Red Car Wins First-Ever THON ‘Car Race’
As a morale booster early Saturday morning, THON planned a special historic event for the Bryce Jordan Center: THON Weekend’s first-ever “car race.”
We're about to make history, apparently. Everyone in the bowl has to pass two giant cars around the BJC, with the first to the other side being the winner.

To accomplish this feat, two car banners — red and blue — started in the stands on opposite sides of the BJC and raced as spectators crowd-surfed them to the center Section 114 across from the main stage.
Despite a late-race comeback from the blue car after it was nearly dropped over, the red car narrowly escaped with the victory to Section 114.

I kid you not, THON started announcing this apparently historic “car race” right as four BJC staffers lined up their zamboni-like sweepers on the floor. I must say, I think I would’ve rather seen four middle-aged men race zamboni sweepers than seen college kids struggle to pass banners around the arena.
Until next time, blue car.

Rutgers has struggled on both sides of the ball this season, and this is reflected in its sad 0-7 conference record.
It’s been an exciting century…unless you’re Rutgers playing Penn State.
