Lunchtime links: The game that changed two programs


Posted by ESPN.com's Brian Bennett

* With Rutgers and Cincinnati meeting Saturday, Josh Katzowitz of the New York Times looks back at the 2006 game in which the Bearcats won 30-11. The fortunes for both teams have changed dramatically every since.

* Rutgers running back Kordell Young, who was feared lost for the season just a week or two ago, could return and play Saturday, Tom Luicci writes in The Star-Ledger.

* South Florida coach Jim Leavitt tells Brett McMurphy of the Tampa Tribune that injured defensive linemen George Selvie and Terrell McClain shouldn't have played against Pittsburgh.

* Rashaad Duncan is the unsung hero of the Pittsburgh defense, Paul Zeise writes in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

*The movie "The Express" depicts a racially-charged scene in which West Virginia fans throw garbage and epithets at Ernie Davis. One problem: people from both sides say that never happened, the Charleston Daily Mail reports.
