Scarlet Knights mull QB situation; Arkansas awaits

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - It wasn't long ago that Chas Dodd was in a tight competition for Rutgers' starting quarterback position, ultimately being relegated to backup duties behind Gary Nova shortly before last season.

Now, with growing concern about Nova's availability from a concussion, Dodd is embracing a potential opportunity to start the Scarlet Knights' biggest game of the season Saturday when they host Arkansas at High Point Solutions Stadium.

Nova, who has rebounded from an uneven sophomore campaign through the Scarlet Knights' 2-1 start, practiced Tuesday morning in a limited role, according to coach Kyle Flood, who listed him as probable for the matchup against the 3-0 Razorbacks.
