Gary Nova Passes for 404 Yards as Rutgers Gets First Ever Big 10 Win
Nova found Andrew Turzilli on scoring passes of 80 and 14 yards and hit John Tsimis with a 7-yarder as the Scarlet Knights (5-1, 1-1) won their first Big Ten Conference game and sent Michigan (2-4, 0-1) to its third straight loss.
The 2-4 start is the worst for Michigan since it opened 2-7 in 2008 under Rich Rodriguez. The setback also capped a troublesome week for coach Brady Hoke, who was under the microscope for failing to remove sophomore quarterback Shane Morris last weekend after a hit to the head.
Michigan had a chance to win but a wind-aided 55-yard field goal by Matt Wile was blocked by Kemoke Turay with 3:01 to go.
