PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers ends a 16-day hiatus on the field Saturday for homecoming against Houston, and getting better play from the defense is important, according to middle linebacker Steve Longa.

Rutgers middle linebacker Steve Longa is leading a Scarlet Knights defense that is stout against the run, but struggles against the pass.

With throw-first Houston coming to town for Saturday's homecoming game, Longa spoke to ScarletReport.com about the improvement of the defense during the bye week, and what he expects from the Cougars.
