Rutgers will begin the 2011 schedule with its 142nd season of college football Thursday, Sept. 1 when the Scarlet Knights host North Carolina Central.
Scarletknights.com reports that Rutgers and North Carolina Central will meet for the first time. Rutgers is 7-0 all-time against opponents from the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. Coach Greg Schiano starts his 11th season with the Scarlet Knights, and he is only the fourth coach in Big East history to coach 10 seasons for the same school.
According to SB Nation New York, some people claim the Scarlet Knights have "an embarrassment of riches at running back." Sophomore Jeremy Deering is back, along with junior De'Antwan Williams, and freshman Savon Huggins.
