Rutgers looks to cap season with bowl victory

       PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - Rutgers accomplished one major goal this season, earning a share of the Big East title for the first time in school history.
     Though a 20-17 loss to Louisville in the finale dashed the Scarlet Knights' hopes for the program's first BCS berth, the consolation prize of the Russell Athletic Bowl presents coach Kyle Flood and his players with an opportunity to add another accomplishment.
     A victory over Virginia Tech on Friday would clinch a 10-win season, just the third since the program was credited with playing the first college football game against Princeton in 1869. It would also mark Rutgers' sixth straight bowl win dating to 2006.
     The Scarlet Knights (9-3) are playing in the most prestigious postseason game in school history.
