Rutgers continues to be around the cusp of victories in the latter games – the Scarlet Knights just could not emerge using the victory either time.
Their next opportunity to earn victory and snap 4-game losing streak can come Saturday against Purdue at Ross-Ade Stadium in West Lafayette, Ind.
It will not be simple. The Boilermakers lead the large Ten in passing yards per game with 320.8. Mike Plummer, who began a week ago after beginning quarterback Aidan O’Connell had endured an injuries, put for 367 yards in Purdue’s loss to Minnesota a week ago.
The Boilermakers also had wide receiver Rondale Moore back after he missed the very first three games due to injuries and that he had 15 catches for 116 yards.
This is an evaluation for Rutgers’ defense.
The Scarlet Knights are wishing they are able to obtain a lead, which time keep it.

Without doubt Rutgers requires a victory and it has performed well in the last couple of games, but Purdue’s a good team with probably the most explosive offenses within the Big Ten, including Moore. The Scarlet Knights’ secondary, that has been sporadic, is going to be tested. This may be another close loss for Rutgers. Purdue 30, Rutgers 27

What’s clearly been established is the fact that Rutgers is more preferable, and coached than at any time recently. They are competitive and fun to look at. The issue now’s when will that result in victories. Not, but soon. Purdue 27, Rutgers 17.

Despite their 1-4 record, provide the Scarlet Knights credit as a competitive team within the Big Ten this year. This is among individuals games that Rutgers truly has an opportunity of winning. They’ll listen to it close, but regrettably, can come up just short again. Purdue 24, Rutgers 20

George W. Plant was president the final time a Rutgers team coached by Greg Schiano began a season 1-4 (2002). I do not like where this year goes. Purdue 24, Rutgers 10

All of Purdue’s games this year happen to be made the decision by seven points or fewer. The Boilermakers got conned a week ago whenever a phantom pass interference was known as on their own winning touchdown within the finish zone. Rutgers hangs inside, but suffers another close loss. Purdue 31, Rutgers 24
