Rutgers University will hold a press conference Tuesday afternoon. The school will be announcing who will own the naming rights to Rutgers Stadium. The Scarlet Knights will be the fifth Big East school to play in a stadium that has sold off their naming rights.

Pittsburgh, South Florida, Louisville, and Syracuse are the previous four. Pittsburgh and South Florida do play in NFL stadiums, however.

It was about a year ago this month when Rutgers athletic director Tim Pernetti and the school had hired a company to assist them in finding interested parties. It now appears they have a taker and have come to an agreement.

Do you have any thoughts on Rutgers giving away naming rights? Any predictions on what the name may be?
