    Rutgers adds Ohio to 2023 football schedule

      As a New Jersey resident, I find it a sad (but extremely
      accurate) commentary that the FBSCHEDULES photo of Rutgers bursting out onto the field at High Point Solutions Stadium…….shows mostly empty seats in the background. Will Rutgers announce a crowd for the 2023 Ohio game which is 20-25% larger than the actual number of bodies in seats, as they did at the 2011 Ohio game in Piscataway, which I attended?

      Could be worse. They could have had a shot of the stadium in the 4th quarter of the Penn State game.

      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

      good matchup……schools only 4 hours apart.

      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.
