Florida Vs. Rutgers: Mike Rosario Likely To Miss Game Against Former Team

The Florida Gators will head up to New Jersey tonight to take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, but will likely be without former RU standout Mike Rosario.

The Florida Gators will put their No. 10 ranking on the line when they head up the East Coast to take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights on Thursday night. The game starts at 7 pm and can be seen on ESPN2.

The big shame is that Mike Rosario will likely not be able to suit up for this one, according to ESPN, which means that he won't have a chance to play against his former team. Rosario played two years for Rutgers after coming in as a McDonald's All-American and highly ranked recruit. He likely would have relished the chance to play against his former team.

Rutgers is just 7-5 this season and figures to have a rough go of things in the Big East. This could be a fairly easy tune-up before the Gators get into their SEC schedule.
