Rutgers 24
Connecticut 13

"We didn't play our best football of the season, that's for certain," Rutgers coach Greg Schiano said. "But we made plays to win the football game, and that's what good teams do."

You think?

Let's see: Converted only 3 of 13 third downs; Only 237 total yards; Rice carries 22 times for a total of 79 yards, including one for 28 -- you do the math for the other 21.

Ito kicks a 51-yard field goal;
Defense returns a fumble and a blocked punt for touchdowns, but allows two UConn touchdowns;
And, oh yes, the offense scored one touchdown.

It was a packed house as the Scarlet Knights returned from a three-game road trip, to play at home in New Brunswick as a ranked team for the first time in 30 years. Every seat was filled with enthusiastic fans, and the sidelines were thick with Jersey fat-cats, big shot alums, and wide-eyed prospects. After UConn was penalized for several false-starts, one of the broadcasters observed: "It's been a long time since an opposing team had trouble hearing its signals at Rutgers Stadium."

And so it has.
