Game Preview

Rutgers is set to play its ninth straight Big Ten game in consecutive weeks on short rest in frigid temperatures and batting multiple injuries on both sides of the ball. Let’s hope this team can pull one more surprise and take down a more talented but underperforming Nebraska team. Artur Sitkowski gets another chance to play hero as he’ll start at QB.
