-- The Scarlet Knights will wear their black uniforms Thursday night rather than their usual home red. It's the second time this season they'll don black. It's the players' favorite uniform. They typically wear it once or twice per season.

-- Rutgers has received more than 2,000 ticket deposits for next season since the announcement it's jumping to the Big Ten Conference.

-- Thursday night's game vs. Louisville will only be the third sellout since Rutgers expanded the football stadium to 52,455 seats in 2009.
