1) Does Rutgers’ QB change affect the outlook for that game? Would you rather face a running or throwing QB with this defense, all else being equal? — schubee

Chris Coleman: I like this question. In case you missed it, Rutgers has named Minnesota transfer Athan Kaliakmanis as the starting quarterback, displacing returning starter Gavin Wimsatt, who has decided to hit the transfer portal.

Let’s compare their career numbers as a passer:

Kaliakmanis: 216-of-405 (53.3%) for 2,784 yards, 6.9 ypa, 17 TDs, 13 INTs, 118.5 rating
Wimsatt: 212-of-455 (46.6%) for 2,537 yards, 5.6 ypa, 14 TDs, 17 INTs, 96.1 rating
