PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Senior Gary Nova threw three of his four touchdown passes to high school teammate Leonte Carroo and became Rutgers' all-time career leader in touchdown passes in a 31-6 victory over Tulane on Saturday.
Nova hit Carroo on scoring passes of 3 and 25 yards on the Scarlet Knights' first two possessions, and added the third one late on a 6-yard toss in the fourth quarter. He combined with Andrew Turzilli on a 93-yard scoring pass as Rutgers jumped to a 21-0 lead on its first three drives.
The four TD passes gave Nova 61 in 38 games, two more than current graduate assistant coach Mike Teel.
Rutgers (4-1) is two wins shy of being eligible for a postseason bowl in its first season in the Big Ten Conference.
Sherman Badie scored on an 86-yard run for Tulane (1-4), which lost starting quarterback Tanner Lee to a shoulder injury before halftime.
