The Scarlet Knights edged Boston College in their season-opener, 22-21, and then blew out Wagner 66-7 in their first home outing.

They made it three-in-a-row a week later with a 16-14 victory at Temple, but their streak came to an end last Saturday as they lost 27-10 at home to Iowa.

QB Evan Simon is 55/89 for 566 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions.

Aron Cruickshank is the leading receiver with 156 yards and two touchdowns off 18 receptions.

This offense is built on the back of the run game though, with no less than five players having rushed for 100 yards so far this season.

Over on defense, Rutgers are top 15 in the nation in yards allowed per game (284.3) and top 30 in points allowed per game (20.7).

QB CJ Stroud is 79/112 for 1,222 yards, 16 touchdowns and just one interception.

Emeka Egbuka (442 yards, five touchdowns) and Marvin Harrison Jr (387 yards, five TDs) have been his two favorite targets in the passing game.
