Game 27 four thoughts


Here we go. The Big Ten is all over the place down the stretch, as upsets are happening all around. Can Rutgers take the next step and knock off a ranked team on the road? It would be especially sweet after losing to Iowa two weeks ago at home in such heartbreaking fashion. It won’t be easy, but if they bring their A game on the defensive end and take advantage inside against Iowa on the offensive end, they can win this game. The toughness of this young team needs to be front and center today.
