Rutgers senior defensive tackle Pete Tverrdov (97) and the rest
of the Rutgers football team's defense, held Cincinnati without a
conversion Saturday on 11 third-down attempts.

Front seven holds own in loss

CINCINNATI — It would seem that a defense that surrendered just three second half points and held the opposing offense behind the first down marker on third down every single time is on track to play winning football.



In a week where just five Big East teams took the field, Syracuse (1-5, 0-2) and West Virginia (4-2, 2-0) stole the headlines. The Orange traveled to Morgantown Saturday and gave the Mountaineers a run for their money.


Column: Answering unsolved questions

What a busy first weekend of September. The Yankees are unofficially officially out of the playoff race. Jake Locker found out that no means no. Shawne Merriman realized that playing on one leg is only a good thing if it is during hopscotch. Vinny Chase is back in L.A., Tom Brady will have more time to spend with Gisele and Max Scheiner's fantasy football season is already ruined.


No. 20 Rutgers upset No. 12 Stanford over weekend

All season long, the Rutgers field hockey team looked like it was on the verge of earning a marquee win for the program. And this past weekend, it finally got one. After losing to No. 4 Michigan (10-2, 5-0) on Friday, the No. 20 Scarlet Knights (8-5, 2-2) bounced back to triumph over No. 12 Stanford (7-4, 4-0) in overtime on Saturday. It was the highest ranked opponent that they have ever beaten in program history and along with wins over then-No. 23 Old Dominion and then-No. 19 Iowa, they now have three wins over ranked opponents this season after previously having just three all time.


Rutgers splits weekend with win over Michigan State, loss to Ohio State

As the regular season comes to a close, the Rutgers field hockey team looks like one that can wreak havoc in the postseason. But at the same time, there is still some work to do. The No. 18 Scarlet Knights (8-7, 3-3) split their last two games in their second-to-last regular season weekend, winning at Michigan State (8-8, 2-4) before losing to No. 25 Ohio State (8-7, 1-5) at home on Sunday.


Rutgers comes out of bye week seeking 2nd win in Illinois road matchup

Open on Memorial Stadium in Champaign, Illinois, where the Knights (1-4, 0-2) will do battle with the Fighting Illini (2-3, 0-2) in a contest of cellar squads looking to move up. There are very few points in the schedule where Rutgers has a shot at cutting its losses and finally playing a solid consecutive four quarters. Coming off of a bye week, Saturday at noon remains as good an opportunity as ever.


Rutgers makes way to Nebraska for first Big Ten test of season

It is a well known fact that playing a team coming off of an upset loss, an angry team, is usually not the greatest for the next underdog team to play against. Unfortunately, for the Rutgers football team, it may be facing one of the angriest teams in college football in Nebraska. The Scarlet Knights (1-2) will travel to Lincoln, Nebraska this Saturday to take on the Cornhuskers (1-2) for their first road encounter and first Big Ten game of the year, one that comes on the heels of a dominant 65-0 victory over Morgan State. As for the home side this weekend, the thoughts of two consecutive, one to Oregon and one to Northern Illinois, losses even before Big Ten play has started lingers. Like Rutgers' loss to Eastern Michigan in week two, Nebraska was unable to fend off a Mid-American Conference (MAC) team in Northern Illinois. "A lot like ours to Eastern Michigan," said head coach Chris Ash, on the Huskers' loss last week. "They had opportunities to win the game and didn't make them.

Rutgers could not overcome a 2-1 halftime deficit, ultimately falling 3-1.
