PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Winning in the Big Ten Conference hasn't been easy for Rutgers, except when it comes to Indiana.
In two-plus years in the conference, the Scarlet Knights (2-6, 0-5) have posted a 4-17 record in the league. They won three times in 2014, once the following year and none this year under new coach Chris Ash.
Indiana (4-4, 2-3) is the common thread in the wins. Rutgers beat the Hoosiers 45-23 at High Point Solutions Stadium two years ago and rallied from a 25-point deficit last year in Bloomington to post a 55-52 victory in a game that featured 1,223 combined yards of total offense.
Coming off a bye week, Rutgers will try to snap a five-game losing streak and make it three in a row over the Hoosiers when they meet on Saturday.
"For us, we don't focus on jersey names and logos," Ash said. "It's all about going out and playing the best that we can play. We don't talk about wins and losses, it's about what it's going to take to win." >> Read more
