PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - Gary Nova was 6 of 13 for 78 yards while also rushing for a 1-yard touchdown, leading the White past Scarlet 21-0 in Rutgers' spring game on Saturday.
The one-time starting quarterback was benched late last season and is now in a three-man competition for the starting spot with junior Mike Bimonte (5-of-11 for 55 yards) and redshirt freshman Chris Laviano (0 of 3).
Despite a strong spring by Nova, the only quarterback on the roster with game experience, Rutgers will enter the summer without naming a starting quarterback. However, coach Kyle Flood says Nova has a significant edge.
Desmon Peoples took advantage of the absence of the top three running backs from last season, including Paul James (shoulder), and ran for 89 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries.
