NCAA Football: Maryland at Rutgers Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

Coming off a highly competitive game against #2 Maryland, the #13 Rutgers men's lacrosse team came out flat and dropped a 13-7 game to #10 Penn State. The game was a de facto Big Ten Tournament play-in game as the winner would clinch the last spot in the tournament.

Max Edelmann was the lone bright spot on the day as he set a career high in saves finishing with 16 saves on the day.

Coming off a huge game against Maryland, Face-Off man Joe Francisco struggled against Penn State, losing the first 13 Face-Offs of the game.

The offense struggled on the day finishing with numerous unforced turnovers and Jules Heningburg continued his struggles. Penn State won the ground ball battle and just seemed more into the game. Too many times Rutgers had no back up on shots or poor defense that did not give them a chance to succeed.

One of the bright spots on the day was senior Collin Scarpello who scored his first career goal in the fourth quarter.

Rutgers ends the regular season with a match-up against Ohio State next week in a must win game.
