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.
