Catch a Scarlet Knights football game and help people still recovering from Hurricane Sandy on Rutgers Day.

Admission to the Scarlet-White spring football game remains free for everyone, but all Rutgers fans can make a $5 donation to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund upon entering High Point Solutions Stadium on the Busch Campus on Rutgers Day. Kickoff is at 3 p.m.

The Scarlet Knights will wear special ‘R strong’ helmets and jerseys including the names of 90 New Jersey towns that were affected by Hurricane Sandy. The jerseys will be signed by Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood and presented to each town over the summer.

“R strong” gear for the Scarlet- White game on Rutgers Day.

Before the scrimmage, two teams of former Rutgers football players will take the field for the third annual Believe Bowl, an exhibition flag football game to raise awareness and support for spinal cord research at the university. The game is played annually in honor of Eric LeGrand, who suffered a severe spinal injury and became paralyzed while making a tackle in an October 2010 game against the Army Black Knights.

Former Scarlet Knights football players, including current NFL stars, will be present to sign autographs before the Believe Bowl. Stick around after the Scarlet-White football game and get autographs from our current players.

Fans who can’t make it to the stadium may view the game live via ScarletKnights.com or tune into Rutgers Radio Network – WOR 710 AM in New York City, WCTC 1450 AM in Central New Jersey and 97.5 FM The Fanatic in Philadelphia and South Jersey – for game calls by LeGrand, Chris Carlin, Ray Lucas and Anthony Fucilli.
