EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first in a six-part entry series each day in which Rutgers players reflect on their first season in the Big Ten. 

Each post will cover a different topic of the season. Today, six players compare their versions of the best game of the season.

Gary Nova (Maryland): "How we came together, finished the game strong and with (offensive coordinator (Ralph) Friedgen and the first win on the road in the Big Ten and Maryland being so close and the potential rivalry building up. All those things together made it a really great game."

Kaleb Johnson (Maryland): "Everybody came together, fought back through some adversity. Because of the season we had, we had a lot of doubters. We were able to fight through that."

Darius Hamilton (Penn State): "Penn State. I've never had more fun playing a football game in my life."

Michael Burton (Maryland): "Being in the locker room after the Maryland game was very special. The team was so happy, the coaches — to do that for Coach Friedgen was incredible. You have to look at the Michigan game, as well — the crowd coming onto the field, it being a Big Ten win."

Kevin Snyder (Penn State): "I would say, except for the result, Penn State. Just the fanbase, the energy, the hatred, the passion we played with — all that."

Leonte Carroo (Michigan): "Best game — Michigan. We won and it was just a great feeling. The student section stormed the field. We played hard as a team. Just a great team effort all around, from special teams to offense and defense. It was the best feeling."
