In 1991, history was made by the Rutgers Scarlet Knights and the Boston College Eagles. In the first ever Big East football game… the Scarlet Knights defeated the Eagles, 20-13, before a crowd of 22,185 spectators at Rutgers Stadium.
There was a lot of Promise in those first two seasons… (sigh)
1991: 6-5 (2-3) beat BC, Northwestern, Michigan State
1992: 7-4 (4-2) beat Pitt, VT, and West Virginia
