Pinstripe Bowl 2011, Rutgers Vs. Iowa State Finale Score: Scarlet Fever Grips NYC, Knights Win 27-13

Jawan Jamison rushed for two touchdowns in the first half and Brandon Coleman scored on an 86-yard catch in the fourth quarter, lifting the Rutgers Scarlet Knights to a 27-13 win over the Iowa St. Cyclones in the Pinstripe Bowl on Friday.

Playing at Yankee Stadium for the second time this season, Rutgers (9-4) won its fifth straight bowl game while frustrating an Iowa State offense that had trouble getting out of its own way.

Coleman's 86-yard catch down the left sideline on a pass from Chas Dodd into tight coverage was a dagger, giving the Scarlet Knights their 14-point lead. But the defense also came up big, stopping the final two Iowa State (6-7) drives.

Corner Logan Ryan jumped in front of Steele Jantz's pass near the sideline on the Cyclones' final possession for an interception that all but sealed the win.
