Located in Piscataway, New Jersey the Rutgers Scarlet Knights are the collegiate athletic program that represents Rutgers University. Rutgers’ intercollegiate program, which is a member of the Big 10 Conference, has nine men’s and 13 women’s teams. Men’s teams include football, baseball, basketball, cross-country, golf, indoor and outdoor track, swimming, tennis and wrestling. Women’s teams include basketball, cross-country, field hockey, golf, gymnastics, lacrosse, rowing, soccer, softball, indoor and outdoor track, swimming and diving, soccer, tennis, and volleyball. Rutgers was one of the first American institutions to have intercollegiate athletics and regularly played against Yale, Columbia, and Princeton University. Despite Rutgers’ recent move to the Big 10 Conference, Princeton is still Rutgers’ biggest rival due to the close proximity of the two campuses. Rutgers has a long-standing football rivalry with Navy, which dates back to 1891. Rutgers and Navy came from the original, informal ‘Ivy League’.
Rutgers has only won one NCAA team National Championship; fencing in 1949. Rutgers, however, is known for being the “Birthplace of College Football” after hosting the first ever intercollegiate football game in November 1869 against Princeton. Rutgers has not had much success, though, as a football program. Rutgers has had problems keeping New Jersey’s best player in-state. A move to the Big 10 Conference in 2014, though, may solve Rutgers recruiting woes. Rutgers football team is best known for its 2006 season when it started 9-0. Rutgers was ranked as high as 7th in the AP and Coach’s poll before finishing the regular season with a 10-2 record and won its bowl game against Kansas State. Several notable NFL players, namely Ray Rice, Brian Leonard, and Tiquan Underwood played on this team. Rutgers’ women’s basketball team has been one of the most success programs in school history. Rutgers has made three Final Fours and won a few Big East Championships. Rutgers has a long-standing rivalry with the UCONN Huskies.

6-3-15: The Rutgers Scarlet Knights men's basketball team had a forgettable 2014-15 season, going just 10-22 and 2-16 in conference play. The team has failed to clinch a berth in the NCAA Tournament each year since 1991, and 15 consecutive losses over its final 15 games last season showed that the Scarlet Knights are still a ways away from breaking such a streak.
