Allen Lessels' UNH Notebook: UNH gridders hope to keep moving up
The Wildcats beat Stony Brook, 31-13, for their third straight win and are now 4-3 overall and 3-1 in the Colonial Athletic Association.
It won’t be easy.
Next Saturday, James Madison comes to Durham and Cowell Stadium. William & Mary and James Madison own matching records of 5-3 overall and 2-2 in the CAA and both are fighting, along with UNH, to stay alive in the race for berths in the FCS playoffs.
“We’re seeing some real good defensive lines,” McDonnell said.

The Wildcats will try to get off to a better start in Hockey East play.
They play their first league game tonight at 7:15 at the Tsongas Center in Lowell against UMass-Lowell. The two teams meet again on Saturday night at 7 at the Whittemore Center at UNH.
Hockey East teams only play each other two times this season, for a total of 20 league games compared to 27 in years past, putting added importance on each contest.
The Wildcats fell to 1-3-1 with a 4-2 loss at Rensselaer on Saturday and dropped out of the USCHO Top 20 rankings this week.
“We know that we have the right pieces in there,” said sophomore forward Dan Correale. “We’ve just got to put it together a bit better.
Lowell started the season ranked No. 1, but went 1-3-0 in its first four games. The River Hawks came up with a pair of wins last weekend, 4-1 on Friday at Michigan State and 2-1 at Michigan on Saturday, and is ranked No. 15.
UNH director of athletics Marty Scarano will take part in a Town Hall-style discussion of Ed O’Bannon’s class action civil lawsuit against the NCAA and the future of college athletics on Tuesday at the UNH School of Law in Concord.
