Rutgers football: the tradition continues/begins

It's been 137 years since Rutgers played the first ever college football game-- against Princeton. It had been nearly that long since the Scarlet Knights had been nationally-ranked.

The wait is over. For the first time since 1976, Rutgers has cracked the top-25 in both major polls. After a 56-7 waxing of Division I-AA Howard, Rutgers sits at No. 23 in both the AP and USA Today rankings.

According to voters, the Scarlet Knights are better than Georgia Tech, Miami and Boston College. Who knew?

Apparently, this guy did. After watching Rutgers beat North Carolina by all of five points in the first week, it got them a top-25 vote from the guy who covered the game. If only we had that kind of foresight.

For those wondering, Rutgers does have a blog presence.
