Both sides of the ball are important in the trenches in Big Ten play. Rutgers gets a big body to stay home in Jones, who comes from Delran. In Schiano’s tenure, the offensive line has been an issue but it took a major step forward this season and was reliable all season long.

The Scarlet Knights will return Hollin Pierce and Bryan Felter next season. Schiano has shown that he likes to shuffle pieces along the offensive line, which means all hands on deck.
