It has been an unprecedented time for the Rutgers football program as the COVID-19 pandemic has provided a major shakeup into the world of college football. The Scarlet Knights were originally set to begin the 2020 season against Monmouth, although that changed to a 10-game season which featured Nebraska as the first opponent of the year. However, that schedule was quickly wiped away as the fall season was cancelled because of concerns over the coronavirus pandemic and how the conference could safely navigate through a season.

Additionally, the Big Ten Conference has been grabbing headlines, but not always for the most appealing reasons. During a time in which training camp would be winding down, we take a look at the latest in what has been an unusual and unprecedented year for college football.
