Rutgers Touchdown Club - News

Football

One team is looking past this game, thinking about what bowl and what team they will have to play. The other team is desperately looking for a victory to end their season on a semi-high note.
With one final game left in the 2002 season, Rutgers looks to salvage all they can from a season of injuries and halftime hopes. On Saturday, the Scarlet Knights (1-10, 0-6) will travel to Chestnut Hill, Mass. to battle the Eagles of Boston College (7-4, 2-4) and their "Super Fans." The Eagles have won three of their last four, clinching a post-season bowl game, including an outstanding win over previously unbeaten Notre Dame in South Bend, a win over Syracuse and a 36-14 stomping of Temple.

The survivor of Saturday's traditional "Backyard Brawl" between West Virginia and host Pittsburgh likely will have the honor of capping its season with a New Year's Day bowl appearance.

Interesting Article

Maybe it's time to start thinking of Connecticut for something other than basketball. Like football, maybe?
The UConn players certainly are thinking that way after the biggest victory in the program's three years in Division I-A. The Huskies beat Iowa State 37-20 in their season finale on Saturday, dominating a team that was ranked ninth nationally in mid-October.
"We just put ourselves on the map," quarterback Dan Orlovsky said. "When people hear about UConn from now on, they're going to think basketball AND football. It's not only going to be a basketball school."
Connecticut says Iowa State puts them on map
