Forget about this game for a second, because trying to handicap this one is going to be impossible. There’s absolutely nothing that we have seen out of either of these teams that makes us want to back either team, as both certainly stunk up the joint in a big time way. But this game isn’t just about the two teams that are on the field. This is a game for the state of New Jersey. The only state college of the Garden State is going to be on fire for this one. Remember six years ago when the Scarlet Knights knocked off the then No. 3 ranked Cardinals right here in Piscataway? The place went absolutely bananas – even more nuts than we normally see when there are big upsets. This is a school in Rutgers that just doesn’t see moments like this. This is a chance to get to the BCS for the first time in school history. And it’s a chance to do it in spite of the fact that Head Coach Greg Schiano left for the NFL. Simply put, it’s the biggest game in the history of the Rutgers program, and the opportunity to win the Big East is just too big to punt away. Sometimes, it’s more about the players on the field and emotion alone can bring you to a win. That’s what Rutgers is going to go through on Thursday night.
Louisville @ Rutgers Pick: Rutgers -3
Louisville @ Rutgers Score Prediction: Rutgers 27 – Louisville 17
