Quarter ends with first sack

Posted by ESPN.com's Brian Bennett

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers can't win without putting pressure on Tony Pike.

The Scarlet Knights' first sack of Pike finally came on the final play of the first quarter, courtesy of George Johnson. Before that, Pike had had virtually all day, though the Scarlet Knights are trying more twists and stunts up front. Pike scrambled away from one pressure for a 15-yard gain on third-and-one. But Johnson got him on the next.

Rutgers simply has to get some negative plays and get the Bearcats off schedule, because otherwise their offense is humming along like a machine.

Very entertaining first quarter so far. I think both of these teams look good in different ways.
