While it obviously wasn’t going to be like any other season, both squads had their eyes set on winning a CAA championship no matter what it looked like. That pursuit came to an end this week when both the Wildcats and Rams announced they…

After going 2-10 in 2019, it wasn’t a surprise when expectations started out low for the URI football program entering this unprecdented spring season. When the Rams traveled to Villanova to take on the sixth-ranked Wildcats in Pennsylvania, no one expected Rhode Island to have a chance.

When New Hampshire head coach Sean McDonnell met with the media for his first “regular season” Zoom press conference on Wednesday, the energy radiating from Durham was palpable. McDonnell has been waiting a long time to get back on the sidelines since having to sit out the 2019 season.
