DT Kirksey Glad To Be Moving On

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers defensive tackle Kenneth Kirksey is glad to be past Navy and is looking forward to playing Tulane.

Kenneth Kirksey had five tackles against Navy, which was four more than he had in the first three games, but measuring his impact in the middle of Rutgers' defense goes much deeper than that.

Kirksey's role is to take on double teams and leave gaps for the linebackers to make tackles, and he has done that well this season.

However, even after his big production output against the Midshipmen, the fourth-year junior is glad Rutgers is playing a more conventional offense in Tulane on Saturday at High Point Solutions Stadium.
