Piscataway, N.J. • Defensive end Mark Fackler returned his second interception 25 yards for a touchdown, and Kent State forced five other turnovers to stun No. 18 Rutgers 35-23 on Saturday for its biggest win since its first game in 1920.
The Golden Flashes (7-1) had been 0-22 against ranked teams, but they ended the best start for Rutgers (7-1) since the Scarlet Knights were 9-0 in 2006.
Kent State intercepted Gary Nova six times and recovered a fumble to give the Mid-American Conference its second straight win over an undefeated Big East team. Toledo knocked off Cincinnati last week.
