Rutgers has had a solid start to their 2009 season. They lost their first game 47-15 to No. 14 Cincinnati. Since then, there has been a new starting quarterback named and a three-game winning streak.
Rutgers is looking like they could become a nationally-ranked team. Even though the teams they have played the last couple of weeks are not top-notch, they have shown they can be a top 25 team.
On October 16, Rutgers will be playing Pittsburgh. If the Scarlet Knights play well against them, they may have a national ranking in sight. There are five key players that have to play well in order for this to happen.
