Following their upset of 38-36 upset of Arkansas on Saturday night, the 4-0 team also moved into USA Today’s Top 25 ranking at number 25, tied with West Virginia.

`I really don’t have a reaction,’’ coach Kyle Flood said on a conference call this afternoon according to the Star Ledger.  “I think the fans will probably enjoy it. For us, it’s only four games out of 12. It’s great to be in the position we’re in right now.”

Rutgers is off this coming weekend.
