Rutgers Scrimmage Report: Offense Ahead

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- The Rutgers offense sits comfortably ahead of the defense following the first of three spring scrimmages at High Point Solutions Stadium. Scout has an in-depth look at the first scrimmage, including impact players, depth notes and full statistics.

The first scrimmage became the offense's day for Rutgers with success in the red zone and a solid statistical showing for quarterback Chris Laviano.

Rutgers worked quarterbacks Laviano and Hayden Rettig often against the first-team defense and experienced more success than normal for an offense in the first scrimmage of a camp season.

"I think we've got a long way to go," said coach Kyle Flood. "There's certain things I'm really pleased with, but you get to the end of the scrimmage and our two-minute operation is just not where it needs to be to win football games."

Laviano led two touchdown drives, including a rush out of the play action and a pass to Leonte Carroo.

"His ability to show in the red zone that he can run the ball helped," Carroo said. "On the second play, we ran the same play and he found me in the back of the end zone. He's going out here competing."
