Due to the time conflict, Rutgers has moved up the tip-off of the basketball game to 3:00 p.m.
“We felt it was very important that our fans attending the basketball game also had the opportunity to watch the Russell Athletic Bowl against Virginia Tech,” Athletic Director Tim Pernetti said in a statement. “This is a significant day for Rutgers and we want all of our fans to enjoy it. Moving the basketball game involved logistical challenges, but it was the right decision for our fan base.”
