On the Gridiron
  • Rutgers coach Kyle Flood picked up his first career victory with a solid 24-12 win over Tulane at the Superdome. Rutgers took the lead early on a 46-yard touchdown run by Jawan Jamison and iced the game with a pick six by cornerback Brandon Jones.

  • Jamison eclipsed the century mark on the ground for the second straight game, after doing the same against Iowa State in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

  • Outside linebacker Khaseem Greene's 11.5 tackles helped Rutgers hold Tulane to just eight rushing yards.

  • South Carolina safety Sheldon Royster will transfer to Rutgers, according to sources close to St. Peter's Prep. Expected to join the team as a walk-on this week, Royster is a former four-star recruit and the No. 7 safety in the country.

  • Redshirt freshman Max Issaka rejoined the program last week after missing camp because of a death in the family. Flood said he could play as early as the Howard game.

  • Tight end Paul Carrezola (lower body) did not dress against Tulane. Senior defensive end Marvin Booker left the game early with an injury. An update is expected during this morning's press conference.

  • True freshmen Kyle Federico, Darius Hamilton and Leonte Carroo made their Rutgers debuts against Tulane.

Moore blocked a punt for a touchdown and Internicola recorded a sack in the game. Moore continues to look at Vanderbilt and Wake Forest along with Rutgers.
