Rice runs over Ball State to earn International Bowl win

Saturday, January 5, 2008

TORONTO (AP) -- Ray Rice ran over, around and through Ball State in the International Bowl, giving Rutgers the second bowl win in its long history.

Rice had four touchdowns and 280 yards, including a career-long 90-yard score to lift the Scarlet Knights to a 52-30 win in the International Bowl on Saturday.

Rutgers (8-5), which played the first college football game, hadn't won a bowl game before last year. Now the program has won two in a row, following a 37-10 win over Kansas State in the 2006 Texas Bowl with another blowout north of the border.

Ball State (7-6), meanwhile, is still waiting for its first bowl win in four tries.

Rice, whose 25 touchdowns this season are a school record, has yet to announce whether he'll skip his senior season and enter the NFL draft. Players who choose to declare for the draft must do so by Jan. 15.
