Rutgers football sure has come a long way in a short time.
No long ago it was hard to give away tickets to a Scarlet Knights game. Now, seats for Thursday night's battle of unbeatens between the No. 15 Scarlet Knights and No. 3 Louisville are so scarce that even Gov. Jon S. Corzine appealed to athletic director Robert Mulcahy for an extra pair.
“He said, 'I'm sending a check,”' Mulcahy said.
The game is being billed as the biggest ever played by the school that was part of the first college football game in 1869.
