Rutgers has announced no fans will be allowed at college football games this season.
The announcement comes in light of a no-fan policy that applies to teams like the NFL’s New York Jets and Giants who also play in New Jersey. The news came following Gov. Phil Murphy’s announcement there would be a strict 500-person limit on any outdoor gatherings throughout New Jersey due to the pandemic.
According to NJ.com, Rutgers could lose out on $50 million dollars this year if college football is canceled entirely.
Illinois was scheduled to play Rutgers at their home on October 3rd.
