Is that another of those words that means something different in America?
That is funny! However, it was Miami, so there may have been knives (edges) involved. JK Miami fans!
How about the Kentucky website:
No. 22 Kentucky Routs Mizzou (it actually says routes on the front page). It was a 4-2 match and Kentucky was down in the unfinished #5 match.
So, to me...a "rout" is 7-0 and being "edged" is 4-2 or 4-3.
However, the school's website usually try to shine the team in the best light!
