2011 College Football Scores
October 2, 2011 by staff
Rutgers: Scarlet Knights won a game ugly in the Carrier Dome 19-16 in double overtime. Rutgers and Syracuse combined for nine turnovers in the game and 21 penalties. Rutgers alternating quarterbacks during the game, ranging from Chas Dodd and Gary Nova, a former Pitt commit. Neither stood out in the game so expect something similar next week. Rutgers fans can talk all you want about Savon Huggins, but the Knights managed only five yards rushing against the orange. No joke. Five meters.
Next week: against Pitt at 3:30 on ESPNU
Utah: The Utes lost their Pac-12 opener 31-14 at home in Washington. Utah was killed by turnovers, as there were a total of five instead of only one of the Huskies. As Rutgers, Utah did little on the ground, amassing only 17 yards rushing. QB Jordan Wynn From the left shoulder was injured in the third quarter and was replaced by Jon Hays young.
Next week: vs. Arizona State at 3:30
Connecticut: UConn proceeded to embarrass the Big East, losing 38-31 to Western Michigan at home. The Huskies did well on offense, gaining 450 yards of total offense. However, WMU could not stop Alex Carder QB, who threw for 479 yards and a TD in five years. A key reason was the loss of CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson due to a sprained MCL he suffered last week.
