Rutgers Scarlet Knights Football Schedule Analysis: Can they start out hot? The Syracuse game on the road that would’ve been a sure loss a few years ago is now more like a 50/50 game, and a 3-0 start is a must because …

At Michigan, Ohio State, Michigan State, at Northwestern. It’s possible to have a rougher start to the Big Ten season, but this isn’t far off.

Getting the defending Big Ten West champ – Northwestern – and Wisconsin doesn’t help, and making things worse is a finishing kick with four road games in five including dates at Indiana and Penn State.

Rutgers Scarlet Knights Football Schedule Best Case Scenario: It’s a 3-0 start before dealing with some of the big boys. They find a way to win one of the next four games and take out Illinois. There’s another upset win somewhere to make the Maryland game matter, with a win getting them bowl eligible.

Rutgers Scarlet Knights Football Schedule Worst Case Scenario: A flop against Temple to start the season is made worse with a loss at Syracuse to follow. They don’t come close in any of the games against the big boys, and a loss to Illinois is part of a winless Big Ten run until the regular season finale against Maryland.
