What to Know

The Wagner Seahawks will square off against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights at 4 p.m. ET Saturday at SHI Stadium. RU will be strutting in after a win while the Seahawks will be stumbling in from a loss.

The contest between Wagner and the Fordham Rams last Thursday was not a total blowout, but with Wagner falling 48-31 at home, it was darn close to turning into one.

Meanwhile, RU dodged a bullet last week, finishing off the Boston College Eagles 22-21. RU's RB Al-Shadee Salaam filled up the stat sheet, punching in one rushing touchdown.

The Scarlet Knights' defense was a presence as well, as it collected two interceptions and two fumbles. The picks came courtesy of DB Robert Longerbeam and DB Christian Braswell.

Wagner's defeat took them down to 0-1 while Rutgers' victory pulled them up to 1-0. Wagner's offensive line will need to gear up for a tough test against an RU defensive front that amassed four sacks against BC, so we'll see if they are up to the task.
