True freshman quarterback, Mike White, struggled most of the game and finished with 141 yards with two fumbles and an interception on 14-of-31 passing for the Bulls. Walt Wells' attack on offense was one-dimensional for most the night, limited to just 10 rushing yards on 20 carries for the game.
Rutgers quarterback, Chad Dodd, played mistake free football, finishing the game with 179 yards and two touchdowns on 19-of-24 passing. It wasn't just Dodd who carried the load. The 6-foot, 210-pound running back, Paul James, was a load at running back. James carried the rock for 113 yards with two touchdowns on 26 carries, while averaging 4.3 yards-per-carry.
The Bulls' offensive put up just 151 yards of total offense and committed 11 penalties for 99 yards, which isn't a good recipe for success.
Rutgers (6-6, 3-5) is now bowl eligible with the win over Willie Taggart's program tonight and is projected to play Notre Dame in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium on Dec. 28.
