PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - If there was a true start to quarterback Gary Nova's career at No. 20 Rutgers, it came last year against Syracuse.
The then-true freshman replaced Chas Dodd in the second half against the Orangemen and rallied the Scarlet Knights to a double-overtime victory.
Nova and Dodd split the quarterback job the remainder of last season but Nova has been the starter since Kyle Flood took over as coach this season and there can't be any complaining about the results.
Rutgers (5-0, 2-0 Big East) will try to improve to 6-0 for the third time since 1976 and become bowl eligible for the seventh time in eight seasons when it faces Syracuse (2-3, 1-0) at High Point Solutions Stadium on Saturday.
