The Scarlet Knights are looking to improve to 5-0 for the first time since 1976. Rutgers is 1-0 in Big East play so far and is looking to avenge a loss last year to the Huskies that spoiled their chances at ending the season as Big East co-champions.

SB Nation New York says Rutgers is going to have to rely heavily upon its top-notch defense to pull out this grudge match. The Huskies only score 23.2 points a game, good for 98th in the nation, but the last two meetings between the two in New Jersey have been decided by a mere five points.

The Huskies, meanwhile, are looking to snap a seven-game losing streak against ranked teams that dates back to 2007. The Huskies beat No. 11 South Florida on Oct. 27, 2007, their only victory over a ranked opponent since entering Division I football in 2000.

Game time, TV channel: 12 p.m. ET, ESPNU

Point spread: Rutgers is currently favored by 7.5 points.
