    Rutgers goes to 2-0 with win over FIU

    The Rutgers defense has been impressive albeit against inferior competition. This time the Scarlet Knights hold FIU to an opening drive FG and that's it. They held the Panthers to 147 yards passing, -6 yards rushing and 3 overall turnovers on 3INT's en route to a 56-3 win.

    "The defense was HUGE for us," said QB Tom Savage who threw 4TD passes in the game. "After that opening drive, they set the tone for the rest of the game." Savage was on his A game tonight, completing 16 of 25 passes for 264 yards and 4 scores and one on the ground. The run game was brillant today led by JR-RB Joe Martinek, who rushed for 158 yards on 25 carries 2 scores. Kordell Young, who took over the backup RB duties after DeAntwan Williams went down with injury, contributed with 107 yards rushing on 13 carries and a score himself.

    "It's good to come out on all cylinders before conference play," said coach Moreecemos.
