Five things to watch during the ‘Spring Game’

On Saturday, Rutgers football gets set to host its annual spring Scarlet-White Game at SHI Stadium. After the conclusion of 14 spring practices, Rutgers football is ready to see one final evaluation before the 2023 season is underway.

For the last month, the Scarlet Knights have been installing a new system under offensive coordinator Kirk Ciarrocca while attempting to make strides on defense. Players’ jobs won’t be won or lost on Saturday, but the scrimmage will provide where the competition stands.

The quarterback competition between sophomore Gavin Wimsatt and junior Evan Simon will be a focal point on Saturday. In five games last season, Wimsatt threw for 757 yards, five touchdowns, and seven interceptions. Through nine games last season (two starts), Simon threw for 777 yards, four touchdowns, and six interceptions. The two quarterbacks have been evaluated throughout the spring and will face off against each other on Saturday.

The action begins at 3 p.m. with the Big Ten Network Connor Onion (play-by-play), Eric LeGrand (analyst), and Dom Savino (sideline) handling the broadcasting.

Here are the five things to watch:


Rutgers football: What recruits are scheduled to attend Saturday’s ‘Spring Game’?

Development of quarterback Gavin Wimsatt

Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano has yet to name the starting quarterback heading into the 2023 season, with Gavin Wimsatt and Evan Simon competing for the job. Wimsatt has shown signs of development throughout the spring, but can he perform in a game setting? With a young offense, Schiano is looking for Wimsatt to take ownership of the unit and make faster decisions. Schiano will look for Wimsatt to improve his decision-making and accuracy in his third season with Rutgers football.
