Week 1 Film Review

Notes: This game is a sellout, marking the 12th straight dating back to the 2019-2020 season....The Rutgers Athletic Center is officially called Jersey Mike’s Arena per a sponsorship deal announced last week.....If you are attending the game at Jersey Mike’s Arena, click here for new guidelines this season including masking policy and new ticketing procedures.

Game Preview

A comfortable win would be preferred after the previous two games being closer than expected. Add in the fact that Rutgers will play DePaul in Chicago in roughly 48 hours and it would be better if the starters didn’t have to play 35 minutes tonight.
