Start practicing your RU-RAH-RAHs!
Rutgers football alumni will be returning to their alma mater for a flag football game in honor of injured player Eric LeGrand on Rutgers Day.
The first annual Believe Bowl will kick off at 1 p.m. at Rutgers Stadium, highlighting a day packed with activities for sports fans. The players’ graduation dates range from 2010 all the way back to 1987. (That’s when I was born!)
Don’t miss a chance to come early when NFL players who played at Rutgers will sign autographs from 12-12:45 p.m.
Among the confirmed NFL Knights who will be signing autographs include Gary Brackett and Eric Foster of the Indianapolis Colts, Kevin Haslam and Tiquan Underwood of the Jacksonville Jaguars along with Ray Rice (Baltimore Ravens), Brian Leonard (Cincinnati Bengals), Jamaal Westerman (New York Jets), Devin McCourty (New England Patriots), Jason McCourty (Tennessee Titans), Jeremy Zuttah (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), Ryan D’Imperio (Minnesota Vikings) and Kevin Brock (Oakland Raiders). Additional players could be added to the day’s list of attendees.
The current Scarlet Knights will take the field at 3 p.m. for the annual Scarlet-White game, followed by a post-game autograph session on the field.
While admission is free to the Believe Bowl and Scarlet-White game, fans are encouraged to donate to Rutgers Spinal Cord Research.
Visitors can also try on athletic equipment, test out their skills at a mini combine, and participate in numerous children’s activities. Don’t miss a chance to see soccer, basketball, cheerleading, and dance in action as well. Check the schedule for more details.
