West Virginia 41, Rutgers 39

December 02, 2006

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) ? Jarrett Brown threw a 22-yard touchdown pass in the third overtime and West Virginia knocked down Mike Teel's 2-point conversion pass to preserve a 41-39 win over Rutgers on Saturday night, denying the Scarlet Knights their first BCS berth and allowing Louisville to gain the automatic bid.

Brown ran for one touchdown and threw for another in his first career start to help No. 15 West Virginia (10-2, 5-2 Big East) cap its second straight 10-win season. Brown started for Pat White, who sat out the game with a sore ankle suffered in a loss to South Florida a week ago.

Starting with the third overtime, teams are required to go for 2-point conversions following touchdowns. Brown hit Brandon Myles across the middle for the go-ahead score against No. 13 Rutgers (10-2, 5-2), then found Dorrell Jalloh with the 2-point conversion pass for a 41-33 lead.
