Below, in red shorts and gray T-shirts, members of the Rutgers football team move through drills.

Scott Vallone looked at Rutgers head football coach Greg Schiano in the eyes and believed him when he said, "We're going to win a national championship. " A year ago, Schiano's claim might have elicited laughter. A year later, it helped earn a commitment from Vallone, a heralded recruit. Vallone, a 6-foot-2?, 260-pound defensive tackle from Central Islip, N.Y, committed to Rutgers on Sunday. Vallone will be a senior at St. Anthony's High School in South Huntington, N.Y., and is considered among the top defensive line recruits in the nation.

Boston College should have skipped its flight home from Rutgers yesterday. The Eagles could have just lined up in an offensive formation and gone from there. They probably would have gotten home quicker. Boston College compiled 524 offensive yards on the way to a 35-21 win over the Scarlet Knights at Rutgers Stadium. The Eagles averaged 6.2 yards per play. "We certainly found a way to lose the football game," Rutgers coach Terry Shea said. "Our defense is not stout up front.

It won't be until Rutgers takes the field today against visiting Navy that the identity of the Scarlet Knights' starting quarterback will be revealed. Last week at Rutgers Stadium, three quarterbacks saw action as the Knights opened the season with a 38-28, come-from-behind victory over Villanova. And as of yesterday, Rutgers coach Terry Shea had yet to announce whether last week's starter, sophomore Corey Valentine, would again get the nod over junior Ralph Sacca and senior Mike Stephans.

But while the players were dancing around the field and accepting congratulations from family members, friends and fans, Rutgers' first-year coach, Doug Graber, was searching the sea of faces for his athletic director.

The rivalry was set for renewal long before Temple was invited back to the Big East Conference. But now that both teams are once again in the same conference, the Temple-Rutgers clash should go beyond a common border war. "Obviously, we recruit against each other," Temple coach Steve Addazio said of the programs. Rutgers "is 66 miles away from Temple. It's in a bordering state [New Jersey]. So I think that absolutely is a natural rivalry. " And it's one of the regional rivalries the Big East plans to protect and promote.

Greg Schiano, who begins his 10th season as Rutgers head coach Thursday against Norfolk State at Rutgers Stadium, has transformed Scarlet Knights football from a laughing matter to a program that matters. The team's followers, though, are antsy for more. Many of them believe it's high time Rutgers steps up to the next level. Despite the progress the Scarlet Knights have made under their demanding coach, a Big East Conference championship and invitation to a meaningful bowl game have eluded them.
