      A correction. The road game at Miami was canceled by Rutgers at a cost of $100,000 to allow the BC game to be played. It will not be rescheduled. Rutger has two opening to be filled on its OOC schedule.

      This is a good deal for Rutgers, If Boston College stinks, then it give Rutgers a remote possibility of winning a P5 OOC game. Rutgers should never again schedule teams like Washington which they did in 2014 knowing full well that giving Chris Petersen 3 years to get Washington to the next level would result in a bloodbath for Rutgers before the Big 10 season and further cement Rutgers into the sub basement of college football rankings. Expect another route in 2017 when Washington comes to New Jersey in September before Rutgers gets dismantled by the likes of Michigan Michigan State, Ohio State and Penn State just like 2016. There is no reason to believe and no evidence in the offing that Rutgers will ever be a serious player in the Big 10-certainly 120 years of mediocrity supports that thesis.

      Still hoping Rutgers and Princeton gets done in 2019 for 150th anniversary of first college game. Nov 9 is days from the anniversary and both have open date that day. If they’re going play Norfolk State or Howard might as well play Princeton for its FCS game. Ivy havent played a played a power 5 team in 30 years though . ( Cornell at Stanford around 1990

      College football needs more match ups like this in the Northeast. The Big Ten’s Rutgers, Penn St, and Maryland need more games against the ACC’s Pitt, Syracuse, and Boston College. Working in teams like WVU, UConn, and Temple would be nice too.

      Funny how Snyder has no problem playing series against Stanford and Washington State, but playing a series against Oregon was a problem for him so he cancelled on the Ducks.

      Rutgers….quality Small 10 team. Quality Small 10 scheduling.

      RUtgers should leave the Big Ten, where they will never be competitive and play the likes of Buffalo and join the MAC. Their 120 years of football futility combined with their multi million dollar losses each year in the athletic budget cannot go on forever. It is high time that some sense of reality is restored to their athletic vision. With this years schedule and their trip to Washington to open the season, I am confident that they will lose another 4-5 games by at least 3-6 touchdowns.

        Rutgers isn’t getting a full share of the B1G revenue yet, when that kicks in it’ll really help

      Any news on a possible Princeton Rutgers matchup in 2019 which would be the 150th anniversary of the first college football game. Rutgers won 6-4 in 1869, then lost the next 33 straight to Princeton

        I doubt that would ever happen since Princeton is an Ivy League school but that would be cool, for old time sake.
