PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers coach Kyle Flood moved freshman Josh Hicks back to running back during the bye in search of more production at the position. Flood put an early emphasis on Indiana in the bye week to prepare for the final home game of the season and a chance to bounce back from three straight losses.
Josh Hicks with a role at running back gives Rutgers the best chance to win in the eyes of head coach Kyle Flood.
Moving Hicks back from safety to running back, Flood sees a role for Hicks against Indiana, and plans to get him ready during the bye week.
Rutgers is already in game-prep mode for Indiana with specific portions of practice focused on the Hoosiers. Flood broke it all down after Tuesday's practice.
