Rutgers to hold 2 PM EST press conference to announce they're joining the Big Ten

Much like the Big Ten conference did yesterday for Maryland, Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, will hold a press conference Tuesday afternoon with Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany to announce their plans to become the 14th member of the storied football conference. The Big Ten Network will begin coverage of the event at 1:45 PM EST and will also stream the event live on their BTN2Go service.

While Rutgers is having arguably their best football season in recent memory (they presently sit at 9-1 with their lone loss coming at the hand of former Ohio State wide receivers coach Darrell Hazell's Kent State Golden Flashes), they don't add a ton in terms of football pedigree beyond the last decade. The architect of that success, Greg Schiano, has also moved on to the greener pastures of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the NFL. None the less, Kyle Flood's done a tremendous job and as was noted yesterday, were Rutgers a member of the Big Ten in the previous recruiting cycle, they would've had the 3rd best recruiting class in the entire conference.
