What! Rutgers Can't Play in the Title Game?

It took them 137 years, but Rutgers has finally turned around its program. It was the first time that a ranked Rutgers team had played a ranked opponent. Now we find this hard to believe, because we thought Princeton was No. 1 and Rutgers was No. 2 in the Harris poll when they met in 1869. Turns out, we were wrong. The Scarlet Knights justified that earlier victory over Illinois, so now what? You're telling us an undefeated West Virginia or Louisville would have played in the BCS title game, but an undefeated Rutgers can't? This is one of the topics we will be discussing Friday night on "Sports Overnight America." The fun begins around 11:30 p.m. (Pacific) and if you don't get a local affiliate, you can listen in on Sirius 122, or over the Internet at Sports Byline. It's also available on the Armed Forces Network. Please join us!
