Rutgers focus on Big East title, not Big 10
November 23, 2012
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Rutgers has been playing football for more than 140 years. Few games, however, have carried the importance of Saturday's trip to Pittsburgh.
The 21st-ranked Scarlet Knights (9-1, 5-0 Big East) can clinch at least a share of the Big East title if they can beat the Panthers (4-6, 1-4) and can win it outright if they win and No. 19 Louisville loses to Connecticut.
Coach Kyle Flood says the stakes should help his team block out the distraction of the program's move to the Big Ten in 2014. The school announced its intentions this week.
The stakes aren't quite as high for Pitt, though the Panthers say they're focused on winning their final two games to become bowl eligible for a fifth straight season.
