A few Rutgers updates

We will get you some in-depth analysis on these events in the coming days, but here's what went down in the realm of Rutgers basketball and football so far this weekend.

1. The RU women's basketball team lost a tough one at Cal 66-52. The squad never really found the flow of the game and trailed wire-to-wire. The Scarlet Knights (2-1) play at Stanford today at 4 p.m.

2. The Scarlet Knights men's basketball team defeated Robert Morris 69-55 Friday night at the RAC. Freshman Mike Rosario poured in 27 points for Rutgers, the most by a RU freshman since Quincy Douby's 35 in the 2004 NIT semifinals. RU (3-0) hosts Saint Bonaventure today at 2 p.m. in Piscataway.

3. Rutgers football is bowl eligible after a 1-5 start, following a resounding 30-3 defeat of Army at frigid Rutgers Stadium yesterday. The Scarlet Knights (6-5) can lock up a fourth-straight bowl invitation if they can defeat Louisville on Thurs. Dec. 4. It will mark the first time the Cardinals return to Piscataway since the infamous Nov. 9, 2006 matchup that put Rutgers football on the map.

Off to the RAC for Day #3 of Dominic Cheek's official visit to Rutgers... the Bonnies have a lot of talent, so they should be a solid test for the Scarlet Knights.
