No University can trace their football program back farther than the Rutgers University Scarlet Knights. On November 6th, 1869, a team from Rutgers lined up against one from Princeton in the first ever college football game. Rutgers would go on to win both games that season against Princeton and claim the inaugural college football national championship. Since then the Scarlet Knights have won over 600 games, 4 conference titles, and played many bowl games. Rutgers remains one of the premier programs in the Northeast, and has seen a revival of success in recent years. A move to the Big 10 places Rutgers in a conference with the best competition in the Northeast, and Midwest, and looks to help the Scarlet Knights build on what is already a jeweled history. Gamedays in Piscataway are known for being loud and full of energy. Fans should be prepared to wear nothing but scarlet and to sing R-U, Rah, Rah, loud and often.

The two programs are the only remaining of the original informal Ivy League schools to still field FBS programs. While the Scarlet Knights have seen many rivalries come and go, the matchup between these two Northeast neighbors has endured and continues to be one of the closest contested games in the region.

2011 Rutgers Football Preview
Rutgers has experienced somewhat of a football Renaissance under head coach Greg Schiano, despite a disappointing 4-8 season last year. The Scarlet Knights are looking to toss that out, though, rebound in 2011 and return to the post season. With a slew of returning players on offense and a solid defense, there's no reason why they won't be playing in bowl game this year.
The offense will be led by sophomore quarterback Chas Dodd, who will be taking over the reins after starting eight games last year as a freshman. He will be surrounded by a pair of reliable targets in veteran receivers Mohamed Sanu and Mark Harrison, as well as the capable hands of fullback Joe Martinek. Freshman tailback Savon Huggins should also get a bulk of the carries.
As for the defense, the Scarlet Knights will have to improve if they're looking to return to their previous relevance in the Big East. Last year's squad was porous at times, even surrendering 69 points to Cincinnati. The key to the defense are linebacker Khaseem Greene and Steve Beauharnais, two of just five returning starters.

Since 2005, the Scarlet Knights have finished every season with a winning record, and have not lost any of their four postseason games, most recently dismantling the University of Central Florida 45-28 in last year's St Petersburg Bowl.
Head coach Greg Schiano looks to continue his winning ways with some help from sophomore quarterback Tom Savage, who threw for 2,211 yards and 14 touchdowns last season. Top rusher Joe Martinek and sophomore receiver Mohamed Sanu, who scored 17 times between them in 2009, will be Savage's main targets as the Knights try to bring down their Big East rivals. The Knights open their season on September 2 at home against Norfolk State.
