Rutgers needs 1 win to become bowl eligible

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Rutgers seemed likely to be bowl eligible in its first season in the Big Ten Conference after piling up five wins. Not anymore. The Scarlet Knights (5-4, 1-4) are riding a three-game losing streak after falling to No. 13 Ohio State (7-1, 4-0), No. 15 Nebraska (8-1, 4-1) and No. 25 Wisconsin (6-2, 3-1) by a combined score of 135-41.

Rutgers held to season-low 139 yards in 37-0 loss

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) The question in Piscataway all week was whether quarterback Gary Nova would be healthy enough to start for Rutgers. Nova got the start over redshirt freshman Chris Laviano and it really didn't make a difference in a 37-0 loss to Wisconsin on Saturday. Rutgers (5-4, 1-4) got blown out again. ''It's been the same repeating thing the past three...

Rutgers back home looking to rebound vs. Wisconsin

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Rutgers could not stop the run on the road in getting a taste of Big Ten Conference reality against No. 13 Ohio State and No. 17 Nebraska.

No matter which QB plays for Rutgers, Badgers will prepare the same

MADISON, Wis. -- Rutgers football coach Kyle Flood enters the week with a quarterback question he cannot fully answer. Not yet, at least. The question: Will starting quarterback Gary Nova be healthy enough to play after sustaining a knee injury on Saturday against Nebraska? "That decision could come at any point during the week," Flood told reporters during his weekly Monday...

Penn State midseason evaluation: Terrible offense but bowl game still in sight?

I have been meaning to share my midseason evaluation of Penn State for a few days now, but other writing conflicts and requirements have been continuing to get in the way.
