KNOW THY OPPONENT


• Rutgers was originally chartered as Queen’s College on January 9, 1766. It is the eighth-oldest college in the United States and one of the nine colonial colleges chartered before the American Revolution.

• The college was renamed Rutgers College in 1825 in honor of Colonel Henry Rutgers.

• Rutgers has three campuses located throughout New Jersey: New Brunswick campus in New Brunswick and adjacent Piscataway, the Newark campus, and the Camden campus.

• Rutgers College became the land-grant college of New Jersey in 1864 under the Morrill Act of 1862, resulting in the establishment of the Rutgers Scientific School, featuring departments of agriculture, engineering, and chemistry.

• It was at Rutgers that Selman Waksman (1888–1973) discovered several antibiotics, including actinomycin, clavacin, streptothricin and grisein. Waksman, along with graduate student Albert Schatz (1920–2005), discovered streptomycin—a versatile antibiotic that was to be the first applied to cure tuberculosis. For this discovery, Waksman received the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1952.

• In the past three-plus seasons, only two Power 5 teams (Oklahoma and Oklahoma State) have averaged more yards per game than Ohio State (524.5).

• Ohio State’s defense has produced 19 takeaways this year (11 INTs, eight fumble recoveries) and scored 14 times on the ensuing possessions (including one “pick six” by Damon Arnette vs. Indiana).

• Ohio State is the first Big Ten team to start the season with nine wins by 20 or more points since the 1973 season. That year, the Woody Hayes-led Buckeyes pulled off the feat on their way to a 10-0-1 record and Rose Bowl win against USC.

• Justin Fields’ 37 touchdowns accounted for through nine games is four ahead of the pace last year by Heisman Trophy finalist Dwayne Haskins.

• Ohio State has scored 21 or more points in the second quarter in seven of the last eight games and outgained its opponents 1,743-414, a margin of 1,329 yards.
