With Pitt off and the Mountaineers playing Friday in Tampa against USF, there were just three games involving Big East teams yesterday -- one a non-conference clash against those worldbeaters Arkansas State.

A short schedule was made up for in a big way by what was, to this point, the most exciting game in the league this season, with Rutgers scroing late to beat UConn.

Anyhow, here's what happened:

Rutgers 28, UConn 24

     > The guy who scored the last second TD for Rutgers was one of Jasper Howard's good friends -- touching stuff

Cincinnati 28, Syracuse 7 

     > The Bearcats move to 8-0

Louisville 21, Arkansas State 13

     > Come on, now! You had this much trouble with a team that is 1-2 in the Sun Belt?!?!?!
