Games against overwhelmed opponents tend to be a good opportunity to rack up some stats, and that's exactly what the Rutgers defense did in its 48-0 win over North Carolina Central. The Scarlet Knights tallied nine sacks, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries. Rutgers scored a touchdown on both a fumble recovery and an interception.
If you saw this matchup and decided to play the Rutgers defense, good move. Tough to see this kind of performance happening again next week at North Carolina but this is a good step in the right direction for a unit that struggled last year.
