The UConn Huskies have taken an early 7-0 lead over the Rutgers Scarlet Knights thanks to a fumble recovery during the first drive of the game.
Rutgers' Jawan Jamison took all three of the first plays for Knights, running for 8 yards on the first play and no gain on the second. On the third, he fumbled the ball and it was in turn recovered by UConn at the Rutgers 28 yard line.
The Huskies turned to their RB, Lyle McCombs, to carry them quickly into the end zone. After a 14-yard run on first down, he took the next play ten yards into the end zone for the score. UConn converted the extra point to make it 7-0 with 13:31 left in the first quarter.
The Huskies are playing for bowl eligibility, needing to win both of their remaining games. Rutger is still in the hunt for the Big East title but must win out and get some help.
