Game Preview

The moment of truth for Rutgers football is here. If they want to show their making progress today is the game they need to put it all together. Illinois is their best chance for a Big Ten victory this season and they need to seize the day. It’s the annual blackout game and after playing better in the second half against Indiana last week, it’s time to produce. Let’s hope this team can respond and end the first half of what’s been a disappointing season so far on a positive note.
