Photo: Rutgers Fans Made 'Enemies Of The State' Sign With Names Of Penn State Players From New Jersey

Tonight's a big night for Rutgers football. The school is playing its first Big Ten game against Penn State, and there is legitimate animosity between the two schools. Part of the reason why is because Penn State has done an excellent job recruiting in the state of New Jersey, while Rutgers has struggled to lock up recruits in its home state. This isn't just in the 2015 class, but even in years past, many highly regarded NJ recruits have picked Penn State over Rutgers.

Apparently, Rutgers fans have had enough. Today, a group of fans made a sign that lists the names of all 15 Nittany Lions from the Garden State, and those players were deemed "Enemies of the State."

The 15 players from New Jersey, per GoPSUSports, are CB Kyle Alston, LB Brandon Bell, RB Bill Belton, WR Saeed Blacknall, LB Jason Cabinda, TE Mike Gesicki, P/K Chris Gulla, DT Austin Johnson, C Wendy Laurent, OT Brandon Mahon, C Angelo Mangiro, CB Jesse Merise, DE Garrett Sickels, S Anthony Smith, and DT Antoine White.

It should be an intense contest with an electric atmosphere at High Point Solutions in Piscataway, New Jersey. The game is scheduled to kick off at 8:00 P.M. and can be seen on the Big Ten Network.
