Rutgers got yet another huge play from its special teams to swing momentum in its 27-12 win over Army on Saturday.
After Army closed to 13-12 early in the fourth quarter, Wayne Warren came up with a huge blocked punt midway through the decisive period. Jordan Thomas scooped up the ball and ran it in from 32 yards with 6:36 to play to essentially put the game out of reach.
It was the 51st non-offensive TD under Greg Schiano. Exceptional special teams play has always been a calling card of this team, and this season is no exception. Rutgers also got some huge plays from its defense, with two nice stands inside its own 3 early in the game limiting Army to field goals only.
On offense, Mohamed Sanu was the big story again as he broke the Big East single-season record for receptions. He now has 94, passing the mark of 92 set by Larry Fitzgerald in 2003. Sanu had 13 of the team's 17 catches on the day. Meanwhile, Chas Dodd had an up and down day in his first game back as a starter, with two touchdowns and interceptions.
