Rutgers Scarlet Knights
Rutgers landed Skai Moore in large part because Pernetti was able to do the impossible and get Rutgers out from the sinking ship that was (and is) the Big East, and into a power player in college football.
The Scarlet Knights had only four baskets in the final seven minutes as Carter, who averages 18 points per game, finished 1 of 12 from the field and misfired on six 3-point attempts.
Rutgers, which could have clinched its first-ever BCS Bowl berth last week if they had showed up in Pittsburgh, blew their chance for redemption despite having everything set up perfectly for a momentous “Knight.”

The feel around this game should be like 2006, when the Scarlet Knights upset the Cardinals, then the No. 3 team in the nation. Now, on Thursday night, Rutgers needs that same special moment created by the best atmosphere in program history.
The ex-coach’s custom-built 8,500-square-foot house — constructed with a Rutgers loan on land in Piscataway formerly owned by the university — has been on the market for more than seven months without a bite.
There is an abundance of great college football action Saturday, and we will be one step closer to figuring out who will play in this season’s big bowl games.

Silverman thinks Rutgers moving to the Big Ten is another step in the wrong direction for college sports.
Multiple reports suggest Rutgers could be joining an expanded Big Ten Conference.
Savon Huggins ran for a career-high 179 yards as Rutgers defeated Cincinnati and improved to 9-1.
Rutgers survived a valiant effort by mistake-prone Army in posting a 28-7 victory Saturday.
And so while the Scarlet Knights (7-1) certainly want to get on the field and win again, no question, they also want to provide a little distraction from Superstorm Sandy for their state.
Rutgers must take make the most of the bye last week and this week’s practices to regroup and refocus and make that last game a flash in the pan.
