Rutgers Football standing out academically once again

Just like last year, it looks like Rutgers football will be number one in the Big East yet again . . . in Academic Performance Rankings (APRs).
According to this article in USA Today today, only seven major-conference college football programs were cited by the NCAA on Thursday for their high academic scores:
Duke, Rice, Rutgers, Stanford, Air Force, Army, & Navy.
Not only is our alma mater one of only four non-service academies on this list, and the only Big East university, but it's also the only state university on this list from a sport that is dominated by state universities.
Congratulations to all the students, coaches, faculty, and staff who make this happen!
