ready for a big Homecoming celebration?...wouldn't it be something if this game kept alive the Spiders chances in the CAA?...it's possible a big celebration may be in order!
for years the Wildcats had an incredible CAA and FCS Playoff run...led by legendary coach Sean McDonnell New Hampshire made the FCS Playoffs 14 years in a row (2004-2017), but all good things ultimately come to an end...the string ended in 2018...
just like the Spiders, New Hampshire has not been a serious factor in the CAA Championship battle since 2018...they may have hit rock bottom last season going 3-8, 2-6 CAA...
Coach McDonnell is gone and former star Cats QB Rick Santos is heading up the rebuilding effort...the Wildcats were picked to finish 9th in the CAA preseason poll...that just looks kind of weird...
but this does seem like the perfect year to for a UR twofer...1) defeat New Hampshire in RVA for the first time since 2007 and 2) satisfy the Homecoming crowd with a win that keeps Spiders CAA hopes alive!
