Rutgers Vs. Cincinnati: Scarlet Knights Defeat Bearcats, 20-3

In their biggest game of the season the SRutgers carlet Knights dominated the Big East-leading Cincinnati Bearcats en route to a convincing 20-3 victory Saturday afternoon at High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway, N.J. With the win Rutgers is now one win away from clinching a share of the Big East title, at the very least. The win moves Rutgers to 8-3 on the season and 4-2 in the Big East, half a game up on the West Virginia Mountaineers in both columns.

Rutgers out-gained the Bearcats 385 yards to 225, had the ball for 38+ minutes, more than doubled Cincy's first down output and did not commit a turnover, while forcing two. Outside of a failed conversion on a first-and-goal situation and nine penalties for 70 yards, the Scarlet Knights pitched a near-perfect game on Senior Day. They entered the day as three-point underdogs.

The star of the day was running back Jawan Jamison, who rushed for 200 yards and two touchdowns on 34 carries. He wore the Bearcat defense down with countless broken tackles and tough runs.

Rutgers plays at UConn next week to finish their season. A victory clinches a share of the Big East title.
