Although Rutgers took care of the ball in this matchup, they could not recover from a horrible start. The Badgers ended the first quarter up 22-3. After Rutgers made it a close game at the end of the third quarter, the Badgers offense came alive again in the final frame.
With only a few days left in January, Rutgers is now 0-9 in conference play. As a result, they are currently in the basement of the Big Ten standings. On Tuesday, they will have a shot at redemption when they take on Michigan State.
