PISCATAWAY - The home of the Scarlet Knights has a new name as Rutgers University has taken on a corporate sponsor for its football stadium, which will now be known as High Point Solutions Stadium.

Money gained from the naming rights will be spent on the football program at its discretion, according to Athletic Director Tim Pernetti. But the thought of more than $6 million going exclusively to benefit Scarlet Knights football doesn't sit well with some students who are facing tuition increases and other rising costs.

The first game in High Point Solutions Stadium will be played Sept. 1.
