SCHEDULE UPROAR. Howard out! Fresno State in! September 27 still TBA!

Now the Rutgers football season is opening on Labor Day, with a game at R House against Fresno State (after they were dropped by Kansas State) at 4:30 on a Monday afternoon. This will begin a home-and-home series between the two schools, so the Scarlet Knights will travel to California in 2012. Here's the Fresno State Bulldogs article and a Fresno Bee article about this schedule change.

The game against Howard on August 30th has been removed from the schedule (I'll miss Howard's band!). September 27th is still a question mark, but with Howard off the schedule, it seems likely that 9/27 may see another team from the Football Championship Subdivision visiting the Banks of the Raritan in their place.

Here's the current schedule, with home games highlighted in, of course, Scarlet:

  • Monday, September 1 - FRESNO STATE
    Thursday, September 11 -NORTH CAROLINA
    Saturday, September 20 at Navy
    Saturday, September 27 - TBA
    Saturday, October 4 at West Virginia
    Saturday, October 11 at Cincinnati
    Saturday, October 18 - CONNECTICUT
    Saturday, October 25 at Pittsburgh
    Saturday, November 8 - SYRACUSE
    Saturday, November 15 at South Florida
    Saturday, November 22 - ARMY
    Thursday, December 4 - LOUISVILLE

(Oh, and the Gridiron Bash with FallOut Boy for April 18th has been canceled too -- and moved to an undisclosed date in the fall. This does not affect the Scarlet-White Game on April 19th.)
