Scarlet Knight Streaks

Current Streaks Entering the Norfolk State game on 9/15/07

15 -- Rutgers (#13 AP/ #13 Coaches) has now been nationally ranked in 15 consecutive polls, a school record.
9 -- The home winning streak, at nine games, is now the 6th longest in the country (after only USC, Louisville, Florida, LSU, and BC). After Saturday’s game, the current Knights could be halfway toward matching the record home-win streak of twenty games set when yours truly was a student On the Banks in the mid-Seventies.
5 -- Five straight games scoring 30 points or more.
5 -- Five straight games in which the offensive line has not allowed a sack.
5 – Ray Rice’s current streak of 100+ yard games (he shares the RU record of 7 straight games with J.J. Jennings).
3 -- Three straight Homecoming Day victories. The last Homecoming loss was to Pittsburgh in 2003.
2 – Ray Rice’s current streak of 1,000+ yard seasons. Could he be halfway to his third thousand-yard campaign after the third game of the 2007 season?

Hopefully, there has also been a DVD of the App State at Michigan game running in the lobby of the football locker room all week. Why in the deep recesses of my mind can I not let go of the fear of losing to these kinds of teams? Years of experience? Love the research and the button.

Go RU.

I would hope that the Scarlet Knights would never take a I-AA team lightly after their experience with New Hampshire a few years ago. You know Schiano remembers it.
I think the Cincinnati game last year taught all the current players about the importance of not looking past any opponent.
I know it's "only" Norfolk State, but I can't wait until Saturday to hit the Stadium.
What's the anticipation going to be like once we start playing Big East teams??
