Kyle Bolin a transfer from Louisville will start at quarterback, while Robert Martin will start at running back. Two of the three top receivers return from last season, the offensive line is poor at best.

Last season the Rutgers offense managed to average 15.6 points per game which was No. 127 in the nation.

Defensively, Rutgers was No. 125 against the run, No. 18 against the pass and overall No. 97.

Wolverines vs Utes Free Pick

The college football regular season starts on Thursday and a number of good matchups are set for the first long weekend of action. One such game features the Big 10 Michigan Wolverines visiting the Pac-12 Utah Utes. The current line has Utah favored by 4.5 points with the over/under point total on 46.

This game marks the beginning of the Jim Harbaugh era at Michigan as head coach.
