Rutgers Shuts Out Howard, 26-0

Gary Nova threw two touchdown passes to Brandon Coleman and Rutgers’ swarming defense limited Howard to 149 total yards Saturday, giving Kyle Flood a 26-0 victory in his first home game as the Scarlet Knights’ coach.

Nova and Coleman combined on scoring passes of 32 and 16 yards as Rutgers got off to its second 2-0 start in three seasons.

Savon Huggins scored on a 1-yard run and cornerback Brandon Jones scored his second touchdown in as many games, jogging six yards with a blocked punt, one of two that led to touchdowns.

Howard (1-1) of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference had a chance to take an early lead after Julien David intercepted Nova on the opening series, and the Bison eventually got a first and goal at the 2 after a pass interference penalty.

William Parker, however, fumbled a third-down pitch and defensive tackle Scott Vallone recovered.
