Stadium hosts battle of Knights

Savon Huggins won’t play against the Black Knights.

In Saturday’s game against Army at Yankee Stadium, Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano will play without his prized recruit, freshman running back Savon Huggins.

In Saturday night’s comeback win over South Florida, Huggins suffered a knee injury and will miss the final three games of the season, though he could return for a bowl game.

“I mean, we’re going to miss Savon, for sure.  But that’s why you have a program. You have some depth and you keep playing,” Schiano said. “We’ve just got to make sure we’ve got plans if another guy goes down, how we’ll attack it and all those things.”

The 6-foot, 200-pound running back has yet to start a game, but he’s already beginning to make an impact in scarlet. Huggins, who’s second on the team in carries, has 146 rushing yards and has become a red-zone threat, leading the team with five touchdowns.
