MSU-Rutgers game postponed by blizzard

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights had planned for a "black out" Tuesday night, encouraging fans to all wear black to the basketball game against Michigan State.

Instead, it’s turned into a "white out."

Literally.

The potentially historic snowstorm headed for the East Coast has forced the postponement of the MSU-Rutgers game in Piscataway, N.J.

The Spartans got the news Monday afternoon about an hour before they were supposed to leave Lansing on a chartered flight after moving up the departure time in hopes of getting to New Jersey before the storm hit.

The game has been rescheduled for Thursday at 6 p.m. and will be televised by the Big Ten Network.

Rutgers confirmed the postponement with an announcement released on Twitter.
