Cincinnati Vs. Rutgers Score: Scarlet Knights Looking To Lead Big East

The Cincinnati Bearcats were in the catbird's seat heading into Saturday afternoon's Big East match-up with the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, but that looks like it might be changing when the final whistle blows. Rutgers leads the Bearcats, 17-3, midway through the third quarter between the conference's two top dogs.

Rutgers has been paced by the running game, specifically Jawan Jamison, as the redshirt freshman has carried the ball 21 times for 123 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Chas Dodd has done his part, too, as he hasn't turned the ball over while completing 17 of his 30 passing attempts for 166 yards.

The Bearcats are struggling without usual starting quarterback Zach Collaros. Backup Munchie Legaux has completed just three of his 11 passing attempts while and lost a fumble on one of his six attempts at a scramble. Running back Isaiah Pead hasn't fared much better, either, as he's carried the ball 11 times for just 30 yards.
