I've just got a bad feeling about this one

     The number-22 Rutgers football team continues its drive for its first-ever Big East championship Saturday afternooon when it plays at Cincinnati on the new talk radio, 1450 WCTC and, the Voice of the Scarlet Knights.  RU is 8-1 overall and 4-0 in league with three games left.  The Bearcats are 7-2 overall and 3-1 in conference.  Cincy is a six-point favorite, mainly due to home field advantage.  This game worries me in many ways.  The Bearcats are very good...they're 3-0 against Rutgers at Nippert Stadium since entering the Big East...RU star running Jawan Jamison is not a full health...and I'm still not convinced that Scarlet sophomore quarterback Gary Nova is back on the beam after that six-interception debacle against Kent State.  Nova was really kept underwraps in last week's home win over Army.  Rutgers will cover the spread but I'm picking Cincinnati to win 24-21, putting a severe dent in the Scarlet Knights' title hopes.  Kickoff is noon; our coverage begins at 10:30 am with the pre-game show "Rutgers Gameday."
