Boston College And Rutgers Set For Noon Start

A.J. Black

Boston College and Rutgers have their start time for their matchup on 9/20 in New Jersey. The two teams will battle at noon, and the game will be shown on the Big Ten Network.

Rutgers is currently 1-1 with a lop sided win against UMass, followed by getting shut out by the Iowa Hawkeyes. In their only Big Ten matchup they struggled mightily, only gaining 125 yards total, with their two quarterbacks combining for 41 yards and two intereceptions averaging 1.6 yards per throw. 

This is a big game for BC in terms of recruiting. According to the press release: 

"The game will be a trip home for 17 Boston College student-athletes who hail from the Garden State, including four starters in quarterback Anthony Brown (Cliffwood, N.J.), tight end Korab Idrizi (Fort Lee, N.J.), offensive lineman Ben Petrula (Freehold, N.J.) and defensive end Marcus Valdez (Perth Amboy, N.J.). Boston College has a total of 10 student-athletes on its current two-deep from New Jersey.

Boston College also has three coaches who are natives of New Jersey. Offensive coordinator Mike Bajakian (River Vale, N.J.), wide receivers coach Rich Gunnell (East Windsor, N.J.) and offensive line coach Phil Trautwein (Voorhees, N.J.) all hail from New Jersey."

BC first has to take care of Kansas this week, a game that will be on Friday night on the ACC Network.
