Rutgers’ 2nd intrasquad scrimmage is in the books, and it was the defense that stole the show.
Kemoko Turay registered three sacks and the defense kept the offense out of the end zone for the first eight series as the Rutgers coaching staff divided the repetitions between quarterbacks Chris Laviano, Hayden Rettig and Giovanni Rescigno.
Laviano drew the opening first-team drive, but split the repetitions with Rettig for most of the scrimmage under sunny 73-degree conditions at High Point Solutions Stadium.
