Last month BC added a series with Rutgers. Tuesday they added two more games to the deal. BC will go to New Jersey in 2019 and host Rutgers in 2022.
When the first part of the deal was announced in December, I criticized BC for not taking bigger scheduling risks, especially with the games being so far out (2026 and 2027). These two new games are much closer and make more sense. We want to recruit New Jersey. This keeps us in the area. Plus, right now Rutgers looks like a winnable Big Ten game. We also have a good fan population in the area who will go to the game. It is smart scheduling.
Because we have a series of games on the books now with Rutgers, this also gives us some flexibility should something else come up. If a new coach comes in or we get really good and ESPN wants to place us in a special game, having a larger series with Rutgers allows for movement with their and our schedule. Not a bad thing. Let's hope ultimately this leads to four Ws.
