Coming off an early bye week, Rutgers was last seen defeating the Arkansas Razorbacks on the road, 35-26, on Sept. 22.
Connecticut, on the other hand, is off to a 3-2 start so far this season, as the Huskies prepare for their first Big East tilt. They defeated Buffalo, 24-17, at home on Sept. 29, and their losses came at the hands of NC State and Western Michigan.
Last season, Rutgers faced Connecticut with an opportunity to secure a share of the Big East championship, which would have been the school's first, going into the final game of the year. The Huskies went on to demolish the Scarlet Knights, 40-22, in that contest, ending Rutgers' hopes for a conference title.
According to OddsShark, Rutgers is currently favored by seven points over the Huskies, while the over/under rests at 40.
Kickoff is set for noon ET at High Point Solutions Stadium. The game will be shown on ESPNU and WatchESPN.
