Rutgers suffered its worst loss in more than 100 years by falling 92-31 to Louisville in the final game of the season.
Louisville is the defending national champion. The Cardinals are ranked No. 5 in the country and playing well heading into the NCAA Tournament. So it’s no surprise that Rutgers had a tough time staying with U of L Thursday afternoon in the quarterfinals of the inaugural AAC Tournament. But losing by 61 points? That’s a bit of a stretch.

In the words of Ron Burgundy, that escalated quickly. Rutgers actually took an 8-7 lead to start the game, but from there on out, the Scarlet Knights were absolutely curb stomped. Louisville closed the first half on a 45-6 run and led by a total of 42-points at the half.

The Rutgers season ended with perhaps the ugliest two hours of the season Thursday in a 92-31 loss to Louisville. The Scarlet Knights fell behind early and were never competitive in what will end the first season under coach Eddie Jordan.
Rutgers added another quality non-conference opponent Thursday with the formal announcement of a home-and-home deal with Washington. The Scarlet Knights and Huskies begin a football series in 2016, the schools announced, and Rutgers pushed back its deal with UCLA to 2020-21.
Rutgers survived against South Florida and faces a quick turnaround against No. 5 Louisville Thursday at 3 p.m. The Scarlet Knights played Louisville close at home, but suffered one of its worst blowouts of the season on the road in 2014.
After falling to the Rutgers Scarlet Knights by the score of 72-68 on Wednesday night, the South Florida Bulls are now eliminated from the AAC Tournament, and have ended the 2013-14 season with a conference worst 3-15 record.
Woodbury (N.J.) athlete Troy Shorts took in Rutgers during a busy Saturday filled with underclassman visitors. Shorts broke down his visit, and favorite parts of seeing the Scarlet Knights up close.
Rutgers plays host to two Virginia prospects Monday, including Manassas (Va.) Stonewall Jackson five-star defensive tackle Tim Settle. Settle is visiting alongside Clifton (Va.) Centreville cornerback Charles Tutt and both hope to earn offers from the Scarlet Knights.
Cincinnati will go into Saturday's game against Rutgers with a shot to earn the American Athletic Conference men's basketball regular season championship.
With a victory over the Scarlet Knights, the Bearcats clinch at least a share of the crown.
From there it gets more complicated to see if Cincinnati (25-5, 14-3) will hold sole possession of the title.
The Rutgers quarterback competition this offseason will pit veteran Gary Nova against a trio of unproven young players.
The three challengers for the starting job – Mike Bimonte, Blake Rankin and Chris Laviano – have combined for zero snaps in a college game. But the quarterbacks have been developing behind the scenes on the practice field, and former star wide receiver Brandon...
Tyler Scaife had 21 points and Kahleah Copper had 17 points and 12 rebounds on Wednesday night to lead No. 24 Rutgers past Temple 67-58.
