The Scarlet Faithful Game Week Coverage

Get ready leading up to kickoff for Rutgers-Virginia Tech with all of our coverage from this week.

The availability report has been released at 1:30 p.m. ET (2 hours before kickoff). My quick thoughts are here.

I will also link a post for live commentary and reader comments throughout the Rutgers-Virginia Tech game before kickoff here.

There are plenty of storylines entering the first game of the 2023 season for this program, but there are eight that I think are most important.

Here are four predictions for Rutgers vs. Virginia Tech  including my prediction for the game.

I spoke with Tim Thomas of the The Tech Lunch Pail about the strengths and weaknesses of the Hokies.

Friday’s The Scarlet Faithful podcast focused on the keys to victory for Rutgers against Virginia Tech.

The pass offense of Temple vs. the pass defense of Rutgers is what I believe is the key matchup of the game.

Injuries are an issue for Virginia Tech ahead of Saturday’s game. Hokies head coach Brent Pry gave updates both on Tuesday and Wednesday on the status of certain starters.

This was a good time to remember one of the wildest games in Rutgers football history, the 50-49 Halloween Homecoming game.

Even though the defense has been very good so far through two games, Schiano spoke about expecting more from this unit.

Through two games, has the progress of Rutgers football met or exceeded expectations.

Schiano spoke about the importance of the offense to continue to make strides each week. Wimsatt might be helped by the running backs, both their depth and being a threat in the passing game.
