Rutgers is coming off a horribly disappointing loss at Pittsburgh, getting trounced 41-21, with one of their scores coming in garbage time and trailing just 21-14 at the half.
Meanwhile, USF is just coming off of a huge 30-38 upset win over Cincinnati, their first victory in three Big East games this season.
Rutgers currently sits at 4-3, with a 1-1 record in conference play. USF also has a record of 4-3, but is just 1-2 in conference play.
This is a pivotal make or break game for both teams. If Rutgers loses here, a Bowl game for the Knights is no longer a given, as they still have to face off against Louisville, Syracuse and West Virginia in 2010.
If USF loses here, their best hope would be for a no-name Bowl, as they would drop to 1-3 in conference play and would have to win out to even have a shot at a postseason birth.
With that being said, let us take a look at the biggest questions looming for RU heading into this game at Raymond James Stadium.
