Rutgers News


Of all the NFL stadiums that Rutgers has played in recently, CenturyLink Field – where the Scarlet Knights open against Washington State on Aug. 28 in Seattle – will be different from the rest for one significant reason.
From a defensive standpoint, there’s almost no doubt about what will come to pass when Rutgers opens its season against Washington State on Aug. 28. A quick review of the final NCAA statistics from the 2013 is all that’s required.
Rutgers officially begins preparation on Wednesday for the opener against Washington State on Aug. 28, meaning the summer grind of camp, a regimen of all football that includes double sessions under a blazing sun in full pads, is over.
If Rutgers’ second and final scrimmage is any indication, the Scarlet Knights’ running backs can expect to be a lot more involved in the passing game than they have been recently.
A program-record 30,721 season tickets have been sold – eclipsing the old mark of 30,500 set in 2009 – and just 367 seats remain for the Scarlet Knights’ Big Ten opener against Penn State on Sept. 13 at High Point Solutions Stadium, the school announced today.
