TV: 1-on-1 with FB Michael Burton

ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Fullback Michael Burton served as the lead blocker for three stellar efforts from Rutgers running backs against Navy. Highlighted by a 104-yard day from Justin Goodwin, Rutgers ran for a season-high 284 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 31-24 victory over Navy.

Michael Burton knew as a captain that leadership was crucial after the loss to Penn State. He saw the change early in game week and a focused team heading into kickoff against Navy.

Paul James tested that focus early with a fumble on his first touch that led to a seven-point deficit. Rutgers, however, bounced back with scores on five consecutive posessions and a gritty victory in Annapolis.
