College Football lives here

Section 121: That is where I sat to witness the greatest college football game in the history of New Jersey. On Thursday night, Rutgers made fans all over American as they kept beating up the 'ville offense.

But the story of the RU success goes back longer. Four years ago, a group of friends and I decided to go and see Miami take on Rutgers. At the time stadium was 3/4 full, but something was different, Rutgers held the lead late in the fourth quarter until Miami scores something like 21 points in six minutes to win. On that day you could tell that this program was heading in the right direction and on Thursday night with all of American watching, the once laughing stock of college football, showed the country that wow northeasters can rally behind a college football team.

As a person that has been to the Rutgers Stadium a bunch of times, to see it look like that was something that I never thought would happen.
