Too Easy Ray

PISCATAWAY, NJ -- Ray Rice isn't wasting any time for Rutgers.

He quickly became the school's all-time leading rusher on the first series of plays. Now, after scoring a TD, with 4:58 left in the 1st quarter, he moves into 5th place on the school's all-time rushing TD list with 29.

Navy safety Jeff Deliz is likely out for the game with a leg injury.

Rice's TD was from 4 yards out. He rushed right, redireted, bounced off the Navy line and found paydirt in the endzone. It was as pretty as a 4-yard rush could be.

The scoring drive was set up by an Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada interception by Rutgers' George Johnson. It was Johnson's first career pick.

Speaking of firsts, we've already seen Rutgers' Shamar Graves get his first career reception and TD, well Navy wide receiver Greg Sudderth, a senior, also made his first career reception right before the interception was thrown.

On the ensuing drive by Navy, ball movement got the Mids down to the 15 yard line of Rutgers where they went for it on 4th and 2 and ultimately made the first down to the seven on a QB run by Bryant.

Two plays later, Bryant connected with WR Reggie Campbell in the endzone for a 3-yard TD pass to make the score 14-7 Rutgers with 16 seconds remaining in the opening quarter.
