The Rutgers wrestling team took a couple vans to Lawerenceville last night and put on a show in front of a sold out crowd of 1,600 passionate wrestling fans.In a match that most thought would be close the Scarlet Knights made a statement winning 8-10 matches, 4 of those matches reversed prior losses to the Rider wrestler.
Rider still holds a 12-9 edge in the all-time series but Rutgers is on a roll and has now won seight-straight duals over the Broncs.
It was a great atmosphere to watch a wrestling match.
