Washington’s Stock Continues to Rise in Rutgers Loss

One of Washington’s 3 catches today

The Rutgers University football team fell to 0-2 on the season after this afternoon’s disappointing encore to their impressive showing vs. #8 Washington a week ago. The Eastern Michigan Eagles came to town with an 0-58 record vs. Power Five opponents and left Piscataway with a shocking 16-13 win.

Despite the loss, there were several bright spots for the Scarlet Knights, including the play of Jerome Washington ’12. The former Bear built on his six-catch performance vs. Washington, which earned him Offensive Player of the Game honors, by racking up the second most catches and receiving yards for Rutgers this afternoon. He also reeled in one of the catches of the game.

After the game, Washington was listed as one of four players with their “stock up” in the post-game recap by Keith Sargeant of NJ.com.

Jerome Washington, who was named Rutgers’ Offensive Player of the Game in Week 1 thanks to his team-leading six receptions, had three catches for 54 yards Saturday. The Miami transfer made a great over-the-shoulder grab in tight coverage for a 22-yard reception from Kyle Bolin midway through the first quarter. The redshirt junior also had the key play that set up Rutgers’ first touchdown, a 27-yard reception from Bolin that brought the Scarlet Knights to the 23-yard line.

Washington and Rutgers return to action next Saturday at home vs. Morgan State.
