Heroes React: Turay, Nova Rise to Occasion

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- A field goal block for Kemoko Turay solidified the first Big Ten victory in Rutgers history. Rutgers, winning 26-24 over Michigan, rode quarterback Gary Nova to 404 passing yards and three touchdowns in a mistake-three win. Both standouts spoke with Scout.com following an emotional locker room celebration.

Kemoko Turay didn't know the name of his position at this time two years ago, and now he is the savior of the first signature win under Rutgers coach Kyle Flood.

Turay used his unique athletic skill set to block a 56-yard Michigan field goal and open the floodgates for a storming of the field at High Point Solutions Stadium.

Quarterback Gary Nova redeemed his five-interception performance against Penn State with one of the best statistical games of his career. The senior captain led Rutgers with 404 passing yards, and an extreme composure.

Both heroes reacted emotionally in the locker room after a memorable night.
