MSG catches Rutgers football

NY channel inks two game deal

Madison Square Garden has signed a deal with last year’s surprise team, the Rutgers U. Scarlet Knights, to produce and telecast at least two live regular-season football games, including the season opener against Buffalo.

“The Scarlet Knights were one of the best stories in college football last season,” said Lydia Murphy-Stephans, executive VP of programming and production for MSG Media.

The MSG deal includes the production of a weekly series called “Rutgers Football in :60,” a one-hour edited version of every Rutgers game, including the ones not carried live by MSG.

Two other weekly series come with the package, both half-hours: “Rutgers Football Weekly,” featuring highlights, previews, profiles of key players and interviews with the team’s head coach Greg Schiano, and “Inside Rutgers Football,” which deals with the personalities of the players.

Rutgers is ranked in the top 20 after coming off an 11-2 season, culminating in a 37-10 victory over Kansas State in the Texas Bowl.
