The 1948 Rutgers Queensmen football team represented Rutgers University in the 1948 college football season. In their seventh season under head coach Harvey Harman, the Queensmen compiled a 7–2 record, won the Middle Three Conference championship, and outscored their opponents 224 to 130.[1][2] On October 16, 1948, Rutgers defeated Princeton, 22-6, in front of a crowd of 44,000 at Palmer Stadium in Princeton, New Jersey. The result was the first Rutgers victory at Princeton in 79 years of play between the two schools, ending what the Associated Press called "the oldest jinx in intercollegiate football history."[3] On November 13, 1948, the Queensmen defeated New York University, 40–0, in a game played at Yankee Stadium.[4] In the final game of the season, Rutgers defeated Fordham, 28-19.[5]
