Week 4 Football Bowl Projection Breakdown

Rutgers College Football Leonte Carroo

Just when we were all but giving up on the American Athletic Conference making things interesting for Louisville, the conference had a strong week. The Cardinals, of course, won 72-0 over Florida International, but Houston and Rutgers had more impressive victories. The Cougars remained undefeated after going to Rice and holding on for a 31-26 win. The Scarlet Knights were down 24-7 to Arkansas late in the third quarter, but a punt return for a touchdown by Janarion Grant sparked the Rutgers squad and then Gary Nova connected with Leonte Carroo for two fourth quarter touchdowns to give Rutgers the win. Cincinnati and Memphis also tallied victories this week and Connecticut, who looked like the worst team in the AAC, gave Michigan everything they could handle.
