Rutgers faces tough task in defending Navy's triple-option

Rutgers faces tough task in defending Navy's triple-option

PISCATAWAY – In the game of football, games aren’t won and lost on Saturdays. As much as the execution on game day affects the outcome, so does the preparation during the workweek.

“There are other things we'd like to be working on, but there is no way you prepare for this offense unless you do it in training camp in the spring and then weekly,” Schaino said. “to stay sharp, otherwise, there is no chance.”
