What they're saying about Rutgers football, Aug. 27
Before we get to the links, an interesting tweet yesterday from an ESPN.com Pac-12 reporter:
Moos said WSU wanted to play the game on Saturday, but Rutgers would only agree to the series if it was a weekday game.Bonagura also said the game would have to be played at Seattle's CenturyLink Field, not at Washington State's Pullman campus.

Rutgers said it had no stipulations on the home-and-home series when it announced it more than a year ago. Clearly something's got to give.
