Book it: Today’s free college football pick (Indiana at Rutgers)

I can’t believe I’m picking Rutgers here, simply because that program has been a disaster for years.

No, I’m not crazy enough to take Rutgers to win over Indiana. But the Scarlet Knights are getting 13 points as home underdogs, which is a big number.

Indiana got a signature win — controversially — last week over Penn State, so it could be in for a bit of a letdown.

Rutgers went on the road and smacked Michigan State, 38-27. Maybe that means Sparty is absolutely terrible, which could be the case, but I’m gonna give Rutgers some credit for going out there and winning impressively.

Greg Schiano has a tough job ahead of him at Rutgers, but he already has made a mark with last week’s win.

Look for Rutgers to hang around and cover.

The pick: Rutgers +13

Prediction: Indiana 30, Rutgers 20

Season record: 4-2-1
