Knights Skin Panthers

Every Friday the experts explain why Rutgers can't keep it up. Every Saturday the Knights prove them wrong. Yesterday, the pundits made Pittsburgh a one-touchdown favorite. Tonight the Scarlet Knights came away with a 20-10 victory to remain undefeated at 7-0, 2-0 in Big East Conference play.

Sophomore running back Ray Rice ran for a career high 229 yards, while fellow sophomore quarterback Mike Teel was 10/18 for 75 yards, with one touchdown and no interceptions.

Prior to this game, the Panther offensive line had allowed only five sacks of highly-touted quarterback Tyler Palko. Palko today found himself on his back staring at the gray Pittsburgh sky 5 times.

While Rice averaged 5.9 yards in 39 carries, his backfield partner Brian Leonard carried only 8 times, but gained 50 yards, breaking one for 27.

Next week, back home in New Brunswick, the Knights face a UConn team that was rated 105th against the run before giving up 263 yards on the ground yesterday on their way to a 37-11 drubbing by West Virginia. The Huskies may want to consider kidnapping Rice and Leonard before the game.

[p.s. And, speaking of winning the Big East championship, is it true that #6 Louisville led lowly Syracuse by only 7-6 at the half? Is that possible? Did the Cardinals really win by only two touchdowns? Sheesh. As I recall, Louisville plays Rutgers . . . hmmmm . . . . now where would that be? Ah yes: November 9, in Our House.]
