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).
