Marcus Cooper recovered a fumble on a punt return to set up a field goal and Jamal Merrell's interception led to Nova's TD pass to Harrison that put Rutgers ahead 13-6 midway through the third quarter. The Scarlet Knights clung to the lead heading into the fourth quarter, thanks to Wayne Warren's end zone interception that stopped a drive Daniels led to the 5-yard line.
"You don't ever stop B.J. Daniels. He made some spectacular plays today, some deep completions," Flood said. "He makes plays out of broken plays. He makes the plays he should. We were fortunate to hold that team to the points that we did. It was a great effort by our defense."
