Senior linebacker Steve Beauharnais chases down an Army ball carrier in the Knights’ 28-7 win last Saturday against the Black Knights. Beauharnais is fourth on the team with 58 tackles — four for a loss — and has one fumble recovery and half a sack in his fourth season as a starter.
The Knights offensive line has seen the same six players in all but one game this season, with senior Matt?McBride filling in for sophomore center Betim Bujari in the team’s home opener Sept. 8 against Howard. The unit faces a tall task this week in Cincinnati, which is second in the Big East with 23 sacks.
Sophomore wide receiver Brandon Coleman catches a game-winning 31-yard touchdown from classmate Gary Nova during the fourth quarter of the Knights’ 28-7 victory against Army. The combination route Coleman ran also resulted in touchdowns in two other games, as well as attempted scores in others.
Midfielder Amy Pietrangelo found the back of the net Saturday in Rutgers’ 1-0 victory against Colgate. Her goal in the 20th minute was her third of the season and her second game-winner. Rutgers plays Virginia on Friday in Charlottesville, Va., in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
Sophomore safety Lorenzo Waters, left, blitzes Kent State quarterback Spencer Keith on Oct. 27 in the Knights’ 35-23 loss. Waters could play an important position in run defense Saturday against Army, which brings the nation’s top rush offense to Piscataway.
