Only 16 of that 23 was scored by the O, which is pretty good considering the talent on Rutgers' offense. It is not as much as Louisville's, but there is a bunch there.
The factor you completely gloss over is Louisville wished it had Rutgers' defense this year, they might be undefeated as well for this game. But they don't, and UC wins this game by ATLEAST 2 touchdowns.
