There wasn't a lot of scoring in Rutgers' spring game on Saturday, but head coach Greg Schiano had to be pleased with the running game.

Joe Martinek, who will try to hold onto his starting job once some talented freshmen arrive this summer, rushed for 116 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries as the Scarlet team beat the White 16-7. Martinek did his damage behind a makeshift and still evolving offensive line, which will remain the No. 1 question mark of the offseason for Rutgers.

Tom Savage completed 17 of 30 passes for 181 yards, while freshman receiver Quron Pratt led the way with eight catches for 55 yards. San San Te added three field goals. Star receiver Mohamed Sanu did not play because of a head injury he suffered in practice earlier in the week.

Antonio Lowery and Steve Beauharnais paced the defense with 13 tackles each.

The Scarlet Knights honored defensive tackle Charlie Noonan as the toughest player of spring practice, while Tim Wright was named the most improved offensive player and Khaseem Greene was recognized as most improved on the defense.

Rutgers drew a school-record 20,114 fans to the spring game, the most in the Big East this year.
