Rutgers to honor 37 alumni killed in 9/11 attacks with special uniforms
Twenty years ago this weekend, Rutgers lost 37 alumni in the Sept. 11 attacks.
When the Scarlet Knights take the field against Syracuse on Saturday, they’ll honor the alumni that were killed that day.
Rutgers don special all-white uniforms at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse that read “NEVER FORGET” along the sides. Players will wear gloves that say “NEVER FORGET” and the helmets will have names of those 37 alumni written on them.
