  • PISCATAWAY, N.J. (November 27, 2012) – The world-famous Empire State Building (ESB) will be lit red Thursday night in support of Rutgers’ BIG EAST Championship football game vs. Louisville at High Point Solutions Stadium. It marks the second time the Empire State Building has been lit red for Rutgers Football. The other occasion was Rutgers’ 28-25 victory over Louisville in 2006 in a matchup of undefeated teams.

    No. 25 Rutgers (9-2, 5-1 BIG EAST), which has already secured its first share of the BIG EAST Championship in school history, can claim the league title outright with a win over the Cardinals. A victory would also send Rutgers to its first BCS Bowl – most likely the Discover Orange or Allstate Sugar Bowl.

    A limited amount of tickets remain for Thursday’s game and are available at ScarletKnights.com or by calling the Rutgers Fan Relationship Management Center at 1-866-445-GORU.
