(U-WIRE) NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. -- With the death march that is the upcoming portion of the Scarlet Knights schedule, all areas of the team will need to play their best football if Rutgers is to avoid falling to 1-8 on the season. For a young team still taking infant steps along the endless process of rebuilding to respectability, playing competitive football in the next six games will be crucial to staying on course with the path head coach Greg Schiano has laid out to make RU successful.
