Urban Meyer praises Rutgers football head coach Greg Schiano's rebuild: 'What he has done has been phenomenal'




 

Ahead of what is a measuring stick game for Rutgers football, the Scarlet Knight's head coach received some pretty heady praise from Urban Meyer this week. One of the most successful college coaches of his generation, Meyer said he is impressed by the job being done by Schiano at Rutgers.

It has been a solid start to the season for Rutgers (3-0, 0-0 Big Ten) ahead of Saturday night's game against Iowa (2-1, 0-0 Big Ten). The game under the lights at SHI Stadium (7:00 P.M. ET, FS1) should have an electric atmosphere as Rutgers looks to end what is a 19-game home losing streak in the conference.

For Meyer, who won three national championships (two with Florida and one with Ohio State) and won the Big Ten on three occasions with Ohio State, it has been a noteworthy start to the season for Rutgers. The Scarlet Knights are chasing bowl eligibility for the first time since 2014.
