General Athletic Information
The Rutgers University football team lists five players on its roster who have rushed for more than 100 yards in a game. No other school in the country can lay claim to such a distinction. Many coaches would sacrifice limbs for the apparent depth Rutgers has in its backfield. But from Scarlet Knights coach Greg Schiano's viewpoint, the situation has simply generated inconsistency.
Too many backs carrying the ball for Rutgers
Rutgers football coach Greg Schiano hasn't located a go-to placekicker yet, but it appears sophomore Mike Cortese may have the inside track to the starting job.
After senior Ryan Sands missed a 39-yard field goal attempt and sophomore Justin Musiek clanged a PAT off the upright in last Saturday's 36-21 win at Army, Cortese was given the chance to impress.

By this time next week, Rutgers should have the solution to the two nagging issues that have continued to plague the Knights through their 2-1 start: tailback and place-kicker.
Despite Saturday's 36-21 victory at Army, which snapped a 10-game road losing streak, neither position was solidified, with coach Greg Schiano saying he would use his team's bye week in part to finally settle both spots.
Rutgers: Tailback and kicker become priorities for Schiano
Greg Schiano could be talking about an embarrassment of riches.
Just about every college team outside of Lubbock, Texas, needs a run to jolt its offense, and Schiano happens to have five 100-yard rushers on his roster. Which makes the riches obvious.
Problem is, the only embarrassment to talk about is that Schiano's Scarlet Knights still don't have a tailback.

Brian Leonard stood, helplessly, alongside his offensive teammates. Just yards away Army marched down the field for a touchdown, then recovered an onside kick and went in for another score. Suddenly a comfortable 29-7 lead was down to 29-21, and for the first time all game the rain-soaked crowd of 30,035 at Michie Stadium was buzzing with excitement.

Now it's time to look forward to Miami.
The Boston College football team last week vowed it would not look past Connecticut to this Saturday night's showdown against the No. 2 Hurricanes. The Eagles' 24-14 triumph over the Huskies before a sellout crowd of 40,000 at UConn's Rentschler Field bolstered their claim, giving them a 2-1 record entering what annually is one of the biggest challenges of their season.

It's downright scary. Syracuse's pass defense failed again. The Orangemen are two games into another season with the same unresolved issue that took them down a year ago.

Around the nation
It had the feeling of an old-time game, the kind they used to play against each other in the Southwest Conference all the time. Saturday's Arkansas-Texas matchup even featured former coaches Frank Broyles and Darrell Royal shaking hands at midfield before the game. After the game, it was the Arkansas players shaking their hands in an upside-down "hook 'em horns" gesture. That's what you get to do when you come into Austin and beat the Longhorns -- as the Hogs did, 38-28 -- giving Texas its first home loss in 20 games.
Arkansas hogs the spotlight
Another close call dropped Ohio State even further in The Associated Press college football poll.
The defending national champion Buckeyes fell two spots to No. 5 in the poll released Sunday following their second straight close call, a 44-38 triple-overtime win over North Carolina State.

Tyrone Willingham's patience with quarterback Carlyle Holiday appears to be running thin.
The Irish coach hinted for the first time Saturday following Notre Dame's 38-0 loss to No. 3 Michigan (3-0) that he might consider a change at quarterback.
