The last time Rutgers played a Big Ten game at the RAC, they gave the now #1 squad in the country, Michigan State, all they could handle. A lot has happened for this team since, both good and bad. Mired in a three game losing streak, the Scarlet Knights have an opportunity to break through tonight against Wisconsin.
In what is just a 48 hour turnaround from its last game, a 31 point road loss at Purdue, perhaps the quick transition could benefit Rutgers. They just played three games in two and a half weeks, having to wait six days between contests. Maybe having little time in between will allow them to put the losing streak behind them and focus on a winnable game in conference play.
