RUTGERS: New head coach Kyle Flood still needs to choose a starting quarterback, but Chas Dodd (10 TD, 7 INT) probably has a slight edge over Gary Nova (11 TD, 9 INT). The Scarlet Knights are getting back their leading rusher in Jawan Jamison (897 rush yds, 9 TD), and although they said goodbye to star WR Mohamed Sanu and his 1,206 yards, Brandon Coleman (552 rec yds, 6 TD) is capable of filling the No. 1 wideout role. The offensive line could struggle this year as they are dealing with injuries already, forcing players to switch positions. The defense held nine teams to 20 points or less last year, ranking eighth in the nation in scoring (18.3 PPG) and ninth in pass defense (172 YPG). With eight starters returning, this unit should be fearsome again.
CINCINNATI: The Bearcats QB position is a question mark, but it seems as though either Munchie Legaux (5 TD, 4 INT) will win the job outright, or Cincinnati will employ a two-QB system with senior Brendan Kay (8 career pass attempts). Legaux will need to improve his 47% completion rate if he's going to be successful. Junior WR Anthony McClung returns after a team-high 683 receiving yards and 6 TD in 2011. The task of replacing Isaiah Pead falls to senior RB George Winn, who had just 40 carries last year but scored on a 69-yard TD run in the Liberty Bowl. The Bearcats defensive line helped lead the nation in Tackles For Loss (8.6 per game) and finish second in sacks (3.5 per game). The linebackers are solid too, but the secondary could cause Butch Jones fits, as for years now, the team has struggled against the pass, allowing 261 passing YPG in 2011.

*Rutgers-Cincinnati Preview* ============================


No. 22 Rutgers (8-1) at Cincinnati (7-2), 12:00 p.m. EDT

First-year coach Kyle Flood has Rutgers in position for its first Big East championship. Just don't tell him that.

Especially this week, as the 22nd-ranked Scarlet Knights travel to play Saturday against a Cincinnati team still in the hunt for another conference title itself.

Rutgers (8-1, 4-0) is the only remaining unbeaten in league play after Louisville was upset by Syracuse last weekend. Flood's team responded to its first loss of the season - a 35-23 home defeat to Kent State on Oct. 27 - with a 28-7 win against Army last Saturday.

That game was tied, 7-7, entering the fourth quarter before Rutgers scored three touchdowns in the final nine minutes, including a late 73-yard fumble return by Duron Harmon.

The Scarlet Knights return to conference action seeking their first 5-0 Big East start since the league began playing football in 1991. If Rutgers wins all three remaining games - it also plays at Pittsburgh and at home against Louisville to close the regular season - the team would make its first BCS bowl appearance.

"I don't see it as the driver's seat," said Flood, who served as assistant head coach from 2008-11 before taking over when Greg Schiano left for the NFL.

"I did not know that was the outcome of (Louisville's loss), but I am never surprised in this league by any outcome. Top to bottom it is an extremely competitive league. For us to be thinking about any three games would be a big mistake."

Rutgers was outgained by Army, 337-252, but the Scarlet Knights' run defense held its own, limiting the country's No. 1 rushing attack 84 yards below its season average. The unit ranks among the top 20 nationally and is second in the Big East, allowing 110.0 rushing yards per game, and Army's rushing touchdown in the first quarter was only the fifth allowed all season by Rutgers.

The Scarlet Knights - fifth in the country yielding 13.4 points per game - will be matched up against the Big East's top rush offense and a new quarterback for Cincinnati.

The Bearcats' 226.8 rushing yards and 34.2 points per game both lead the conference, which they've won at least a share of three of the last four seasons. George Winn, the Big East's leading rusher at 108.9 yards a game, ran for 83 yards and two TDs on 20 carries in their 34-10 win at Temple last Saturday, but senior quarterback Brendon Kay stole the spotlight.

In his first collegiate start, Kay was 13 of 21 for 244 yards and two scores, also running for 71 yards on seven carries. Cincinnati decided to make a change after Munchie Legaux threw six interceptions in the Bearcats' previous three games.

"Brendon Kay came in and did exactly what we wanted him to do and that was manage the football game," coach Butch Jones said. "I thought his decision-making was very good."

Cincinnati (7-2, 3-1) can capture at least a share of the Big East title by winning its final three games, and it would be assured of a BCS berth if it does that and Louisville loses once more.

"Everyone wants a crown ... but every game counts and that's why you just come to work every day," Jones said.

Rutgers is the conference's only team undefeated on the road at 4-0, though the Scarlet Knights are 1-6-1 all-time at Cincinnati. The lone victory came in 1987.

The all-time series is tied, 8-8-1, with the Bearcats winning five straight before a 20-3 road loss last November. Rutgers running back Jawan Jamison ran for 200 yards and two touchdowns on 34 carries in the victory.

Jamison threw a touchdown pass and rushed for 90 yards against Army. He's second in the Big East to Winn with 105.9 yards per game on the ground.
