Michigan - Rutgers week: 5 memorable plays against the Big East

Submitted by egrfree2rhyme on October 26th, 2017 at 10:53 AM

We don't have much history with Rutgers, so I decided to make a video of memorable plays by Michigan against Rutgers' former conference (the Big East). People who are inclined to complain that I didn't include whatever play they were hoping for may want to consider this a video of "forgotten" or "overlooked" plays.

Go Blue!

Thank you for posting. A lot of this brings back great memories. The team is gonna kick ass and take names the next few weeks and get us back on track for a nice end to the season.

From 1998 to 2003 you had Miami, Virginia Tech, Syracuse when McNabb was there.  Those were some very good to elite-level football teams.

The ACC made their raid in 2004, and yes there were some far-from-elite teams like Pittsburgh 2004 and Connecticut 2010 that made BCS games. 

But even including them, the Big East still went 6-4 from 2004-2013 in BCS games.  WVU 2005, Louisville 2006, WVU 2007, WVU 2011, Louisville 2012 and UCF 2013 were the winners.

I think ripping on the Big East of that era is a bit unfair.  The real "loser conference" of the BCS era was the ACC.  5-13 in their 18 BCS games.

You forgot the Rutgers fans cheering after their 1st first down of the game last year. Probably the most memorable play in sports history. One of those moments where you tear up a little.

Hoke dropped two in a row to these guys right? Those were my last years in the City with no children and I was mostly Yager bombed out of my mind or four fingers of scotch deep for those 2013-14 games.
