Rutgers QB Johnny Langan posts historically inept statline
It’s no secret that the Rutgers Scarlet Knights aren’t known for their football prowess. Still, what they managed to do Saturday is beyond the pale.
Rutgers lost 35-0 to Indiana on Saturday. They managed just 75 total yards and six first downs, but the most remarkable stat came from quarterback Johnny Langan. He completed just five passes for a grand total of one yard, a historically bad mark.
Rutgers quarterback Johnny Langan finishes the game 5/13 for 1 yard passing. This is the most completions for fewest yards since 2000. The next lowest total yardage for 5 completions was 46 yards.

How does that happen? Langan only completed two passes for positive yardage — a four-yarder and a three-yarder. His other three completions were for losses of three, two, and one yard. His final completion of the day came with 13:08 left in the second quarter.
The Scarlet Knights are now 1-5 and clearly going nowhere. They’re two weeks removed from firing head coach Chris Ash, and it’s no wonder that their most successful coach in recent memory has been linked with a return.
