Staff Predictions

Let’s face it, this is a huge game for both teams as it’s each their best chance for a win on their schedule the rest of the season. Illinois has beaten Rutgers three of the past four seasons, so hopefully things change today.

Rutgers has been the better team through three games. They need to win the turnover margin and execute in the red zone. Whichever team has more success with the run has the chance to control the game. For the Scarlet Knights, how Noah Vedral plays under center could be the difference in the game.
