Rutgers Vs. Cincinnati: Scarlet Knights Up 17-3 After Three

After three quarters of play the Scarlet Knights have dominated the Bearcats in every way imaginable in the two teams' battle for a stop atop the Big East.

Rutgers has doubled up Cincinnati's time of possession, – 30 minutes to 15 – have accumulated 18 more first downs and out-gained them 329 to 84. Unfortunately penalties – seven for 55 – and the inability to score a touchdown from the one yard line to cap a 10 minute, 23 play drive account for Rutgers only being up two touchdowns despite utter dominance for 45 minutes.

Quarterback, Chas Dodd has completed 17 of 30 passes for 166 yards, but the star of the game has been freshman tailback, Jawan Jamison, who has carried the ball 24 times for 170 and two touchdowns. His ability to break tackles and keep his legs churning after contact has not only allowed Rutgers to control the clock, but has completely worn down the defense of the Bearcats.

The fourth quarter of the game can be found on ESPN U.
