Rutgers University is the largest state school in New Jersey. It offers a big time athletics experience. Rutgers lives up to its research university moniker—the school spends hundreds of millions on research and development annually, and there are nearly 300 research centers on campus. Rutgers is the birthplace of college football, hosting the first collegiate game in 1869, against in-state foe Princeton.
