PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Rutgers has lost top cornerback Blessuan Austin for the season with a knee injury.
Coach Chris Ash announced Monday that Austin tore his anterior cruciate ligament in the second half of Saturday's 27-16 loss in Nebraska.
Ash called the injury a blow for the Scarlet Knights (1-3, 0-1 Big Ten). The junior had started in each of his three seasons. He earned honorable mention in the conference's awards after last season.
