Rutgers: Teel Takes A Vow

For newly-minted No. 25 Rutgers, Saturday's game against No. 6 West Virginia is the biggest since, well, last Thursday.

After Monday, Rutgers is no exception. Middle linebacker Blair Bines broke his jaw in Monday's morning practice session, sidelining him for six weeks and sending head coach Greg Schiano's plan for his linebacking corps up in smoke.
