Rutgers played its last football game as a member of the American Athletic Conference on Saturday, and it appears it did so for free.

The Star-Ledger reports that the AAC has informed Rutgers officials that it plans to withhold the $1.5 million Pinstripe Bowl payout from the school because of the current legal dispute between the conference and the school concerning Rutgers' buyout from the conference.

Neither side is talking publicly about it.

“Because there is pending litigation, I can't comment,” Rutgers athletic director Julie Hermann told the paper when asked for comment, and the American Athletic Conference basically repeated what Hermann said when it was asked as well.

Rutgers is currently disputing the notion that it owes the American Athletic Conference $10 million to leave for the Big Ten.
