Breaking down and analyzing the 2019 Rutgers Scarlet Knights football schedule.
2019 Rutgers Scarlet Knights Football Schedule Analysis
– The UMass game might be a bit of a shootout to open things up, but it has to be an easy win with the Big Ten season kicking off next. There’s a week off to get ready for a home date against Boston College – call that a status report moment on where the program is at. Liberty is a nice midseason break in late October.
– The Scarlet Knights don’t have to deal with back-to-back road games all season long, but they have a brutal finishing kick after a November week off. Ohio State, Michigan State, at Penn State – they need to have their wins banked before this. The Michigan game is on the road at the end of September.
– Missing Wisconsin and Nebraska from the West helps, but the Big Ten season kicks off on September 7th against Iowa. The other interdivisional dates are in October, hosting Minnesota and going to Illinois.
