Game Day Edition

Rutgers Football

Rutgers' offensive linemen hung out last year, too. It's just that last year was Thursday nights. For buffalo wings. And maybe a little ESPN.
A fine line

Even if this is Rutgers' most improved unit (which it has to be if the Scarlet Knights expect any kind of success), the offensive line still prompts the most uncertainty. Transfers John Glass and Ron Green soup up the athlete quotient, but neither has played a live game since 2001.

Buffalo Looks Ahead to Rutgers

For most football programs, victories over Rutgers University generally don't register a pulse north of flat line. The Scarlet Knights, by all accounts, are the kind of team you invite for homecoming fodder.
But at the University at Buffalo, a program with only six Division I-A wins, triumphs over Rutgers, or anyone else for that matter, are cause for celebration. And last year's win at Rutgers was the Bulls' lone victory of the season, and few could have predicted the outcome.
