Rutgers Football: What to Watch for vs. Syracuse

Syracuse (2-3, 1-0 Big East) will travel to Piscataway to face No. 20 Rutgers (5-0, 2-0 Big East) on Saturday as the teams are set to face off for the last time as Big East rivals.

Will the Scarlet Knights improve to 6-0 or will Syracuse spoil Rutgers' party once again? 

Syracuse won their first Big East game of the year last week when they defeated Pittsburgh in the Carrier Dome. It was SU's first win against an FBS opponent since they upset West Virginia last season.

Meanwhile, Rutgers is 5-0 for the first time since 2006. They are coming off of a 19-3 win over UConn in a game that was not as close as the score might indicate. 

The last time Rutgers cracked the AP's Top 25 was in 2009. One week after they stormed into the poll with a 7-2 record, they lost to the Orange in the Carrier Dome.

First year head coach Kyle Flood will look to keep history from repeating itself as Rutgers attempts to give Syracuse a fond farewell from the Big East conference.
