That is not the kind of debut Mel Tucker had to be hoping for, to say the least.

On paper, it appeared to be an ideal opponent for Tucker to get his feet wet and get his first B1G win as head coach of the Spartans. Unfortunately, Michigan State surrendered seven turnovers and saw Rutgers control the game from start to finish after entering the game as a double-digit underdog.

It was the first time Rutgers hit 38 points in a B1G game since 2015 and just the fifth B1G game ever when Rutgers scored 38 points. It also became just the first conference win for Rutgers since 2017.

After the ugly loss, plenty of Michigan State fans took to social media with their brutal feelings:
