Rutgers enters this game at Michigan with a 1-29 record on the road in Big Ten play since joining the conference four seasons ago. They have also never won back to back regular season Big Ten games. The Scarlet Knights can accomplish both against a Michigan team that is playing its fourth game in eight days and lost by 20 points Thursday night at Nebraska. It won’t be easy, but if Rutgers can continue to play hard on defense and share the basketball on offense, they’ll have a chance to pull off the upset.
