That’s where the score stood when Rutgers, officially the visiting team (as we were continously reminded, though we did not know it when we arrived), blocked a punt and returned it for a touchdown. The Knights (the visiting ones) cashed a late long run in for another score and a 27-12 final.
The Metro North trip to and from the game was as seamless and convenient as usual, although the train was a bit more empty. And three years (and about 150 games) into our experience in the new Yankee Stadium, we received access to the Jim Beam Suite at halftime for the very first time.
Rutgers takes the field at Yankee Stadium, going on to a 27-12 win over Army. 7-3 and bowl-bound…
Kudos to the West Point cadets, whose enthusiasm for their slightly overmatched team was infectious, and to the many Rutgers fans in attendance as well. The weather was fine, and a dazzling, red, almost full moon paid a visit in the fourth period. It looked a little like a pigskin that had eluded the players and escaped from the game, as it soared over the left field wall.
