The route is officially on.

The (about) 500 Rutgers fans that made the trip from New Jersey are making their voices heard here at Raymond James Stadium after Kenny Britt’s 92-yard touchdown scamper has given Rutgers a 42-16 lead.

After receiving the ball at their own five yard-line, the Scarlet Knights gained two-yards on a rush by freshman Joe Martinek, but on the next play Mike Teel went play-action, and tested USF cornerback Jerome Murphy deep.

Murphy didn’t pass the test.

Britt, who has 163-yards and a touchdown, broke on a post-route down the center, had about a five-yard gap, snatched the ball out of the air and trucked Murphy after the reception.

Britt danced, along with the Rutgers section, across the goal-line.

9:45 left to go in the game.
