There’s a lot to unpack when it comes to Saturday’s Colonial Athletic Association football game between the University of Maine and the University of New Hampshire that will be played in frosty Orono, Maine.
UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE coach Rick Santos called his team’s 40-22 triumph over Elon on Oct. 22 the program’s biggest game in five years. That may have been true, but it set up an even bigger game this weekend.
WHEN Tony Trisciani was coaching defensive backs at the University of New Hampshire, he and UNH assistant coach Mike Dawson spent a good chunk of one practice watching a scout team quarterback carve up the UNH secondary. Trisciani’s blood pressure rose with every completion.
DARTMOUTH COLLEGE and the University of New Hampshire, the state’s only Division I football programs, will meet Saturday afternoon in Hanover (1:30 p.m.). Although both are FCS programs, they don’t have a lot in common when it comes to recruiting.
