Rutgers gets 1st Big Ten road experience at Ohio State

Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Rutgers’ first Big Ten football road game will come on one the conference’s biggest stages when No. 13 Ohio State hosts the Scarlet Knights Saturday.

“That’s another monumental game right there,” said Scarlet Knights offensive tackle Keith Lumpkin. “It’s a dream to play in that stadium. Some people might find it nerve-wracking or kind of scary. It’s just 100,000 watching me about to kick their team’s butt, so that’s how I see it.”

Another week, another milestone and another bit of extra incentive for an Ohio State opponent. The Scarlet Knights, in their 145th season, will play before the biggest crowd in the history of the program.

But the Buckeyes have their own incentives. They’re seeking their 18th consecutive Big Ten win, which would put them just two behind the conference record set by Ohio State 2005-07.
