A big bowl victory for head coach Greg Schiano and his Scarlet Knights today in the Papa John's Bowl in dump ass Alabama. Senior all world QB Mike Teel hit NFL prospect junior Kenny Britt with a 42 yard TD pass midway through the 4th quarter to put the Scarlet Knights up 26-24 and kicker San San Te nailed a 24 yard field goal with :41 seconds to play for the final margin of victory. The sports staff at the Jersey City Desk were MOST IMPRESSED with the last Rutgers drive that took 11 plays, in 7:43, eating up any and all chance NC State had to come back. Never has a field goal drive been so valuable. Rob Cervini and Tiquan Underwood also scored touchdowns for the good guys.
So Rutgers finishes up at 8-5 and head into the 2009 season on a swell 7 game winning streak. Full marks to the Scarlet Knights for not quitting on this season after they fell to 1-5. We'd expect in light of such, Rutgers would start the 2009 pre-season polls at #1 or #2. But that's just us. The polls will do the same if they know what's good for them.
