Rutgers looks to accomplish two things tonight. Produce a winning streak during the Big Ten regular season for the first time, as well as pick up just its second conference victory on the road in 34 tries since joining the league. Maryland is a better team, but they are beatable IF AND ONLY IF Rutgers plays well. How the Scarlet Knights respond after Tuesday’s come from behind win over Northwestern will be interesting to watch for. They’ll need to play with energy, defend, and rebound to pull of a second upset of the week.
