NEW YORK — Mohamed Sanu set a Big East Conference single-season record for receptions and Jordan Thomas returned a blocked punt 32-yard for a touchdown as Rutgers defeated Army 27-12 Saturday in the first game between the schools since Scarlet Knights player Eric LeGrand was paralyzed in October 2010.
LeGrand took part in the coin toss before the game at Yankee Stadium along with Malcolm Brown, the player he tackled on his last college play.
Chas Dodd threw two touchdowns Rutgers (7-3), including a go-ahead 38-yard touchdown to Brandon Coleman on the opening possession of the second half.
Army (3-7) self-destructed for the second straight week. Alex Carlton missing a potential game-tying extra point in the fourth quarter and an apparent go-ahead 52-yard TD run was nullified by a penalty.
