|Well done Rutgers!
South Florida, way overrated at #2 to begin with finally stumbled in New Jersey earlier tonight just as Lousiville did last year. At least one thing you can expect from the Big East other than a few teams scaring the rest of the nation by threatening to go undefeated, is that they always choke and end up in a BCS bowl instead.
7 sacks by the Rutgers defense is a feat. The Bulls defense has held its opponents to under 100 yards all season and tonight Ray Rice racked up 181 yards on 39 carries. If you thought Penn State's drop in the polls after the Michigan loss was horrendous, watch South Florida's descend this week. Pollsters have been looking for every excuse in the book to drop this unconventional team from the polls. Pac-10, Big 10 and especially SEC traditionalists have been pulling hair ever since they realized that a team that didn't exist more than a decade ago is now perched on the #2 spot. They should send Greg Schiano a few dozen roses for providing the perfect excuse to drop the upstart Bulls like a bad habit.
Final Score: Rutgers 30 - (#2)South Florida 27
Way to go Knights!
