Rutgers Vs. Army: Scarlet Knights Play Non-Conference Game At Yankee Stadium

In the heat of conference play, the Rutgers University football program will take a weekend to play a special non-conference game Saturday afternoon against Army at Yankee Stadium (3:30 p.m. on CBS Sports Network). The contests, which comes during Veterans Day weekend, will be the last non-conference match up for the Scarlet Knights (6-3, 3-2 Big East Conference) and their first visit to Yankee Stadium since 1948.

"It's going to be a great atmosphere," said Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano. " When we decided that we were going to play this game at Yankee Stadium, as a kid growing up, I'm very excited.  I was a Yankee fan in Yankee Stadium and all the things that go with it, and now to be playing a traditional team like Army and playing them at Yankee Stadium is something that is exciting for me and for our football team."

Last week, Rutgers overcame a 17-3 to defeat the University of South Florida, 20-13, in overtime to become bowl eligible for the sixth time in seven seasons and stay in the Big East title race.

Sophomore quarterback Chas Dodd came off the bench to help kick start the comeback. Dodd, who hadn't played significant playing minutes since Week 4, completed 11-of-17 passes for 125 yards with one touchdown. The performance helped Dodd earn his fourth start of the season Saturday.

Another surprise this weekend will feature the Scarlet Knights helmets.
