Rutgers Will Give Away $100,000 To Students If Scarlet Knights Return 1st Kickoff For Touchdown

Rutgers really wants students to fill High Point Solutions Stadium for the Scarlet Knights' opener against Norfolk State. How much? They're willing to put $100,000 on the line. If Rutgers takes its first kick return of the season to the house, 100 randomly chosen students in attendance will receive $1,000. 

Kick returner Janarion Grant is always a threat to take it all the way. He returned a kick for a touchdown in 2013, and averaged over 25 yards per return last season. He'll have the entire student section relying on him on September 5.
