PISCATAWAY, N.J. (June 12, 2014) – The Rutgers University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics today announced title sponsors, giveaways and game themes for the 2014 football season, the Scarlet Knights’ inaugural campaign as members of the Big Ten Conference. The calendar currently features three exciting giveaway items, as well “Scarlet Saturday” versus Penn State (Sept. 13; 8 p.m.) and a “Blackout” against Michigan (Oct. 4; 7 p.m.).
AT&T will serve as the title sponsor for the game against Tulane (Sept. 27) and the first 5,000 fans in attendance will receive Scarlet Knight bobbleheads. Brother is the title sponsor versus Indiana on Nov. 15 and the initial 5,000 spectators will collect camouflage baseball caps with an embroidered red, white and blue R. The first giveaway item will be schedule magnets to the first 5,000 fans at the home opener against Howard on Sept. 6.
Fans are encouraged to wear red against the Nittany Lions for a Saturday evening contest that will mark RU’s initial B1G game. When the Wolverines visit High Point Solutions Stadium, black is back “On the Banks” for another Saturday evening tilt. The annual homecoming game will take place versus Wisconsin (Nov. 1; noon) and Letterwinners Day will be against the Hoosiers.
Additional ticket promotions for the 2014 season are still to be announced. Season ticket and mini plan packages are available. To speak to a representative, please call the ticket office at 1-866-445-GORU (4678) or visit the football ticket information page here.
