The second year of Greg Schiano’s second stint at Rutgers is almost upon us.

The Scarlet Knights will start the 2021 season Thursday against Temple at SHI Stadium. Rutgers is coming off an up-and-down 3-6 campaign, but brings back almost everyone from that team.

Not all of them will be playing Week 1, though. Schiano said North Carolina transfer cornerback Patrice Rene won’t play against Temple due to an injury.

Schiano met the media Monday and discussed Rene’s injury, as well as the offensive line and how his team matches up with Temple.

Let’s look at what he had to say.
