Rutgers comes away with another victory against a subpar team where they were trailing by a good amount in the first quarter. Rutgers scored 31 unanswered points en route to a victory over the Lobos. While there was not as much dazzling plays this game as last week's, there was still a few worth sharing.

I will start with the initial score of the game. All Big Ten Baseball player, Jawuan Harris, got his first career touchdown last week against Howard. It did not take very long for him to get his second. This one was for 75 yards and put the Knights on the board after a very difficult first quarter until this point.

Then, it was Janarion Grant's turn, naturally. After a muffed punt return early in the game, Grant made up for it with two touchdowns on the day. They did not come in typical fashion, as you probably could have guessed, especially for a receiver. His first touchdown of the day came on a reverse play where he actually threw the ball on the run to Andre Patton. Patton went up and secured the catch for the Scarlet Knights' second score of the game, pulling them to within one score.

With his second score, Grant gets a good grip on this punt and does what he does. He returned the ball 69 yards for a touchdown which put the Knights on top 28-21 going into the half.

Before Grant had that clutch punt return, our backfield had a glorious moment, too. Robert Martin got the ball and took off right down the middle with it for 80 yards and a touchdown. This score tied the game at 21.

After going up 28-21 the Knights only scored field goals and held the Lobos to only one score. The Scarlet Knights won their second in a row and sit at 2-1 this season. Is Harris and Martin and, of course, Janarion, can keep this up all season, we have a chance of not only making a bowl game, but winning one as well.
