Rutgers really struggled when they joined the Big 10. They just were not even competitive. Their best years were under Coach Schiano and they brought him back. He is now in his fourth year and progress has been made, but this program still has a long way to go. Virginia Tech is 1-1 and they were unable to run the ball vs. Purdue in a seven-point loss. Rutgers has a good run-stop unit, but they have not been good vs. the pass. That provides an opening for the Virginia Tech passing game, as they have struggled running the ball. I looked at Rutgers last game and saw the same line as this game, but that was Rutgers facing Temple. Is Temple as good as Virginia Tech? I think this is an overreaction by the market, and I will play on Virginia Tech.
