BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -Mike Teel passed for 319 yards and Rutgers capped its comeback season with another rally, defeating North Carolina State 29-23 in the Papajohns.com Bowl Monday.
Teel threw a 42-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Britt with 8:30 to play for what proved to be the winning touchdown. Britt made a juggling catch as he crossed the goal line.
Britt, a third-team All-America, caught six passes for 119 yards, and Teel was the game's most valuable player.
The Scarlet Knights (8-5) began the season 1-5, but finished with a seven-game winning streak.
NC State (6-7) held a 17-6 halftime, led by quarterback Russell Wilson who was 11-for-23 for 186 yards and a score. But Wilson left the game with a strained knee late in the first half and did not return.
