NEWARK, Del. -- It was a perfect day for lacrosse. But the Rutgers men's lacrosse team had anything but that.A lacrosse game is four quarters long, so when the No. 1 Scarlet Knights (8-1) only put together one good period, they set themselves up for a disappointing 13-9 at the hands of unranked Delaware (7-3).After senior midfielder Jeff George fired in a goal to open up the game, the Blue Hens came out with an intensity that Rutgers simply could not match.

Week in and week out, the Rutgers men's lacrosse team has proven that last year's historic season was no fluke.In this week's Inside Lacrosse Media Poll, the Scarlet Knights (8-0) came in at the top spot, ahead of perennial power Notre Dame and fellow Big Ten teams Penn State and Ohio State.While Penn State (11) and Notre Dame (10) both received more first place votes than Rutgers (7), the Knights still found themselves with the top ranking, mainly due to strong wins against No. 8 Army and No. 13 Princeton.Rutgers is in the midst of a seven-day rest period before hitting the road for a contest at Delaware (x-x). That game will conclude the Knights' nonconference slate, and although there stands to be a great chance they finish 9-0, a brutal Big Ten schedule awaits them.As it stands now, every team in the Big Ten is ranked, with Rutgers' schedule starting off with a road test at No. 17 Johns Hopkins on March 31.
