Rutgers Wrestling: 2014-2015 Big Ten schedule released

New, 6 comments

The Big Ten is without a doubt the best wrestling conference in the nation. Check out Rutgers' future opponents for next season.

Rutgers Athletics

Here are some reasons why you should be following Rutgers Wrestling:

  • They're really good. Rutgers finished 11-5 (7-2 in the Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association), good for 34th in InterMat's rankings.
  • They've already beaten a Big Ten foe, as the Scarlet Knights were victorious over Michigan State this past November at the Asics/Journeyman Northeast Duals.
  • Redshirt sophomore Anthony Perrotti (Roseland, NJ) is the first All-American for the Scarlet Knights since 2002.
  • The B1G and wrestling go together like lamb and tuna fish, so following wrestling would greatly appease our new conference overlords.
Coach Scott Goodale (@CoachGoodale) has the Knights heading in the right direction, and with a good amount of returning starters, he has a chance to make some noise against the best competition in the country. Speaking of competition, Rutgers' home schedule is arguably the best in the nation, as the Scarlet Knights will welcome four of the top six teams to Piscataway this coming season.

That's right, Rutgers will be hosting the #6, #4, #2, and #1 ranked teams in the nation next winter, including everyone's favorite team in Central PA (GASP!). Mark your calendars people:
