Rutgers is home to a first-class roster of exciting Big Ten teams whose athletes play hard. That teamwork on the field powers a pride that resonates throughout the stands.
Scarlet Knights Athletics
Strong classroom performances by Rutgers athletes place the university among the nation's top programs academically, according to NCAA Academic Progress Report (APR) scores. The Rutgers football program ranked in the top 10 percent nationally in APR for the eighth consecutive year, the only Big Ten football program with such a record. Women's golf and women's lacrosse teams were also academic standouts again in 2015.

Long before the advent of varsity athletics, Rutgers students were privately challenging students from other schools to meet for a little friendly competition. Today, these student-run sport clubs, still a vibrant part of Rutgers life, may be instructional, competitive, or both.
Competitive clubs play against other schools across the country.
