SCOUTING REPORT

Barrett outplayed starting quarterback Cardale Jones, putting the “Who should be the starting quarterback?” question into play again.

Scarlet Knights: Rutgers came from 25 points down late in the third quarter to beat Indiana 55-52 last Saturday on a field goal by Kyle Federico as time ran out. Quarterback Chris Laviano (1,388 yards, 12 touchdowns), running back Robert Martin (437 yards) and receiver Leonte Caroo lead the offense.
