The bad news for the Rutgers football team? It was just embarrassed at home by No. 11 Ohio State to the tune of 56-0.
The struggles continued for the Rutgers football team when it was beaten down at home by No. 11 Ohio State by a score of 56-0.
There was a point Saturday night — sometime after the first wave of students and spectators filed out and before the second wave — where the Rutgers football team strung together two passes. Both forward, both illegal. On the same play.The Scarlet Knights were down 35-0, three minutes removed from halftime, and it still may not have been the lowest valley for them.Instead, that may have come when kicker Andrew Harte, with less than a minute to go in the game, sent a 32-yard field goal straight into the left goalpost. There's a metaphor in there somewhere.
It seems as though Ohio State was made for the Rutgers football team — in the worst possible way.In strolls a team with the 18th best rushing offense in the country with 919 yards to take on another team who has noticeably struggled at stopping the run through its first four games.Being able to guess which team is which is one thing Scarlet Knights fans can look forward to.This
Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Rutgers (1-3, 0-1) will return to High Point
Solutions Stadium to battle No. 11 Ohio State (3-1, 1-0) in its second
primetime matchup of the season.
The Rutgers football team is set to take on No. 11 Ohio State this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in its first conference home game of the season. In anticipation of the matchup, The Daily Targum reached out to Colin Hass-Hill, sports editor at The Lantern, Ohio State's student newspaper, for insight on the Buckeyes. Colin was nice enough to oblige and can be found on Twitter — @chasshill — for news and updates on the Ohio State football team.
Rutgers fans impatient with head coach Chris Ash's progress should look no further than the career of former head coach Greg Schiano.It at least should be a source of comfort to know that Ash's 3-11 start through roughly one and a half years at the helm of the Rutgers football team was prefaced by similar numbers from his predecessor two times over.
When you think of the Rutgers football program in the 21st century, the name Greg Schiano holds more weight than any, as he transformed the program from perennial cupcakes to an 11-2 season in 2006, reaching as high as No. 8 in the national polls.
If you were thinking of one player that the Rutgers football team's
defense could not afford to lose, junior cornerback Blessuan Austin
would most likely be at the top of that list.And as it so
happened, the Scarlet Knights lost their three-year starter last
Saturday when he tore his ACL against Nebraska, an injury that will keep
him out for the rest of the 2017 season.In steps sophomore Damon
Hayes, who despite his age, has plenty of experience on the Rutgers
defense and will look to fill Austin's shoes as one of the two
Football is as physical as it is mental, and sometimes those two are not mutually exclusive.The clock reads 60 minutes, but it is essentially a three-hour affair of game action, position setting, playcalling and timeouts — of which there are often way too many of the media variety.After practices throughout the week, a battle on Saturday will take its toll on any player, college or professional, but of course, it affects some more than others.That is never more evident than when injuries hamper the depth of some teams, which is a problem the Rutgers football team has been dealing with on certain units this season, especially in its 27-17 loss to Nebraska on the road last weekend."(In the) second half we wore out, just a lack of depth up front on the (defensive) line started to show up there in the third quarter," said head coach Chris Ash.That lack of depth is partly responsible for the Scarlet Knights' inability to stop the run in the second half Saturday, as the Huskers' running backs Devine Ozigbo and Mikale Wilbon rushed for 105 and 79 yards respectively.
