Rutgers Gameday November 12, 2009; RU vs USF

Rutgers (6-2) meets South Florida (6-2) in Piscataway, New Jersey in BIG EAST action tonight at 7:30, televised nationally on ESPN. RU is 1-2 in BIG EAST play, USF is 2-2. Both teams are coming off bye weeks following wins.

The weather will be a factor tonight. There is a powerful nor'easter off the Mid-Atlantic coast causing extensive damage in the Delmarva Peninsula and people are being told to evacuate Virginia Beach. There is a better than even chance that the storm will be churning up the coast during the game.

Gametime temperatures should be in the 40's with winds blowing in from the east/northeast at 15-25 MPH, with rain forecast.

Odds makers have South Florida as a one point favorite. With the inclimate weather I'd make Rutgers a one point favorite; northeastern guys will be playing Florida guys in conditions with wind chills in the upper 30's to low 40's.

Bring a thermos of coffee, a blanket, and a rain poncho.

I'll give my impressions of the game from my seat in Section 104 tomorrow.
