Big Ten football brings Rutgers a challenging but rewarding opportunity Saturday when the Scarlet Knights return to SHI Stadium in Piscataway, New Jersey for Week 5's 3:30 p.m. ET game against Ohio State. Second-year head coach Greg Schiano embraces a chance to face the No. 11 Buckeyes (3-1, 1-0) after Rutgers (3-1, 0-1) lost 20-13 this past Saturday at then-No. 19 Michigan.

Rutgers nearly upset the physical Wolverines (4-0, 1-0) despite a key loss on the offense line in junior right guard Reggie Sutton, who suffered a season-ending injury last week, Schiano confirmed Monday.

"I think that our guys, they really strain incredibly hard over time," Schiano said this past Saturday. "And as a coach, that's all you can ask for, you know? We call it 'chop.'
