PISCATAWAY, N.J. (March 13, 2014) – Rutgers has added a home-and-home series with Pac-12 member Washington beginning in 2016 along with moving the UCLA series to 2020-21, Rutgers Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Julie Hermann announced today.
Rutgers and UCLA were originally scheduled to play in 2016-17, but the series was moved back to allow the Scarlet Knights to have seven home games in each of those respective seasons.
Rutgers travels to Seattle to face Washington on September 3, 2016 to begin the season. The Huskies travel to High Point Solutions Stadium on September 2 to open the 2017 season in Piscataway. The two schools have never met on the gridiron.
With the Washington series set, Rutgers and UCLA have pushed back their original two-game series from 2016-17 to 2020-21. Rutgers visits the Rose Bowl on September 5 to open the 2020 campaign, while the Bruins make the return trip east to High Point Solutions Stadium on September 11, 2021.
Rutgers’ 2017 schedule is now complete as Eastern Michigan visits on September 16, while the Scarlet Knights host Morgan State on September 9. The 2016 schedule is still one game from being complete as Washington and Howard (September 10) are already officially confirmed.
