See, both enter Week 4 of the college football season as nearly undefeated teams.

Big Ten’s East Coast gamble shows immediate payoff

When the Big Ten surprised everyone by moving to add Maryland and Rutgers nearly two years ago, many Midwestern fans weren’t sure that this move was wise. After all, what do these schools possibly have to add to the Big Ten?

Video: Penn State’s Players Celebrate Rutgers Win By Singing “Seven Nation Army” In Locker Room

Needless to say, it’s been an emotional week at Penn State. This past Monday, the NCAA announced that the Nittany Lions would become bowl eligible immediately, effectively cutting the school’s postseason ban in half. Then, Saturday, PSU was tasked with going on the road to Rutgers to play the Scarlet Knights in their first Big Ten home game ever. It certainly looked like Penn...

The Rutgers Review: The Scarlet Knights Are On The Board

Rutgers is on the board.  As their coach Kyle Flood says, each week the team works to get to 1-0, and they are 1-0.  That’s the good news, the bad news is the team still has that murderous schedule coming for the rest of the season. It was a different sort of noise coming out of the Big Ten trumpets following Thursday’s win over Washington State.  Less of the “Rutgers was...
