Longa Ready Lead Into Big Ten

NEW YORK -- Rutgers linebacker Steve Longa was disappointed with the Pinstripe Bowl loss, but he doesn't plan on sitting around and lamenting. He is ready to lead the Scarlet Knights into the 2014 season and the Big Ten.

Steve Longa admitted he bit on a play-fake that left Notre Dame's tight end wide open at a critical juncture in the second half, but he also saw the strides the defense made in the last few weeks.

Following Rutgers' 29-16 loss to Notre Dame in the Pinstripe Bowl, the Scarlet Knights' red-shirt freshman spoke about the need for the defense to continuing working and to get better for the 2014 season as the program enters the Big Ten.
