If I didn't see it, I wouldn't believe it. Rutgers held a 21-10 lead on Connecticut going into the fourth quarter, only to squander the lead and find themselves trailing UCONN 24-21 with 38 seconds to go.
Then after the ensuing kickoff Rutgers freshman quarterback Tom Savage hit Tim Brown, the best friend of slain UCONN cornerbck Jasper Howard, for an 81 yard touchdown to snatch victory from UCONN, 28-24 in front a stunned packed house in Hartford.
Rutgers is now 6-2, 1-2 in the Big East, UCONN 4-4, 1-3 Big East.
I'll be back to tall about this thriller, plus more Big East, college football, and World Series tomorrow in my weekly Rutgers commentary.
What a game!
