No. 14 Rutgers seeks to rebound against No. 9 Penn State

Following a physically and emotionally draining triple-overtime loss to No. 2 Maryland on Sunday, the Rutgers men's lacrosse team will need to put that game in the rearview to focus on another Sunday night primetime game -- this one on the road against No. 9 Penn State. The Nittany Lions (10-2, 1-2) had a historic start to their season, going 10-0 and becoming the consensus No. 1 team in the country.

No. 11 Rutgers to square off with No. 3 Maryland in primetime on Sunday

For the Rutgers men's lacrosse team, there truly is no place like home. The No. 11 Scarlet Knights have won 13 straight at High Point Solutions Stadium, dating back to an upset victory over Ohio State in the 2015 season finale. This season alone, Rutgers (9-2, 11) has beating four teams that were ranked at one point this season, including a win over then-unranked Army West Point, who now sits at No. 6 in the country. On Sunday night in Big Ten Network primetime, the Knights will face their toughest test of the season in No. 3 Maryland.

Freshman Kieran Mullins was the catalyst for Rutgers' close victory over Brown last time out, nabbing 4 goals, 3 of which came in the fourth quarter.

No. 13 Rutgers cruises past Michigan for first Big Ten win of season

The Rutgers men's lacrosse team needed a bounce-back performance on Saturday against Michigan in order to secure its first Big Ten win of the season. The No. 13 Scarlet Knights did that -- and some -- as they took the Wolverines behind the woodshed in a XX-X victory in Ann Arbor. The story of the day was super-freshman Kieran Mullins, who scored a career-high 8 goals and also added an assist for good measure, outscoring the entire Michigan team by himself with X goal to spare. After two straight losses, there were many questions surrounding this Rutgers team -- falling 12 spots in the national rankings after holding the top spot for the first time in school history -- including consistency in faceoffs, getting shots off and clearing the ball efficienctly. Junior Joe Francisco was having everything his way at the "X," going over 86 percent in 22 opportunities.

No. 13 Rutgers seeks first Big Ten win at Michigan

Currently on a two-game losing streak and set to play in its fourth consecutive road game, the Rutgers men’s lacrosse team needs something good to happen. That opportunity comes on Saturday, as the No. 13 Scarlet Knights (8-2, 0-1) will visit the historic “Big House” for a Big Ten contest against Michigan (8-2, 0-1). After falling to No. 11 Johns Hopkins last Friday by a score of 12-6, Rutgers has dropped to a middle-of-the-pack team after being ranked No. 1 just two weeks ago.

Head coach Brian Brecht took responsibility for the Scarlet Knights dropping their first game of the season as the No. 1 team in the nation. They are back in action Friday at Johns Hopkins.

No. 1 Rutgers falls in upset fashion to Delaware on the road

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.
