Rutgers Scarlet Knights
Before their rivalry comes to an end, the schools square off Thursday night in their lone meeting as American Athletic Conference members.
The Knights survived SMU’s rallies from two 21-point deficits in the first game in the new American Athletic Conference.
Rutgers will play host to the Owls in 2020 and 2022, while Temple will have the Scarlet Knights in Philadelphia in 2021 and 2023.
Kyle Flood has the potential to be a better head coach at Rutgers than Greg Schiano ever was.
Gary Nova threw touchdown passes of 33 and 4 yards to Leonte Carroo in the final 9:55.
Nova returned to practice on Tuesday, three days after being knocked out of the Scarlet Knights’ game against Eastern Michigan with a concussion on the opening series.
“I 100 percent believe I will walk again in my lifetime,” LeGrand told Carton. “I’m here to help so many other people, and I believe that I’m going to get a bunch of other people walking just like I am, and be able to live their dreams.”
LeGrand was given a sword by the Scarlet Knights with the word “believe” inscribed on it.
Senior Chas Dodd, who started 15 games in his first two seasons before losing the starting job to Nova last year, took over at quarterback.
Rutgers announced the NCAA’s reversal Friday night after Okoro’s initial request was rejected by the governing body last month.
The retirement ceremony will take place at halftime, and Flood said it’s just a temporary retirement of the number.
The Scarlet Knights dominated Norfolk State 38-0 on Saturday in their home opener.
Pernetti is not forgotten at Rutgers, and on days like Saturday when a Saeed Blacknall verbals to the program, it is clear that his work continues to live on.
LeGrand and his No. 52 will be honored in a ceremony Sept. 14 when Rutgers plays at home against Eastern Michigan. It will be the first number retired in the history of the program.
