Rutgers last score came in the fourth quarter against Iowa on Sept. 24. The Scarlet Knights were shutout by both Ohio State and Michigan to open Big Ten play and Illinois held them scoreless for more than 45 minutes Saturday.
Rutgers was just the second Power 5 team in the last 10 years to go at least 10 quarters without scoring.
