    According to the CFN Strength of Schedule, the Rutgers 2024 football schedule is the easiest in the Big Ten. It’s also one of the easiest amongst Power Five (or Power Four, as the case may now be), providing a clear opportunity to build on their successes of last season. There has been some roster turnover, but there are plenty of potential wins presented to them by the calendar.

    That starts with an out-of-conference slate that could see the Scarlet Knights enter Big Ten play with a 3-0 record. The Rutgers 2024 football schedule begins with the Howard Bison and Akron Zips visiting Piscataway before a trip to Blacksburg and an intriguing Virginia Tech Hokies team rounds out non-conference play. Rutgers beat Virginia Tech last fall.

    With nine Big Ten games, the Rutgers 2024 football schedule features five home games, starting with the Washington Huskies, a team in transition. They also welcome the Wisconsin Badgers, UCLA Bruins, Minnesota Golden Gophers, and Illinois Fighting Illini to Rutgers Stadium. The Scarlet Knights beat Illinois the last time the two teams met, in 2021.

    The road game slate features trips to the Michigan State Spartans, Maryland Terrapins, Nebraska Cornhuskers, and the USC Trojans, with the latter arguably the hardest game on the Rutgers 2024 football schedule. The chances of a postseason berth are buoyed by avoiding the Michigan Wolverines, Ohio State Buckeyes, and Penn State Nittany Lions this fall.
