Rutgers Will Give Students $100,000 If Team Scores on Season’s Opening Kickoff

Rutgers Return

The weight of Rutgers’ student body is now resting heavily on Janarion Grant’s shoulders.

If the junior kick returner takes one to the house on the Scarlet Knights’ season-opening kickoff against Norfolk State on September 5, the school will pay 100 lucky students $1,000 each.

Kudos to you if you figured out that’s a total payout of $100,000.

According to the team, every Rutgers student sitting in the student section will automatically be entered to win. This is a pretty ingenious plan to get students in the seats, and Grant did score on a 100-yard return in Rutgers’ home opener 2 years ago. That was the last time the Knights took a kick return to the house.

“So, you’re telling me there’s a chance?!” (cue in Lloyd Christmas)

There may be a riot if the Spartans decide to start the game off with a squib kick.
