One way or another, Gary Nova's Rutgers career comes to an end this winter, and the spring brings on a true position battle at quarterback.
Red-shirt freshman Chris Laviano now has three straight weeks of playing experience after sitting out his first year in the program.
Laviano spent the week preparing as a starter with Nova's knee injury. He is 8-for-23 for 76 yards in four games off the bench. Laviano has not thrown a touchdown or interception, but led three scoring drives against Nebraska.
