Thanks to ESPN Stats & Information, and sports information directors, for sharing these nuggets:
Cincinnati has won five of the past six meetings between the teams, but Rutgers won 20-3 last season. In that game, Jawan Jamison rushed for a career-best 200 yards. He is questionable to play this week after suffering an ankle injury against Army last week.
The Scarlet Knights lead the Big East in scoring defense and turnover margin. Last week, Rutgers blocked two Army field-goal attempts. It leads the nation with eight blocked kicks this season.
Cincinnati leads the Big East in scoring offense and rushing offense. The Bearcats have 17 rushing scores in their past six games. Rutgers has allowed five rushing touchdowns this season.
The Bearcats have won six consecutive home games -- and all five this season by at least 11 points. Rutgers is winless in its past five trips to Cincinnati (0-4-1), last winning in 1987. The Scarlet Knights are just 1-6-1 all-time in Cincinnati.
Army, Temple's Saturday opponent, leads the nation in rushing offense (366.1 yards per game) and is tied for fifth in sacks allowed (0.7). Temple leads the all-time series 5-4, winning last year's meeting 42-14.
Syracuse travels to Missouri on Saturday night. The Orange have not won a true road game against an SEC team since a 49-14 victory at Vanderbilt in 1990, and they are 10-11-1 all-time against the conference. They are 2-0 against the Tigers. Both teams are going for bowl eligibility this weekend.
Miami holds a 3-1 all-time lead over South Florida, with the Bulls' lone win coming in 2010. That overtime win came courtesy of former walk-on Bobby Eveld, who has had to fill in in each of the past two USF-Miami games. With B.J. Daniels out for the year, Eveld and Matt Floyd are battling over the starting QB spot. Eveld was supposed to redshirt this season before the injury.
