Greene and cornerback Logan Ryan both earned various All-America accolades after the 2012 campaign.

has done something in his first two seasons that no other coach in school history has been able to accomplish in their first two years at Rutgers – lead the Scarlet Knights to two consecutive bowl appearances. Flood, the 2012 BIG EAST Coach of the Year, guided Rutgers to its eighth bowl in the last nine seasons with last year’s appearance in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl versus Notre Dame. Flood has the second-highest total of victories for any coach after two seasons in school history. Four players garnered all-conference honors in 2013 under Flood’s watch for the first time – sophomore tight end Tyler Kroft (first team), sophomore running back Paul James (first team), junior center Betim Bujari (second team) and true freshman return specialist Janarion Grant (second team).

In addition, Kroft earned All-America status from SI.com, becoming the first Rutgers tight end to be named an All-American since Marco Battaglia in 1995. Redshirt freshman middle linebacker Steve Longa earned several Freshmen All-America honors as he ended the season as the first middle linebacker at Rutgers to total over 100 tackles in a season since Gary Brackett in 2002.

Following the championship 2012 season, a schoolrecord seven players were selected in the 2013 NFL Draft. In addition, seven players also signed NFL free agent contracts as a total of 14 players from the 2012 squad joined the professional football ranks. While being part of a program producing victories at a rate unprecedented in Rutgers’ history, Flood has understood the value of academics for the Scarlet Knights. The Rutgers football program was the lone state university to be ranked in the top 10 percent nationally in APR for the seventh consecutive year in June. The latest APR figure coincides with the best football team grade point average since 2000. Three

Six players from the 2013 squad signed NFL free agent contracts following the 2014 NFL Draft. In all, 20 players have inked NFL contracts in Flood’s first two years as head coach at Rutgers. Flood’s first year as head coach of the Rutgers football program was as memorable as any firstyear coach in Rutgers’ 144 years of football. Flood guided Rutgers to its first BIG EAST Championship, earned BIG EAST Coach of the Year honors and won more games (nine) than any rookie head coach in RU history. Flood was named the 29th head coach at the Birthplace of College Football on January 31, 2012.

SECTION II: COACHING STAFF players earned a perfect 4.0 GPA during the fall semester while the team grade point average of 2.96 was a record high for the team for the fourth consecutive semester. Forty-three players finished the 2013 fall semester with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher while 24 student-athletes earned Dean’s List honors during the fall semester with at least a 3.5 GPA. Off the field, Flood has made an impact in community service. He has served the past two years as the honorary coach of the New Jersey Special Olympics, serves on the honorary board of directors for Lauren’s First and Goal Foundation and has taken an active role with volunteering with Embrace Kids Foundation. Flood was one of 17 people honored by the White House among Hurricane Sandy “Champions of Change,” earning the nod for Rutgers’ relief efforts after the deadly fall storm hit the Northeast region. The Rutgers football program under Flood’s leadership has helped raise over $175,000 for the New Jersey Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund. The Rutgers football team helped after Hurricane Sandy in several ways, including selecting 22 kids affected by Hurricane Sandy to play a flag football game in the final five minutes of the Scarlet-White spring football game, asking game attendees to make a $5 donation and working to remind everyone that there is still a lot to do before the state fully recovers from Hurricane Sandy. The Champions of Change program gave the White House a chance to honor groups of people doing great work in their communities. One constant on any coaching staff with Flood is how successful those teams have fared. In 16 of Flood’s 17 seasons as an assistant coach, his teams finished with winning records, including earning a National Championship at Delaware. A highly respected figure in the coaching profession, Flood has served as the assistant head coach of the program since 2008 and has been a key part in Rutgers’ six bowl appearances over his sevenyear tenure as an assistant in Piscataway. In addition to his four years as the assistant head coach, Flood has been in charge of the offensive line since coming to RU in 2005. During his time “On the Banks”, the Rutgers offensive line has consistently produced top-level talent, including several of which who have gone on to the National Football League. Most recently, Anthony Davis became the highest player ever drafted in Rutgers history as the 11th overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft. Davis has started every game of his three-year career with the San Francisco 49ers at right tackle and helped guide the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2013.

In addition, senior offensive guard Art Forst collected All-BIG EAST First Team honors while senior offensive guard Desmond Wynn was named to the All-BIG EAST Second Team. Wynn was signed as a free agent by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers following the 2012 NFL Draft. During his time as an assistant coach, Flood has coached 10 All-BIG EAST First or Second Team selections on the offensive line, one All-American and two Freshman All-America honorees. Flood has helped engineer some of the most potent offenses in Rutgers history – evident in a recordbreaking 2007 season. The Scarlet Knights’ offensive line ranked second in the nation with just 10 sacks allowed in addition to an RU offense that became the first in NCAA history to have a 3,000yard passer, 2,000-yard rusher and two 1,000-yard receivers in the same season.

The Rutgers offense was ranked 18th nationally in total offense in 2007. The offensive line featured two of the top tackles in the nation in Pedro Sosa and Jeremy Zuttah. Both players earned All-BIG EAST honors and were also invited to the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, with Zuttah becoming a third round selection by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Prior to his three seasons at Delaware, Flood was offensive line coach at Hofstra from 1997-2001. While at Hofstra, he helped the Pride earn berths in the NCAA FCS playoffs in 1997 and 1999-2001. The Pride were among the top offensive teams in the nation during his tenure, ranking second in total offense, fourth in passing and fifth in scoring in 2001.

Flood added run game coordinator to his duties in 2007 and his offensive line helped pave the way for All-American running back Ray Rice, who rushed for a school and then-BIG EAST record 2,012 yards that season. Rice went on to become one of the mostrecognizable faces in the NFL en route to consecutive Pro Bowl appearances in 2010 and 2011.

Flood, a 1993 graduate of Iona College, was a four-year letterwinner for the Gaels. A high school teammate of former Rutgers All-American tight end Marco Battaglia at St. Francis Prep High School in Queens, N.Y., Flood earned First Team All-Liberty Conference honors in 1991 and served as team captain of the Gaels in 1992.

In 2006, Flood coached an offensive line that helped Rutgers to one of its most productive seasons, as the group relinquished the fewest sacks in the nation with just eight. His unit was regarded as one of the best in the country and featured Cameron Stephenson and Darnell Stapleton, both who played in the NFL. Flood’s corps of hard-nosed blockers helped guide Rice to an All-America season, as he finished second in the nation with 1,794 yards.

Flood was a 2013 inductee into the Iona College Goal Club Hall of Fame.

Flood came to Rutgers after three seasons at the University of Delaware, where he helped the Blue Hens to a 30-11 record, including a 15-1 mark in 2003 en route to the NCAA FCS National Championship and a share of the Atlantic 10 title in 2004. He also served as assistant head coach and recruiting coordinator during his stint.

Flood’s first college coaching position came in 1995-96 as offensive line coach at Long Island University-C.W. Post. While coaching at C.W. Post, he helped the team to the ECAC Division II Eastern title in 1996. Flood began his coaching career at St. Francis Prep in 1993, as both offensive and defensive line coach in 1993-94. Flood and his wife, Amy, are the proud parents of three children, Kyle, Isabella and Joseph.

alph Friedgen

is in his first season as the offensive coordinator at Rutgers. One of the nation’s most highly acclaimed offensive coaches, Friedgen has coordinated the offense for both a collegiate national champion (Georgia Tech in 1990) and a Super Bowl team (San Diego in 1994). He is known as an offensive tactician who utilizes multiple looks and features a balanced offense both through the air and on the ground. Prior to joining Flood’s staff at Rutgers, the Harrison, N.Y., native spent 10 years (2001-10) as head coach at the University of Maryland. Friedgen has 32 years of assistant coaching experience (including 21 as an offensive coordinator either in college or the NFL) and received the Frank Broyles Award, given to the nation’s top assistant coach in 1999 while at Georgia Tech. Friedgen directed the Terrapins to unprecedented heights in his tenure, taking the program to seven bowl games, including a pair of New Year’s Day appearances, and a school-record five bowl victories. Prior to Friedgen’s arrival, Maryland had just one bowl game appearance in its previous 15 seasons. He was the 33rd head coach in school history and ranks third in school history in career victories (7550) and fourth in winning percentage (.600). Friedgen’s 75 wins rank 10th on the Atlantic Coast Conference all-time list and are more than the Terps had (60) in the 15 years prior to his arrival. The consensus National Coach of the Year in 2001 when he led Maryland to its first ACC title in 16 years, Friedgen ranks third in ACC history with five bowl wins and is one of eight coaches with seven or more bowl game appearances. He became the 13th coach in ACC history to amass 70 wins with the victory over Duke (Oct. 2, 2010). He was voted ACC Coach of the Year in 2001 and 2010, the final one coming when he engineered the second-best turnaround in the FBS. Maryland improved its win total by seven games in 2010 from the previous season and posted the 14th nine-win campaign in school history after finishing 9-4, including a victory in the Military Bowl. Three of those nine-win seasons came under Friedgen.

SEASON

A long-time successful assistant coach at Georgia Tech, where he was credited with overseeing one of the nation’s most potent offensive attacks, Friedgen had one of the best starts for a head coach in ACC history at Maryland. Not only were his 50 wins after six seasons more than those of Terps legend Jerry Claiborne, they also fell just shy of the all-time ACC mark of 51, set by Clemson’s Danny Ford in the early 1980s. In addition, in his first three seasons at the helm of the Terrapin program, Friedgen became the first coach in conference lore to lead a team to three-straight seasons of 10 wins or more. His 36 wins in his first four years ranked him in the top 10 in NCAA history, surpassing the fourth-year marks of coaches such as Frank Leahy and Joe Paterno.

SECTION II: COACHING STAFF Long overlooked as a head-coaching candidate, the Maryland alum was tapped as the Terps’ top man following the 2000 season, and he wasted no time in returning the program to the glory days it achieved when Friedgen was an assistant to Bobby Ross in the 1980s. In his first season as the Terps’ grid boss, Maryland won its first seven games and eventually halted Florida State’s reign as perennial ACC champion, earning the league’s automatic berth in the Bowl Championship Series’ FedEx Orange Bowl. By winning the ACC title that season, Friedgen became the first mentor in league history to win the championship in his first year as a head coach. His offensive success notwithstanding, Friedgen’s teams at Maryland have been solid on defense, ranking among the nation’s leaders annually while producing the ACC’s Defensive Player of the three times (E.J. Henderson in 2001 and 2002; D’Qwell Jackson in 2005). Friedgen spent 20 seasons with the aforementioned Ross in coaching stops at The Citadel, Maryland, Georgia Tech and the NFL’s San Diego Chargers. He returned to Georgia Tech in 1997, where he served another successful stint as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach under good friend George O’Leary, now the head coach at the University of Central Florida. A 1970 graduate of Maryland, where he earned a degree in physical education, Friedgen launched his coaching career as a graduate assistant before heading off to a series of jobs that included The Citadel (1973-79), William & Mary (1980) and Murray State (1981). In 1982, he returned to Maryland as offensive coordinator and offensive line coach under Ross, with Friedgen’s tenure lasting until 1986. During that stretch, the Terps captured three consecutive ACC championships (1983-85) and played in four bowl games. All told, the Terrapins were 39-15-1 from 1982-86 and won two bowl games (the Sun Bowl in 1984 and the Cherry Bowl in 1985). During his five-year stay at Maryland under Ross, Friedgen was instrumental in the development of future pro quarterbacks Boomer Esiason, Frank Reich and Stan Gelbaugh, all of whom spent at least 10 seasons in the National Football League. Esiason played professionally from 1984-97, Reich from 1985-98 and Gelbaugh from 1986-95.

When Ross was named head coach of the San Diego Chargers in 1992, he tapped Friedgen to serve as running game coordinator for two seasons (199293) before elevating him to offensive coordinator in 1994, when the Chargers advanced to the Super Bowl for the first time in franchise history. During his time with the Chargers, Friedgen helped a club that had not made the playoffs in a decade reach postseason play three times in five seasons. Known for developing balanced offensive attacks with multiple looks, Tech was one of only two teams in the country in 1999 to average at least 200 yards rushing and 200 yards passing. Tech also accomplished the feat under Friedgen’s guidance in 1990, ‘91 and ‘98. The 1999 team, with Joe Hamilton at quarterback, set 59 school records, rewriting many marks established by the 1990 national championship team, which was led by another Friedgen pupil, Shawn Jones (1989-92). Friedgen was a finalist for the Broyles Award as the nation’s top assistant coach in 1998 when the Ramblin’ Wreck set a thenschool record with 50 touchdowns. The first Maryland alum since Bob Ward (1967-68) to serve as the Terps’ head football coach, Friedgen originally came to Maryland as a quarterback in the mid-`60s and spent most of his career as an offensive lineman, lettering in 1966 and `68 and capturing Academic All-ACC honors. He was a twotime winner of the George C. Cook Memorial Award (1968-69) for having the highest academic average on the football team. Friedgen’s coaching roots run deep. His father, also named Ralph (though not a “Sr.”), was a high school coach for more than 30 years and masterminded, among other teams, the 1964 Westchester County (N.Y.) High School team that went undefeated and averaged 44 points per game running what was then an unusual multiple offense. It was an offense run by a 190-pound quarterback later recruited by Maryland who shared his name. Maybe as a sign of things to come, the younger Ralph called all of his team’s offensive plays from his junior year on. Friedgen and his wife, the former Gloria Spina, have three daughters: Kelley, Kristina and Katie. Friedgen was honored for his dedication to his family in June of 2007 when he was named Father of the Year by the Washington D.C. Father’s Day Council.

is in his third season as the running backs coach for Rutgers and second as the assistant head coach. Wilson helped mentor running back Paul James to First Team AllAmerican Athletic Conference status in 2013, as he totaled 881 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground in nine games. James led the nation in rushing early in the season and went on to lead the conference with 97.9 yards per game. Freshman Justin Goodwin also broke through under the tutelage of Wilson with 521 yards rushing, including three total touchdowns in a triple-overtime victory at SMU. In addition, RU ran for 273 yards in its home opener against Norfolk State, the highest rushing total for the Scarlet Knights since the 2008 International Bowl.

SEASON

In 2009, Wilson led Columbia to a fourth-place finish in the Ivy League, the Lions’ best league finish in six years. Columbia also posted its most wins in six years as eight players earned All-Ivy honors. Wilson, who served as offensive coordinator at UConn for four seasons, was one of five finalists for the Frank Broyles Award as the nation’s top assistant coach in 2004, a season in which the Huskies led the Big East in both total and scoring offense.

In 2002, Wilson was promoted to the Huskies’ offensive coordinator after joining the UConn staff in 1999 as offensive line coach. He continued to work specifically with the Huskies’ centers and guards.

In his first season “On the Banks,” Wilson played a crucial role in the development of Rutgers’ young running backs. Wilson helped sophomore Jawan Jamison have one of the most successful seasons in school history, as the ball carrier became just the seventh player in program history to record 1,000 yards in a season and the third since 1976. He earned Second Team All-Big East honors. Following his 1,000-yard season, Jamison was a seventh round NFL Draft pick of the Washington Redskins. Under Wilson’s guidance, both Jamison and sophomore running back Savon Huggins recorded 41 rushing attempts in single games in 2012, a school record. Jamison became the first Rutgers running back since Ray Rice to post six-straight 100-yard rushing games, and was just the third player in the program’s history to do so. One of the top assistant coaches in the nation while at the University of Connecticut, Wilson became Columbia’s 18th head coach in December 2005. Wilson’s student-athletes earned 33 All-Ivy League honors in his tenure, including two Rookies of the Year and 12 first team selections. After a 4-6 (2-5 Ivy League) season in 2010, Columbia had a total of eight student-athletes named AllIvy League in football, the second most in school history.

Included in that total are five players who earned AllAmerica or all-conference honors a season ago.

RU hosts Michigan (Oct. 4) before traveling to Ohio State (Oct. 18) and Nebraska (Oct. 25), concluding the stretch with Wisconsin at home (Nov. 1). Rutgers finishes the regular season with a home game against Indiana (Nov. 15) and road games at Michigan State (Nov. 22) and at Maryland (Nov. 29).

In what is arguably the most anticipated season in program history, RU hosts Penn State, Michigan, Wisconsin and Indiana at High Point Solutions Stadium this fall.

all 13 games in 2013, while sophomore Desmon Peoples had a productive spring and will look for meaningful carries. Junior Leonte Carroo leads a talented group of receivers in 2014. Last season, Carroo became the first Rutgers football player in history to catch three touchdown passes in his first career game at wide receiver at Fresno State. He tied for third on RU’s single-season list with nine receiving touchdowns in 2013. Behind Carroo, the Scarlet Knights are deep and young at wide out. Sophomores Ruhann Peele, Andre Patton, Janarion Grant, Carlton Agudosi and John Tsimis all saw action last season, with four of the five playing in 11 or more games. Peele, who also spent time on defense as a cornerback, caught 28 passes for 281 yards last season. The offensive line is a strong point for the Rutgers offense, returning five starters. The five – LT Keith Lumpkin, LG Kaleb Johnson, C Betim Bujari, RG Chris Muller and RT Taj Alexander – have combined for 99 starts over their careers and 123 total games played. A senior, Johnson is the most experienced of the group, starting in all 37 career games he has played in. Lumpkin, entering his junior season, also started all 13 games for the squad last season. At center, Bujari earned Second Team All-American Athletic Conference honors in 2013 and looks to continue his success this season. The tight end position is vital to the Rutgers offense, and Tyler Kroft looks to build on his breakout 2013 season. Last year, Kroft led RU with 573 yards receiving and 43 catches. The junior garnered SI.com All-America honors (Honorable Mention) and earned First Team All-American Athletic Conference recognition. Sophomore Nick Arcidiacono will serve as the main backup to Kroft. He saw time in seven games as a true freshman in 2013, tallying five grabs for 44 yards.

RUTGERS FOOTBALL INAUGURAL

DEFENSE The Rutgers defense welcomes back seven starters in 2014. Last season, the Scarlet Knights held opponents to just 100.8 rushing yards per game, the fourth-best mark nationally. RU, which blanked Norfolk State in 2013, is the only school in the nation to post a shutout in each of the last eight seasons. The new-look unit will be under the direction of first-year defensive coordinator Joe Rossi. Rossi directed one of the nation’s top special teams units over his first two seasons “On the Banks” and served as the defensive coordinator in the 2013 New Era Pinstripe Bowl. Sophomore Steve Longa and senior Kevin Snyder anchor RU’s group of linebackers. The two have switched positions, with Longa now playing weakside linebacker and Snyder taking over at middle linebacker. Last season, Longa was named a Sporting News Freshman All-American and led the squad with 123 tackles. He finished 27th nationally with 9.5 tackles per game. RU will also rely on experience from junior Quentin Gause and sophomore L.J. Liston. The defensive line brings back plenty of experience. Junior defensive tackle Darius Hamilton returns after posting a team-high 11.5 tackles for loss last season. Classmate Djwany Mera started all 13 games at defensive end a year ago. Kenneth Kirskey, Quanzell Lambert and David Milewski each hold valuable playing experience, while Sebastian Joseph, Julian PinnixOdrick and Kemoko Turay look to make an impact after having impressive performances in spring practice.

SEASON

safety Johnathan Aiken made three starts last season, sophomore corner Nadir Barnwell made four, sophomore corner Anthony Cioffi made five and senior corner Gareef Glashen made six. The starting jobs at corner are up for grabs in what proves to be a talented and tight competition.

SPECIAL TEAMS Junior place-kicker Kyle Federico holds an edge in the competition over classmate Nick Borgese, but both have valuable experience. Federico finished 2013 by making 12-of-18 field goal attempts, including eight of his last 10. Junior Joe Roth is the main candidate for the punting duties. He served as the backup punter last season. Grant is electric as a return man for RU, earning AllAAC Second Team honors as a return specialist last season. In 2013, he returned two kickoffs for touchdowns, including a 100-yard kickoff return at Fresno State on Aug. 29 on his first collegiate touch. Rutgers scored four special teams touchdowns in 2013. The Scarlet Knights also blocked four kicks, which tied for 10th nationally.

The secondary welcomes back five players who had starting experience in 2013. Junior strong safety Lorenzo Waters has started in 24 games in the last two seasons. Senior free 2 014 R U TG E RS FOOTBA L L M E DI A GUI DE

Even in its infancy, the conference established itself as the preeminent collection of institutions in the nation, where the pursuit of academic excellence prevailed as the definitive goal. The history of the Big Ten traces back nearly 120 years to the Palmer House hotel in Chicago, where on January 11, 1895, then-Purdue president James H. Smart and leaders from the University of Chicago, University of Illinois, University of Michigan, University of Minnesota, Northwestern University and University of Wisconsin set out to organize and develop principles for the regulation of intercollegiate athletics. At that meeting, a blueprint for the administration of college athletics under the direction of appointed faculty representatives was outlined. The presidents’ first known action “restricted eligibility for athletics to bonafide, full-time students who were not delinquent in their studies.” That important legislation, along with other legislation that would follow in the coming years, served as the primary building block for amateur intercollegiate athletics. On February 8, 1896, one faculty member from each of those seven universities met at the same Palmer House and officially established the mechanics of the conference, which was officially incorporated as the “Intercollegiate Conference Athletic Association” in 1905. Indiana University and the State University of Iowa became the eighth and ninth members in 1899. In 1908, Michigan briefly withdrew its membership, and in 1912 Ohio State University joined the conference, bringing its membership total back to nine. Upon Michigan’s return in 1917, the conference was first referred to as the “Big Ten” by media members, and that name was eventually incorporated in 1987. As the 1900s opened, faculty representatives established rules for intercollegiate athletics that were novel for the time. As early as 1904, the fac-

ulty approved legislation that required eligible athletes to meet entrance requirements and to have completed a full year’s work, along with having one year of residence. In 1901, the first Big Ten Championship event was staged when the outdoor track and field championships were held at the University of Chicago. The debut event marked what is now a staple of conference competition. Today, the Big Ten sponsors 28 sports, 14 for men and 14 for women, including the debut of men’s and women’s lacrosse this academic year, furthering the conference’s commitment to broad-based programming and providing opportunities to more student-athletes than any conference in the country. One of the conference’s proudest traditions began in 1902 when Michigan took on Stanford in the Rose Bowl, the nation’s first bowl game. Big Ten teams only appeared in Pasadena twice before the conference signed an exclusive contract with the Tournament of Roses in 1946, making it the first bowl game with permanent conference affiliations. But Michigan’s appearance in 1902 cultivated a relationship that has endured for more than a century. In January 2014, Michigan State defeated Stanford in the 100th Rose Bowl Game. Coupling the academic goals set forth by the leaders of the charter members of the conference and their steadfast commitment to athletics, the conference instituted the Big Ten Medal of Honor in 1915. It is awarded annually by each conference institution to a student of the graduating class who has attained the greatest proficiency in scholarship and athletics. It is the most prestigious honor a conference student-athlete can receive and in 2014, the conference celebrated its 100th anniversary. In 1922, Major John L. Griffith became the conference’s first “Commissioner of Athletics.” Griffith was the first of five men to assume the role of commissioner in the conference’s history, followed by Kenneth L. “Tug” Wilson in 1945, Bill Reed in 1961, Wayne Duke in 1971 and current commissioner James E. Delany in 1989. After nearly 30 years as a 10-member conference, the conference consolidated to a nine-school

SECTION III: 2014 OUTLOOK league when the University of Chicago formally withdrew its membership in 1946. Michigan State College (now Michigan State University) was added to the Big Ten three years later, bringing the number of affiliated conference schools to 10 once again. In 1955, the Big Ten formulated a revenue-sharing model designed to pool all football television rights of its members and share those proceeds equally. The conference and its members continue to utilize a revenue-sharing model, dividing media rights, bowl payouts and other profits among all conference institutions. In one of Duke’s first actions as commissioner, he oversaw the adoption of the Big Ten Advisory Commission in 1972, designed to study conference programs and make suggestions which would further Big Ten objectives. The Advisory Commission enlists former student-athletes to serve as liaisons to the NCAA’s Diversity and Inclusion Department, the Big Ten Student-Athlete Advisory Commission and other organizations. In 1981, the conference presidents and chancellors endorsed a proposal that enabled universities to affiliate their women’s intercollegiate programs with the conference, and the first conference championships for women were staged that fall. The Big Ten was the first conference to voluntarily adopt male and female participation goals after launching its Gender Equity Action Plan in 1992. In December of 1989, the conference agreed in principle to invite Pennsylvania State University for membership. On June 4, 1990, the Council of Presidents officially voted to integrate Penn State into the conference, giving the Big Ten 11 members. In 2004, the Big Ten implemented a pilot program of instant replay for college football. Following the season, the conference forwarded replay proposals to the NCAA regarding the future use of instant replay, where it approved country-wide testing in 2005. In 2006, the NCAA approved the use of instant replay for all conferences. In 2006, Commissioner Delany announced the creation of the first conference-owned television network, a 20-year agreement with Fox Cable Networks to create what would become the Big Ten Network (BTN). BTN launched on August 30, 2007, and will be in 60 million homes by the start of the 2014 football season. BTN is carried by all major cable, satellite and telco providers, as well as more than 300 cable operators across the United States and Canada. BTN2Go is the network’s 24/7 simulcast available on smartphones, tablets and the internet that also allows international fans to access BTN. On June 11, 2010, the Big Ten Council of Presidents/ Chancellors (COP/C) approved a formal membership application by the University of Nebraska, expanding the conference to 12 institutions.

ficially joined the Big Ten Conference on July 1, 2011. The conference expanded its footprint further in 2012 when the COP/C approved formal membership applications from the University of Maryland and Rutgers University on November 19 and 20, respectively. Maryland and Rutgers became official Big Ten members on July 1, 2014, giving the conference almost 9,500 student-athletes and more than 11,000 participation opportunities on 350 teams in 42 different sports. On June 3, 2013, the Big Ten announced that Johns Hopkins University had been accepted as the conference’s first sport affiliate member. Johns Hopkins’ addition in men’s lacrosse gives the Big Ten six institutions sponsoring the sport, allowing the debut of men’s lacrosse as an official conference sport and building on the Big Ten’s tradition of broad-based sports competition. In the fall of 2013, the Big Ten opened a new conference headquarters and meeting center in Rosemont, Ill. The newly constructed building is located 10 minutes from O’Hare Airport and has been designed to fully service the needs of nearly 200 meetings annually for Big Ten and Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) related committees and coaches groups. The new headquarters also features an interactive digital museum - the Big Ten Experience – which opened to the public on June 7, 2014, and brings the conference’s storied academic and athletic history to life. For more information, on the Big Ten Experience, go to bigten.org. In June 2014, the Big Ten opened a second office in New York City, featuring both office and meeting space in Midtown Manhattan. Three Big Ten staff members are based in the New York City office to provide expanded coverage and service, while other conference and institutional administrators will utilize the space as necessary when conducting business on the East Coast. The Big Ten and its member institutions also have access to satellite office space in Washington, D.C. Delany and his staff work to meet the educational needs of student-athletes to allow them to excel in both academics and athletics. The conference office manages 28 different championships and tournaments, offers legislative and compliance services, oversees the production and distribution of more than 1,200 events annually, provides staff services to coaching and administrative personnel and services media and fans interest for information on the Big Ten Conference. Nearly 120 years after its inception, the Big Ten remains a national leader in intercollegiate athletics on and off the field. Big Ten programs have combined to win more than 300 team and nearly 1,700 individual NCAA Championships, consistently taking home individual honors for athletic and academic accomplishments and fulfilling the Big Ten’s mission of academic achievement and athletic success.

RUTGERS FOOTBALL INAUGURAL 2013 SEASON REVIEW BOWL APPEARANCE A 47-yard field goal by Kyle Federico brought Rutgers within three with less than nine minutes remaining, but 10 unanswered points by Notre Dame iced the contest, as the Irish defeated the Scarlet Knights, 29-16, in the 2013 Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium. It was the eighth bowl trip in nine seasons for Rutgers. A Pinstripe Bowl record crowd of 47,122 watched a back-and-forth affair for the majority of the contest, with neither team leading by more than one possession until late in the fourth quarter. Brandon Coleman led RU in receiving with two catches for 65 yards and a touchdown, while Paul James logged 48 yards on 10 rushing attempts. Coleman’s touchdown late in the first quarter was the 20th of his career, tying him for the school record. Federico converted all three of his field goal attempts. TWO STRAIGHT BOWLS FOR FLOOD Kyle Flood became the first coach in 144 years of football at Rutgers to guide the Scarlet Knights to two consecutive bowls in his first two years as head coach. Flood and Greg Schiano are the only coaches in RU history to guide the Scarlet Knights to multiple bowl appearances. Flood has 15 victories in his first two seasons as head coach at Rutgers. The 15 wins rank him second in school history for wins by a head coach in his first two seasons. Flood’s nine victories in 2012 were the most by a first-year head coach in school history. He is the only coach in RU history to lead a team to a bowl and conference championship in their first season. Most Wins in First Two Years at Rutgers John F.

Smith finished the 2002 campaign with 32 receptions for 384 yards and three touchdowns. The 43 receptions are the most by a Scarlet Knight tight end since Clark Harris caught 53 passes in 2004. NATION’S LEADER AMONG FRESHMEN Redshirt freshman LB Steve Longa led all freshmen nationally with 9.5 tackles per game in 2013. The New Jersey product had three games with 12-plus tackles in 2013. In all, Longa has 123 tackles on the year, first among all freshmen nationally. Longa ranked 27th nationally in tackles per game. It marked the fourth-straight season a Rutgers player has totaled over 100 tackles in a season and the most by a middle linebacker since Gary Brackett finished with 130 stops in 2002. Longa was the first Rutgers freshman to record 100 tackles in a season since defensive back Courtney Greene in 2005. Greene totaled a team-high 116 stops in 2005.

THE GLASSBORO EXPRESS RB Paul James led the American Athletic Conference in 2013 with 88.1 rushing yards per game. James missed four games with a lower leg injury suffered September 21 in the Arkansas win. He returned to the starting lineup November 16 against Cincinnati. James led Rutgers with 19 carries for 78 yards (4.1 yards per carry) against the Bearcats. The first-year starter averaged 5.7 yards per carry and was one of just 10 players in the country with four runs of 50 yards or longer last season. James also finished second in the conference with nine rushing touchdowns in 2013. SUPER NOVA QB Gary Nova started the 2013 season with 348 yards passing and five touchdown passes at Fresno State (August 29). He set a school record for passing yardage and touchdown passes in a seasonopener with his performance against the Bulldogs. The 348 yards passing rank No. 14 in Rutgers’ single-game history and Nova became only the second player in school history to have at least two fivetouchdown games. Only Mike Teel (seven vs. Louisville, six vs. Pittsburgh) in 2008 has also had two games of at least five touchdown passes. Nova also threw five TD passes in the win at Arkansas in 2012. Nova ranks fifth in school history with 6,407 career passing yards and 502 completions and third with 51 touchdowns. He is the fifth quarterback in RU history to reach the 6,000-yard passing plateau.

FRESNO ST. 52,

RUTGERS 51 (OT)

Thursday, Aug. 29, 2013 • Bulldog Stadium • Fresno, Calif • 33,098

FRESNO, Calif. (Aug. 29, 2013) – In its seasonopener, the Rutgers football team dropped a hardfought overtime game at Fresno State, 52-51, in Bulldog Stadium. The Scarlet Knights were led by sophomore running back Paul James (Glassboro, N.J.), who had a career day with 182 yards on the ground. Nova threw for 348 yards and five touchdowns. Junior wide receiver Brandon Coleman (Accokeek, Md.) led the squad with nine receptions and posted 94 yards receiving, while sophomore wide receiver Leonte Carroo (Edison, N.J.) hauled in three touchdowns and amassed a team-high 135 receiving yards. Defensively, redshirt freshman linebacker Steve Longa (Saddle Brook, N.J.) led the team with nine tackles. The Bulldogs got on the board first with a 10-play, 74-yard drive capped by a three-yard touchdown run by running back Josh Quezada. The Scarlet Knights answered quickly with the help of true freshman Janarion Grant (Trilby, Fla.), who scampered 100 yards to pay dirt on his first-ever collegiate touch on the ensuing kickoff. The extra point by sophomore kicker Kyle Federico (Ponte Vedra, Fla.) tied the game, 7-7, with 11:53 remaining in the opening quarter. After holding Fresno State to a three-and-out, Rutgers took over possession. In a drive highlighted by a 28-yard pass and catch from Nova to Coleman, the Scarlet Knights posted three points as Federico nailed a 48-yard field goal to give RU a 10-7 lead with 7:31 on the clock in the first. Early in the second quarter, the Bulldogs drove the ball to the Rutgers eight-yard line before redshirt freshman cornerback Ian Thomas (Baltimore, Md.) intercepted Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr in the end zone. The Scarlet Knights capitalized on the turnover with just two plays as Nova hit Carroo for a 69yard scoring strike. RU took a 17-7 lead with 14:30 2 014 R U TG E RS FOOTBA L L M E DI A GUI DE

remaining in the half. Rutgers held Fresno State to another three-and-out and forced the Bulldogs to punt. The Scarlet Knights took over at their own 42yard line. With the help of another Nova-to-Coleman big play, this time for 23 yards through the air, RU got into field goal position and Federico put one through the posts from 29 yards out. After recovering an RU muffed punt, Fresno State went 41 yards on nine plays and found the end zone at the 4:17 mark in the second quarter to cut Rutgers’ lead to 20-14. The Bulldogs closed the half with an 11-play, 80-yard touchdown drive to score with one second remaining on the clock to take a 21-20 lead into the break. In its second possession of the second half, the Scarlet Knights regained the lead. A 65-yard run by James got Rutgers down to the Fresno State 5-yard line and set up an 18-yard field goal by Federico to give RU a 23-21 advantage with 9:48 on the clock in the third. Fresno State got the ball back and drove 75 yards on 10 plays, ending with a touchdown pass from Carr to WR Josh Harper for an 11yard score. FSU regained the lead, 28-23, with 7:43 left in the third stanza. Late in the third, James was again the highlight for the Scarlet Knights. He tallied 69 yards, including a 55-yard burst, which led to a one-yard touchdown pass from Nova to Coleman. Rutgers went for the two point conversion, and was successful as Nova rushed in on a quarterback draw to give the Scarlet Knights a 31-28 lead with 40 seconds on the board in the third. The Bulldogs scored first in the fourth, going 40 yards on three plays, finding the end zone to take a 35-31 lead with 11:08 to go in the game. With 7:51 on the clock, Rutgers senior cornerback Lew Toler (New Castle, Del.) recovered a fumble by Fresno State RB Marteze Waller at the Bulldogs’ 33-yard line. Later, Rutgers had a fourth-and-three play from the Bulldogs’

The Bulldogs responded with a 47-yard field goal by Colin McGuire on the next possession with 3:48 on the clock, tying the game at 38-38. With 1:18 remaining, Nova found Carroo for the third time in the corner of the end zone for a 30-yard score with 1:18 on the clock. The Bulldogs answered, tying the game at 45-45 with 38 seconds left. RU drove down the field late, but missed the game-winning field goal wide right to send it to overtime. On the first play of overtime, Fresno State’s Carr found wide receiver Greg Watson for a touchdown, taking the 5245 lead.

Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013 • High Point Solutions Stadium • Piscataway, N.J. • 49,111

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (Sept. 7, 2013) - Sophomore running back Paul James (Glassboro, N.J.) rushed for three touchdowns and 119 yards, the defense played lights out and the Rutgers football team (1-1) won its 99th home opener, 38-0, over Norfolk State at High Point Solutions Stadium. The Scarlet Knights scored 21 first-quarter points, led by two rushing TDs from James, and never looked back, as they improved to 3-0 all-time against the Spartans. RU has outscored Norfolk State, 128-0, in the three meetings between the two schools. “A great day to be 1-0, but we certainly could not have done it without our fans and student section,” said head coach Kyle Flood. “I have not heard the final numbers but I thought they were just outstanding. They were into it from the moment I arrived at the stadium today, they forced a delay of game penalty against our opponents today and along with a couple other things they allowed us to give [Director of Intercollegiate Athletics] Julie Hermann her first game ball. I know the team was excited to do that.” Junior quarterback Gary Nova (Elmwood Park, N.J.) was an efficient 12-for-21 with 150 yards and a touchdown, as he spread the ball around the field all game. Seven different RU players caught balls from Nova, as freshman Ruhann Peele (Linden, N.J.) caught his first career touchdown on a quick slant in the first quarter. Junior linebacker Kevin Snyder (Mechanicsburg, Pa.) led the Scarlet Knights’ defense with seven tackles and 0.5 tackles for a loss on the afternoon. Senior defensive end Marcus Thompson (Oakland Park, Fla.) added a sack, the third of his career, while senior linebacker Jamal Merrell (Bear, Del.) recorded his second career interception and first of 2013. “I think the game was significantly different [than last week against Fresno State],” Flood said. “I don’t know that once we made the corrections from last week that this game would be impacted by it, but I think it was 2 014 R U TG E RS FOOTBA L L M E DI A GUI DE

important for us to play good defense. We have a tradition here of playing good defense and today I think the final stat was something like 26 or 27 carries for 59 yards, and that’s the way we want to play games.” RU notched its final points of the day with 13:55 remaining in the fourth quarter, as sophomore Kyle Federico (Ponte Vedra, Fla.) kicked a 24-yard field goal to extend the Rutgers lead to 38-0. Paul James rushed for his third TD of the game on an eight-play, 49-yard drive midway through the third quarter. James capped the scoring drive with a 25-yard rush up the left sideline, putting him over the century mark (119 yards) for the second consecutive game. With that score, RU took a 35-0 lead with 5:47 left in the third quarter. He became the first RU running back to rush for three touchdowns since Jourdan Brooks did it in a 45-7 win over Howard on Sept. 12, 2009. RU also scored four rushing touchdowns for the first time since defeating Texas Southern, 42-0, on Oct. 10, 2009. “We came into the game today wanting to run the football, and we were able to do that a little bit more consistently than we were able to do it last week,” Flood said. “I don’t think we got as many big explosive plays as we did last week, but I think we ended up churning up 273 yards rushing at the end of the day. That’s a good day’s work up front and that was one of our primary goals as a coaching staff – to hopefully come into the game and run the ball effectively throughout the game, not just in the first half or the second half.” Less than five minutes into the second half, Merrell picked off Malik Stokes – the second of his career – to give RU the ball on Norfolk State’s own 30-yard line. Rutgers started its drive with 12:10 on the clock, as junior running back Savon Huggins (Jackson, N.J.) carried the ball three times before eventually crossing the goal line for a 1-yard score. The touchdown was the eighth of Huggins’ career and gave the Scar-

SECTION IV: 2013 SEASON REVIEW let Knights a 28-0 lead with 9:41 remaining in the third quarter. The Scarlet Knights took a 21-0 lead into the locker rooms at halftime, as James led the way on the ground in the first half with two touchdowns and 69 yards on 12 attempts. James scored his second touchdown of the afternoon just before the first quarter expired, taking it 10 yards off the right side to give Rutgers a 21-0 lead. He finished the first period with two touchdowns and 45 yards on nine carries. Redshirt freshman Steve Longa (Saddle Brook, N.J.), who tied for second with five tackles on the day, set RU up for its second strike of the first quarter after the linebacker punched the ball out on a Rolandan Finch carry. Longa fell on the fumble – the first forced fumble and recovery of his career – giving the Scarlet Knights possession on the Norfolk State 19-yard line. Three plays later, Nova found Peele on a quick slant for an 8-yard touchdown grab – the first of his career. That score made it 14-0 RU with 5:14 to go in the opening stanza. Rutgers’ 21 first quarter points are the most scored offensively since it recorded 32 in the second quarter of a 45-7 win over Howard on Sept. 12, 2009. RU’s special teams unit helped the squad to its first points of the afternoon, as senior wideout Quron Pratt (Palmyra, N.J.) leaked through the middle on a Norfolk State punt to block RU’s first kick of the season and first since Sept. 8, 2012 against Howard. Freshman Anthony Cioffi (Springfield, N.J.) was there to scoop up the ball, giving Nova and the offense possession on the Rutgers 15-yard line. After a drive-starting penalty, James broke an eight-yard carry and Nova threaded the needle to Pratt on a deep out to make it thirdand-1 from the 5-yard line. Nova missed Coleman in the end zone on the third down play, but James carried it the rest of the way, converting the fourthdown attempt and crossing the goal line on his very next carry. The touchdown run made it 7-0 Rutgers with 6:48 remaining in the first quarter and was the first of James’ career.

Saturday, Sept. 14, 2013 • High Point Solutions Stadium • Piscataway, N.J. • 47,604

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (Sept. 14, 2013) – On a historic Saturday for Rutgers football, the Scarlet Knights downed Eastern Michigan, 28-10, at High Point Solutions Stadium. Head coach Kyle Flood addressed the crowd at halftime, as former player Eric LeGrand watched his No. 52 become the first jersey number to be retired in 144 years of Rutgers football. “I think the game was exactly the type of game that I anticipated, a very physical football game; two teams that really wanted to run the football, and based a lot of their offense off of the ability to run the football. I think I would be remiss if I didn’t talk a little bit about being out there at halftime with Eric. It’s the first halftime I think I’ve been on the field for in 20 years, and I thought it was important that I be there, to at least start the ceremony as the person on the staff who was here with Eric. And it’s an emotional thing for me to do it, to present him with this award, to present him with the number up in the stadium now and then to be able to start the video, a lot of really special people from his life were able to be a part of that ceremony by videotape, and I thought that that was great, and I know he appreciated it.” LeGrand spoke briefly to the crowd following the unveiling of the No. 52 atop the west upper concourse of the stadium. All 47,604 fans in attendance held up signs with the No. 52 in honor of LeGrand, who fractured his C3 2 014 R U TG E RS FOOTBA L L M E DI A GUI DE

and C4 vertebrae making a tackle against Army on Oct. 16, 2010. LeGrand also received an honorary sword from Coach Flood and the Rutgers football staff to commemorate his number retirement. Junior Paul James (Glassboro, N.J.) sparked the Rutgers offense on the ground, rushing for more than 100-yards (192) for the third time in 2013 and scoring three touchdowns for the second game in a row. James averaged 9.1 yards per carry, breaking off two 50-plus yard runs for touchdowns in the rout. Senior Chas Dodd (Lyman, S.C.) replaced an injured Gary Nova (Elmwood Park, N.J.) in the first quarter, going 4-for-9 for 45 yards. Prior to leaving the contest, Nova was 4-of-4 for 44 yards. The RU defense was stellar as well, holding the Eagles to 38 yards on 40 attempts. Freshman linebacker Steve Longa (Saddle Brook, N.J.) led the charge with 12 total tackles, while senior Lorenzo Waters (Accokeek, Md.) intercepted his first pass of the season and second of his career. “It’s always tough before you look at the film,” Flood said. “I can tell you the guys that I saw flash during the game. I see a guy like [fifth-year senior] Isaac Holmes (Hoboken, N.J.) with a TFL. I see [junior] Daryl Stephenson (Sayreville, N.J.) with a TFL which is great, because Daryl is a guy that’s starting to play more and more for us.

RU also racked up six sacks in the dominant outing, with Longa and Thompson also leading in that category with 2.0 and 1.5 sacks, respectively. James capped the game with 7:04 remaining in the fourth quarter, bursting for 52 yards up the sideline for a touchdown – his third of the game. The score raised his season total to six, matching the overall total for RU running backs last season. His second score of the day came with 11:03 left on the clock in the third quarter on a 55-yard rush to make it 21-10 Rutgers. The score followed EMU’s second quarter touchdown – its lone touchdown of the game – which occurred at the 7:25 mark in that period. Quarterback Ryan Brumfield found tight end Tyler Benz for a 43-yard touchdown to complete a fiveplay, 83-yard drive and make it a 14-10 Rutgers advantage. RU got going quick in the first quarter of play, notching 14 points to take a 14-3 lead. James opened the game with a 13-yard touchdown run, completing an impressive eight-play,87-yard drive. Not to be outdone, senior Quron Pratt (Palmyra, N.J.) took a kickoff 99 yards to a touchdown. The return was the first of his career, and made it 14-3 RU after and Eastern Michigan field goal. It was RU’s second kick return for a touchdown this season, both of which have occurred in the first quarter of play.

ARKANSAS 24

Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013 • High Point Solutions Stadium • Piscataway, N.J. • 51,969

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (Sept. 21, 2013) – Twenty-one unanswered points, sparked by a 58-yard punt return late in the third quarter by freshman Janarion Grant (Trilby, Fla.), propelled the Rutgers football team to a 28-24 victory over SEC foe Arkansas at High Point Solutions Stadium. Rutgers wrapped up non-conference play at 3-1, while Arkansas also moved to 3-1. Sophomore wide receiver Leonte Carroo (Edison, N.J.) hauled in a pair of fourth quarter touchdown catches from junior quarterback Gary Nova (Elmwood Park, N.J.) – his teamleading fourth and fifth of the season – and the RU defense did the rest, forcing the Razorbacks into three fourth-quarter punts before icing the game. “I can talk about our crowd today for probably an hour in terms of the energy that they brought to the game,” said head coach Kyle Flood. “They got in there at an earlier time I think than we usually do; staying even when the game seemed very hard at times, and as disruptive a crowd as we’ve had here 2 014 R U TG E RS FOOTBA L L M E DI A GUI DE

probably since the 2006 Louisville game. It was deafening loud when they were on offense in that fourth quarter, and I can’t thank them enough for that. That is what a home field advantage should be. It’s what a home field advantage can do for a football team and it’s one of the factors in the win today, there’s no doubt about it.” Sophomore tight end Tyler Kroft (Downingtown, Pa.) had a career day, hauling six catches for 133 yards and a touchdown. Kroft is the first RU player since Carroo in at Fresno State to post at least 100 yards receiving in a game. The Rutgers defense passed in its biggest test of the season thus far, holding the Arkansas ground game to 101 yards on the day. The Razorbacks averaged 294.3 yards per game entering the matchup, as Alex Collins, the nation’s seventhleading rusher entering the contest, ran 16 times for just 74 yards. Junior linebacker Kevin Snyder (Mechanicsburg, Pa.) led the team with 10 tackles as sophomore linebacker Quentin Gause (Roch-

Nova and the Scarlet Knights offense connected on three passes of 25 yards or more on the squad’s 98-yard scoring drive with 9:55 remaining, capped by Carroo’s 33-yard score up the right sideline to make it 24-21 Arkansas. Following a 47-yard punt return by Grant, Nova again led his team into the end zone, going 3-for-5 and hooking up with Carroo for his second touchdown of the game and fourth in the final quarter of action this season. That gave Rutgers its first lead of the game with 5:18 remaining in regulation, and the defense responded by forcing Arkansas to punt the ball away on its next possession. Junior running back Savon Huggins (Jackson, N.J.) did not give it back to the Razorbacks, rushing six times to eat the clock and secure RU’s first-ever home victory against and an SEC opponent. Grant turned the game around for RU late in the third quarter, as Arkansas’s Sam Irwin-Hill attempted a rugby-style punt to Grant at around midfield. Grant received the ball and began his run in the right middle of the field, before cutting back left and breaking away for RU’s first punt return touchdown of the season. With the return score, Grant became the first RU player since Willie Foster in 2005 to record both a punt return and kickoff return touchdown in the same season. Prior to Grant’s touchdown, Arkansas controlled momentum, scoring 14 unanswered points to take a 24-7 lead. Running back Jonathan Williams received a pitch right with 8:38 to go in the third quarter before pulling up and tossing a 21yard pass to Hunter Henry in the back right of the end zone. The trick play gave RU its biggest deficit of the season and followed a 10-play, 75-yard Arkansas drive to begin the second half. That scoring drive was capped by a 17-yard touchdown pass to Javontee Herndon, putting Arkansas up, 17-7. RU entered the locker rooms trailing 10-7 at halftime, despite outgaining Arkansas 208-103 in total offense. Nova connected with Kroft for a 15-yard touchdown pass – the second of his career – with 0:39 seconds remaining in the period to make it 10-7 Arkansas. Arkansas jumped out to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter of action, knocking in a field goal with 1:51 remaining in the period and returning a Nova interception 26 yards for a touchdown on RU’s next possession.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Oct. 10, 2013) – Falling behind early, Rutgers got the game within one score, but a late touchdown by No. 8 Louisville handed the Scarlet Knights a 24-10 loss at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. Redshirt freshman linebacker Steve Longa (Saddle Brook, N.J.) led the Rutgers defense with 11 tackles in the contest. The Cardinals got on the board first.

After alternating possessions, Louisville grabbed an interception and took over on the Rutgers 35 yard line.

tight end Tyler Kroft (Downingtown, Pa.) for a 26yard gain. On the very next play, Nova found Kroft in the end zone to cut the Louisville lead to 17-7 with 2:01 to go in the second. The score would remain going into the break. The Cards took over the ball to start the second half.

UofL attempted a field goal, but it was blocked by Rutgers senior linebacker Jamal Merrell (Bear, Del.), the sixth blocked kick of his career. The Scarlet Knights would not capitalize on the special teams play. On Louisville’s next drive, it was the Rutgers defense that came up big this time. On first-and-10, Perry took the ball on a handoff up the middle and senior defensive end Marcus Thompson (Oakland Park, Fla.) forced him to fumble, which was recovered by freshman cornerback Anthony Cioffi (Springfield, N.J.) at the UofL 36 yard line. The Scarlet Knights capitalized, shaving Louisville’s lead to 17-10 after a 36-yard field goal by Federico with 14:10 left in the contest. Louisville got the ball again and drove again, down to the RU five-yard line. Cioffi made another huge play, coming around the end and hitting Bridgewater, who lost the ball. Rutgers junior defensive end David Milewski (Sayreville, N.J.) recovered the ball, giving the Scarlet Knights possession with 10:06 on the clock. On Rutgers’ ensuing possession, the Cardinals recorded another interception and took over at their own 48-yard line. Wallace lined up for a 45-yard field goal, but missed, giving the Scarlet Knights the ball at their 28-yard line. Another RU turnover gave UofL the ball again with 5:29 remaining on their 40-yard line. Following a 42-yard run by Perry, Louisville was at the Rutgers 13-yard line. Three plays later, Bridgewater hit wide receiver Eli Rogers for a 6-yard touchdown, putting UofL up 2410 with 2:27 left. The Scarlet Knights took over, but wouldn’t score in the final minutes.

Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013 • High Point Solutions Stadium • Piscataway, N.J. • 52,200

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (Oct. 26, 2013) – Rutgers football dropped a 49-14 contest against conference foe Houston at High Point Solutions Stadium. Freshman running back Justin Goodwin (Madison, N.J.) recorded his second 100-yard rushing game of the season in the loss, recording career-highs in rushing attempts (31) and rushing yards (165). After RU made it 14-14 late in the second quarter, the Cougars scored the final 35 points of regulation to secure the victory in front of Rutgers Homecoming crowd of 52,200. “I would like to start by thanking the fans. I thought the fans were out in force today and I’m disappointed that we didn’t give them more to cheer about,” said head coach Kyle Flood. “We certainly did not have one of our better days. I have to compliment the University of Houston and Tony Levine’s team. I thought they were an excellent team coming in and certainly they proved that.” After a Goodwin score made it 14-14 with 4:56 remaining in the second quarter, Houston responded with an 83-yard touchdown from Deontay Greenberry to take a 21-14 lead. From there, the Cougars scored 28 more points en route to their third conference win. RU suffered from six turnovers in the loss. Freshman Carlton Agudosi (Somerset, N.J.) hauled in the first two passes of his career to lead Rutgers in receiving with 59 yards. Senior quarterback Chas Dodd (Lyman, S.C.) entered the game in the third quarter for junior Gary Nova (Elmwood Park, N.J.) and went 11-for-15 with 78 yards and an interception. Nova was 7-for-15 with 138 yards and three interceptions before Dodd entered the 2 014 R U TG E RS FOOTBA L L M E DI A GUI DE

game in the third quarter. RU recorded a pair of sacks on Houston’s final drive of the first half, as junior defensive back Gareef Glashen (Miami, Fla.) sacked quarterback John O’Korn as time expired to make it 28-14 Houston entering the locker rooms. The Cougars took advantage of RU’s third turnover of the game with 5:54 remaining in the first half, as O’Korn heaved his third touchdown pass in the period to put Houston ahead, 28-14. Houston quickly responded after an RU score to make the game 21-14 with 6:46 left in the half. O’Korn found Deontay Greenberry up the seam about eight yards down field and Greenberry did the rest, sprinting 83 yards for a touchdown. It was the longest play from scrimmage allowed by the Rutgers defense since Arkansas recorded an 80-yard touchdown on Sept. 22 of last season. Goodwin scored his second touchdown of the day midway through the second quarter, bursting outside after reaching the edge for a 14-yard score. The touchdown scamper was his second of the day. The touchdown gave Goodwin his second-career multi-score game after he recorded two in the win over SMU on Oct. 5. The 6-foot, 180-pound back also went over 100 yards for the second time in his career. Houston took a 14-7 lead with 11:59 left in the second quarter on a six-play, 87-yard drive capped by a 40-yard touchdown run by Kenneth Farrow. The Cougars kept the ball on the ground for five of the six plays on the possession, compiling 82 yards rushing on the scoring drive. The rushing score was just the sixth RU allowed this season. The Cougars tied the game

SECTION IV: 2013 SEASON REVIEW with 46 seconds remaining in the first quarter following an interception of Nova by Houston’s Trevon Stewart. O’Korn took advantage of the RU turnover, going 4-for-5 for 37 yards and a touchdown pass to tie the game at 7-7. After the RU defense halted the Cougars deep in their own territory, the Scarlet Knights offense took it 45 yards on five plays to take a 7-0 game with 3:15 left in the first. A 20yard rush by Goodwin set RU up in the red zone, before the Madison product took it five yards for the score. The touchdown was Goodwin’s third of the season, as he finished the first quarter with 69 yards on 11 attempts.

Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013 • High Point Solutions Stadium • Piscataway, N.J. • 46,447

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (Nov. 2, 2013) – The Rutgers defense halted Temple on fourth-and-1 with 1:50 remaining and junior quarterback Gary Nova (Elmwood Park, N.J.) responded, finding single coverage on sophomore wideout Leonte Carroo (Edison, N.J.) on a fourth-and-10 from the 33-yard line to complete a comeback win at High Point Solutions Stadium. Nova went 5-for-7 for 72 yards on RU’s game-winning drive, capped by Carroo’s second touchdown of the game with 35 seconds left in regulation to seal the victory. The Don Bosco products spearheaded the offensive attack in the win, as Nova was 27-for-38 with 371 yards and three touchdowns and Carroo hauled in seven catches for 147 yards and two scores. “It’s an all or nothing play in terms of, yes, you either make the first down or the game is over,” said head coach Kyle Flood of the game-winning touchdown. “But it’s not just an all-or-nothing play to Leonte; it just so happens he has had the one-on-one and we feel like he’s going to win, and he has had separation in all three of those cases where he’s caught it. Fortunate for us we can put him out there.” The RU defense made the comeback possible, bearing down to stop a 7:04-minute Temple drive and return possession to the offense. The Scarlet Knights faced a must2 014 R U TG E RS FOOTBA L L M E DI A GUI DE

stop, fourth-and-1 opportunity with 1:50 left on the clock and came up big, as junior linebacker Kevin Snyder (Mechanicsburg, Pa.) and redshirt freshman linebacker Steve Longa (Saddle Brook, N.J.) combined for the fourth down stop. The turnover on downs was the first for Temple in the game and came in a big spot, allowing Nova to guide the offense down field for the game-winning score. “[We ran] an inside cross blitz that we run quite a bit, it’s not unusual, and in that situation you have to stop them or the game is over,” Flood said. “We had the safety up tighter, but those guys did a nice job of penetrating and making the tackle. “I thought Temple did a good job of running the ball in the fourth quarter. I thought we held them in check early in the game, but they did find a couple of runs in the fourth quarter, where they were moving it on us.” Temple got the ball back with 28 seconds left on the clock, but the RU defense closed it out, as redshirt freshman Ruhann Peele (Linden, N.J.) forced and recovered a Ryan Aldermann fumble to end the contest. It was Peele’s first career game in the secondary as he moved to cornerback earlier in the week in practice. Earlier in the quarter, Temple’s Kenneth Harper broke loose on a third-and-2 from the RU 25-yard line, taking it the rest of the way

SECTION IV: 2013 SEASON REVIEW for a touchdown and 20-16 Owls lead with 10:57 left on the clock. It was the longest rush of the game by either team, putting the pressure on RU to bounce back from a deficit. A fumble by freshman running back Justin Goodwin (Madison, N.J.) on the subsequent possession allowed the Owls to retain possession on their own 17-yard line with 8:54 left in the contest. Temple would take the next 7:04 minutes off the clock before the RU defense came up big on fourth-and-1 from the RU 28-yard line. After trailing 13-3 entering the halftime locker rooms, RU got to work fast to begin the second half, scoring 13 unanswered points to take their first lead of the game. A 34-yard touchdown grab by Carroo put the Scarlet Knights ahead, 16-13, with 14:03 left in the fourth quarter. Senior linebacker Jamal Merrell’s (Bear, Del.) second interception of the season set RU for the score, as one play was all Nova needed to get in the end zone and take the lead. Nova’s first touchdown pass was caught by junior fullback Michael Burton (Long Valley, N.J.) – the second touchdown reception of his career – with 10:37 remaining in the third quarter. The drive took just three plays and 1:12 minutes and made it a 13-9 game after a missed extra point. The Scarlet Knights’ only points of the first half came courtesy of a 30-yard field goal by sophomore Kyle Federico (Ponte Vedra, Fla.). The points made it a 6-3 game with 11:00 minutes left in the first quarter. Score by Qtr. Temple Record: (1-8, 0-5) Rutgers Record: (5-3, 2-2)

Saturday, Nov. 16, 2013 • High Point Solutions Stadium • Piscataway, N.J. • 40,870

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (Nov. 16, 2013) – Rutgers suffered a 52-17 defeat against conference opponent Cincinnati at High Point Solutions Stadium. “I’ve got to give credit to Coach Tuberville, his staff and his football team,” said head coach Kyle Flood. “We knew they had a good football team, and they out-executed us today. I think they did a great job.” The Bearcats jumped ahead 10-0 early behind Tony Miliano’s 36-yard field goal at the 11:15 mark and Brendan Kay’s 24-yard touchdown pass to Anthony McClung with 10:29 to go in the first quarter. Rutgers would respond with a forced fumble caused by Anthony Cioffi (Springfield, N.J.). It was Cioffi’s second forced fumble of the season. Cioffi also recorded a team-high nine tackles on the day. The Scarlet Knights took advantage of the good field position and entered the red zone behind a couple of Paul James (Glassboro, N.J.) runs. Junior quarterback Gary Nova (Elmwood Park, N.J.) then connected with junior receiver Brandon Coleman (Accokeek, Md.) for a 16-yard touchdown reception, which capped a seven-play, 50-yard drive for the Scarlet Knights and cut the Bearcats’ lead to three. Coleman’s touchdown reception was the 19th of his career and landed him second all time for career touchdown receptions at Rutgers. He trails Tim Brown for the all-time record by one score. Cincinnati responded quickly with a 66-yard touchdown pass to Anthony McClung. The scoring pass was only the third play of the drive and gave the Bearcats a 17-7 lead with 1:57 to go in the first. The Bearcats followed up the touchdown with a successful onside kick recovered by Max Morrison. Cincinnati would then orchestrate a four-play, 53-yard

drive capped off with a Shaq Washington touchdown pass to Chris Moore to give the Bearcats a 24-7 lead. From that point, Cincinnati would go on to outscore the Knight 28-10 en route to their eighth win of the season. Senior quarterback Chas Dodd (Lyman, S.C.) entered the game in the fourth quarter for Gary Nova. Dodd went 9-of-12 with 79 yards. Nova went 18-of-38 with 170 yards and a touch-

Pratt recorded a 84-yard catch-and-run in the third quarter, the longest play from scrimmage for the Scarlet Knights this season. Defensively, freshman linebacker Steve Longa (Saddle Brook, N.J.) led all players with 11 tackles to bring his season total to 104. Junior linebacker Kevin Snyder (Mechanicsburg, Pa.) and senior safety Jeremy Deering (Tampa, Fla.) had nine and eight stops, respectively. Rutgers jumped on the board first on its opening drive of the game with a 10-yard touchdown pass from holder J.T. Tartacoff (Skillman, N.J.) to tight end Tyler Kroft (Downingtown, Pa.) with the field goal personnel on fourth down. It was the second time RU had run that play to success this season, also converting at Louisville. The opening drive last 13 plays for 65 yards and took 4:51 off the clock. 2 014 R U TG E RS FOOTBA L L M E DI A GUI DE

However, the Huskies responded with an eight-play drive on their first possession to immediately even the game. Quarterback Casey Cochran found Dhameer Bradley for 18 yards on third down for the score. The Scarlet Knights then fumbled the ensuing kickoff and the Huskies’ offense cashed in with a 12-yard touchdown run by Max DeLorenzo to make it 14-7 in favor of the hosts. The score would stay locked there after both teams exchanged punts twice and RU started with the ball at its own 27 with 6:55 to go in the first half. The Scarlet Knights then engineered a 16-play drive that included two third and one fourth down conversion to bring the ball deep into UConn territory. The possession stalled, however, but kicker Kyle Federico (Ponte Vedra, Fla.) knocked through a 34-yard field attempt to make it 14-10 at intermission. The second half started promising for RU, as the defense forced two punts. Then with the offense backed up at its own 13 following a penalty, Dodd found Pratt for an 84-yard gain down the left side to position the ball at the three-yard line. Freshman running back Justin Goodwin (Madison, N.J.) took it the rest of the way for his fifth rushing score of the season,

That would be the last lead Rutgers would own, though, as the Huskies followed with an 80-yard drive that was capped by a one-yard rushing touchdown by DeLorenzo. UConn ended the scoring with a 12-play drive that spanned 4:53 to make it a two-possession game. That drive ended on a three-yard pass from Cochran to Brian Lemelle in the corner of the end zone.

Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013 • High Point Solutions Stadium • Piscataway, N.J. • 37,645

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (Dec. 7, 2013) – Two touchdown passes from senior quarterback Chas Dodd (Lyman, S.C.) and a pair of scoring rushes from sophomore back Paul James (Glassboro, N.J.) led Rutgers to a 31-6 win over USF at High Point Solutions Stadium. With the victory, the Scarlet Knights earned bowl eligibility for the eighth time in nine seasons, as Rutgers will take on Notre Dame in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium on Dec. 28. “It’s a really attractive matchup,” said head coach Kyle Flood. “It will certainly be an attractive matchup for their fan base and I think it will attractive to just the casual college sports fan that wants to see an event and to get an opportunity to go watch a football game in Yankee Stadium, one of the premiere venues in the world.” Redshirt senior Joe Behnke (West Windsor, N.J.) capped the game with a 20-yard field goal, the first collegiate action of his career. James scored his second touchdown of the contest at the 8:15 mark of the fourth quarter, posting his third multi-touchdown game of the season. The score gave Rutgers a 28-6 lead. The Glassboro product scampered in untouched from a yard out after setting the Scarlet Knights up for first and goal two plays earlier with a 13-yard run, which gave James his fourth 100-yard game of the season. The Bulls took the ball 58 yards on 11 plays in the final two minutes of the period to make it a 21-6 game at the half. The Scarlet Knights shut USF down in the opening portion of the game, allowing just 35 yards on the ground. The Bulls rushing to2 014 R U TG E RS FOOTBA L L M E DI A GUI DE

tal dropped to just 10 yards by the final buzzer. The RU offense recorded an impressive half, scoring 21 points for the third time this season. The Scarlet Knights are 3-0 in 2013 when scoring at least 21 points in the first half. Dodd was an efficient 12-of15 with two touchdowns in the first half, connecting with eight different Scarlet Knights. He finished the game 19-of-24 with 179 yards to go with his two TDs. Dodd and freshman running back Justin Goodwin (Madison, N.J.) combined to drive RU down the field midway through the second quarter, with Dodd finding junior fullback Michael Burton (Long Valley, N.J.) for a 2-yard touchdown pass

SECTION IV: 2013 SEASON REVIEW with 2:29 left in the second quarter. Goodwin carried the ball three times for 19 yards on the drive and finished with 46 in the game. Dodd added an eight-yard rush of his own before finding sophomore tight end Tyler Kroft (Downingtown, Pa.) for a 24-yard completion. That reception brought RU to the USF 2-yard line, allowing Dodd to find Burton for his third touchdown catch of the season and give Rutgers a 21-3 lead. Junior Gareef Glashen (Miami, Fla.) intercepted Bulls quarterback Mike White on the Bulls’ fourth possession of the game, as the RU offense took the ball to USF’s 1-yard line in the next three plays. However, a costly fumble by James gave USF possession with 1:21 left in the quarter. The Bulls used the momentum from the takeaway to go 73 yards in 13 plays and cut the RU lead to 14-3 with 8:54 remaining until halftime. Marvin Kloss kicked the 24-yarder, his 17th of the season, for the Bulls’ first points of the evening. USF converted 3-of-4 third down attempts on the drive while eating 7:27 minutes of clock. The Scarlet Knights scored the only points of the first quarter, using 5:53 seconds of clock time to take a 14-0 lead. With Rutgers holding onto a 7-0 lead with five minutes left in the quarter, the Bulls fumbled on their next possession to give the ball back on their own 24-yardline. Sophomore defensive lineman Darius Hamilton (West Paterson, N.J.) fell on the ball for his first career fumble recovery, setting RU up just outside the redzone. It was the Scarlet Knights’ ninth fumble recovery of the season. From there Dodd did the rest, tossing a 12-yard strike to freshman wideout Andre Patton (Wilmington, Del.) following a roughing the passer penalty on the Bulls. Patton’s TD grab, the first of his career on his third catch of the season, gave Rutgers a 14-0 lead with 4:10 left in the period. It was Dodd’s first touchdown pass since Dec. 30, 2011 in the Pinstripe Bowl. The Scarlet Knights struck first in the contest, putting together a nine-play, 46-yard drive capped by James’ eighth touchdown of the season. RU faced third down just once on the drive, gaining a trio of first downs to keep the drive alive and the clock moving. James rushed the ball six times for 26 yards on scoring march, finishing with a fiveyard touchdown scamper to give Rutgers a 7-0 lead with 5:41 remaining in the first quarter. Score by Qtr.

Saturday, Dec. 28, 2013 • Yankee Stadium • Bronx, N.Y. • 47,122 • New Era Pinstripe Bowl

BRONX, N.Y. (Dec. 28, 2013) – A 47-yard field goal by sophomore Kyle Federico (Ponte Vedra, Fla.) brought RU within three with less than nine minutes remaining, but 10 unanswered points by No. 25 Notre Dame iced the contest, as the Irish defeated Rutgers, 29-16, in the 2013 Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium. The Scarlet Knights end the season at 6-7. A Pinstripe Bowl record crowd of 47,122 watched a back-and-forth affair for the majority of the contest, with neither team leading by more than one possession until late in the fourth quarter. Senior quarterback Chas Dodd (Lyman, S.C.) ended the day 9-of-26 for 155 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions. Junior wide receiver Brandon Coleman (Accokeek, Md.) led RU in receiving with two catches for 65 yards and a touchdown, while junior running back Paul James (Glassboro, N.J.) logged 48 yards on 10 attempts. Coleman finished his career with 20 touchdown receptions. He moved into a share for the school record in touchdown receptions with Tim Brown. A three-yard Tarean Folston touchdown at the 3:38 mark run all but put the game out of reach, as the Scarlet Knights

gave the ball away on their next possession. The turnover allowed Kyle Brindza to kick his fifth field goal, making it a 29-16 game with 2:28 left. Notre Dame’s Austin Collinsworth came down with an interception in the end zone as time expired to seal the Irish win. A 47-yard field goal by Federico, one yard shy of his season long, brought RU within three points with 8:57 remaining in the fourth quarter. The drive was largely set up by another terrific return by true freshman Janarion Grant (Trilby, Fla.), who took the ball 44 yards to the Notre Dame 45-yard line. The Irish scored consecutive field goals to distance themselves from RU to begin the second half. Brindza made it a 19-13 game with his fourth field goal of the contest at the 12:46 mark of the fourth quarter. The Irish went 90 yards on 15 plays to set up the 25-yard field goal. Brindza kick a 26yard field goal earlier in the half to give the Irish a 16-13 lead with 6:03 left. The Irish kicker originally missed an attempt from 31 yards out, but a running into the kicker penalty gave him another shot. Both teams entered the halftime locker rooms tied, 1313. Federico tied the game at 13-13 with 8:35 left in

the second quarter after the Scarlet Knights used a 12-play, 63-yard drive that reached the Irish 1-yard line. Highlighting the drive was a 19-yard scramble by Dodd – a career-long – on third-and-10 from the Notre Dame 34-yard line to help setup the 18-yard field goal. An interception of Dodd by Notre Dame’s Kendall Moore set the Irish up for a 38-yard field goal attempt after the defense forced a three-andout. ND’s Kyle Brindza kicked the ball dead center through the uprights, making it 13-10 with 12:59 left in the first half. Two big throws and catches from Dodd to Coleman tied things up at 10-10 in the latter part of the first quarter. On the second play of the drive, Dodd hooked up with a fading Coleman for a 51-yard gain up the right sideline. Three plays later Dodd went back to Coleman for a 14-yard strike, his fourth of the season. The receiving touchdown tied Coleman with Tim Brown for the most career receiving touchdowns (20) in school history. Notre Dame went ahead 10-3 following a Scarlet Knight field goal, as the Irish put together a seven-play, 62-yard drive capped by an 8-yard TJ Jones touchdown. RU went three-and-out on its first offensive possession of the game, but tied things up at 3-3 midway through the first quarter after a heads up play from junior Quentin Gause (Rochester, N.Y.). Forced to punt on fourth-and-12, senior Nick Marsh (Petaluma, Calif.), booted the ball to Notre Dame’s TJ Jones, who fumbled the ball on the return. Gause immediately fell on the ball to give RU possession on the Notre Dame 21-yard line, setting up a 36-yard field goal by Federico four plays later to tie things at 3-3 with 8:00 minutes remaining in the first quarter. The Irish struck first in the contest, as Brindza connected on a 21-yard field goal to give Notre Dame a 3-0 lead with 10:05 remaining in the first quarter. Score by Qtr.

PRESIDENT

OF THE UNIVERSITY

R

obert Barchi

is the 20th president of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, a 65,000-student comprehensive research institution.

Appointed in 2012, President Barchi is leading Rutgers at one of the most exciting moments of its nearly 250-year history. He has overseen formation of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, a major division of the university established in 2013 when, through restructuring legislation signed by Governor Chris Christie, most units of the former University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey were integrated into Rutgers. President Barchi has led development of an ambitious universitywide strategic plan, the first at Rutgers in nearly 20 years, and a corresponding physical master plan. He announced Rutgers’ entry into the Big Ten Athletic Conference, a group of similarly sized leading research institutions, and the conference’s academic consortium, the Committee on Institutional Cooperation. And, after helping advo2 014 R U TG E RS FOOTBA L L M E DI A GUI DE

cate for passage of a statewide bond referendum for higher education construction, Dr. Barchi has overseen the groundbreaking for nearly $800 million in capital projects, including the first new academic facility built on the historic College Avenue Campus since the 1960s. From 2004 to 2012, Dr. Barchi served as president of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, nationally regarded as a top university dedicated to health sciences education and research. Prior to Jefferson, he was provost and chief academic officer of the University of Pennsylvania, an Ivy League institution founded in 1740. There, he had responsibility for Penn’s 12 schools, all academic programs, athletics, students, and faculty. Dr. Barchi was born in Philadelphia but spent his formative years not far from Rutgers in Westfield, N.J. He received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from Georgetown University, and Ph.D. and M.D. degrees from the University of Pennsylvania. He completed specialty training at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and holds board certification in neurology. Throughout his career, Dr. Barchi has

SECTION V: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY

ROBERT BARCHI PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSITY been active as a teacher and as an NIH-funded researcher in the fields of neuroscience and neurology, and he has published extensively in his field. He was elected to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences in recognition of his pioneering research on the structure and function of voltage-gated ion channels in nerve and muscle, and on the role these critical molecules can play in human disease. He was also elected to the American Society for Clinical Investigation and the Association of American Physicians and named a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Neurological Association, and the American Academy of Neurology.

percent and annual degrees awarded rose by 54 percent. Dr. Barchi also expanded the reach of the campus, inaugurating the Partnership in Healthcare Education, an academic affiliation with the University of Delaware that offers dual-degree programs between the two institutions.

In 1972, Dr. Barchi began his academic career as a faculty member at Penn. Within a decade, he rose to become the David Mahoney Professor of Neurological Sciences. Between 1983 and 1996, he served as director of the Mahoney Institute of Neurological Sciences—an interdisciplinary, universitywide entity that he expanded to become the focus for Penn’s growth in neuroscience, encompassing the intellectual activities of more than 120 faculty members. Dr. Barchi founded the Department of Neuroscience at Penn and served as its first chair; he also served as chair of the Department of Neurology. He was named the Fairhill Professor in 2002, a position that he still holds in emeritus status.

During his presidency, Dr. Barchi also oversaw the transformation of Jefferson’s urban environment into a vibrant university campus. A coordinated construction program, coupled with improved landscape design and signage, helped provide visitors and the Jefferson community a sense of place and connectedness to the compact urban campus in the heart of the city’s historic district.

Other accomplishments at Jefferson include successful implementation of an ambitious strategic plan that integrated the university’s clinical, education, and research missions; a comprehensive facilities master plan that supports those missions; and a major fundraising campaign that provides the resources necessary for success. During Dr. Barchi’s tenure, Jefferson established 22 new endowed professorships and 50 endowed scholarships, helping to ensure a healthy and diverse community of faculty and students. The university surpassed $300 million in fundraising under his leadership, twice the amount raised during the preceding eight-year period.

The University of Pennsylvania named Dr. Barchi as its provost and chief academic officer in 1999, and he served in this capacity until 2004. As provost, Dr. Barchi had responsibility for the university’s 12 schools and their academic programs and budgets and Penn’s intercollegiate athletics program, as well as for Penn’s students and faculty. During his tenure, he worked with president Judith Rodin to reassert the primacy of the academic mission in the direction of the university. He recruited new leadership to nine of the 12 schools at Penn and established a number of universitywide interdisciplinary educational and research institutes. He also led the university through a comprehensive strategic planning process. As president of Thomas Jefferson University, Dr. Barchi oversaw a period of tremendous growth. The university established three new schools—including the Jefferson School of Pharmacy, which graduated its first class in May 2012, and the Jefferson School of Population Health, the only school in the nation to offer a master’s degree in chronic care management.

DIRECTOR OF INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS

J

ulie Hermann

leads Rutgers Athletics in 2014 as Rutgers University became the 14th member of the Big Ten, the nation’s premier academic and athletic conference. Hermann came to Rutgers after serving over 15 years as the Executive Senior Associate Athletic Director at the University of Louisville.

At Louisville, Hermann served as the manager of 20 sports as the Louisville Cardinals built one of the nation’s highest performing athletic departments, including the 2013 NCAA Men’s Basketball National title, two NCAA Women’s Basketball National Championship games (2009 & 2013), one NCAA Men’s Soccer College Cup National Championship appearance (2010), two College World Series appearances 2 014 R U TG E RS FOOTBA L L M E DI A GUI DE

(2007 & 2013) and two BCS bowl victories in the 2007 Orange Bowl and 2013 Sugar Bowl. The Cardinals won 64 Big East championships and titles since joining the league in 2005. While overseeing marketing, development, academics, sports performance, sports medicine, championships, student development (including the Derek Smith Leadership Academy), Hermann cultivated support for many of the state-of-the-art athletics venues that allowed the Cardinals to enjoy one of the nation’s biggest and best building booms in college sports. The Cardinals built over $250 million worth of facilities on campus as part of a strategic plan that allowed them to move into the Big East Conference in 2005 and to be selected again for expansion in 2012 by the Atlantic Coast Conference.

JULIE HERMANN DIRECTOR OF INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS The expansion of Papa John’s Cardinal Football Stadium, the Jim Patterson Baseball Stadium, the Trager Center, the Lacrosse Stadium, the YUM! Practice Center, the Ralph Wright Natatorium, the Marshall Center, the G. Garvin Brown Rowing Center, the Mark and Cindy Lynn Soccer Stadium, the downtown KFC YUM! Arena and Cardinal Park - which houses Ulmer Stadium (softball), Trager Stadium (field hockey) and the track and field complex - have allowed the Cardinals to lead the nation in hosting conference and NCAA championship events including six National Championships. Following a nationally competitive search, Hermann was selected from a pool of 63 candidates as Director of Intercollegiate Athletics at Rutgers University. She is the first woman to serve in this capacity at Rutgers and only the second woman to be an athletic director in the history of the Big Ten Conference.

Before her time as an administrator at Louisville, Hermann was a college and USA Volleyball coach. As an assistant with USA Volleyball, Hermann supported the National Team as they prepared for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games and coached a silver medal finish at the World University Games in Catania, Italy in 1997. Prior to USA Volleyball, Hermann was the head volleyball coach at the University of Tennessee from 1991 to 1997. Under her watch the Lady Vols improved over a 150 spots in the NCAA RPI from No. 177 to No. 25, and in just her third season returned the Lady Vols to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in over a decade. After her All-Big Eight volleyball playing career at the University of Nebraska and NCAA top-five finishes, Hermann became an assistant coach at the University of Georgia and the University of Wyoming. Hermann’s skills as a coach and a recruiter lifted those programs to unprecedented national rankings and advancement in the NCAA Tournament. Hermann and her partner, Dr. Leslie Danehy, are the proud parents of son, Aidan.

A former all-conference performer for the renowned Nebraska Volleyball program, Hermann is a tireless advocate for the student-athlete experience. At Louisville, she designed and created a best in class student-athlete support system called LCARE. Within her first year, Rutgers Athletics has implemented the RCARE system, dedicated to providing a comprehensive care system for all Scarlet Knights. Hermann has served on numerous community boards including the Frazier Rehab Institute, the Louisville Sports Commission, the Center for Women and Families, Women 4 Women and many NCAA and conference committees, including chairing the NCAA Division I Women’s Volleyball Committee. Hermann just completed seven years of service on the board of NACWAA, serving a four-year term before being on the executive board and becoming president. Hermann has been the recipient of many community awards including the 2013 selection as a Lenny Lyles Award winner, the 2004 Ladies of Leadership award, the 2006 Women 4 Women Heart of the Community award, the 2008 Mary Kay Tachau Gender Equity award, a 2008 Woman of Distinction by the Center for Women and Families, a Today’s Woman Honoree and the 2013 National Girls and Women in Sports honoree.

THE FIRST FOOTBALL GAME

R

utgers & Princeton

played the first game of intercollegiate football on Nov. 6, 1869, on a plot of ground where the present-day College Avenue Gymnasium now stands in New Brunswick, N.J. Rutgers won that first game, 6-4. The game was played with two teams of 25 men each under rugby-like rules, but like modern football, it was “replete with surprise, strategy, prodigies of determination and physical prowess,” to use the words of one of the Rutgers players. At 3 p.m. on that memorable afternoon, the 50 competitors and about 100 spectators gathered on the field. To distinguish themselves from the bareheaded visitors, 50 Rutgers students, including players, donned scarlet-colored scarves which they converted into turbans. Events leading up to the game were described by John W. Herbert (Rutgers c/o 1872), who was one of the players: “To appreciate this game to the fullest you must know something of its background,” Herbert wrote in 1933. “The two colleges were, and still are, of course, about 20 miles apart. The rivalry between them was intense. For years each had striven for possession of an old Revolutionary cannon, making night forays and lugging it back and forth time and again. Not long before the first football game, the canny Princetonians had settled this competition in their own favor by ignominiously sinking the gun in several feet of concrete. In addition to this, I regret to report, Princeton had beaten Rutgers in baseball by the harrowing score of 40-2. Rutgers longed for a chance to square things.” A challenge for the game was issued by Rutgers. Three games were to be played that year. The first, played at New Brunswick, was won by Rutgers. Princeton won the second game, but cries of “overemphasis” prevented the third game in football’s first year when faculties of both institutions pro2 014 R U TG E RS FOOTBA L L M E DI A GUI DE

tested on the grounds that the games were interfering with student studies. An analytical account of the game appeared in the November, 1869 issue of the Targum, Rutgers’ undergraduate newspaper. “To describe the varying fortunes of the match, game by game, would be a waste of labor for every game was like the one before,” wrote the student reporter. “There was the same headlong running, wild shouting, and frantic kicking. “To sum up, Princeton had the most muscle, but didn’t kick very well, and wanted organization. They evidently don’t like to kick the ball on the ground. Our men, on the other hand, though comparatively weak, ran well, and kicked well throughout. But their great point was the organization, for which great praise is due to the captain. The right men were always in the right place.” One of the Princeton players, William Preston Lane, in 1933 contended in a newspaper interview that Rutgers “ran us Princeton men out of town. I never found out why they did that,” he related. “But we don’t ask any questions. When we saw them coming after us, we ran to the outskirts of New Brunswick and got into our carriages and wagons and went away as fast as we could.” Lane’s contention is refuted in the Targum account. “After the match the players had an amicable “feed together,” the paper reported. “At 8 o’clock our guests went home, in high good spirits, thirsting to beat us next time, if they can.” Regardless of what actually happened after the first game, football was here to stay. Rutgers got Columbia University started in the grid sport the following season and in a few years most of the colleges and universities in the East were represented on the gridiron.

SECTION VII: HISTORY & TRADITION THE BIRTHPLACE OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL

The following is an excerpt from an article that was written by John Bruns, former long-time sports writer for the Home News, and the Easton Times-Express.

W

hen Rutgers defeated Princeton in

the first intercollegiate football game ever‌ played in 1869, the setting was quite different than it is today. The game was contested on a field along College Avenue in New Brunswick. There weren’t tens of thousands of cheering fans in a multi-million dollar stadium. There was no manicured grass field or electronic scoreboard. There was no elaborate athletic equipment or television cameras. But on that fall day in 1869, those students established a tradition of quality football programs, competitiveness and school spirit that continues at Rutgers, the birthplace of intercollegiate football. On October 1, 1994, Rutgers celebrated that first team and all the teams that followed, as the 1994 squad played only its third game in the spectacular new Rutgers Stadium, hosting perennial national power Miami. The game also continued 125 years of historical moments, outstanding athletes and memorable triumphs. However, those historic moments were difficult to predict during the early years when intercollegiate football scheduling was inconsistent. For example, Rutgers won six of 10 games in 1882, but played only one game in 1885. Similarly, the Scarlet Knights went 8-6 in 1891, but two years later played only four games. By the early 1900s, scheduling RUTGERS SCARLET KNIGHTS • WWW.SCARLETKNIGHTS.COM

had become more consistent and football became more popular across the country. The eight wins of 1891 weren’t matched until Rutgers went 8-1 in 1947 with one of the most successful teams of coach Harvey Harman in the Golden Era immediately following World War II. That team, quarterbacked by Frank Burns, who would later become Rutgers’ most successful coach, lost its opener to Columbia and then swept through eightstraight opponents. In 1913, coach George Foster Sanford began a tradition of success among Rutgers coaches in their inaugural year by leading his team to a 6-3 mark. He then flirted with two perfect seasons, improving the team to 7-1 in 1915 and 7-1-1 in 1917. Those two seasons, which featured All-American Paul Robeson, were among Rutgers’ best. The Scarlet Knights outscored opponents by an average of 44-3 in 1915 and 33-2 in 1917. Sanford, a member of Rutgers’ Hall of Fame, also helped to introduce Rutgers to the New York metropolitan area, playing games at the Polo Grounds against teams like Notre Dame, Nebraska, Louisiana State and West Virginia. A few years later, in 1924, two-time All-American end and fullback Homer Hazel helped coach John Wallace continue the tradition of firstyear coaching success, as Rutgers posted a 7-1-1 mark. Harvey Harman also had a successful first season, going 7-1 in 1938, the year Rutgers dedicated the original Rutgers Stadium. Rutgers won the dedication game, 20-18, over Princeton.

RUTGERS FOOTBALL INAUGURAL Harman, however, was replaced by former coach Harry Rockafeller during World War II. His tenure included an 8-1 season in 1947 when Rutgers, dominated by WWII veterans, registered a combined record of 27-7 from 1945-48. When John Stiegman coached Rutgers from 195659, he brought back the single-wing formation to the Scarlet Knight offense, and led Rutgers to an 8-1 mark in 1958. The only loss of that season, 13-12 to the Quantico Marines, came when All-American tailback Billy Austin had to miss a game due to a broken hand. Another first-year coach got off to an impressive start when John Bateman went 8-1 in 1960. That campaign was followed by Rutgers’ first undefeated season in 1961, when the team went 9-0, capping the season with a fourth-quarter, 25-point comeback win over Columbia. That team included All-American center Alex Kroll, and was ranked 15th nationally. In his 11 seasons, Bateman led Rutgers to 73 wins in 124 games. In 1973, Frank Burns took the reins of Rutgers football and became the most successful Rutgers coach ever by building teams recognized for fundamentals and defense. Burns himself was also known as a fierce linebacker and won the Most Valuable Player Award in the 1949 College All-Star game, when he made 17 tackles against the New York Giants. The Burns defenses were led by linebackers Ed Steward, Jim Hughes, Jim Dumont and defensive end Nate Toran. Burns’ first team went 6-5, while running back “JJ” Jennings set singleseason records for rushing yardage (1,353) and touchdowns (21). Over the next five seasons, Burns’ teams won at least seven games each season, including a fiveseason stretch from 1975-79 when Rutgers’ winning percentage was .803 with a record of 45-11. The jewel in the crown of Burns’ tenure as Rutgers’ coach was the 1976 season, when the team was perfect at 11-0, establishing the best season ever at Rutgers. During Burns’ 11 seasons at Rutgers, the Scarlet Knights won nearly two-thirds of their games (78-44). He also took Rutgers to its first bowl appearance – the Garden State Bowl – at Giants Stadium against Arizona State in 1978. Doubtless, the biggest win of the Burns era was the 13-7 upset of Tennessee on November 3, 1979 at Knoxville. Burns called it “the greatest of my coaching career.” The following year, 1980, Rutgers had one of its great “near-misses” of its long history when the Scarlet bowed, 17-13, to a highly-favored Alabama team coached by Bear Bryant at Giants Stadium. The gracious Bryant said, “We didn’t beat Rutgers. All I can say is we won.”

In 1984 when Dick Anderson was named head coach, a renewed commitment to football at Rutgers was backed by a $3 million state-funded package. Those funds helped finance the artificial surface practice fields, the practice “Bubble” and the Hale Center, which includes locker rooms, offices, a weight-training area and medical facilities for the football team. Anderson won seven of 10 games in his inaugural season. Other highlights of his years at Rutgers include upset wins over such nationally-ranked teams as Penn State and Michigan State, and a nationally-televised victory over Northwestern in the program’s 1,000th game. Anderson’s teams produced some of the most exciting players in Rutgers history, including record-breaking passer Scott Erney, career tackles leader Tyronne Stowe and career kickoff return leader Eric Young. Anderson’s last game at Rutgers, although a loss to Pittsburgh, was a memorable one. It was the 1989 Emerald Isle Classic in Dublin, Ireland, the first time a Rutgers team played overseas. Doug Graber became the Scarlet Knights’ 23rd coach in 1990 and placed an emphasis on recruiting the best talent in the state of New Jersey. His first recruiting class included three first-team AllState selections and two second-team All-State selections among the 12 recruits from New Jersey. Another major boost for Rutgers came in 1991 when Rutgers joined the BIG EAST Football Conference. The team went 13-9 in its first two years in the BIG EAST, including a 4-2 BIG EAST mark in 1992, before slipping to 4-7 the following season. The 1994 season celebrated not only the 125 years of college football, but also the return of the newlyrenovated and expanded Rutgers Stadium. The return was a welcome one. Rutgers teams have been at their best at the stadium, compiling a 174-57-4 record here. A new stadium has been quite a different setting than that of the first college football game played 130 years ago. The Scarlet Knights are playing for their own place in history as they continue the college football tradition that was born “On the Banks of the Old Raritan.” After a less than stellar run through the mid-1990’s under 1998 BIG EAST Coach of the Year Terry Shea, the Scarlet Knights opted to take the program in a different direction in 2001. On December 1, 2000, Director of Athletics Bob Mulcahy introduced the newest coach in the storied history of Rutgers Football - Greg Schiano. Schiano’s first three recruiting classes are considered the best in Rutgers history. In 2003, the team compiled a 5-7 record, upsetting Syracuse 24-7 in the season finale. In 2004, before the largest crowd ever at Rutgers Stadium, the Scarlet Knights defeated Michigan State 19-14.

SECTION VII: HISTORY & TRADITION In 2005, Schiano coached Rutgers to its best record in over a decade, 7-5, and its first bowl bid since 1978. In a Wild West shootout staged at Phoenix’s Chase Field, Rutgers fell just short, losing to Arizona State (7-5), 45-40, at the Insight Bowl Dec. 27. In 2006 Schiano was named the National Coach of the Year and BIG EAST Coach of the Year, as the Scarlet Knights earned their first national top-10 ranking in 2006 and won 11 games for the second time in school history. Brian Leonard was also the recipient of the Draddy Trophy in 2006. Rutgers ended the season with a ranking of No. 12 in the national polls. The success Rutgers achieved on the field was something Schiano envisioned from the first day he became the leader of the Scarlet Knights. At his introductory press conference, Schiano stated, “We’re going to win at Rutgers and we’re going to do it the right way.” The 2006 season was complete with a convincing 3710 victory over Kansas State in the Texas Bowl, the first bowl championship in school history. The 2008 campaign for the Scarlet Knights started slowly, but the program relied on a strong foundation built by Schiano and together as a family Rutgers turned a 1-5 start into seven consecutive victories to close out the season – culminating in a 29-23 victory over NC State in the PapaJohns.com Bowl. In 2009, the Scarlet Knights saw a number of milestones set, as well as the emergence of a new era with several talented true freshmen getting their feet wet in the college ranks. Rutgers went 9-4, including a 45-24 victory over UCF in the St. Petersburg Bowl. Prior to Schiano’s arrival at Rutgers, the Scarlet Knights had never fielded a receiver who had gained 1,000 yards in a season. In 2009, Tim Brown became the fourth during his tenure to eclipse the mark. Brown also became the school’s all-time leader in receiving touchdowns, passing RU’s only first round draft pick Kenny Britt. While the results on the field did not favor Rutgers in 2010, the world was introduced to Eric LeGrand. The junior defensive tackle suffered a spinal cord injury versus Army at MetLife Stadium Oct. 16 against Army, but he did not let the condition bring him down. LeGrand has become a public figure and has raised countless dollars towards spinal cord research. He became the first Scarlet Knight in the 144 years of the football program to have his number retired during halftime of the Sept. 14, 2013 game against Eastern Michigan. Rutgers returned to a bowl game in 2011 with a trip to the New Era Pinstripe Bowl. It was the second game of the season at Yankee Stadium. The Scarlet Knights defeated Army during the regular season before beating Iowa State in the bowl game. Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu set the school record with RUTGERS SCARLET KNIGHTS • WWW.SCARLETKNIGHTS.COM

115 receptions on the season and was drafted in the third round by the Cincinnati Bengals in the NFL Draft. Following the season, head coach Greg Schiano took the head coaching job with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to end an 11-year tenure. Kyle Flood was promoted from the staff to the lead position several days later. Flood made an immediate impact on the Rutgers program, as he led the school to its first BIG EAST Championship in 2012, ending with a 9-4 record and 5-2 in the league. Flood ended the season being named the BIG EAST Coach of the Year, an honor he shared with Louisville’s Charlie Strong. Flood’s nine regular season victories were the most by any first-year coach in Rutgers history, as eight players garnered All-BIG EAST honors. Khaseem Greene totaled 136 tackles to earn BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Year for the second consecutive season, in addition to All-America status. The defensive unit was among the best in school history, ranking fourth nationally in scoring defense, tied for ninth in turnovers gained and 10th in total defense. Offensively, wide receiver Brandon Coleman established himself as one of the nation’s premier deep threats by scoring 10 touchdowns during the season, tied for the most in school history. Quarterback Gary Nova started all 12 games, highlighted by a 397-yard, five-touchdown performance in a win at SEC opponent Arkansas. The year culminated with a trip to the Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando to face Virginia Tech. However, the Scarlet Knights fell 13-10 in overtime. In the offseason, Rutgers had 12 players signed by NFL teams, with a school-record seven selected in the NFL Draft. Rutgers came out of the gates in 2013 with a 4-1 start through September. Following a 52-51 loss in overtime at Fresno State, RU rattled off four straight wins. The winning streak was highlighted by a comeback win over Arkansas in the first visit by an SEC team to High Point Solutions Stadium. In its first American Athletic Conference game, Rutgers won in triple overtime at SMU. Other conference victories included a late fourth quarter win with the hurry-up offense versus Temple and a postseasonclinching performance on Senior Night against USF. Running back Paul James and tight end Tyler Kroft earned first-team all-conference, while center Betim Bujari and kick returner Janarion Grant made second team. The 2013 New Era Pinstripe Bowl was the eighth bowl trip in nine years for Rutgers. The Scarlet Knights took on a ranked Notre Dame team inside a soldout Yankee Stadium. On July 1, 2014, Rutgers officially joined the Big Ten Conference to usher in a new era in their deep and storied history.

played four years for the famous coach, George Foster Sanford. Rutgers had a 22-6-3 record in that time. In 31 games, Rutgers scored 941 points to opponents’ 191. Robeson was a powerful contributor to that record. Robeson was a two-time All-America end. Frank Menke named him All-America in 1917 and 1918. Walter Camp picked him in 1918. (Camp did not name an All-America team in 1917.) Following college, Robeson played three years as a pro - 1920 with Hammond, 1921 with Akron and 1922 with Milwaukee - in the American Professional Football League. He obtained his law degree in 1923. At Rutgers, Robeson was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and was valedictorian of the class of 1919. He won the college oratorical contest four straight years and

Kroll followed end Paul Robeson, halfback Homer Hazel and coaches George Foster Sanford and Harvey Harman into this most cherished of college football’s honors. Kroll, a 6-2, 228-pound center and linebacker, was a major force in Rutgers compiling a 17-1 record in his two years of play “On the Banks.” In 1960, the Scarlet Knights under coach John Bateman were 8-1 and followed up with the school’s first undefeated campaign, going 9-0 in 1961. Team captain of the lauded 1961 squad, Kroll was a two-time first-team AllECAC choice and won first-team All-America honors

gave the commencement address at graduation. Robeson won 12 letters in four sports - four in football, three each in basketball and baseball, and two in track. He stood 6-3 in height and his weight was listed at 191 in early years, and at 215 his senior season. This man of many talents became an actor, singer and lecturer. He was on Broadway and in the movies. His rich basso made his signature song “Ol’ Man River” a classic. He starred in plays, such as “The Emperor Jones,” “Othello,” “Showboat,” as well as many others, in the U.S., Europe and Africa. In 1925 he made a recording that sold 55,000 copies in four months. In 1972 he received the Whitney Young Memorial Award. Ebony Magazine called him “one of the 10 most important black men in American history.” Paul Robeson was born April 9, 1898, in Princeton, N.J. His father, Rev. William Robeson, had escaped slavery in 1860 in North Carolina at age 15. His mother, Maria Bustill, was a teacher. When Paul was a high school senior, he won the statewide academic test and received a scholarship to Rutgers. In 1915 he was the third African-American to enter Rutgers and the first to play football. He died January 23, 1976. A true renaissance man, Robeson won 12 letters in four sports at Rutgers - four in football, three each in basketball and baseball, and two in track. After his tenure at Rutgers, he became an accomplished actor, singer and lecturer, and was commemorated on a U.S. postal stamp in 2004.

from the Associated Press, United Press International, Newspaper Enterprise Association, Look, and the American Football Coaches Association. Known as a “coach on the field,” he was credited with making the quarterback sneak an offensive weapon. Rutgers scored seven touchdowns with that play in 1961, with Kroll clearing the way into the end zone for the signal-caller. He was also a first-team All-East choice by the AP in 1961 and played in the North-South game and the Senior Bowl. In 1960, he was an honorable mention AllAmerican. Following his senior season, he was a second-round draft pick of the New York Titans, playing for one season in 1962. Kroll earned a BA in English Literature in 1962 and was a Henry Rutgers Scholar with a perfect grade point average in his major. He received a National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame Post-Graduate Scholarship in 1961. In 1986, he was awarded the Silver Anniversary Award from the National Collegiate Athletic Association for his collegiate achievements. Immediately following his last game with the Titans, he joined the workforce at Young & Rubicam, the world’s largest independent advertising agency, as a copywriter. After a succession of writing and supervisory jobs in the creative department, he was named executive vice president and worldwide creative director in 1970. He was named president and chief operating officer in 1982 and, four years later, Kroll became chairman of Young & Rubicam. He is retired but still serves as Chairman Emeritus of Young & Rubicam.

Few men loved the game with the fervor of Harvey Harman, a huge man with a grand smile and a fierce dedication to the sport. A former president of the American Football Coaches Association, Harman received that group’s Amos Alonzo Stagg Award, symbolic of outstanding service to the profession. It was not surprising that Harman achieved such acclaim, for he learned his football lessons from two of the game’s mentors - Glenn “Pop” Warner and Jock Sutherland while at Pittsburgh. Harman was a starting tackle for the Panthers before taking his first coaching assignment at Haverford. From there he moved on to Sewanee (the University of the South), Pennsylvania and Rutgers. It was at Rutgers that he had his greatest success, directing the Scarlet Knights to a 26-7-1 record before interrupting his career to serve in the U.S. Navy during World War II. Harman returned to Rutgers after the war and led the Scarlet Knights for another 10 seasons before accepting a position as Executive Director of the National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame, Inc. In that capacity, Harman became known as the goodwill ambassador for football, continuing to serve the game until his death in 1969. His career record lists a slate of 140-104-7.

He parted his dark hair down the middle, in the fashion of the day, and his deep-set eyes glowed with a competitive fire. Homer Hazel, Rutgers’ first Hall of Famer, was, without doubt, the most versatile player the Scarlet ever produced. A natural athlete, Hazel excelled in various sports and was most successful as a track and field star. His speed and quickness served him well, for he once recovered his own kickoff in the enemy end zone for a touchdown. Homer led Rutgers to identical 7-1-1 records in his final two seasons, earning All-America laurels in each. He was an end in 1923, when the only Scarlet loss was to West Virginia (27-7). He had Rutgers on the way to an unbeaten finish in 1924 - this time as a hard-hitting fullback - when Bucknell untracked the Scarlet in the final game of the season, 12-7. During the 1924 campaign, Homer Hazel established school records for most points after a touchdown and longest completed pass. He could do it all. Carrying 226 pounds over a 5-foot-11 frame, Homer lettered in football, basketball, baseball and track at Rutgers. He later served as Athletic Director, football and basketball coach at the University of Mississippi for more than five years. He was a golf pro for four years, and a labor relations manager for more than 20 years. Hazel won his first letter in football at Rutgers in 1916. He left school because of a lack of funds. Hazel worked at various jobs and, at age 28, played football again at Rutgers. Walter Camp named him All-America end in 1923, All-America fullback in 1924. Hazel was born June 2, 1895, and died February 3, 1968.

A graduate of Ohio Wesleyan, George Little opened his coaching career at the University of Cincinnati and produced a two-year record of 10-8-0 before moving up the road to Oxford, Ohio, home of the Miami Redskins, in 1916. There, Little brought the Redskins their first Conference Championship and a 7-0-1 mark. After service in World War I, Little returned to Miami and directed the Red and White to yet another league crown and a three-year post-war record of 20-3-1. He also coached the Miami basketball and track teams, claiming a conference crown in the latter sport. The 1922 and 1923 seasons found Little at Michigan under head coach Fielding Yost, the man he replaced in 1924. That year, Little’s Wolverines were 6-2. The next season, Little was in Wisconsin as the new Athletic Director and head coach of the Badgers, and he led his charges to a two-year mark of 11-3-2. His teams displayed imagination and strength on offense, a unique ruggedness on defense. Little wound up his collegiate career as the Athletic Director at Rutgers, and then served as executive secretary of the National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame.

At the entrance to Rutgers Stadium, inscribed upon a bronze plaque, is a tribute to George Sanford. It was financed and installed by his players, the men “...he inspired to deeds beyond themselves.” Undoubtedly, Sanford was an inspirational leader of men, a gentleman who excelled as both player and coach. Sanford played center on the 1891 and 1892 Yale teams which held each of of their 26 opponents scoreless. Though he was never chosen to an All-America team, a 1927 poll named him the all-time Yale center. Sanford began his coaching career at Columbia (1899-1901), called in to revive the football program which had been abandoned after the 1891 campaign. His 1899 team defeated Yale for the first time ever, and it was at Columbia that Sanford developed the famous “Flying Hurdle Play” which saw Harold Weekes catapulted over the scrimmage line. Moving to Rutgers (1913-23), Sanford had marked success as his club rolled to a 56-32-5 record. He was hailed as a “miracle worker” in 1917, after his Rutgers team beat the heavily-favored Newport Naval Reserve All-Stars, 14-0. Between his teams at Columbia and Rutgers, Sanford devoted his energy toward a successful insurance brokerage business.

ARIZONA STATE 34, RUTGERS 18 Dec. 29, 1978 • The Meadowlands • East Rutherford, N.J. • 33,402

1978 GARDEN STATE BOWL - East Rutherford, N.J. - In its first postseason action in program history, Rutgers faced Arizona State at Giants Stadium in the inaugural Garden State Bowl in 1978. The Scarlet Knights pulled ahead in the first half on a touchdown by David Dorn and field goal from Kennan Startzell to take a 10-0 lead. However, the Sun Devils closed the gap just before the end of the first half when Mark Malone found Bob Weathers in the end zone. In the third quarter, Arizona State claimed the lead with two Malone touchdown passes and in the final quarter added another score with a rushing TD to make the score 28-10. Ted Blackwell brought the Scarlet Knights to within 10 points with his five-yard rushing touchdown and successful two-point conversion. Rutgers had a final chance to take over the game when an offside kick came bouncing its way, but an offside flag on the kickoff erased the Scarlet Knights good fortune. Arizona State tacked on two touchdowns to secure the 34-18 victory.

RUTGERS 29, N.C. STATE 23 Dec. 29, 2008 • Legion Field • Birmingham, Ala. • 38,582 • MVP: Mike Teel

2008 PAPAJOHNS.COM BOWL - Birmingham, Ala. - Fitting that Rutgers would end the 2008 season with a come-from-behind win. After winning only one of their first six games, Mike Teel and the Scarlet Knights erased an 11-point second half deficit to defeat North Carolina State 29-23 in the PapaJohns. com Bowl. Leading the comeback -- as he did all season -- was Teel, who passed for 319 yards and two touchdowns, including a 42-yard scoring toss to Kenny Britt to give the Scarlet Knights (8-5) the lead for good in the fourth quarter. Teel’s pass to Britt with 8:30 to play proved to be the winning touchdown. Britt, a third-team All-American, made a juggling catch as he crossed the goal line and finished with six catches for 119 yards. Teel, a senior, was the game’s most valuable player. He ended his career on a seven-game winning streak after being booed at home when he was struggling earlier in the season. NC State (6-7) held a 17-6 halftime edge, led by quarterback Russell Wilson who was 11-for-23 for 186 yards and a score. But Wilson left the game with a strained knee late in the first half and did not return. The Scarlet Knights scored 10 consecutive points in the third quarter on a 31-yard field goal by San San Te and an 11-yard pass from Teel to Tiquan Underwood. Rutgers took a 19-17 lead with 13:31 to play on a 28-yard field by Te after a 10-play 70-yard drive. The

2011 NEW ERA PINSTRIPE BOWL - Bronx, N.Y. – Chas Dodd hit Brandon Coleman for an 86-yard touchdown pass late in the fourth quarter and Jawan Jamison ran for two scores to lead Rutgers over Iowa State 27-13 in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl on Dec. 30, 2011. The Scarlet Knights (9-4) ran their bowl winning streak to five and improved to 2-0 this season at Yankee Stadium, where they beat Army earlier in the season. Rutgers, which played in one bowl game before 2005, is 5-1 in the postseason since then. The Cyclones (6-7) finished the season on a three-game losing streak, their last win coming on Nov. 18 in Ames, Iowa, when they pulled off the biggest upset of the season against Oklahoma State. That night Jared Barnett threw for 376 yards. In this game, Steele Jantz relieved Barnett in the second quarter and helped pull the Cyclones within 20-13 in the fourth on Jeff Woody’s 20-yard touchdown run with 10:00 left. After an exchange of punts left Rutgers deep in its own end, Dodd went deep to Coleman. The 6-foot-6 redshirt freshman went over 5-7 cornerback Jeremy Reeves, then outran the corner to the end zone to make it 27-13

2012 RUSSELL ATHLETIC BOWL - Orlando, Fla. - Rutgers saw its 2012 season come to an end with a 13-10 overtime loss to Virginia Tech in the Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando on Dec. 28, 2012. The loss ended the Scarlet Knights’ bowl win streak at five, which had previously been the longest active streak in the nation. In the 15th meeting between the two squads, Rutgers held a 10-0 lead heading into the fourth quarter. The Scarlet Knights scored first on a ball that was snapped over Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas and recovered in the end zone by Rutgers LB Khaseem Greene on the opening drive. An RU field goal by Nick Borgese late in the opening quarter would be the final points until the last stanza. In the fourth, the Hokies were able to tie it up. In the first overtime possession, the Hokies settled for a 22-yard field goal to take a 13-10 lead. Rutgers had a possession to answer, but after going three-and-out, Borgese missed wide-right on a 42-yard field goal attempt to end the game. Rutgers finished the year 9-4 and earned a share of the school’s first BIG EAST Championship.

The Athletic Communications Office is located on the first floor press box of High Point Solutions Stadium. For information regarding credentials, interviews, statistics, press conferences, etc., please call the Athletic Communications Office at 732-445-7028, visit CollegePressBox.com or e-mail Baum at jbaum@scarletknights.com. To assist in your coverage throughout the year, please read the media information on this page. Briefly, all interviews must be arranged through the Athletic Communications Office at least one day in advance and all players, coaches and support staff will not take part in an interview unless scheduled by the Athletic Communications Office. MEDIA CREDENTIALS All media credential requests must be submitted via email to credentials@scarletknights.com. Admittance to the High Point Solutions Stadium Press Box is limited to working media members only. Credential requests must be made through Rutgers’ credentialing email. Please request credentials at least two weeks in advance of the game to permit sufficient time for mailing. Media credentials which cannot be mailed will be left at Media Will Call (Media Entrance) beneath the press box at High Point Solutions Stadium at Gate A.

PARKING Media parking is located in the Green Lot, which is located behind the Indoor Practice Bubble on the E Fields. To enter the Green Lot, take River Road to Sutphen Road. Once on Sutphen, make your first left at Fitch Road and attendants will direct you to the media lot. You should request your parking at the same time you request your game credential. If time permits, both will be mailed to you. There is no day-of-game media parking list and therefore members of the media must have a media parking credential in advance of the game. PRESS BOX SERVICES Complete NCAA statistics, play-by-play, and quote sheets from both teams are all regular services on gameday. Upon your arrival, you will receive a press folder with a game program, flip card, updated stats and game day notes. The press box has wireless Internet access.

J

ason Baum

is in his ninth year as a member of the Rutgers athletics department and enters his third year in his current position as Senior Associate Athletic Director/ Chief Communications Officer. As a member of the senior staff, Baum oversees the Office of Athletic Communications, the department’s official athletics website ScarletKnights.com, the online digital network of Rutgers Athletics (RVision) and all broadcast opportunities (television, radio and Internet) for the athletic department. He is the primary media contact for the Rutgers football program and the department’s primary spokesman. He is also the executive producer of the “RFootball Show” and the “15 Days of Spring” documentaries on the Rutgers football program. Since arriving at Rutgers, Baum has successfully promoted 17 student-athletes who earned football All-America honors, including Ray Rice, who finished seventh in the Heisman Trophy voting in 2006 and was a finalist for the Maxwell Award. In 2009, the Football Writers Association of America introduced its Super 11 Awards, designed to identify and reward the sports information departments and programs that exemplified excellent media relations. The Rutgers

Athletic Communications Office earned Super 11 accolades in 2009 and 2010. Two areas of development under Baum’s watch at Rutgers are the growth of RU’s social media outlets and RVision. Baum created the budget and vision for the network by saving on the cost of printed media guides and allowed all of Rutgers’ athletic teams to gain an increase in exposure. Rutgers was also the first school in the nation to broadcast its football Pro Day live on the Internet in 2010. Currently, RVision produces over 150 live events annually. Baum has served as the primary football media contact for two national coaches of the year – Greg Schiano at Rutgers in 2006 and George O’Leary at the University of Central Florida in 2005. Prior to Rutgers, Baum spent five years at UCF where he served as the primary contact for football and baseball along with men’s and women’s golf. Before arriving at UCF, Baum spent two years at the University of Maryland working with the football program along with baseball, volleyball and swimming and diving. The York, Pa., native got his start in Athletic Communications as a student assistant at West Virginia University. Baum is a member of the Football Writers Association of America and CoSIDA. A 2000 graduate of West Virginia, Baum and his wife Andrea reside in New Brunswick.
