Rutgers' fundraising up B1G... 85% B1G

Rutgers made a B1G announcement today. The eight-year campaign came to a conclusion with RU raising over $1 billion, and exceeding their goal by $37 million. That included an 85% increase from 2013 for the athletic department. Over $4.5 million was raised since Rutgers joined the B1G.

Not even a year into the league and financial dividends are paying off. Donors are coming out in force. With the full benefits of TV money on the horizon, the opportunity for expansion and upgrades may come sooner than many expect.

Great day for the University.
