PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Chas Dodd threw two touchdowns and Paul James ran for two as Rutgers finally nailed down its eighth bowl bid in nine years with a 31-6 victory over South Florida Saturday night.

The win snapped a three-game losing slide for the Scarlet Knights (6-6, 3-5 American Athletic Conference), and it is expected to set up a game with Notre Dame (8-4) in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium on Dec. 28. Bowl bids will be announced Sunday.

James ran for 113 yards, scoring on runs of 5 and 1 yards. Dodd threw for 179 yards, connecting on scoring passes of 12 yards to Andre Patton and 2 yards to Michael Burton.

Marvin Kloss kicked two field goals for South Florida (2-10, 2-6), which ended its first season under Willie Taggart with a six-game losing streak.
