Surging Rutgers can bolster its bowl prospects with a win over struggling Louisville tonight.

The host Scarlet Knights (6-5 overall, 4-2 Big East) have ripped off five straight wins after starting the season 1-5. Coach Greg Schiano says it's a testament to his team's maturity.

The game marks the final bow for senior quarterback Mike Teel, a key factor in the Scarlet Knights' steady play of the last month. A win would ensure Rutgers of a fourth straight bowl berth for the first time.

Louisville's prospects are considerably dimmer. The Cardinals (5-6, 1-5) need to win just to become eligible for a bowl, but a victory would not guarantee a berth.
