Coach Kyle Flood announced on Sunday that James tore the ACL in his right knee when he took a Navy player’s helmet to his knee.
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.
Paul James ran for 173 yards and scored his third touchdown with 3:24 left to give Rutgers a wild 41-38 victory over Washington State on Thursday night in the Scarlet Knights’ first game as a member of the Big Ten.
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.
In 1963, 1010 WINS was a top 40 music station, playing the hits. But on Nov. 22, 1963, the music stopped — for more than three days.
Flood on the Bearcats: “They’ve got an excellent football team. I think you’ve seen that in the statistics and the games that they’ve won, and we’re looking forward to the challenge.”
The game was a lot closer than the final score in large part because Rutgers’ offense was stagnant after Chas Dodd replaced Nova.
The Scarlet Knights dominated Norfolk State 38-0 on Saturday in their home opener.
