Rutgers Scarlet Knights
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.”
Gary Nova threw a 33-yard touchdown pass to Leonte Carroo on a fourth-and-10 play with 35 seconds to go.
“We need guys to step up, we need to have four or five double-figure scorers,” Jordan said. “We need to put points on the board, whether it’s creating stuff off defense or a very disciplined offense. It’s their time.”
Rutgers were routed by the Houston Cougars 49-14 in Saturday’s homecoming game.
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.
