Scarlet Fever

Rutgers plays perhaps its biggest game since, oh, that Nov. 6, 1869 classic against Princeton. You think we're joking, don't you? Well check out this video and tell us the last time you can remember this happening in Piscataway? Louisville, fresh off its 44-34 victory against West Virginia and in prime position for a berth to the BCS title game, is coming to town for Thursday night's nationally televised game. Both teams are undefeated, but only Louisville is getting mentioned as national championship timber. The Cardinals are No. 3 in the BCS standings and the Scarlet Knights are No. 13. A Rutgers' victory and undefeated season would certainly bring more embarrassment on BCS pollsters. Toss in the memory of Louisville's 56-5 victory last season and it's easy to see why Scarlet Knights fans are fired up (registration).
