Chas Dodd, has thrown for 57 yards, but hasn't made any big mistakes, while freshman running back Savon Huggins has carried the ball a team-high six times for 17-rushing yards. Meanwhile, the Rutgers defense has already totaled four sacks and has allowed just 110 total yards.
Pitt got on the scoreboard first with a 29-yard field goal by junior kicker Kevin Harper, who capped the game's opening drive, which lasted 14 plays and went for 74 yards.
The Scarlet Knights have 102 total yards, but just one first down. Rutgers will begin the second half with the football.
