PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - If this had been an ordinary week, No. 23 Rutgers would simply be looking to bounce back from its first loss of the season.
But this hasn't been an ordinary week - or two - in New Jersey. And so while the Scarlet Knights (7-1) certainly want to get on the field and win again, no question, they also want to provide a little distraction from Superstorm Sandy for their state.
They'll get a chance to do both against Army (2-7) at High Point Solutions Stadium Saturday.
A 35-23 loss to Kent State two weeks ago preceded the superstorm by two days, and then this week, as Rutgers prepared for the Black Knights, a Nor'easter dumped more than a foot of snow in the region.
