The Rutgers football team will look to make it two Big Ten wins in a
row when it takes on Purdue in its Homecoming game this Saturday. The
Scarlet Knights (2-4, 1-2) are coming off a 35-24 road win over Illinois
where they rushed for 274 yards and 5 touchdowns in a dominating
performance.The Boilermakers (3-3, 1-2) are coming off a
hard-fought 17-9 loss against No. 7 Wisconsin and are much improved from
a year ago when the team went 3-9 and had just one Big Ten victory — a
34-31 overtime win over Illinois. Here is what to watch for when the two
teams face off at noon on Saturday.
The Rutgers offensive turned heads in the first game of the season, when it held its own and played a strong game against Washington, a team with one of the best defensive lines in the country.But that success wasn't there in a loss to Eastern Michigan and especially in a loss to Nebraska, when the team only ran for 68 yards, averaging just 2.8 yards per carry.

Looking ahead to the Rutgers football team's game against Illinois, the Daily Targum reached out to the Daily Illini, the student newspaper of Illinois.

Fourteen days separate the Rutgers football team's last game from its next, and still the stench of a 56-0 loss to Ohio State at home wafts in and out of the Hale Center, as the team tosses over its options heading out of the bye week.
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

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.
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
