Rutgers Spring Game 2018 (Photo: Jim McCoy, 247Sports)

The 2018 Rutgers football season opens up on September 1 with a home game against Texas State. From there, the Scarlet Knights face what might be their most formidable task of the season when they travel out to Columbus to take on the Ohio State Buckeyes.

After the clash with Urban Meyer’s squad, Rutgers faces 6 opponents that preseason observers would consider challenging, but winnable games (Kansas, Buffalo, Indiana, Illinois, Maryland, Northwestern). The home stretch features 4 proverbial B1G powers. The Scarlet Knights close out the 2018 season with games against Wisconsin, Michigan, Penn State, and Michigan State.

As we continue to move toward the home opener, it is clear that we need a dedicated page to post essential links and showcase our season previews. Please take a moment to bookmark it, as it will continue to expand as we add new previews and features.
