I expect winning this road game against the former Fighting Christians would be a little special for Coach Huesman who has not had any luck versus the Phoenix in a regular season since arriving at UR in 2017...
the Phoenix and Spiders programs look very similar, both trying to find a way to get back to Championship and Playoff caliber football...
a valuable CAA road win would give us a game up on Elon who hopes to get back to the FCS playoffs for the first time since 2018...thank goodness QB Davis Cheek is gone!...like Richmond the Phoenix will likely be starting a proven FCS QB, a transfer who led Montana St. to the FCS Playoffs last season...
the Elon WRs are stout and their OL is veteran...last season a leaky defense may have cost the Phoenix a Playoff spot...Coach Trisiani replaced the defensive coordinator in an effort to shore up things...
this should be a very competitive and entertaining CAA football game...we don't have to win it to contend for the Championship and a Playoff bid, but it sure would help!
