A pair of second-quarter passing touchdown from sophomore quarterback Gary Nova has helped the visiting Rutgers Scarlet Knights take a 14-10 lead over the Arkansas Razorbacks in a non-conference showdown that has reached the conclusion of the first half.
Rutgers' go-ahead score was a 19-yard reception by Brandon Coleman, who caught a nice lob pass from Nova in the end zone. Coleman's fourth touchdown of the season capped off a six-play, 60-yard drive that ended with just under two minutes to go in the half.
Running back Jawan Jamison has Rutgers' other touchdown reception, a 10-yarder that came during the first possession of the second quarter.
Arkansas tallied a field goal and touchdown in the first quarter. Wide receiver Cobi Hamilton scored the game's first touchdown as he caught a pass from quarterback Tyler Wilson and ran 57 yards into the end zone. Arkansas kicker Zach Hocker opened the scoring with a 37-yard field goal that polished off the game's opening drive.
Wilson has completed 9 of 17 passes for 158 yards and one touchdown, while Rutgers' Nova has about matched him tossing for 150 yards on 12 of 17.
