The Rutgers Scarlet Knights and the Iowa State Cyclones will meet in the 2011 Pinstripe Bowl. The Bowl is a bit of a home game for the Scarlet Knights, roughly 30-minutes away from where linebacker Khaseem Greene grew up as a kid. "I'm a Jersey kid, but I've never really experienced New York," Greene told the Associated Press. "It's always an honor to play in that stadium. It was great to be there once, but now we're going to be up there for a week, and to play a great opponent in Iowa State, it's just going to be a lot of fun."
The Scarlet Knights will be looking to pick up their fifth consecutive bowl win and it could come traveling the shortest distance. "Playing here at home in New York gives a lot of our fans, who maybe can't always afford to travel to a bowl game, the opportunity to experience a bowl game at a much more reasonable expense," coach Greg Schiano said. "It is going to be a great opportunity for our players."
