Video: Tides Turning for 4-1 Rutgers

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Don't look now but Rutgers is 4-1 and a favorite in many betting circles to beat Michigan in the clash of the two oldest teams in FBS football. An offseason filled with speed bumps and question marks, have Rutgers and coach Kyle Flood found their stride?

Good news came in flurries for Rutgers at the start of the season. After an offseason of coaching changes and lost recruiting wars, Rutgers and coach Kyle Flood stayed focused on going 1-0 every day.

An upset on the road over Washington State, a contract extension, a recruit-filled sell out against Penn State, a road upset over Navy and the transfer home of four-star Kiy Hester are the highlights for 4-1 Rutgers.

The Scarlet Knights face traditional powerhouse Michigan Saturday in what projects as another sell out, and they do so as a coin flip in Las Vegas.

Scout.com Rutgers publisher Sam Hellman and national recruiting analyst Brian Dohn break down what it means with more likely on the way.
