While Rutgers coach Kyle Flood doesn’t like to talk about the big picture, it’s hard to ignore at the halfway point of the Scarlet Knights’ first season in the Big Ten Conference.
Nova connected with James on scoring passes of 69 and 31 yards and added tosses of 38 yards to Leonte Carroo and 19 to John Tsimis as the Scarlet Knights (2-0) scored 31-straight first-half points to overcome an early deficit.
Playing in the Big Ten Conference, Rutgers (1-0) isn’t going to be favored in many games, if any. Its non-conference home opener against Howard (0-1) of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference is one of those games.
Gary Nova threw a 33-yard touchdown pass to Leonte Carroo on a fourth-and-10 play with 35 seconds to go.
