Rutgers defeats Syracuse
The turning point of the game occurred with the first drive of the third quarter. The game was tied at seven when Syracuse lined up to kick a 32-yard field goal. Jamal Merrell came through the line to block the kick and Duron Harmon scooped it up and ran 75 yards for the touchdown putting Rutgers up 14-7.
The player of the game was linebacker Khaseem Greene. The senior had a monster game with 14 tackles, three forced fumbles and an interception. The Scarlet Knight defense forced four turnovers during the game.
Rutgers improves to 6-0 on the year and 3-0 in the Big East. With the win, the team is now bowl eligible. They will be on the road next week in Philadelphia to take on Temple.
