With 52 points surrendered at Indiana, 49 yielded against No. 1 Ohio State and 48 relinquished at Wisconsin, the Scarlet Knights (3-5, 1-4) have given up at least 45 points or more in three consecutive contests for the first time in the program’s 146-year history.To one of the newest members of the units young secondary group, that nugget is enough to drive the defense insane.“It just messes with the head because you feel like you’re around the ball, and then you seek out and then you just look up and it’s just 40, 50 yards down the field,” said redshirt freshman Kiy Hester.

Janarion Grant isn’t used to this.After taking the attention of the college football world by storm with his three electrifying touchdown returns in the first two games of the season, the dynamic junior wide receiver and kick returner has largely gone missing in the Rutgers football team’s last six contests.Despite his 42-yard kick return last Saturday in the Scarlet Knights’ 48-10 loss at Wisconsin, sending him atop the program’s record books with 2,065 kick return yards and a 24.9 average per return, Grant knows he’s been bottled up now for some time.“They’ve been keeping (kicks) away from me,” he said.
Nearly 13 months after its first conference game against Penn State last October at High Point Solutions Stadium, the Rutgers football team will truly find out what it means to be a member of the Big Ten Conference on Saturday when the Scarlet Knights (3-5, 1-4) travel to Michigan Stadium to take on Michigan in Ann Arbor.Both the Wolverines (6-2, 3-1) and their stadium represent the goal Rutgers is striving for as a program. Michigan serves as a model institution for the State University of New Jersey to emulate, not only in terms of athletics, but academics as well."I've been thinking about that all (Sunday) and (Monday)," said junior tight end Nick Arcidiacono.
Through the first six games of the season for the Rutgers Football team, stories of success were in abundance up and down the roster.From the impressive play of the starting quarterback and top wide receiver to the performance at the tight end position and on special teams, there was a lot for fans of the Scarlet Knights to be excited about. But during a losing skid that includes back-to-back lopsided losses and three defeats in four games, Rutgers has regressed in areas that were seen as a strength a mere three weeks ago.After returning from an indefinite suspension as a result of a domestic assault charge being dismissed, senior wide receiver Leonte Carroo lit the college football world on fire. Carroo, an offensive captain for the Knights, posted consecutive games with three touchdowns--first against then-No.4 Michigan State and then through three quarters in the historic comeback at Indiana. But since landing awkwardly on his third touchdown catch versus the Hoosiers, Rutgers all-time leader in receiving touchdowns has been relegated to splitting time while he nurses a lower body injury that limited him in the 49-7 rout by No. 1 Ohio State and kept him out of the 48-10 whitewash by Wisconsin last Saturday.“It was pretty hard,” the senior wideout said of having to watch the blowout by the Badgers in street clothes.
Senior wide receiver Leonte Carroo caught nine touchdown passes in the Knights first six games of the season, but after a lower body injury in the third quarter against Indiana Oct. 17, the senior captain has been slowed on the field. Carroo sat out for the 48-10 loss at Wisconsin Oct.31.
As the Rutgers football team slugged through another blowout for the second consecutive weekend, all Hayden Rettig could do was watch.Restricted to the sideline as he has been for much of his first year of eligibility after transferring from LSU, the sophomore quarterback stood around with his teammates in the cold rain as Wisconsin buried the Scarlet Knights, 48-10, last Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium.From the jump, it hasn’t been the ideal season for Rutgers (3-5, 1-4). “It’s tough for everybody, I guess,” Rettig said on Saturday.
Entering the matchup against Wisconsin, the Rutgers football team had several question marks to address, beginning with the status of each team's best player.

Second time's the charm?The Rutgers football team arrives in Madison, Wisconsin, this weekend hoping to tame a Badgers defense that is second-best in the nation in points allowed at 11.1 per game.In the first meeting between the two, Wisconsin spoiled Homecoming for the Scarlet Knights, stifling Rutgers' offense in a 37-0 rout on a rain-soaked Saturday afternoon last November.
If last weekend’s 49-7 blowout loss in front of a sellout crowd at High Point Solutions Stadium to No. 1 Ohio State was frightening, then things have the potential to become downright terrifying on Halloween when the Rutgers football team plays its next game.The idea of taking on Wisconsin (6-2, 3-1) in itself isn’t the scary part.

After two of the best performances in his young collegiate career, Chris Laviano looked like he was finally beginning to turn the corner for the Rutgers football team.In a tightly contested battle with then-No. 4 Michigan State and a 25-point comeback victory over Indiana the very next week, the sophomore quarterback appeared ready as ever for the challenge No. 1 Ohio State posed last Saturday night at High Point Solutions Stadium.But the Glen Head, New York, native did exactly the opposite, turning in the worst of his six starts under center with 10-of-20 passing for 117 yards and an interception as the Scarlet Knights (3-4, 1-3) struggled mightily on offense all night long in a 49-7 blowout loss to the Buckeyes (8-0, 4-0).“Ultimately, we just didn’t make enough plays and played pretty poorly.
