GAME PREVIEW

Now that a few days have passed since the stomach punch loss to Iowa, how Rutgers responds in as difficult a road game as any team in the country can have is what we’ll be watching for tonight. While Michigan State is down two of its best players in Josh Langford and Nick Ward, who combined to score 34 points in the November win over Rutgers, they are still a super talented and dangerous team. The Scarlet Knights have an opportunity to show how improved they are by playing well in a tough road environment.
