Rutgers is hosting Michigan State Saturday for the team’s final home regular season game. With that in mind, the Scarlet Knights are doing something special.
The Scarlet Knights are honoring Eric LeGrand, who was a former player that ended up becoming paralyzed due to a hit on a kickoff return. On Saturday, Rutgers — at the end of the third quarter — will be honoring him by asking fans to hold up a “52”:
This Saturday, we honor @EricLeGrand52 at the 'We bELieve' game. At the end of the 3rd Quarter, during "Don't Stop Believin,'" all fans in attendance are asked to hold up a "52" for our cameras to be shown on the videoboard. Help us spread the word! 🖐✌️ pic.twitter.com/4fwrvkNt3G

The gesture is an awesome one for a person who has helped change the lives of other because of his courage and the message he carries with him.
Rutgers-Michigan State is scheduled for a noon ET start on Saturday at SHI Stadium and the game will be televised on FS1.
