Notre Dame and Rutgers will “play ball” when they face off in the Pinstripe Bowl (Saturday, 12 p.m. ET, ESPN) at Yankee Stadium. Both Notre Dame (8-4) and Rutgers (6-6) took a step backward in 2013 after strong 2012 seasons. The Fighting Irish had an unbelievable 2012 season, going 12-0 before getting throttled in the national title game against Alabama. Rutgers started the 2012 season 7-0 before finishing the season 2-4. Neither team could match its win total from the year before in 2013, but a win Saturday could get one team off on the right foot as they head into 2014.

While neither team had great 2013 seasons, both have talent headed to the 2014 NFL draft, though Notre Dame’s roster has more overall talent.


Prospect Preview: Rutgers v. Pitt

Friday, October 7th, 2011


WR Mohamed Sanu will look to lead the Scarlet Knights to a victory and Big East lead on Saturday

A Big East battle is brewing on Saturday and its got some huge conference implications. Pittsburgh has the superior set of talent on paper but they don’t play the game on paper. Whoever wins this game will take a 2-0 conference lead and that could page huge dividends come later in the season. I think Rutgers has the best prosepct in this game but Pitt will make fewer mistakes. The Panthers roll in this one.
