Rutgers special teams were the stars of the game today. With 3 FGs and some nice punts, special teams helped keep Rutgers in this game. The defense started out strong, but they were just overpowered in the 2nd half and BC kept pounding it - and they just kept doing it until they broke the Scarlet Knights' spirit. The offense was not bad today, but it became too predictable. They were not able to run the ball consistently. BC went into "bend, don't break" mode and let Rutgers move the ball in the middle of the field, but then tightened up inside their 30 and Rutgers had no answer.

Actually a good game today. Ill-advised INT late just exemplified the struggles
Bo Melton (18)
He needs to be a much bigger factor in the game for Rutgers to win.
Isaih Pacheco (1)
Some nice plays, but the Eagles really neutralized him today.
Justin Davidovicz (95)
Solid day. Rutgers has struggled to find consistency at PK in recent years, but he was solid today.
Matt Alaimo (10)
Not much of a factor even before getting hurt.
Raheem Blackshear (2)
Nice TD run. The star of the offense today.

Good game, but they were just worn down in the second half.
Special Teams Comments
Never good when special teams are the stars of the game! But both the Kicker and Punter had the best overall performances.

need to be more creative on offense. Just too predictable
