Thursday's game will be played on the seventh anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center, and today's paper has a story on Mike Teel's recollection of that day and his worries about his father, Mike Sr., who's a Port Authority police officer.
Fans at Thursday's game will be handed mini American flags, and there will be pregame ceremonies, including a military flyover before kickoff.
Assistant AD for athletic communications Jason Baum said there will be 20 scouts at the game -- the most since Baum came to Rutgers in 2006. Among those in attendance will be Giants GM Jerry Reese, Colts president Bill Polian, and Vikings GM Rick Spielman.
