The athletics department issued a warning to its student and fan organization, the Blue Legion, after a message from the group’s vice president revealed the university had received a warning from police about «suspected explicit, racist and vulgar language» directed at toward Rutgers.

rutgers recovered from a 19-point second-half deficit to defeat Penn State, 59-56, on Sunday night, marking the biggest comeback for the Scarlet Knights in nearly 30 years.
