  • With starting running back Jawan Jamison hampered with an ankle injury, Savon Huggins rushed for a career-high 179 yards on 41 carries in the Scarlet Knights' 10-3 win at Cincinnati. He had rushed for just 165 yards on 52 attempts this season heading into Saturday.The 41 attempts ties a school-record, held by none other than Jawan Jamison, who set the record earlier this season at South Florida.

  • Cincinnati was held scoreless in the first half by Rutgers. It is the first time that the Bearcats have been held scoreless in a half since Nov. 19, 2011 ... also against Rutgers.

  • Gary Nova's 71-yard touchdown pass to Mark Harrison was Rutgers' longest play from scrimmage this year.
