Rutgers-Connecticut becoming a Big East rivalry
Rutgers and Connecticut is quickly becoming a Big East
Forget that the universities are located a bus ride from each
other, or that Rutgers’ Greg Schiano and Connecticut Randy Edsall
frequently recruit the same high school players, or that a lot of
the players know each other.
Just look at the last couple of games between the schools. The
closeness makes the rivalry simmer.
The Scarlet Knights (2-2) will be taking a two-game losing
streak into Friday night’s conference opener at Rutgers Stadium
against those Huskies (3-2).
