PISCATAWAY, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Rutgers' strange three-game
homestand ended on a high note.
The Scarlet Knights caused eight fumbles and recorded eight
sacks en route to a 29-21 triumph over Kent State.
Ryan Hart overcame two interceptions to complete 19-of-30 passes
for 238 yards and two TDs for Rutgers (2-1), which beat
Michigan State in its season opener two weeks ago but lost to
Division I-AA New Hampshire last week.
In this one, Rutgers opened the scoring with a safety with 3:04
left in the first quarter when a punt snap by Kent State went
out of the end zone.
Rutgers grabbed a 9-0 lead on a 19-yard TD toss from Hart to
tight end Clark Harris less than two minutes later. Harris, a
junior, set personal bests with six catches for 108 yards.
The Scarlet Knights opened a 16-0 cushion 43 seconds into the
second quarter when Golden Flashes punter Joshua Brazen was hit
by Orlando Kane in the end zone and Corey Harris recovered for a
touchdown. Rutgers took a 23-7 edge into the half before
Joshua Cribbs completed 29-of-47 passes for 311 yards, one TD
and one interception for the Golden Flashes (1-2), who managed
just 30 yards on 38 rushes.
