PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- 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.
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.
