Rutgers coach Chris Ash closed out the last practice of Michigan Week, but he had his team receive a special message beforehand.

Members of the Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey’s Military Affinity Group and Rutgers ROTC cadets attended practice and spoke to the team ahead of Saturday’s “Military Appreciation Day” when the Scarlet Knights host the No. 4-ranked Wolverines at HighPoint.com Stadium. Kickoff is 3:30 p.m.

“It’s a special day for our program,” Ash said after practice. “I think Rutgers does a great job of celebrating and showing appreciation, honoring the people in the service. Our team wants to do that also.

“We opened up practice here today and let several come in, watch us practice and be around our team. They gave a quick message about how they support our team. They understand and appreciate the hard work and effort they put in, just like they do. It’s a great partnership and we’re excited to go out and play not only for ourselves, but for them on Saturday.”
