ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Blake Bortles passed for one touchdown and ran for another Thursday night, helping No. 17 Central Florida dominate Rutgers 41-17 to remain unbeaten in the American Athletic Conference.

The Knights (9-1, 6-0) won for the sixth straight time following a three-point loss to South Carolina, retaining sole possession of first place in the AAC - one game ahead of Louisville and Cincinnati.

Bortles threw a 4-yard TD pass to Breshad Perriman in the opening quarter and UCF scored on its first four offensive possessions to build a 28-7 lead.

Rutgers (5-5, 2-4) trimmed its deficit to 14 at the half when Andre Patton recovered a blocked punt in the end zone, however that was as close as the Scarlet Knights got the rest of the way.
