PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Joe Behnke got a senior night moment he will never forget. In his final home game wearing the Rutgers uniform, the fifth-year walk-on drilled the final field goal in a 31-6 victory over South Florida.

Rutgers coach Kyle Flood gave Joe Behnke a senior night gift by calling his name for the final field goal of Saturday night's victory over South Florida.

The product of multiple walk-on tryouts, Behnke finally made the roster last year during a mid-season kicking competition. He lost the battle, but stuck around on the scout team and was rewarded with a 20-yard kick against USF in his final home game.
