Halfway through Friday's Pinstripe Bowl in Yankee Stadium, Rutgers is in the locker room with a 17-6 lead over Iowa State. After the Cyclones built a 6-0 lead, the Scarlet Knights rallied to score 17 unanswered.
Rutgers quarterback Chas Dodd has found receiver Mohamed Sanu five times for 77 yards through the air, accounting for over half the Knights' air attack. Running back Jawan Jamison punched the ball through the end zone twice, and has 61 rushing yards at halftime.
Conversely, Iowa State has struggled to put together an effective offense. After Jared Barnett opened his day with 2-of-7 passing and a couple of near-interceptions, Steele Jantz took over behind center, completely four of seven passes and running the ball for 40 yards. A would-be Jarvis West touchdown was brought back by a holding penalty, and after kicking two field goals in the first quarter, Zach Guyer missed his third attempt and saw his fourth blocked.
