CINCINNATI (AP) -- Savon Huggins ran for a career-high 179 yards, and Rutgers' defense had another shut-down showing Saturday in a 10-3 victory over Cincinnati that kept the 22nd-ranked Scarlet Knights in control of the Big East. Rutgers (9-1, 5-0) remained the only unbeaten team in conference play. The Scarlet Knights finish with games at Pittsburgh and home against No. 20 Louisville, which has one Big East loss. Huggins filled in for the injured Jawan Jamison and had a career day all around, leading an offense that did just enough. Gary Nova threw a 71-yard touchdown pass to Mark Harrison in the second quarter, and Nick Borgese made a 42-yard field goal in the fourth. The league's top defense took it from there, shutting out Cincinnati (7-3, 3-2) until Tony Miliano kicked a 36-yard field goal with 11 seconds left. Rutgers recovered the onside kick.
