The Knights won five of their last six games. 2) Rutgers always shows up for the bowls even again inferior competition. The Scarlet Knights have won their last three bowl games. 3) Rutgers is second in the nation in tackles for loss. The defense on both sides will be aggressive.
And Why You Should Spend Your Time Roasting Your Chestnuts: Rutgers finished the season 99th in total offense, UCF finished 84th. Neither one lights up the scoreboard except against miserable Ds.
