Pinstripe Bowl 2011: Rutgers Likely To Face Texas Or Iowa State, According To Report

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights will be the second New York-ish team to play in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl, according to CBS Sports' Brett McMurphy. Their Big 12 opponent is yet to be determined, but McMurphy cites the Texas Longhorns and Iowa St. Cyclones as potential foes.

Iowa State would make sense, but that would be quite a tumble for the Horns. It would be interesting to see both the Missouri Tigers and Texas A&M Aggies get to play closer to home while Texas gets sent to Yankee Stadium, considering those schools are leaving the Big 12. There'd been some talk of the Big 12 pushing for others to get taken ahead of the two SEC defectors.

Game date, time: 3:20 pm ET, Friday, December 30th

Location:Yankee Stadium, New York, NY

TV channel: ESPN

2010 winner and loser: Syracuse, Kansas State
