Rutgers-UConn score: Scarlet Knights get 1st TD, lead 13-3

After three quarters in Piscataway, Rutgers leads UConn, 13-3. It was a sluggish first half, and Rutgers struggled to find the end zone despite quality field position. But they would open the half with a touchdown on heir first drive, taking a double digit lead as they look to remain undefeated.

The Scarlet Knights finally broke into the end zone with Gary Nova hitting wide receiver Mark Harrison for a 14-yard score. Harrison took the pass on the right sideline and bolted to the pylon for the early second-half touchdown. The touchdown capped a nine-play, 84-yard drive that lasted almost five minutes. It was a nice mix of pass and run, featuring Nova and running back Jawan Jamison. The Rutgers rusher reeled off a 28-yarder that moved the Scarlet Knights across midfield and into UConn territory. Three plays later, Nova would connect with Harrison for the 13-3 lead.

UConn is looking to get back it in as the fourth quarter opens, with the Huskies driving into Rutgers territory.
