Video: Texas Bowl Trophy & MVP Award Ceremony

Moments after the Rutgers Football Scarlet Knights secured their first ever Bowl victory, the north endzone was quickly set up with a stage befitting the soon to be crowned Kings of Houston as the Texas Bowl representatives awarded RU Head Coach Greg Schiano with the Championship Trophy and Ray Rice with the MVP Award.

As has been the style of Ray Rice and the rest of the Scarlet Knights all year, awards, ceremonies and personal trophies are not for one member, but for all. As quickly as the MVP trophy was presented to Rice, he just as efficiently turned the tables, inviting his big brother and best friend Brian Leonard and his offensive line on to the big stage to share the award with them.

Coach Schiano, Ray Rice, and Rutgers' four captains all spoke on the big stage and Eric Foster greeted Scarlet Knight fans in attendance with his now famous We Came For melody as the celebration of Rutgers first-ever Bowl win was officially underway.
