The Scarlet Knights get a night game following a bye week as they prepare to pull off a giant upset here in Week 6. Rutgers comes in trying to shock the nation and knock off the #3 Spartans. While the task is obviously going to be extremely tough, the home crowd will be rocking.

The Scarlet Knights were led by QB Chris Laviano who threw for a pair of touchdowns on 18 of 25 passing. Laviano hooked up with 9 different receivers in his 18 completions.
The pair of receivers catching Laviano’s touchdowns were Carlton Agudosi and Matt Flanagan. Laviavo also threw for a pair of interceptions in the win.
As far as their running game is concerned, Rutgers had a pair of 100 yard rushers. RBs Josh Hicks and Robert Martin ran for 113 and 102 yards, respectively, as the duo helped Rutgers control the clock.
