2005 - Last time Rutgers beat Cincy (score 44 to 9). Also last time South Florida beat us (score 31 to 45).

1994 - Last time Rutgers beat WVU. Score was 17 to 12.

1992 - Rutgers went 7-4 and didn't go to a bowl game. We beat Virginia Tech 50 to 49. We also beat West Virginia 13 to 9.

1991 - Rutgers went 6-5 and didn't go to a bowl game. This was also the last year we beat BC 20 to 13.

1988 - Rutgers beat Penn State 21 to 16.

1987 - Rutgers went 6-5 and no bowl game.

There's a lot more but it's before I was born.

Most notably 1961 and 1976 Rutgers went undefeated. In 1985 Rutgers tied Florida 28 to 28 (that season Florida went on to a 9-1-1 record with a 20 to 0 shut out against LSU). Also 1978 was the Garden State Bowl (first bowl ever) and that year we beat Columbia 69 to 0 (largest margin of victory for Rutgers ever). From 1958 to 1968 Rutgers were Middle Three Conference Champions. What a streak! Rutgers holds 32 conference championships in total.
