Rutgers football improves in Chris Ash's second season

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) As defensive lineman Sebastian Joseph was having his final pregame meal in Rutgers' team hotel, the fifth-year senior couldn't help but look ahead and tell his younger teammates how lucky they are.

While the Scarlet Knights finished the season with a 4-8 record and a three-game losing streak, coach Chris Ash is showing progress in rebuilding a program that was left in disarray by his predecessor, Kyle Flood.

Rutgers won three Big Ten games this year after winning none the year before.
