Rutgers faces a tall task today in hosting Big Ten leader Purdue in front of a sell out crowd at the RAC. It would be a difficult challenge anyway, but without Mike Williams and Eugene Omoruyi, it’s even more challenging. The two worst defeats margin wise this season came at Purdue last month and at Illinois in its last game, both 31 point losses. Hopefully, Rutgers can prove resilient and put up a fight in front of a potentially raucous home crowd.
