Syracuse’s quarterback had come into Saturday’s game against Rutgers having thrown nine touchdowns to only one interception in Syracuse’s first four games of the season. But Nassib didn’t turn in the kind of performance that Syracuse fans have become accustomed to seeing, as the junior quarterback threw for zero touchdowns and three interceptions in Syracuse’s 19-16 double overtime loss to Rutgers.
Cincinnati and No. 18 South Florida continued to impress as the Big East went 5-2 in Week 4. The Bearcats routed the Wolfpack, while South Florida rolled over UTEP. Syracuse needed overtime to beat Toledo, while Connecticut and Rutgers also picked up wins. Pittsburgh fell at Notre Dame while No. 16 West Virginia got blown out at home against No. 2 LSU. Conference play begins next week.
