    Their "signature win" is against Cincy, which was their only win against a team with a winning record in a BCS conference

    Sagarin's Predictor rankings, which come pretty close to the opening line for most games, would have Rutgers as one-point favorites at a neutral location. My guess would be that it'll start about Rutgers -2 or -3, given that it's going to be much more of a home game for Rutgers than it is for us.

    But hey, it's not as though we're not used to being the underdog...

    Re: Scouting Rutgers

    so more of a defensive team this year. They have a pro style balanced offense if they haven't changed(I haven't watched them at all this year). They did lose to UCONN who we beat while playing a poor game on offense. I'm guessing it will be a pretty competitive game, can't wait.

    Re: Scouting Rutgers

    Rutgers offense:
    Code:
    Team	 Pts/G	 Yds/G	 PassYds RushYds 1stD/G	 3rdM	 3rdD%	 4thM	 4thD%	 Pen  PenYds
    Rutgers	 26.3	 336.5	 2940	 1098	 19.9	 72	 38.1	 9	 56.3	 83   546
    Matching up against our total D of:
    Code:
    Team	 Pts/G	 Yds/G	 PassYds RushYds Int IntTD
    Iowa St. 29.6	 432.3	 2846	 2342	 11  1
    Passing D:
    Code:
    Team	 Att/G	 Comp/G	 Pct	 PassYds Y/G	 TD   Int 
    Iowa St. 33.4	 19.0	 56.9	 2846	 237.2	 16   11
    And rushing D:
    Code:
     Team	 Rush	 RushYds  Avg	 Rush/G	 Y/G	 TD		
    Iowa St. 512	 2342	  4.6	 42.7	 195.2	 21

    There offensive yardage is almost 3/4 through the air. My guess is we play nickel for most if not all of the game. Their main weapon is this guy:

    Mohamed Sanu, who has 109 receptions for 1144 yards. He has gone over 100 yards recieving in 7 games this season. If LJ can shut him down they don't have many other offensive options.

    On the ground the go to this guy:

    Jawan Jamison, who has 204 carries for 706 yards this season. He had a breakout game against Cincy for 200 yards.

    Good point. Here are the predictor ratings

    Rutgers : 75.45
    Iowa State: 74.33

    Massey gives us the edge though

    Re: Scouting Rutgers

    It'll be close. I like the match up. Line should be pretty close with either being favored by 1.5 or so.

    Even though it's essentially a road game, I like our chances.

    Re: Scouting Rutgers

    LJ on Sanu is going to be the key matchup of the game. Weather could play a factor as well, with the game being late December in New York. A snow game plays to our favor.

    Re: Scouting Rutgers

    Rutgers rush D was last in the Big East, but only allowed about 145 a game. Its not bad. Only faced about 37 carries a game on average though...that's not a huge number.

    Rutgers were tops in big east with Pass defense only allowing about 170 a game and had about 17 INT. Teams only attempted about 26 passes a game vs them. Not a high total, but that's a lot of picks.

    Based off their totals and the other B.E. teams, there's not a lot of offense going on in that conference. Offensively its WVU and S. Florida and then everyone else. The 2nd most YPG in the Big East would rank 8th in the Big 12....1 yard ahead of ISU.

    Re: Scouting Rutgers

    methinks that we should run jet tempo in them with a lot of read option and pistol/diamond, get a bunch of carries against them lj will shut down senu and then just let knott and co take care of the rest

    Re: Scouting Rutgers

    They have already played a game this year at Yankee Stadium, so that will be a big advantage and they will probably practice for the bowl at Rutgers.

    I think we could end up being bigger underdogs than we think because a lot of East coast people will bet Rutgers.
