Rutgers falls on road to Michigan

The Rutgers men’s soccer team has begun a new losing streak for the third time this season, losing a tough match over the weekend in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Scarlet Knights (2-9-1, 0-6-0) traveled up north on Friday night, where they faced fellow Big Ten team Michigan (7-3-2, 4-1-1). Rutgers could not overcome a 2-1 halftime deficit, ultimately falling 3-1.

Rutgers remains winless in Big Ten play with loss to Northwestern

The Rutgers men’s soccer team played one of its most important matches of the season this past weekend but was unable to capture the near must-win match. The Scarlet Knights (3-10-1, 0-7-0) traveled up to Evanston, Illinois for a matchup with fellow Big Ten squad Northwestern (5-9-0, 1-5-0) on Sunday afternoon. Although it needed a Big Ten win to not be last seed in the Big Ten Tournament, Rutgers couldn’t get anything going all match, falling by a score of 3-0 and placing itself in danger.

Morgan State is stage for Bolin to rectify Saturday's struggles

After finishing on a 24-34 line with 178 passing yards in his first game for the Rutgers football team — with two touchdowns to boot — graduate transfer quarterback and freshly minted captain Kyle Bolin looked reasonably sharp after taking the starting job from Giovanni Rescigno out of summer camp. That was week one against a Washington defense that piled on the pressure, especially later on, drawing two interceptions, one of which led to a score. One would assume — and many did — that Bolin would have his way against Eastern Michigan, a Mid-American Conference team without a win over the entire Big Ten.
