rutgers university's football team was known for a long time as an exercise in futility.
no longer. they came out of oblivion and from behind and beat third-ranked university of louisville 28-25 yesterday. . .and they did it in front of a stadium record 44,111 home-field crowd in piscataway, nj. . .and in prime time in front of a national tv audience.
they are now one of four remaining undefeated teams, and are now in first place in the big east conference.
the empire state building was lit last night
in red in support of the LU v RU game
futility? methinks not.
