Syracuse 13, Rutgers 13 (OT)
By Andrea Adelson
Syracuse and Rutgers are headed into overtime tied at 13 in one of the ugliest games so far this season.
Rutgers had a chance to win the game in regulation after Steve Beauharnais intercepted a Ryan Nassib pass late in the game. But San San Te missed a 44-yard field goal with 11 seconds left -- his third miss of the game. Syracuse has not been much better -- the Orange have one missed extra point, one missed field goal and one field goal blocked in the game.
Rutgers pulled starting quarterback Chas Dodd in favor of true freshman Gary Nova, who played the entire second half. Though he did not generate much offense, he threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Mohamed Sanu with 2:09 left to tie the game.
