Game Day Links

It’s game day and it’s a big one for Rutgers football. The Scarlet Knights have a tremendous opportunity to earn the program’s first Big Ten win of the season against Northwestern.

The program issued a statement that Max Melton and Chris Long have been reinstated. It also appears Bo Melton and Raiqwon O’Neal will play after missing last week due to injury. Aron Cruickshank, Tyreek Maddox-Williams and Cedrice Paillant appear to be out.

Whichever team wins the turnover battle and controls the game on the ground likely wins it. Let’s hope Rutgers can bounce back with a strong performance today.
