Rice, who was a finalist for the Doak Walker Award, ran for over 1,700 yards again this season and became Rutgers all time leader for rushing with 4,646 career yards on the ground. He is the first Scarlet Knight to rush for 20 touchdowns in back-to-back seasons. Rice was also named a Second Team All-American by the Walter Camp Foundation. Foster finished the regular season with 62 tackles, 13 tackles-for-loss, five sacks, an interception and two forced fumbles. In addition, Rice and Foster were named to the All-BIG EAST First Team for 2007.
