PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Gary Nova has two years as a captain and the all-time touchdown record, but wants to add bowl victory to his resume before graduation. After losing the Russell Athletic Bowl in his only post-season start, Nova gets his chance at redemption Dec. 26 against North Carolina in the Quick Lane Bowl.
The Russell Athletic Bowl is, at best, a sore subject for quarterback Gary Nova, whose struggles led to a loss in Orlando.
Nova came off the bench in a Pinstripe Bowl win over Iowa State, but watched last year's loss to Notre Dame from the sidelines.
Nova gets his final chance in Detroit for a bowl win, which would be the first for Rutgers since Kyle Flood took over for Greg Schiano. Speaking after he learned about the matchup against North Carolina, the two-time team captain wants a stronger finish in 2014.
