2014 Rutgers Scarlet Knights Football Schedule
The Rutgers Scarlet Knights are ready to hit the gridiron this season
and go to war with some of the best teams in college football. The Knights have a lot of talented players that the program
is hoping will help take the team to the next level in 2014. Rutgers plays in the American Athletic Conference, a league that
includes some of the top teams in the nation each and every season. The Knights finished last season just shy of notching
a.500 overall record, and their 3-5 record in conference play is certainly something the team will look to improve upon in
2014. The Knights know they've got their work cut out for them when they take the field at home against some tough opponents
this season, and they'll be looking to see some great fan turnouts for their contests at High Point Solutions Stadium.

to do battle, as anytime it's Michigan-Rutgers there are always some fireworks. The Wolverines didn't have the best season
in 2013, but this is the kind of team that can easily bounce back the following year thanks to their immense collection of
talent. Fans of the Knights will surely pack the stands of the stadium for this contest this season.
Rutgers will close
things out in 2014 when they host the Indiana Hoosiers on Nov. 15. The Hoosiers will be looking to earn a big victory in this
game, but the Scarlet Knights will fight as hard as they can to stop that from happening. The final home game of the season
is always one of the most anticipated matchups of the season, and this season that should be the case yet again. You definitely
don't want to forget about the road games, though, as it will be Rutgers against Navy in Annapolis on Sept. 20, Rutgers-Ohio
State on Oct. 18 and then Rutgers-Michigan State on Nov. 22 – and that's just the tip of the iceberg. With great matchups
home and on the road all season long, there is sure to be plenty of fanfare around the Knights this season.
