Rutgers Vs. Tulane Final Score: Scarlet Knights Win Season Opener, 24-12

Rutgers (1-0) got off to a good start to the 2012 season with a 24-12 victory over Tulane (0-1) on Saturday night. After a scoreless first quarter, the Scarlet Knights got on the scoreboard early in the second with Jawan Jamison's 46-yard touchdown run. Rutgers and Tulane traded field goals before halftime to give the Knights a 10-3 advantage midway through.

It took both offenses a while to get going to start both halves, and the third quarter was scoreless like the first one was. Tulane chipped Rutgers' lead with a field goal in the fourth, but Brandon Jones picked off Tulane quarterback Ryan Griffin and took it back 14 yards for the touchdown.

Gary Nova connected with Brandon Coleman for a 43-yard touchdown pass and the Scarlet Knights took a 24-6 lead. Tulane scored a touchdown late, but Rutgers was already in control by then.
