SCORING RECAP: UConn 40, Rutgers 22

It's amazing what field position and turnovers can do to help a football team's cause. Connecticut forced six Rutgers turnovers Saturday. Two of those came in Rutgers territory on the first two possessions and both led to UConn touchdowns.

The end result? UConn 40, Rutgers 22. That's the most points the Huskies (5-6, 3-3) have put on the board this season and the second-most they've scored in the series with Rutgers. The loss kept the Scarlet Knights from claiming at least a share of the Big East championship.

With a win at Cincinnati next week, UConn would be bowl-eligible for the fifth consecutive season.
