Rutgers had some momentum heading into the third quarter against the Cardinals after scoring its first touchdown of the game with one second left in the half.
The operative word here is "had."
That’s because the Scarlet Knight failed to capitalize on its big play, which tied the game 7-7 to start the second half.
Louisville scored on its opening drive when Chris Philpott launched a 52-yard field goal to put the Cards up 10-7. After Rutgers had the ball back for a scant two minutes, they were forced to punt and set up the hometown team’s next scoring drive.
Chris Philpott’s extra point was stuffed and Rutgers got the ball back; however, the Scarlet Knights failed to produce any points and limped into the fourth quarter down by nine.
