Rutgers sophomore quarterback Gary Nova was crowded by reporters and they all wanted to know a simple question - what happened? More specifically, what changed so drastically after intermission? Rutgers trailed 10-0 Temple at halftime, the first time this year the Scarlet Knights were scoreless at intermission. Nova threw touchdown passes on the first four second-half possessions, enabling the Scarlet Knights to improve to 7-0 in Saturday's 35-10 win over Temple at Lincoln Financial Field.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - The expectations from the outside are low as Rutgers begins its first season as a Big Ten football team, but the future financial projections are much better. In a writers' poll organized by Cleveland.com, Rutgers was picked to finish seventh and last in the Big Ten Eastern Division. While Rutgers adjusts to the rugged competition, the school and its fans are excited about the benefits that being in the Big Ten will bring the football program. A program-record 30,721 football season tickets have been sold, breaking the old mark of 30,500 set in 2009.

Duron Harmon scooped up a blocked field-goal attempt and ran 75 yards for a tie-breaking touchdown early in the third quarter Saturday, and No. 20 Rutgers rode its defense and special teams to a 23-15 victory over Syracuse in Piscataway, N.J. Big East Conference defensive player of the year Khaseem Greene forced three fumbles and intercepted a pass as Rutgers (6-0, 3-0) became bowl-eligible for the seventh time in eight seasons. Jawan Jamison scored on a 1-yard touchdown run, Gary Nova threw a 12-yard touchdown to Tyler Kroft, and walk-on placekicker Nick Borgese had a 25-yard field goal filling in for the injured Kyle Federico as the Scarlet Knights went to 6-0 for only the third time since 1976.

CINCINNATI - With another shutdown performance by its defense, No. 22 Rutgers stayed in control of the Big East. Reserve running back Savon Huggins had a career-high 179 yards, and the Scarlet Knights shut down the league's highest-scoring offense for a 10-3 victory over Cincinnati on Saturday that left Rutgers alone in first place. Rutgers (9-1, 5-0) knocked the Bearcats out of the race and maintained its one-game lead over No. 20 Louisville, which was idle. The Scarlet Knights finish with games at Pittsburgh and home against Louisville.

Jawan Jamison ran 151 yards and a touchdown and Kyle Federico kicked three field goals to help Rutgers begin Big East play with a 23-13 victory over South Florida on Thursday night in Tampa. Gary Nova threw for 277 yards and one TD for the Scarlet Knights, who snapped a 13-13 tie on Federico's 22-yard field goal with 2:48 remaining. Jamison sealed the outcome when he scored on a 41-yard run after USF (2-1, 0-1) turned the ball over on downs. It was the fourth consecutive 100-yard game for Jamison dating to last season, the longest string of 100-yard performances by a Rutgers player since Ray Rice had seven straight to end the 2007 season.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - The way Rutgers' defense is playing, Kyle Flood doesn't need much from his offense these days. Gary Nova threw two touchdown passes to Brandon Coleman, and the Scarlet Knights' swarming defense limited Howard to 149 total yards Saturday, giving Flood a 26-0 victory in his first home game as the Rutgers coach. "Just being out there in general is fun, but when you are hitting on all cylinders and you are holding them to minus yards and minimum gains, it's fun," said Scarlet Knights linebacker Khaseem Greene, the Big East defensive player of the year in 2011.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Rutgers all-American linebacker Khaseem Greene summed up the emotion of his team early Friday morning. It was just after midnight in the quiet locker room following a 20-17 loss to Louisville that cost the Scarlet Knights a BCS bowl berth, one that is almost assuredly going to the victors. Sure, Rutgers earned a share of its first Big East title. The Scarlet Knights (9-3 overall, 5-2 Big East) share the title with Louisville (10-2, 5-2) and Syracuse (7-5, 5-2), while Cincinnati (8-3, 4-2)

Grinding offense and suffocating defense, with a big play or two sprinkled in here and there. That's the Rutgers way and it worked to perfection in a 19-3 victory Saturday against Connecticut in Piscataway, N.J., that was anything but pretty, but totally effective. "If you could bottle today's game, you'd have Rutgers football," coach Kyle Flood said. Jawan Jamison ran for 110 yards for the 22d-ranked Scarlet Knights and Wayne Warren returned an interception 25 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter to leave no doubt about the outcome.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Some important things have changed since Rutgers began its first football season in the Big Ten last year. The Scarlet Knights got better as the season wound down. They closed by winning three of their last four games, scoring at least 40 points in those victories and closing their first campaign in a new conference with a 40-21 victory over North Carolina in the Quick Lane Bowl. But going into this season, which they open at home against Norfolk State on Sept.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - When Penn State visits Michigan next Saturday, the Nittany Lions will be facing a reeling team that continues to be among this year's biggest disappointments in college football. The struggles of one of college football's once-elite programs continued Saturday night with a 26-24 loss to Rutgers before a sellout crowd of 53,327 at High Point Solutions Stadium. Michigan is 2-4 overall, 0-2 in the Big Ten, and those howls for coach Brady Hoke's job won't be silenced by this performance.

For Penn State's players from New Jersey like Bill Belton, Brandon Bell, and Angelo Mangiro, coming back to the Garden State for one of the most historic games in the annals of Rutgers football and winning could not have been sweeter. Belton (Winslow Township High) raced 5 yards for a touchdown thanks to a terrific block by Mangiro, a junior center from Roxbury, N.J., with 1 minute, 13 seconds to play Saturday to give the Nittany Lions a 13-10 victory over the Scarlet Knights in the teams' Big Ten opener at High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway, N.J. Bell, a sophomore linebacker from Oakcrest High, had an interception in the fourth quarter, one of five thrown by Gary Nova.

STATE COLLEGE - Paul James is not an easy man to bring to the ground. Just ask Washington State. James, Rutgers' 6-foot, 205-pound running back, doesn't intimidate in stature, but rather his running style - he hits the hole with speed and power. After running for 173 yards and three touchdowns on 29 carries against the Cougars to open the season, James has caught the attention of Penn State, namely its linebackers. So far, the Nittany Lions' defensive front four have made things look easy.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Five times James Franklin hammered home what he wanted to talk about at his weekly news conference Tuesday, but he still had justifiable doubts about his attempt to steer the conversation. "I would like to talk about Rutgers, Rutgers, Rutgers, Rutgers and then maybe a little bit more about Rutgers," Franklin said as he addressed the media for the first time since the NCAA's announcement that the team's bowl ban had been lifted. "It's probably not going to happen, though.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - A year ago, two players with Philadelphia-area ties had breakthrough seasons for the Rutgers football team. As Rutgers prepares for its inaugural Big Ten season, junior running back Paul James (Glassboro High) and junior tight end Tyler Kroft (Downingtown East) will now be looking to build on their strong campaigns. James rushed for 881 yards and nine touchdowns in nine games. He missed four games last season with a lower leg injury. After the first three games, James was leading the country with 493 yards rushing.

As Rutgers begins play in the Big Ten this year, the Scarlet Knights have a 26-member recruiting class. But it's a player who won't be able to compete until 2015 who is among the most intriguing prospects. That's because quarterback Philip Nelson is the one player in this recruiting class with actual Big Ten experience. Nelson has transferred to Rutgers after playing two seasons at the University of Minnesota, where he made 16 starts and appeared in 19 games. In the two years he completed 169 of 338 passes for 2,179 yards, 17 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

As far as quarterback controversies go, it's probably best to have them early, settle things, and move on. This, however, is the opposite of what is going on at Rutgers, which will host Temple on Saturday. After a three-interception performance, junior starter Gary Nova was benched in favor of senior Chas Dodd in a 49-14 home loss to Houston. So second-year coach Kyle Flood announced an open competition between the two at the beginning of the week. On Sunday, Flood said he would make a decision by Thursday on which player would quarterback the Scarlet Knights (4-3, 1-2 American Athletic Conference)
