Rutgers Head Coach Greg Schiano held his weekly press conference with the media in preparation for Friday afternoon’s Gator Bowl against Wake Forest.
The Scarlet Knights (5-7) earned the trip to Jacksonville, Florida after Texas A&M had to bow out due to a COVID-19 outbreak on that football team. Rutgers was among five candidates for the game, and got the spot thanks in major part to the program’s Academic Progress Rate.
The Scarlett Knights will face the Demon Deacons for only the third time in football program history when they collide at 11 a.m., December 31.
Remember to listen to the complete live broadcast of the game Friday morning beginning at 9:30 a.m. with Rutgers GameDay on 93.5 FM, 1450 AM, Fox Sports New Jersey.
