Never fear, New Jersey hoops fans, your states biggest rivalry won’t be dying alongside the Big East.

Despite now playing in separate conferences, Rutgers and Seton Hall will be playing once a season for the foreseeable future, according to a report.

Next season, the game will be played in early December and will take place at Rutgers, with the host alternating every season, but the details will be worked out as Rutgers continues to fill out the rest of their Athletic Department in the wake of the Mike Rice scandal.

Rutgers will play in the AAC next season before moving on to the Big Ten. Seton Hall is a member of the new Big East.
