PISCATAWAY, N.J. – The Rutgers doubleheader scheduled for Nov. 4 versus Maryland at Yankee Stadium has been moved to High Point Solutions Stadium. The joint decision between Rutgers and the Yankees was necessary in order to allow a sufficient amount of time to logistically stage the events in Piscataway due to the Yankees' current postseason run.

"We were looking forward to staging this historic event at Yankee Stadium," Director of Athletics Pat Hobbs said. "With two weeks until the date, it was important for us to finalize details that help ensure our fans and our student-athletes have a one-of-a-kind experience. As a result of the Yankees' amazing postseason run, there were operational concerns that called for us to make a decision at this time. It was agreed that moving the game to High Point Solutions Stadium was the best option under the circumstances. We value our continuing partnership with the New York Yankees and will be cheering them on this weekend and hopefully in the World Series."

The Big Ten will announce the start time and television designation for the football game at a later date. The time for wrestling will be released shortly after.
