Madison High School grad Justin Goodwin's triple-overtime touchdown secured a 55-52 win for Rutgers over SMU Saturday, and he's expected to have more chances to shine this week.
The freshman running back rushed for 149 yards on the game, and had 73 yards receiving and three touchdowns.
It was the first significant action Goodwin saw in his college career, and he's due to play again Thursday at Louisville.
Coach Kyle Flood told The Star-Ledger he will start Savon Huggins, turn to Goodwin for the second drive, and use both players throughout Thursday's game.
At SMU, Goodwin secured the win "with a 17-yard touchdown scamper, breaking numerous tackles on the way," according to the Rutgers Athletics recap of the game. (You can see a clip of the game-winning touchdown here and video here.)
Goodwin impressed Rutgers coaches and players all summer, and quickly made the adjustment to college football after winning three consecutive state championships with the Dodgers.
