head coach sean mcdonnell

Sean McDonnell, a 1978 University of New Hampshire graduate, gears up for his 13th season as the head coach at his alma mater with a career record of 88-58. In 2010, McDonnell’s Wildcats collected victories against five ranked opponents, a University record, en route to an 8-5 campaign. New Hampshire qualified for the NCAA Division I FCS Championship for the seventh consecutive season, the longest active streak in the nation. Further, UNH advanced to the quarterfinal round for the sixth time in those seven years after dispatching Bethune-Cookman, 45-20, in a second-round encounter before suffering a quarterfinal loss at eventual national championship game participant Delaware, 16-3. During this remarkable seven-season run of success, the Wildcats have posted a mark of 65-25 for a .722 winning percentage. They have been ranked in The Sports Network/Fathead.com Top 25 for a Colonial Athletic Association (CAA)-leading 97 consecutive weeks, dating back to Sept. 13, 2004. McDonnell was feted as the 2010 Division I FCS Coach of the Year by the New England Football Writers, the third time he’s been honored (2005, ’08). During the course of the ’10 campaign, the ‘Cats earned their 12th straight home victory –a school record- by shutting out No. 11 Richmond, 17-0, on Homecoming. Two weeks later, UNH made history by topping No. 12 UMass, 39-13, in the inaugural Colonial Clash at Gillette Stadium. The game was witnessed by 32,848 fans, the largest football crowd in CAA history. McDonnell has guided UNH football to the upper echelon of the FCS and has recruited several All-Americans and NFL-caliber players, including the likes of Walter Payton Award-winning QB Ricky Santos (2005) and the all-time NCAA FCS record holder for TD catches in WR David Ball (2003-06), who surpassed Jerry Rice’s career mark of 51 TDs with his 58 scoring receptions. In 2009, UNH finished 10-3 and won its second straight CAA North Division championship. The Wildcats continued to be giant killers by knocking off an FBS opponent for the fifth straight time, securing a hard-fought 23-16 triumph at Ball State. Previous FBS opponents to feel the wrath of the Wildcats during the amazing upset run were Army (2008), Marshall (’07), Northwestern (’06) and Rutgers (’04). UNH was the only team to defeat eventual FCS national champion Villanova on Homecoming (28-24). The Wildcats also posted an impressive win on the road at McNeese State, defeating the Cowboys, 49-13, in the first round of the NCAA playoffs. New Hampshire notched a 10-3 record in 2008, including a defeat of Southern Illinois in the first round of the NCAAs before a quarterfinal-round setback at Northern Iowa. UNH finished the season ranked No. 7 or No. 8 in most national polls, and McDonnell was honored as the New England FCS Coach of the Year for the second time in his tenure. In 2007, the Wildcats were 7-5 overall and just narrowly missed upsetting No. 1 Northern Iowa in the first round of the NCAAs, losing on a last-minute TD, 38-35, at the UNI Dome. The Wildcat offense, ranked 16th in the nation, averaged over 400 yards per contest. The Wildcats were ranked as high as No. 1 in the nation in 2006 and finished the season ranked No. 6 after defeating Hampton in the first round (41-38) of the NCAA Championships. In 2005, McDonnell was honored as the Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year by The Sports Network after leading his Wildcats to a record-breaking 11-2 season, an Atlantic 10 Championship title and a second straight NCAA appearance in the I-AA quarterfinals. McDonnell had his Wildcats ranked No. 1 in the nation at the end of the 2005 regular season. In 2005 the Wildcats played two nationally-televised NCAA postseason games on ESPN at Cowell Stadium, beating Colgate in the first round before succumbing to Northern Iowa in the NCAA quarterfinals. In 2004, his hard work rebuilding the program paid off in a 10-3 overall record and a 6-2 mark in the Atlantic 10, which earned the team the Northern Division Championship title. UNH earned a bid to the NCAA I-AA Championships for the first time since 1994 and advanced to the quarterfinals for the first time in the history of the program. UNH won its first-ever NCAA contest under McDonnell, upsetting Georgia Southern in the first round, 27-23, on national television. McDonnell was named a finalist for the Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year and was selected District Coach of the Year by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA). In 2003, UNH steadily improved as the season went on and the Wildcats went on to win three of their last four contests, including an upset victory over top-25 squad, Maine. The team’s 5-7 record could have easily been above .500, as UNH narrowly lost to No. 1-ranked Delaware on a missed field goal in the closing seconds, and UNH was driving for the game-winning TD late in the Division I contest at Central Michigan, but ran out of time. UNH posted impressive victories over the likes of top-ranked Massachusetts, Dartmouth and Richmond. The Minutemen were ranked 17th in the nation when the Wildcats defeated them by a 31-14 margin at Cowell Stadium. In 2002, McDonnell’s offense was one of the most prolific in I-AA football and averaged 449.2 yards per contest and 36.7 ppg. In the victories over the likes of Hampton, James Madison, Dartmouth and Massachusetts the ‘Cats scored 37 ppg and scored over 40 points in two of the victories. UNH finished with a 4-7 overall record in 2001. In 2000, the Wildcats were ranked as high as 23rd in the nation and knocked off three top-25 opponents, including Hampton (31-17), Massachusetts (24-16) and No. 2 Delaware on Nov. 4 (45-44 OT). Injuries squashed UNH’s chances for a playoff berth down the stretch, but UNH opened the campaign with a 4-0 record, its best start since 1977 when the Wildcats won seven straight games. UNH finished the season with a 6-5 record and finished tied for fourth in the Atlantic 10.

UNH FOOTBALL - NATION-LEADING 7 STRAIGHTNCAAAPPEARANCES

2011 SEASON PREVIEW

The University of New Hampshire football team gears up for its 2011 season intent on extending the country’s longest Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) postseason streak to an eighth straight year. The Wildcats, who reached the NCAA Division I quarterfinals for the sixth time in seven years, completed the 2010 campaign with an 8-5 record, stretching their string of consecutive weeks ranked in the Top 25 to an astounding 97 in a row. That is the longest streak in the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA), the nation’s premier FCS conference, and dates back to Sept. 13, 2004. The 2010 UNH football team made history by knocking off five ranked opponents for the first time ever and further established home dominance at venerable Cowell Stadium by completing the longest home winning streak in University history. The Wildcats blanked Richmond, 17-0, on Homecoming for a 12th straight victory at Mooradian Field, breaking a record that had endured for nearly 80 seasons. Additionally, New Hampshire’s triumph against Massachusetts at Gillette Stadium in the inaugural Colonial Clash was not only the largest live crowd to ever view a CAA game with 32,848 fans, it also featured the best television rating in league history on Comcast SportsNet New England (0.88). Once again in 2011, UNH will tangle with some of the top teams in the nation, kicking off with a challenge against the University of Toledo from the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) on Thursday, Sept. 1, at the historic Glass Bowl. The Wildcat football program serves as the benchmark for upset-minded FCS schools with a record of 5-1 versus FBS competition since 2004. The non-conference schedule also includes a visit to Lehigh, the defending Patriot League champion, and the home opener against another perennial Patriot League power, Holy Cross, on Oct. 1. The always-difficult CAA slate consists of road tilts at Richmond, William & Mary and Towson and home games against the likes of Villanova, Rhode Island, James Madison and Maine. Also, the second Colonial Clash is on tap for Oct. 22 against UMass at Gillette Stadium. While the ‘Cats had to bid farewell to six offensive starters from the ’10 squad, the depth chart includes 11 players who started games last season. Among this group is leading rusher Dontra Peters, second-leading receiver Joey Orlando and six offensive linemen with a wealth of playing experience, anchored by senior left guard George Pecoraro. On the other side of the ball, UNH will need to fill the void left by the departure of six starters, as senior cornerback Kyle Flemings is the lone member of the ’10 starting secondary back in the fold. The front seven, though, is loaded with experience, headlined by senior defensive end Brian McNally, a co-captain who set a school record with 13.5 sacks last season, and junior middle linebacker Matt Evans, fresh off a 156-tackle campaign, the highest total by a Wildcat since 1981. QUARTERBACK: Senior signal caller Kevin Decker has waited patiently in the wings for his chance to lead the offense, which finally arrives in his fifth season on campus. The 6-foot-

Kevin Decker 2-inch, 200-pound QB has shined when his number’s been called, never brighter than his lone start of the 2010 season. Decker, who was voted a co-captain by his teammates during spring camp, was at the helm of the Wildcats’ 45-20 NCAA second-round playoff victory at Bethune-Cookman on Dec. 4, completing 23 of 35 passes for 289 yards and three touchdowns. Overall, Decker saw action in all 13 games, connecting on 68.7-percent of his throws (46-for-67) for 447 yards with five touchdown tosses. The Armonk, N.Y., native also rushed the ball 28 times for 92 yards and a touchdown. The tight competition for the role of backup quarterback is a battle between junior James Brady (6-0, 200), a transfer from Georgetown who sat out last season due to NCAA transfer regulations, and redshirt freshman Andy Vailas (6-2, 180), who rushed for a touchdown in the spring Blue-White Game. RUNNING BACK: Junior Dontra Peters enjoyed a breakout sophomore season, leading all UNH ball carriers with 707 yards rushing yards and seven touchdowns on a team-leading 142 carries in 12 games. The 5-foot-11-inch, 198-pound running back averaged five yards per rush, 58.9 yards per game and was named to the All-CAA Third Team. Peters notched a CAA-best 197 rushing yards on 19 rushes in a season-opening win against Central Connecticut State and is poised to be among the league’s top RBs in 2011. Sophomore Chris Setian (5-9, 224) will complement Peters’ speed with a bruising betweenthe-tackles running ability. Setian led UNH with 5.1 yards per carry last season, gaining 184 yards and 36 carries. The East Longmeadow, Mass., native scored one touchdown and his downhill style helped him become the only Wildcat ball carrier

2011 SEASON PREVIEW

with 10-plus carries to avoid any rushes for negative yardage. Redshirt freshmen Jimmy Owens (5-8, 208) and Nico Steriti (5-11, 213) bided their time on the practice field in 2010 and should provide depth to the offensive backfield this season.

WIDE RECEIVER: Junior wideout Joey Orlando is on the precipice of stardom at UNH. As a sophomore, the 5-11, 199pound receiver ranked second on the team in receptions (50), yards (585) and touchdown catches (6). With another year of experience under his belt, Orlando should be a favorite target of Kevin Decker. The wide receiving corps was buoyed by the news that senior Chris Chandler was granted a medical hardship waiver by the NCAA to play a sixth season with the Wildcats. The Wakefield, Mass., native serves as both an on-field and inspirational leader for his battle back from a devastating knee injury that essentially cost him two seasons (2007, 2008). Last year, the 6-2, 219-pounder played in all 13 games, collecting 12 receptions for 164 yards and a touchdown. Chandler will be joined by another Wildcat eager to put a past injury in his rearview mirror: senior slot receiver Mickey Mangieri (5-10, 178). Mangieri had his junior campaign derailed before it really even got started when he suffered a broken leg in the fall BlueWhite Game, but the native of Pound Ridge, N.Y., is back at full strength, seeking to build off a sophomore season that saw him pace the Wildcats with an impressive 19.8 yards per reception in 2009. Sophomore Justin Mello (6-0, 214) received some valuable on-the-job training in 2010, snaring three passes for 31 yards in six games. He’ll be expected to step up this season and compete for playing time with promising redshirt freshmen Jimmy Giansante (6-2, 196) and R.J. Harris (6-0, 188), who

George Pecoraro WWW.UNHWILDCATS.COM

Joey Orlando pulled in a TD catch during the spring Blue-White Game. OFFENSIVE LINE: After losing only one core member, left tackle Seth Price, the offensive line boasts a collective unit featuring six individuals with extensive playing experience –all of whom started multiple games last season. Remarkably, left guard George Pecoraro (6-3, 281) is the only senior in the trenches. The Cresskill, N.J., native should be flanked by left tackle Walter McCarthy (6-5, 270) and junior incumbent Chris Zarkoskie (6-1, 297) at center. Sophomore Seamus O’Neill (6-3, 275) is expected to slide into the right guard slot, which he shared with sophomore Ricky Archer (6-2, 285) last season. Archer, who started games at both guard positions in ’10, provides experience at center, guard and tackle. Steady junior Mickey DiLima (6-4, 310) prepares to start at right tackle for the second year in a row. After missing last season, junior Isaiah Martin (6-2, 304) is looking to move up the depth chart, as are sophomores Sean Ryan (6-2, 300) and James Scafate (6-4, 300). They will compete with redshirt freshmen Alex Blane (6-4, 286), Rob Bowman (6-5, 292) and Mike Coccia (6-3, 275) for backup positions on the line. TIGHT END: Seniors Chris Jeannot and Sean Cullen both had promising junior seasons interrupted by concussions, but with a clean bill of health in 2011, the duo has the potential to serve critical roles in both blocking and pass-catching schemes for the Wildcats’ offense. Jeannot (6-6, 263) showed a glimmer of his big-play ability with a game-breaking 12 catches for 110 yards against FBS foe Pittsburgh in September. Limited to just five games, the Moon Township, Pa., native finished the season

UNH FOOTBALL - NATION-LEADING 7 STRAIGHTNCAAAPPEARANCES

2011 SEASON PREVIEW

with 24 receptions for 205 yards and a touchdown. Cullen (64, 231) saw time in nine games, amassing 20 catches for 250 yards and a touchdown. The experience of Jeannot and Cullen will be balanced out by the addition of up-and-coming redshirt freshman Harold Spears (6-4, 232). Both redshirt freshman Mike Mitchell (6-3, 236) and sophomore Matt Murray (6-2, 253) will also seek opportunities to contribute.

DEFENSIVE LINE: UNH’s front four will be anchored by bookend senior defensive ends Brian McNally and James Jenkins, who each started all 13 games in 2010. McNally (63, 266), who was voted a co-captain by his teammates in the spring, had one of the most dominating pass-rushing seasons ever witnessed in Durham, setting a school record with a CAAleading 13.5 sacks. The College Sporting News Sweet-63 AllAmerica, All-CAA First Team member, FCS All-New England Team honoree and ECAC All-Star compiled 42 tackles, 25 solo, with a team-best 15 tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. Though overshadowed by his heralded classmate, Jenkins (6-1, 242) was a model of consistency with 22 unassisted tackles and 21 assisted stops for a total of 43 tackles, most among returning linemen. The Paterson, N.J., native added four sacks and 6.5 tackles for loss. Sophomore Jay Colbert (6-1, 265) is slated to figure prominently at defensive end for a second straight season after collecting 12 tackles and forcing a fumble while seeing action in all 13 games as a redshirt freshman. Junior Jared Smith (6-3, 325) has a virtual lock on an interior lineman position after being a key member of the DT rotation last season. The Greencastle, Pa., native amassed 38 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, four sacks and a blocked kick while appearing in all 13 games. The early edge in the battle to

Matt Evans WWW.UNHWILDCATS.COM

Brian McNally replace the departed Steve Young is sophomore Sean McCann (6-2, 265), who made seven tackles in seven games last season. Junior Randi Vines (6-3, 256) was on the brink of a breakout season in 2010, evidenced by his 30-yard pick-six in the season opener against Central Connecticut State, but a knee injury suffered two weeks later ended his season prematurely and caused him to miss spring camp. Sophomore defensive end Cody Muller (6-2, 215), who made the game-sealing fumble recovery in the upset win at Villanova last November, will miss the ‘11 campaign due to injury. Fellow sophomore Jimmy Vailas (63, 260) is ready to make an impact at tackle after tallying two sacks in the spring Blue-White Game. Redshirt freshman Brian Ciccone (6-3, 239) shifted from tight end to defensive end in the spring, and classmate Tim Johnson (6-2, 275) transitioned from offensive line to defensive line during spring camp. Both individuals figure to be in the front-four mix this season. Other candidates for playing time include junior Jeff Emmons (6-2, 255) and redshirt freshman Matt Kaplan (6-1, 295). LINEBACKERS: In UNH’s unique 4-2-5 defense, the two middle linebackers must be able to read and react quickly in order to wreak havoc as sideline-to-sideline menaces. Fortunately for the Wildcats, they have a pair who fit the bill in juniors Matt Evans and Alan Buzbee. Evans (6-0, 233) burst upon the national stage in 2010 as one of the nation’s top LBs by racking up 156 tackles, the second-highest single-season total in school history. The Hanover, Mass., native led the unit in unassisted tackles (79) and assisted tackles (77), tacked on four sacks, two interceptions (including a 25-yard pick-six vs. Towson), three

2011 SEASON PREVIEW

forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. Deservedly, Evans was feted with a laundry list of postseason accolades: College Sporting News Sweet-63 All-America; Walter Camp FCS All-America; The Sports Network/Fathead.com All-America Second Team and All-CAA Second Team. Buzbee (6-3, 226) had an outstanding season in his own right, ranking third on the team with 86 tackles, 42 solo efforts, with eight tackles for loss and two forced fumbles after stepping into the starting lineup in week three for injured captain Devon Jackson. The Wildcats’ backup linebackers are seniors, with veteran special teams stalwarts John Duffey (6-2, 241) and Mark Petercuskie (5-11, 232) ready to step in when summoned.

SAFETIES: A unit that was deep on seniors a season ago will now rely on a collection of young players needing to fill the vacancies left by the graduations of Hugo Souza, Ryan McGuinness, John Greer and Mike Perkins. Senior Rod Walker (6-0, 202) is penciled in as the starting ‘whip’ safety coming off a junior campaign where he posted 17 tackles, including 11 solo stops, in mostly a special teams capacity. Sophomore Chris Beranger (5-11, 200) gets the first crack at free safety after amassing 20 tackles in 10 games during his redshirt freshman campaign, and sophomore Manny Asam (6-0, 185) made a successful conversion from wide receiver to strong safety in the spring, highlighted by his five tackles in the Blue-White Game. Expect to see strong candidacy from junior Tyler Sargent (5-10, 197), who made seven tackles in seven games last season before an injury ended his season early, and redshirt freshmen Chad Wilkes (6-0, 194) and Tre Williams (6-3, 190), who posted a game-high six tackles in the spring game.

Kyle Flemings

Rod Walker

CORNERBACKS: Senior Kyle Flemings (5-10, 176) will serve the leader of the secondary on the heels of a junior season that saw him tie for the team lead with eight pass breakups, nab four interceptions, force a fumble and recover two fumbles while starting every game. Senior Anthony Gorrell (5-10, 162) is primed to step into a starting role as the opposite corner, replacing four-year starter Dino Vasso. In 11 games last season, Gorrell registered seven tackles, one interception and one pass break-up. Sophomore Chris Houston (5-9, 172) and redshirt freshman Steven Thames (6-0, 176) will serve as backup corners. SPECIAL TEAMS: Kicker Mike MacArthur (5-10, 177) was the only true freshman to see playing time for UNH in 2010, and all he did with that responsibility was earn All-CAA Third Team honors by going 10-for-13 in field goal kicking and a perfect 24 of 24 in PATs. The North Hampton, N.H., native is back to handle place kicking and kickoff duties, and able junior A.J. DeLago (5-10, 204) returns in a backup role after booting four field goals in as many attempts last season. The Wildcats will have a new starting punter for the fourth straight season, with MacArthur and redshirt freshman Brad Prasky (5-11, 189) dueling for starting honors. Dontra Peters is back to return kickoffs after averaging 22.7 yards per return last season (seven returns-159 yards), and Tyler Sargent recorded a team-best 25.0 yards per kick return last year before an injury ended his season prematurely. Joey Orlando is expected to be the primary punt returner after returning three punts for 28 yards last season. Mickey Mangieri should also get the assignment of returning punts two seasons after returning three punts for 64 yards.

DURHAM, N.H. -The ninth-ranked University of New Hampshire football team opened up the 2010 season in impressive fashion, dominating Central Connecticut State University, 33-3, before a crowd of 7,419 at Cowell Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 4. Senior Terrance Fox set the tone by returning the game’s opening kickoff 91 yards for a touchdown, and sophomore running back Dontra Peters rushed 19 times for a career-high 197 yards and two scores. UNH (1-0) jumped in front just 16 seconds into the game when Fox, making his first appearance since the 2008 season, registered the first kick-return score of his career. The two-point conversion attempt failed, and the Wildcats had a 6-0 lead. New Hampshire added another big play later in the first quarter when Peters burst through the line on a 4th-and-1 play, making the gamble pay off when he raced 47 yards for a touchdown. Sophomore kicker A.J. DeLago tacked on the extra point, capping an eight-play, 79-yard drive that gave the Wildcats a 13-0 lead with 8:07 remaining in the opening period. The lead increased to 19-0 with 10:22 remaining in the first half when Peters ran inside left tackle, going 15 yards for his second scoring run of the afternoon. The extra point went wide right. The scoring drive took seven plays and covered 53 yards in 3:11. The ‘Cats moved in front, 26-0, with 6:23 left in the second quarter. Facing 3rd-and-goal from the three-yard line, senior quarterback R.J. Toman lobbed a scoring pass to junior tight end Chris Jeannot in the back of the end zone, and DeLago added the extra point to finish off the four-play, 30-yard drive. Central Connecticut State (0-1) got on the board when freshman kicker Steven Calitri booted a 29-yard field goal on the final play of the first half, cutting New Hampshire’s lead to 26-3. The only points scored in the second half came courtesy of UNH sophomore defensive lineman Randi Vines, who intercepted a pass from Blue Devils junior quarterback Gunnar Jespersen and took it back 30 yards for a pick-six with 12:50 left in the fourth quarter. An extra point by freshman kicker Mike MacArthur provided the final margin. Sophomore linebacker Matt Evans spearheaded the ferocious Wildcats’ defensive effort with a game-high 14 tackles, including five solo stops and a half-sack. Senior safety John Greer added 10 tackles (five solo) and a sack. UNH held CCSU’s vaunted ground attack to a grand total of 220 yards of offense and only 86 rushing yards on 39 carries (2.2 yards per carry).

PITTSBURGH, Pa. – The No. 5 University of New Hampshire football team was defeated 38-16 by FBS representative University of Pittsburgh in front of 50,120 fans Saturday afternoon at Heinz Field. Both teams are now 1-1 overall. UNH starting quarterback R.J. Toman completed 15 of 29 pass attempts for 183 yards. Kevin Decker entered the game in the fourth quarter and led the Wildcats to a scoring drive. He went 6-for-8 for 42 yards, including an 11-yard scoring pass play to Sean Cullen, and was the team’s leading rusher with 27 yards on three carries. Junior tight end Chris Jeannot recorded career highs in both receptions (12) and receiving yards (110). UNH’s defensive effort was led by Hugo Souza (eight tackles), Devon Jackson and Matt Evans, who finished with seven tackles apiece. Ryan McGuinness recorded an interception while both John Murray and Lance Mailloux tallied sacks. Pitt was led on the ground by Ray Graham (nine carries, 115 yards, two TDs), while reigning Big East Player of the Year Dion Lewis was held to a career-low 27 yards on 10 carries. Tino Sunseri went 24 of 34 for 275 yards and two TDs. Jon Baldwin was the top target with six receptions for 100 yards. An opportunistic Pittsburgh defense made an instant impact on the game’s first play from scrimmage. Sophomore free safety Jarred Holley intercepted Toman’s pass intended for Fox, giving the Panthers possession at the Wildcats’ 16-yard line. Though Pitt only managed one yard of offense on the ensuing four-play drive, the home team took a 3-0 lead on senior kicker Dan Hutchins’ 32-yard field goal with 13:45 to go in the first quarter. The Panthers upped their lead to 10-0 with 3:52 remaining in the opening stanza when, on their very next possession, they marched 54 yards on 11 plays before Lewis powered his way into the end zone from two yards out to cap off a drive that lasted six minutes, seven seconds. New Hampshire got on the board at 11:57 of the second quarter on the first career field goal by sophomore A.J. DeLago, a 22-yarder that came at the conclusion of a 10-play, 75-yard drive, reducing Pittsburgh’s lead to 10-3. The big play of the drive came when Toman, rolling to his right, found fellow captain Jellison sprinting down the left side of the field for a 38-yard pass play that brought the ball to the Panthers’ five-yard line. The Panthers would head to the halftime break with a 17-3 advantage courtesy of Sunseri’s two-yard touchdown pass to Cameron Saddler with just 18 seconds remaining in the second quarter. On the opening drive of the second half, the Wildcats’ defense caused its first turnover when McGuinness intercepted Sunseri at the UNH 16-yard line, halting a Pitt drive inside the UNH red zone. The Panthers, though, responded with a three-and-out defensive stance and, on the first play of their next offensive possession, Baldwin took a swing pass from Sunseri on the right sideline and broke free for a 56-yard touchdown, building the Pittsburgh lead to 24-3 with 10:18 left in the third quarter. New Hampshire pulled within 24-10 at 7:10 on a two-yard run up the gut by Dontra Peters and the ensuing PAT by DeLago. Pitt reestablished a 21-point lead, 31-10, on an eight-yard rush by Graham at 2:20 of the third quarter. It capped a nine-play, 80-yard drive that consumed 4:50 off the clock. Graham’s 64-yard scamper made the score 38-10 at 10:43 of the fourth quarter. UNH closed the scoring, 38-16, with 1:13 remaining in the game when Decker lofted an 11-yard TD pass to Cullen in the front-left side of the end zone. It was Cullen’s first-career touchdown grab.

KINGSTON, R.I. – Terrance Fox established career bests with 11 catches for 118 yards and two touchdowns, but the University of Rhode Island defeated the eighth-ranked University of New Hampshire, 28-25, at Meade Stadium on Saturday afternoon in the Colonial Athletic Association opener for both schools. Trailing 25-21 with 2:23 remaining in the fourth quarter, URI defensive end Victor Adesanya sacked UNH quarterback R.J. Toman, forcing a fumble that was recovered and returned 39 yards for a touchdown by defensive lineman James Timmins, allowing the Rams to grab the lead for the third and final time, 28-25. New Hampshire (1-2 overall, 0-1 CAA) had its last drive halted when Toman’s pass on 3rd-and-11 from the URI 42-yard line was intercepted by safety Matt Urban, preserving Rhody’s first victory over the Wildcats since 2003. Toman finished the day 31 of 44, both career highs, for 284 yards and two touchdowns and was the Wildcats’ leading rusher with 15 carries for 25 yards and a score. Rhode Island parlayed an early UNH turnover into a 3-0 lead with 10:37 left in the first quarter on Louis Feinstein’s 20-yard field goal. The Wildcats struck right back on their first drive, going 70 yards in just six plays to grab a 7-3 lead with 7:59 remaining in the first quarter. Wide receiver Joey Orlando made his first two catches of the season during the drive, including a 25-yard reception from Toman on a fade along the right sideline to put the ball in Rhode Island territory. Two plays later, Toman faked a handoff, rolled to his right, found a lane and ran for a 28-yard touchdown. The UNH defense shut down URI’s next drive, highlighted by the first career sack for sophomore defensive tackle Randi Vines, making his first career start, on 3rd-and-20. The Rams were forced to punt from their own 16, and Fox returned the punt 16 yards to the Rams’ 44-yard line. Fox would reap the benefits of the great field position by concluding a six-play, 44-yard drive at 3:47 of the opening stanza with his first touchdown reception of the season. Fox took a Toman screen pass and followed a key block from wide receiver Kevon Mason along the right sideline for a 19-yard score. Quarterback Kevin Decker hooked up with wide receiver Chris Chandler for the successful two-point conversion, staking the ‘Cats to a 15-3 advantage. Rhode Island trimmed the deficit to 15-10 with 13:14 left in the second on a five-yard pass from Probst to wide receiver Anthony Baskerville. On URI’s next scoring drive, Probst called his own number and rumbled 58 yards down to the UNH 6-yard line, but all the Rams would come away with was Feinstein’s second field goal of the game, a 23-yarder with 3:04 left in the half, cutting New Hampshire’s lead to 15-13. At the start of the second half, Toman accounted for all 57 yards of a 10-play drive, completing six passes for 55 yards and rushing for two yards before Mike MacArthur kicked a 26-yard field goal, the first of his career, staking New Hampshire to an 18-13 lead with 11:38 remaining in the third. The UNH defense forced turnovers on each of URI’s next two possessions, with senior defensive back Ryan McGuinness picking off Probst at the Rhode Island 42 with :45 remaining in the third and Dino Vasso registering his first interception of the year, snatching a Probst throw at the UNH 42 with 12:45 remaining in the fourth. The Rams finally broke through with an eight-play, 80-yard drive culminating in Probst’s two-yard touchdown run with 8:13 remaining. Probst kept it himself for the two-point conversion, giving Rhody a 21-18 edge. Toman then went to work, orchestrating a four-play, 60-yard drive in just 1:17 to put the Wildcats back in front. The signal caller went 4-for-4 on the drive, connecting with Orlando (career highs: 6 catches-81 yards) for passes of four and 33 yards before Fox hauled in a two-yard pass and then was on the receiving end of Toman’s 50th career touchdown pass, a 21-yarder with 6:56 left that lifted UNH to a 25-21 lead following MacArthur’s PAT.

DURHAM, N.H.- Senior quarterback R.J. Toman passed for a career-high 348 yards and threw four touchdown passes as the 16th-ranked UNH football team defeated Lehigh, 31-10, in front of a sun-drenched crowd of 8,144 at Cowell Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The ‘Cats matched a school record by earning their 11th straight home victory. Toman went 26 of 37, adding 19 yards rushing on eight carries. Senior Terrance Fox went over the 100-yard receiving mark for the second consecutive game, catching nine passes for a career-high 134 yards and a touchdown, and sophomore Joey Orlando set new career benchmarks with 10 receptions, 81 yards and two touchdowns against his hometown team. The UNH defense turned in a stirring performance, holding Lehigh to just 129 total yards (60-rushing, 69-passing) and tallying three interceptions. Making his second straight start at middle linebacker in place of injured captain Devon Jackson, sophomore Alan Buzbee recorded a game-high and careerbest 13 tackles, including six solo stops and a forced fumble. Sophomore running back Dontra Peters rushed 19 times for 93 yards, pacing a Wildcats’ ground attack that compiled 165 yards on 51 carries. UNH (2-2, 0-1 Colonial Athletic Association) scored first on a 37-yard field goal from freshman Mike MacArthur with 9:36 remaining in the opening quarter for a 3-0 lead. MacArthur’s field goal capped a 13-play, 44-yard drive, including a 26-yard pass play from Toman to senior wide receiver Kevon Mason (two catches-77 yards) on 3rd-and-10, extending the drive and putting the ball at the Mountain Hawks’ 28-yard line. Lehigh (2-2, 0-0 Patriot League) evened the score, 3-3, on a 42-yard field goal from Jake Peery with 5:34 to go in the first. UNH recaptured the lead, taking a 10-3 advantage courtesy of a three-play, 67-yard drive culminating in a one-yard scoring toss from Toman to Orlando, who caught a fade over his right shoulder in the back right corner of the end zone. Toman began the drive by finding Mason deep along the left sideline for a 51-yard pass play to the Lehigh 16. It was the ‘Cats longest pass play of the season. Peters carried for 15 yards on the next play, setting up Orlando’s first scoring reception with 4:13 remaining in the first. Lehigh would bounce back to tie the game, getting a fortuitous bounce on a 3rd-and-11 play when Buzbee forced a fumble from Colvin (10 of 28, 69 yards, three interceptions), only to see Hawks’ tight end Alex Wojdowski fall on the loose ball at the New Hampshire 11 for a first down. Lehigh capitalized on the break, with tailback Jay Campbell racing into the end zone on the next play. The PAT knotted the score at 10 with 14:04 to go in the half. The seesaw swung back in UNH’s direction four minutes later when Toman hooked up with Fox on a 21-yard touchdown pass. Fox snared Toman’s throw on a crossing route inside Lehigh’s 10-yard line and fought his way the final few yards for the touchdown. The UNH defense once again flexed its collective muscle on Lehigh’s next drive, with junior defensive end Brian McNally sacking Colvin for a 10-yard loss, one of McNally’s seven tackles (four solo) on the afternoon. Two plays later, linebacker Matt Evans (10 tackles) applied pressure on Colvin, forcing an errant pass that was intercepted by Dino Vasso at Lehigh’s 35. The Wildcats took a 24-10 lead into the locker room after amassing a methodical 10-play, 80-yard drive that took five minutes off the clock. Toman went 5-for-5 on the drive for 50 yards, completing passes to five different receivers –Orlando, Fox, senior Chris Chandler (two catches-27 yards), senior Sean Jellison (one catch-4 yards/15 carries35 yards) and Peters, who took a swing pass in for a 14-yard score with 1:04 remaining in the half. UNH added to its lead on the opening possession of the second half when Toman threw his fourth touchdown pass of the game, finding a leaping Orlando in the left corner of the end zone with a 14-yard, back-shoulder fade, bumping the lead to 31-10 with 7:40 remaining in the third quarter. The highlight of the drive was Fox’s 33-yard reception at the Lehigh 19.

ORONO, Maine – Freshman kicker Mike MacArthur kicked two field goals, including a career-best 47-yarder that gave the 14th-ranked University of New Hampshire a 13-6 lead with 2:47 remaining in regulation, but the University of Maine blocked his 33-yard, game-winning attempt and got a 37-yard field goal from Brian Harvey in overtime to post a 16-13 victory over the Wildcats on Saturday night at Alfond Stadium. The victory allowed the Black Bears (2-3, 1-1 Colonial Athletic Association) to snap a seven-game losing streak against the Wildcats (2-3, 0-2) and take possession of the Brice-Cowell Musket, which goes to the winner of the annual rivalry matchup. With the score tied 13-13 at the end of regulation, UNH had the opening possession in overtime. Quarterback R.J. Toman lofted a 2nd-and-11 pass intended for Joey Orlando, but Maine defensive back Jerron McMillian cut in front for an interception, Maine’s third of the game. Maine began its overtime possession with a four-yard run by Jared Turcotte. On second down at the 21-yard line, Turcotte (21 rushes-71 yards) carried the ball for one yard and recovered his own fumble at the 20. Turcotte was stopped by Matt Evans and Alan Buzbee (12 tackles) for no gain on third down. Following a UNH timeout, Harvey, who had a PAT blocked in the second quarter, connected on his 37-yard field goal attempt to end the game. After MacArthur’s 47-yarder, which bounced off the crossbar and through the uprights, gave New Hampshire a 13-6 lead late in the fourth quarter, Maine responded with a seven-play, 57-yard drive culminating in a 16-yard touchdown pass from Warren Smith (19 of 28, 253 yards, 2 TD, 2 INT) to Derek Buttles (three catches-48 yards-TD). The extra point knotted the score, 13-13, with 1:12 remaining. The Wildcats then drove 50 yards on five plays, including a 39-yard pass from Toman (26-for-38, TD, 3 INT) to tight end Sean Cullen, setting the stage for MacArthur’s attempt with two seconds remaining. Brent Rice blocked the field goal, forcing UNH’s first overtime game since the two teams met here in 2006. New Hampshire, which trailed 6-3 at halftime, claimed its first lead of the contest by marching 57 yards on seven plays on its initial drive of the third quarter. Orlando (six catches-62 yards) drew a pass interference penalty for a first down at the Black Bears’ 17. Facing a 3rd-and-4 just three plays later, Orlando went up the ladder to snatch a six-yard reception from Toman, putting the ball at the Maine 5. On the very next play, senior Terrance Fox, who had a game-high eight catches for 81 yards, went airborne at the right pylon to nab his team-leading fourth touchdown reception of the season and Toman’s eighth scoring toss. The extra point from MacArthur gave the ‘Cats a 10-6 lead with 10:54 remaining in the third quarter. After a scoreless first period, Maine struck first with 13:25 remaining in the second quarter on an 11-yard touchdown pass from Smith to tight end Jeff Falvey, who made a leaping catch on a seam route along the right hash marks for his first touchdown catch of the season. UNH sophomore defensive tackle Jared Smith blocked the extra point, however, keeping the Black Bears’ lead at 6-0. Maine threatened to build on the lead on its next drive, advancing to the UNH 23 before Kyle Flemings intercepted Smith’s pass in the end zone for his second pick in as many weeks.Greer was the catalyst for New Hampshire’s first points of the game, as the senior registered his first career interception, picking off Smith’s pass at the Wildcats’ 45 and taking it back 15 yards to the Maine 40 with a little over five minutes remaining in the second quarter. Toman then connected with Cullen (career-high five catches-91 yards) for a 17-yard pick-up, putting the ball on the Black Bears’ 23-yard line. Four plays later, UNH trimmed the deficit to 6-3 with 3:10 remaining in the first half on MacArthur’s 32-yard field goal.

DURHAM, N.H. – Safety John Greer grabbed two of the University of New Hampshire football team’s six interceptions, returning his first pick 40 yards for a touchdown, and the 22nd-ranked Wildcats recorded their school-record 12th consecutive home victory by shutting out No. 11 Richmond, 17-0, Saturday afternoon before a Homecoming crowd of 12,095 at Cowell Stadium. Safety Mike Perkins also notched two interceptions for UNH (3-3, 1-2 Colonial Athletic Association) while cornerback Kyle Flemings and cornerback Dino Vasso each recorded his third interception of the season for a Wildcats’ defense that posted its first shutout since a 56-0 triumph over Iona on Nov. 12, 2005. The loss snapped an 11-game FCS road winning streak for Richmond (2-3, 0-2). UNH continually harassed Richmond backup quarterback Nick Hicks, who finished the day 9-for-27 for 64 yards and five interceptions after replacing injured starter Aaron Corp (2 of 3, INT, seven yards) following the Spiders’ first offensive series. That first series ended with the Wildcats securing a 7-0 lead with 12:40 remaining in the opening quarter when Greer intercepted a 3rd-and-3 pass from Corp along the left sideline, sprinting untouched 40 yards for his first career touchdown. Kicker Mike MacArthur added the extra-point. Corp was injured on the play and did not return. The UNH defense forced a second turnover with 5:11 to go in the first when safety Ryan McGuinness (four tackles) knocked the ball loose from Spider running back Tyler Kirchoff (17 rushes-108 yards), and linebacker Matt Evans recovered for the ‘Cats at the UNH 42. Evans finished the game with 12 tackles, including the first individual sack of his career; and safety Hugo Souza matched Evans with a team-leading 12 stops.The Wildcats’ defense created a third turnover with 12:15 remaining in the second quarter. Facing pressure from defensive end Brian McNally, Hicks under-threw a deep pass to the left side that was picked off by Perkins at the UNH 35. After being held to only 64 yards of offense in the first half, the Wildcats gained 61 yards on six plays on their opening drive of the third quarter, culminating in a 20-yard touchdown pass from quarterback R.J. Toman to wide receiver Joey Orlando. Orlando (seven catches-93 yards) fought off defensive back Tremayne Graham to snatch Toman’s corner-route pass just inside the left pylon with 12:11 to go in the third quarter, helping the Wildcats go in front, 14-0. It was the ninth touchdown pass of the season for Toman, who went 20 of 29 for 166 yards, and Orlando’s third scoring reception of the year. The key play of the drive was another Toman-to-Orlando connection, as the duo hooked up for a 28-yard pass play on a 3rd-and-2 over-the-shoulder fade down the left sideline, spotting the ball at Richmond’s 25. New Hampshire increased its lead to 17-0, courtesy of MacArthur’s 34-yard field goal from the left hash mark with 2:25 remaining in the third. The field goal was set up by Greer’s second interception of the afternoon, a pick of Hicks that was returned 20 yards to Richmond’s 15. The Spiders’ best threat came late in the third quarter when Justin Rogers (91 all-purpose yards) returned a punt 54 yards to the UNH 11-yard line. Again, though, the defense refused to yield. Perkins (five tackles) stuffed Kirchoff for two yards on first down, Rogers was wrapped up by Evans and Souza for two yards on second down, Jared Smith (career-high six tackles) and Alan Buzbee (seven tackles) combined for a sack of Hicks on third down and Hicks’ fourth-down pass went incomplete. Sean Jellison led the Wildcats’ ground game with 15 carries for 40 yards.

HARRISONBURG, Va. – Matt Evans returned a fumble for a touchdown, forced another and amassed a game-high and career-high-tying 14 tackles as the 15th ranked University of New Hampshire football team upset sixth-ranked James Madison, 28-14, on Saturday afternoon at Bridgeforth Stadium. The Wildcats outscored the Dukes, 18-0, in the second half to record their first win at JMU since Sept. 28, 1996. Dino Vasso added two interceptions for a UNH defense that tallied four sacks, forced three turnovers and held the Dukes to only 11 first downs in the game. R.J. Toman went 22 of 40 for 248 yards and a touchdown, Dontra Peters carried the ball 11 times for 60 yards and a score and Terrance Fox hauled in a team-leading six receptions for 52 yards and a touchdown. The Wildcats’ defense, which forced seven turnovers in last weekend’s shutout of Richmond, produced the first points of the game at 12:04 of the first quarter. On a 2nd-and-4 play from the JMU 20, Duke quarterback Drew Dudzik (10-of-23, 157 yards, 2 INT) kept the ball up the middle, but Hugo Souza (five tackles, forced fumble) jarred the ball loose and Evans recovered the fumble, returning it 17 yards untouched into the end zone. UNH led 7-0 at 12:04 following the ensuing PAT by Mike MacArthur. James Madison (4-2, 1-2 Colonial Athletic Association) responded on its next possession with an eight-play, 77-yard drive that was capped off with a two-yard touchdown run by Scott Noble (19 carries-100 yards-2 TD) to tie the score, 7-7, with 8:19 remaining in the first quarter. On its first offensive possession of the game, UNH (4-3, 2-2) marched 42 yards in seven plays to regain the lead, 10-7, on MacArthur’s 30-yard field goal with 6:05 to go in the first. That score was set up by a 22-yard run by Peters that advanced the ball to the JMU 13. Dae’Quon Scott’s 53-yard punt return gave JMU excellent field position at the UNH 11 and set up the game’s next score, a Noble two-yard run that staked the home team to its first lead of the game, 14-10, with 7:32 remaining in the first half. On the opening kickoff of the second half, Peters’ 41-yard return gave New Hampshire the ball on the JMU 40. Toman connected with Sean Cullen (four catches-66 yards) down the right sideline for a 25-yard gain to the Dukes’ 10 to set up MacArthur’s 26-yard field goal that pulled the ‘Cats within 14-13 at 12:17. UNH regained the lead for good, 21-14, with an eight-play, 64-yard drive that spanned the third and fourth quarters. Facing 3rd-and-9 at the 13, Fox went in motion, caught the ball in the left flat and scampered untouched into the end zone behind a lead block by Joey Orlando. UNH converted a 2-point conversion on a shovel-pass from Toman to Sean Jellison. On the Dukes’ ensuing possession, Vasso made an athletic play to intercept the ball at the UNH 22. With 10:38 remaining in the game, the ‘Cats began an eight-play, 78-yard drive that consumed 4:13 off the clock and extended the advantage to 28-14 at 6:25. After a three-yard loss on first down, Toman’s pass attempt to Cullen was jarred out of the tight end’s arms but caught in mid-air by senior wide receiver Chris Chandler for a nine-yard gain. The Wildcats proceeded to keep the ground for the final six plays on the drive, with Jellison (nine carries-58 yards; three receptions-30 yards) gaining 33 yards on three carries and Peters finishing off the drive with a 14-yard touchdown sweep around the left end. Vasso added his second interception of the game when he grabbed Dudzik’s deep pass that caromed off Souza’s shoulder pad at the UNH 24-yard line with 6:04 remaining, allowing the Wildcats to snap a 10-game CAA road losing streak in Virginia.

FOXBORO, Mass. – The ninth-ranked UNH football team made history with a 39-13 victory over arch-rival and 12th-ranked Massachusetts before a CAA-record crowd of 32,848 in the inaugural Colonial Clash, the first-ever collegiate football game at Gillette Stadium. UNH linebacker Matt Evans was the 25th recipient of the prestigious Bill Knight Trophy as the game’s MVP after recording a game-high 13 tackles, notching his first career interception and forcing a fumble for the Wildcats. Running back Dontra Peters gained 98 yards on 23 carries, scoring a pair of rushing touchdowns, and quarterback R.J. Toman ran for two scores and threw for another. Toman was 14 of 26 for 176 yards and a touchdown. New Hampshire, the designated home team at the home of the New England Patriots, jumped out to a 29-0 lead over Massachusetts en route to its third straight win over a ranked league opponent. The ‘Cats capitalized on an early UMass turnover to take the lead with 6:10 remaining in the opening quarter. A 33-yard punt from Kyle Auffray grazed the leg of a Massachusetts player, and cornerback Kyle Flemings alertly pounced on the loose ball at UMass’s 14-yard line. Three plays later Toman carried in from one yard out, and UNH converted the two-point conversion on a pass play from Kevin Decker to Chris Chandler for an 8-0 advantage. UMass had one threat denied when Caleb Violette was wide right on a 45-yard field goal attempt with 12:17 to go in the first half. Later in the quarter, the Minutemen drove to the UNH 35, but a fumble from Jonathan Griffin was recovered by Brian McNally at the 36. The Wildcats then went on a 12play, 64-yard drive with Peters taking it in from three yards out and Mike MacArthur tacking on the extra point to make it 15-0 with 5:44 to go in the half. UNH went on a systematic 10-play, 99-yard drive midway through the third with Toman finishing it off with his second one-yard touchdown plunge of the game and third rushing score of the season, making the score 22-0. Toman went 3-for-4 on the drive, completing a 29-yard pass to Kevon Mason and a 26-yard pass to Terrance Fox. Fox (three catches, 31 yards; 3 carries, 24 yards) made an additional grab for one yard and then set the stage for Toman’s touchdown by taking a reverse 17 yards to the UMass 1. That margin would balloon to 29-0 when Toman found Joey Orlando in the deep right corner of the end zone for an 11-yard touchdown with 2:26 remaining in the third. Peters accounted for 22 yards on four carries during the drive, and Orlando (four catches, 50 yards) preceded his fourth touchdown reception of the season with a nifty back-shoulder grab on 4th-and-1, gaining 21 yards to the UMass 37. Peters’ second scoring run, a two-yarder with 7:42 to go in the game, staked UNH to a 36-6 lead. Dino Vasso returned UMass’s onsides kick 17 yards, giving the Wildcats a short field to work with at the Massachusetts 23. Sean Jellison ran twice for 10 yards; Decker (1-for-2, 11 yards; four rushes, 19 yards), in relief of Toman, hooked up with Mike Greene for 11 yards before calling his own number and scampering 13 yards to the UMass 2. A.J. Delago provided the game’s final points with an 18-yard field goal with 3:38 remaining. UMass scored all 13 of its points in the fourth quarter. Rob Blanchflower recovered a fumble from Anthony Nelson, forced by Evans, in the end zone with 10:28 to go, and Julian Talley caught a 14-yard pass from Kyle Havens with 5:47 remaining. Havens went 32 of 55 for a career-high 450 yards, but was intercepted by Evans at the UNH 17 on the first play of the fourth quarter. Nelson made a game-high 11 catches for 190 yards in the loss. The previous record crowd for a CAA game came Oct. 16, 2010, at Delaware Stadium, where the Blue Hens hosted Rhode Island.

DURHAM, N.H.- Sophomore linebacker Matt Evans recorded a career-high 20 tackles, and the eighth-ranked University of New Hampshire football team held No. 4 William & Mary to only 171 yards of total offense, but the Tribe snapped the Wildcats’ school-record 12-game home winning streak with a 13-3 victory Saturday afternoon at Cowell Stadium. William & Mary improved to 7-2 overall and remained atop the Colonial Athletic Association with a 5-1 mark. UNH slipped to 5-4 overall and 3-3 in the CAA. Nine of Evans’ 20 tackles were solo stops, giving him a CAA-leading 113 tackles on the season. Junior defensive end Brian McNally matched a career high with 1.5 sacks, bringing his league-leading total to 7.0, and Hugo Souza made a season-high 14 tackles, eight solo, jumping three spots to sixth on UNH’s all-time tackles’ list with 309 career stops. Senior quarterback R.J. Toman went 26 of 44 for 232 yards and an interception. The 44 attempts matched a career high, and Toman’s 14 rushing yards on 13 carries, including three sacks, led a Wildcats’ ground game that managed only 39 yards on 31 rushes. Senior wide receiver Terrance Fox made eight receptions for 70 yards –both game-highs- and his 126 all-purpose yards also set the pace. The Wildcats were held to just three points for the first time since Sept. 21, 2002. Tribe running back Jonathan Grimes rushed 30 times for 114 yards and a touchdown in the victory, offsetting an impotent W&M passing game that amassed only 30 yards with third-string quarterback Brent Caprio going 5-for-10 in his first career start. After a scoreless first period, the Wildcats took a 3-0 lead on the first play of the second quarter, courtesy of a 40-yard field goal from freshman kicker Mike MacArthur. A 19-yard punt return from Souza put UNH in terrific field position at the Tribe’s 39-yard line to begin the drive. Sean Jellison (five carries, 12 yards/four receptions, 27 yards) carried twice for six yards, and Toman completed a four-yard pass to Fox and a two-yard pass to Dontra Peters ( 10 carries, 11 yards/two catches, 11 yards), advancing inside the red zone for the only time in the contest. William & Mary nabbed a 6-3 lead with 7:41 remaining in the first half when Caprio connected with wide receiver Chase Hill for a 19-yard touchdown pass in the far left corner of the end zone. It was Caprio’s first career scoring toss and Hill’s first touchdown reception of the season. The PAT failed. The Wildcats threatened late in the half, moving the ball to the Tribe 21 with 29 seconds to go when Toman’s pass intended for sophomore Joey Orlando (one catch, 20 yards) in the end zone was picked off by safety Jake O’Connor, preserving the College’s 3-0 lead at the intermission. William & Mary capitalized on a muffed punt by Fox, which was recovered by Jabrel Mines at the UNH 35 with 2:00 left in the third quarter. Grimes then ran the ball three straight times, gaining nine yards, 25 yards and plunging in from one yard out for his eighth rushing touchdown of the season. Drake Kuhn atoned for his earlier miss by connecting on the extra point, staking the Tribe to a 13-3 lead with 1:04 left in the third quarter. Neither team scored in the fourth period, as William & Mary defeated New Hampshire for the eighth time in a row. In fact, the Tribe’s win was the first by a visiting time at Mooradian Field since William & Mary’s 38-34 victory over UNH on Oct. 11, 2008.

VILLANOVA, Pa. – UNH defensive end Brian McNally strip-sacked Villanova quarterback Chris Whitney on a 2nd-and-goal play from the UNH 5-yard line, and Cody Muller recovered the ensuing fumble with 13 seconds left in the fourth quarter to preserve the 17th-ranked football team’s 31-24 upset victory over ninth-ranked Villanova on Saturday afternoon at Villanova Stadium. Dontra Peters carried 12 times for 157 yards and a touchdown, and R.J. Toman passed for two touchdowns and ran for another for UNH, which improved to 6-4 overall and 4-3 in the CAA after earning its school-record fourth win against a ranked opponent this season. Toman went 11 of22 for 158 yards and one interception, and he added 23 rushing yards on 14 attempts. The senior signal caller moved into second place on UNH’s all-time passing yards’ list with 7,784, surpassing Ryan Day (7,670) and Bob Jean (7,742). Whitney went 16 of 36 for 192 yards through the air and led ‘Nova with 88 rushing yards on 24 carries with two touchdowns. Aaron Ball added 82 yards on 19 carries, but Villanova fell to 6-4, 4-3 in the CAA. The loss also snapped its 15-game home winning streak, as ‘Nova fell to 23-2 in its last 25 home games. Villanova committed a turnover on the first play from scrimmage when Whitney fumbled on an option run, with safety Ryan McGuinness recovering on ‘Nova’s 24-yard line. New Hampshire failed to capitalize, as a 40-yard field goal from A.J DeLago was negated by a false-start penalty, forcing the ‘Cats to punt. On the very next series, the UNH defense forced a Villanova three-andout, with defensive end James Jenkins (career-high-tying seven tackles) sacking Whitney for a six-yard loss to highlight the series. Hugo Souza returned the subsequent punt 12 yards, giving UNH possession at its own 42. Three plays later, Peters took a pitch around the right edge and dashed 51 yards for a touchdown, his team-leading seventh rushing score of the year. Following DeLago’s extra point, it was a 7-0 UNH lead with 10:49 remaining in the first. ‘Nova fumbled the ensuing kickoff, and Mike Perkins dove on the loose ball at the ‘Nova 16. Peters’ 12-yard cutback run gave UNH 1st-and-goal at the Villanova 4, but New Hampshire had to settle for three when DeLago connected for a 22-yard field goal, upping the lead to 10-0 with 9:09 to go in the first. The home team got on the scoreboard with 10:40 remaining in the half by putting together a 17-play, 86-yard drive that ended in a 10-yard touchdown run from Angelo Babbaro on an option pitch, trimming UNH’s lead to 10-7. The Wildcats struck back when Toman took in a 10-yard keeper off the left side for a score, giving UNH a 17-7 lead with 8:54 left in the half. Villanova scored on its next possession, with kicker Mark Hamilton hitting a 29-yard field goal –the first of his career- with 5:53 left in the first half, reducing New Hampshire’s lead to 17-10. UNH would go in front, 24-10, with 5:32 remaining in the half when Toman hit Joey Orlando in stride deep down the middle for a 56-yard touchdown pass, the longest pass play of the season and a career-best reception for the sophomore wide receiver. Villanova would answer one more time before the intermission, scoring when Whitney called his own number for a five-yard touchdown with 3:23 remaining in the second, slicing UNH’s lead to 24-17 at the break. That lead ballooned to 14 points for the second time in the game as Fox (team-high five catches, 56 yards, TD) was on the receiving end of a Toman touchdown pass just inside the right edge of the end zone for a 31-17 lead with 5:08 left in the third. Villanova climbed back within a touchdown just 10 seconds into the fourth when Whitney carried in from two yards out for his second scoring run of the afternoon, dropping UNH’s advantage to 31-24. Facing 3rdand-5 at the UNH 20 with 30 seconds to play, a pass interference call spotted the ball at the 5. Whitney threw the ball away on 1st-and-goal before McNally forced the game-winning fumble by notching his CAA-leading ninth sack of the season. The 31 points scored by the Wildcats matched the most this season allowed by a Villanova defense that came into the game tied for third in the nation in scoring defense (14.2 ppg).

DURHAM, N.H.-Playing in their final regular season home game, seniors Kevon Mason, Mike Greene and Kyle Auffray all collected their first touchdown receptions of the year, and classmate R.J. Toman went a perfect eight-for-eight for 95 yards and two scoring tosses in limited playing time as the 13th-ranked University of New Hampshire football team rolled to a 38-19 triumph over Towson University on Saturday afternoon at Cowell Stadium. UNH (7-4, 5-3 Colonial Athletic Association) strengthened its bid for a seventh consecutive NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) playoff appearance by earning its fifth win in six games. Towson concluded its season with a mark of 1-10 and 0-8 in the CAA. Mason finished with four catches for 41 yards while Sean Jellison led the ground game with 14 carries for 57 yards. Jellison eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark in career rushing yards with 1,025. In notable defensive performances, Matt Evans notched a 25-yard interception return for a touchdown and forced a fumble. Evans’ seven tackles in the game raised his CAA-leading total to 135 on the season, good for third all-time in UNH single-season history. Additionally, Kyle Flemings recorded an interception and a fumble recovery. The Tigers received the opening kickoff and scored on their first drive. Quarterback Brian Potts, making his second career start, connected with Sherman Greene on a 56-yard post pattern, putting the ball on the Wildcats’ 19-yard line. Four plays later, Towson seized a 3-0 lead on a 28-yard field goal from Nick Wallace with 12:01 left in the first quarter. That lead would be short-lived. UNH countered by scoring a touchdown on its initial drive, converting three third-down plays on its 12-play, 78-yard drive. Facing third-and-goal from the Towson 6, Toman rolled right and lofted a scoring pass to Mason in the back right corner of the end zone. Mason’s first touchdown reception since Sept. 5, 2009, helped the Wildcats take a 7-3 advantage with 6:54 left in the first period. New Hampshire’s defense jump-started its next scoring drive. On third-and-17, defensive end Brian McNally pressured Potts, who subsequently was intercepted by Flemings, giving UNH the ball at its 46. Toman then gained three yards on an option rush before pitching to Terrance Fox, who picked up an additional 10 yards on the play. Three snaps later, Toman’s second touchdown pass of the afternoon was a 28-yard hook-up with Greene, who broke free racing down the left sideline for his first career scoring grab, making it a 14-3 Wildcats’ lead with 4:08 left in the first. The lead increased to 17-3 on a 31-yard field goal from Mike MacArthur with 12:31 remaining in the first half, and then Evans snared a Potts pass for his second interception of the season, taking it 25 yards for a pick-six that lifted New Hampshire to a commanding 24-3 lead with 11:43 to go before the half. It was the fourth time in three seasons the Wildcats have returned an interception for a touchdown against the Tigers. UNH would take a 31-3 lead to the locker room. Filling in for the injured Toman, Kevin Decker orchestrated a 12-play, 82-yard drive that culminated in a 12-yard touchdown pass to Auffray, who notched his first career scoring catch on a drag route along the left side of the goal line with 1:47 left in the second quarter. Towson managed to score a safety with 10:52 left in the third quarter, cutting the UNH lead to 31-5. Decker (12 of 17, 82 yards, TD/six carries-31 yards, TD) registered the Wildcats’ final score by calling his own number for a 20-yard touchdown run, his first of the season, with 5:32 left in the third quarter, making the score 38-5. Hakeem Moore scored on a 64-yard catch-and-run pass from Potts with 14:52 left in the contest for Towson, and Potts added a two-yard rushing touchdown with 1:00 remaining to cap the scoring.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. –Making his first start of the season in place of injured starter R.J. Toman, junior quarterback Kevin Decker threw for three second-half touchdowns to lead the 10th-ranked UNH Wildcats to a 45-20 victory over 13th-ranked Bethune-Cookman University in the second round of the NCAA Division I Football Championship on Saturday afternoon. New Hampshire, which improves to 8-4 with the win, advances to meet No. 3 seed Delaware next weekend in the national quarterfinals. The Blue Hens dispatched Lehigh, 42-20, in their secondround game Saturday.The Wildcats earn the first December win in school history in eight tries and win a postseason game for the sixth time in the last seven seasons. Bethune-Cookman, the MEAC champion making its first postseason appearance since 2003, sees its season end with a record of 10-2. With the game tied 14-14 entering the third period, UNH exploded for 21 thirdquarter points. Decker, making only his second career start, found sophomore Joey Orlando for a five-yard touchdown at 10:45; Chris Chandler hauled in his first career scoring grab, a 63-yard catch-and-run score at 5:25; and Terrance Fox was on the receiving end of a 14-yard score that put the game effectively out of reach, 35-14, with 58 seconds remaining in the third quarter. Chris Setian put the exclamation point on the triumph by carrying for a five-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter (at 8:41) for his first career score, and A.J. DeLago kicked a 30-yard field goal with 2:10 left to cap UNH’s scoring. Senior captain Sean Jellison carried seven times for 29 yards and two touchdowns, his first two scoring rushes of the season, in the first half before being sidelined in the second half. UNH took a 7-0 lead with 6:20 remaining in the first quarter on a five-yard touchdown run from Jellison. The drive began on the Bethune-Cookman 44-yard line when senior captain Dino Vasso hauled in his CAA-leading sixth interception of the season on a deep fade along the left sideline, giving the ‘Cats possession at the B-CU 44yard line. Advantageous field position played a helpful role in Jellison’s second scoring run of the first quarter, a nine-yard scamper off right tackle that capped a four-play, 40-yard drive for a 14-0 lead with 6:20 remaining. Bethune-Cookman used a big play to get on the scoreboard early in the second quarter when Courtney Keith took a swing pass and outran the defense for a 53-yard touchdown. That sliced New Hampshire’s lead to 14-7 with 13:50 left in the first half. The home-standing Wildcats knotted the score at 14-14 by virtue of a nine-play, 75-yard drive that culminated in a 10-yard touchdown pass from Jackie Wilson to Isidore Jackson with 3:51 remaining before halftime. The Wildcats will visit No. 3 seed and CAA rival Delaware in the quarterfinal round of the NCAA D-I Football Championship on Friday, Dec. 10, at 8:00 p.m. live on ESPN 2 HD and ESPN3.com.

NEWARK, Del. – Terrance Fox matched a career high with 11 catches for 72 yards, and Brian McNally became the all-time single-season sack leader in University of New Hampshire history, but the 10th-ranked Wildcats had their season end in the NCAA Division I Football Championship quarterfinals with a 16-3 setback at the hands of the fifth-ranked University of Delaware on Friday night at Delaware Stadium. Delaware, which upped its record to 11-2 by ending a three-game losing streak against New Hampshire, will host the winner of Saturday’s Wofford/Georgia Southern quarterfinal game in the national semifinals either Friday, Dec. 17, or Saturday, Dec. 18. UNH’s season ends with a record of 8-5 after the Wildcats fell in the quarterfinal round of the playoffs for the sixth time in seven seasons, and for the third time to a CAA opponent (Massachusetts-2006, Villanova-2009). The Wildcats struck first, grabbing a 3-0 lead with 2:35 left in the opening quarter on a 23-yard field goal from Mike MacArthur. UNH strung together a 14-play, 75-yard drive that chopped 6:14 off the clock. Quarterback R.J. Toman used his legs for the two biggest plays of the possession: a 17-yard scamper on third-and-10, taking the ball from the Wildcats’ 49 to the Blue Hens’ 34, and an 18-yard run off right tackle, with a key lead block from Chris Setian, that set up first-and-goal at the 10. McNally officially set the school record for sacks in a single season when he hauled down UD quarterback Pat Devlin for an eight-yard loss on a third-and-11 play late in the first quarter. The All-CAA First Team defensive end added a second sack in the third quarter, giving him 13.5 for the season. Delaware tied the game, 3-3, when Mike Perry connected for a 25-yard field goal with 3:00 remaining in the first half, capping a 15-play, 85-yard drive. The Hens were pinned back to their own seven-yard line following a career-high 67-yard punt from Kyle Auffray, but Devlin went to work on the Wildcats’ defense, completing eight of nine passes for 64 yards on the six-minute, 48-second drive. The teams went to the halftime deadlocked at 3. The Blue Hens moved in front with 7:09 remaining in the third quarter when Devlin hit Nihja White on a deep left out route for a 24-yard touchdown. The extra point went wide right, keeping Delaware’s lead at 9-3. Earlier in the drive, it was a Devlin-to-White 12-yard hook-up on third-and-five that extended the possession and pushed the ball into Wildcats’ territory at the 42. Devlin threw his second touchdown pass of the night, and 20th of the season, with 13:04 remaining in the game, hitting Mark Schneauer on third-and-goal from the UNH 9, giving Delaware a 16-3 advantage. That play capped a 10-play, 87-yard drive that consumed 4:02 off the clock. UNH drove to the Delaware 27 yard line, but Toman was intercepted on a 4th-and-9 play with just under six minutes remaining. The Blue Hens sealed the victory with a 12-play drive lasting 5:36.

UNH FOOTBALL - NATION-LEADING 7 STRAIGHTNCAAAPPEARANCES

The Colonial Athletic Association

Four NCAA Championship game appearances in four years under the CAA Football banner and more than 47 percent of its games on television...quite a way to begin an era! CAA Football raised the profile of what was once the Yankee Conference and later the Atlantic 10 Conference when it took the reins of the league in 2007. Now four years into the CAA’s leadership the league has moved from one of the power conferences in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision to arguably the most successful conference in the division in terms of on-the-field success, television exposure, marketability and success of its players at the next level. The league’s marketability will only continue to grow as it adds Old Dominion to its roster in 2011, and later Georgia State, based in Atlanta, Ga., in 2012. Delaware pushed CAA Football’s streak to five straight national championship game appearances and seven in the last eight years. The league’s non-conference success was evidenced again last season by a 22-6 (.786) mark against FCS foes while James Madison pushed the league’s win total to three over teams from the ACC in the last two years with an epic 21-16 victory at nationallyranked Virginia Tech. CAA Football has won 10 games over BCS/FBS foes in the last five seasons and 19 contests against the upper level of major college football in the last 10 years. CAA Football continued its stronghold in the national polls, showing seven teams ranked over a nine week stretch and a total of three teams at No. 1 during the 2010 season. Even more impressive was a four-week stretch from Sept. 20-Oct. 11 when league squads occupied five of the Top-10 spots in The Sports Network poll. An expanded NCAA Playoff field in 2010 allowed CAA Football to extend its streak to four straight years of four or more squads appearing in the postseason. Both Delaware and William and Mary earned Top-5 seeds, while Villanova and New Hampshire had to go on the road for their postseason openers. Delaware dispatched of Lehigh and New Hampshire won at Bethune-Cookman to set up an All-CAA Football matchup in Newark in the quarterfinal round. Villanova rattled off 40 unanswered points to come from behind at Stephen F. Austin and advance while the Tribe struggled to stop the triple-option attack of Georgia Southern and fell to the Eagles in its postseason opener. Delaware and New Hampshire renewed a CAA Football rivalry in the quarterfinal round and a defensive battle ensued as the Blue Hens advanced giving the league a semifinalist for the fifth straight year. Villanova got a total of five touchdowns from Matt Szczur to upset top-seeded Appalachian State at The Rock and march into the semifinal round. Villanova could not regain its early lead on the road at Eastern Washington and fell to the Eagles, but Delaware forced five Georgia Southern turnovers which helped it advance to the 2011 NCAA Division I National Championship game for the second time in four seasons. The Blue Hens dropped a 20-19 decision to Eastern Washington at the new home of the National Championship game, Pizza Hut Park in Frisco, Texas. The league has earned 75 total playoff berths, including 35 in the last 10 seasons. Getting into the playoffs isn’t where the success stops, as evidenced by 50 playoff wins since 2001. CAA Football has continued to make its presence felt at the national level by placing nine teams in the national semifinal round over the last five seasons and advancing a team to the national title game each of those five years as well. Richmond’s National Championship in 2008 and Villanova’s 2009 title are the most recent championships for the league. In 2004, James Madison claimed the national championship with a 31-21 triumph over Montana, becoming the first team to reach the title game by winning three road playoff contests since the field expanded to 16 teams in 1986. Delaware rolled past Colgate 40-0 to capture the national championship in 2003, becoming the first team to ever post a shutout in the title game. No other conference has had two different teams win national titles in back-to-back years and CAA Football has done it twice (2003- 04 & 2008-09). Massachusetts earned a national championship in 1998, beating perennial power Georgia Southern, 55-43. Along with the team accomplishments, the conference has accumulated numerous individual accolades. New Hampshire quarterback Ricky Santos (2006), William and Mary quarterback Lang Campbell (2004), Villanova running back Brian Westbrook (2001), Villanova wide receiver Brian Finneran (1997), New Hampshire running back Jerry Azumah (1998) and Towson running back Dave Meggett (1988) all have won the prestigious Walter Payton Award under the league banner. James Madison linebacker Derrick Lloyd (2001) and defensive lineman Arthur Moats (2009) each received the Buck Buchanan Award. New Hampshire’s Sean McDonnell (2005), James Madison’s Mickey Matthews (1999 & 2008), Villanova’s Andy Talley (1997) and Boston University’s Dan Allen (1993) have earned the Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year Award. Delaware’s K.C. Keeler (2010), Richmond’s Mike London (2008), Matthews (2004), Massachusetts’ Mark Whipple (1998) and Talley (1997 & 2009) have garnered the American Football Coaches Association National Coach of the Year honor. Success beyond the collegiate playing field can be measured in numerous ways. CAA Football has had 98 players drafted by NFL franchises dating back to 1948. A total of 24 players have been selected in the draft over the last 10 years, including the league’s second-highest draft pick ever -- former Delaware Blue Hen quarterback Joe Flacco (18th overall to the Baltimore Ravens). The league has also excelled in graduating student-athletes as 10 programs have earned NCAA Public Recognition Awards over the last three years for ranking among the Top 10 percent of the FCS in the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rating system. The CAA Football geographic footprint encompasses much of the East Coast with schools located from Maine to Virginia. Current members include Delaware, James Madison, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Old Dominion, Rhode Island, Richmond, Towson, Villanova and William and Mary, while Georgia State will join the fold as a full member in 2012. While CAA Football officially began March 1, 2007, its roots date back more than 60 years. On December 3, 1946, the Code of the Yankee Conference went into effect. Established as an all-sports conference for the New England land grant colleges, the six charter members included Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. Upon the formation of Division I-AA football in 1978, the league disbanded all sports except football. Delaware and Richmond were admitted to the conference in 1986, Villanova was added in 1988 and James Madison, Northeastern and William and Mary joined the league in 1993. The Atlantic 10 assumed operation control of the conference from 1997- 2006, with Hofstra becoming part of the league in 2001 and Towson joining the group in 2004.

President

The administration

Mark W. Huddleston became the 19th president of the University of New Hampshire in July 2007, bringing three decades of experience in public and private education as a faculty member, dean, and senior administrator. Huddleston has been a strong advocate for increasing affordability and accessibility in higher education, and has argued that we need to rethink much of what we do to protect our core missions, and to ensure that higher education remains vital and financially sustainable in the 21st century. In February 2010, he presented a 10-year strategic plan for UNH, the result of an intensive collaboration between faculty, students, staff, alumni, and the University’s wider communities. Emphasizing innovation and entrepreneurship, the plan is helping to guide the University’s response to a historic state budget cut passed by the 2011 New Hampshire Legislature. “The strategic plan commits us to finding new ways to teach, learn, discover, create, and engage in the 21st century—and positions UNH to become a national leader in the redefinition of American higher education,” Huddleston says. Huddleston was raised in Syracuse, N.Y., and was the first member of his family ever to attend college. He earned his bachelor’s degree in political science from the State University of New York-Buffalo, and both a master’s degree and Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He began his academic career at SUNY-Buffalo in 1977 as an assistant professor of political science. In 1980, he joined the faculty of the University of Delaware, where he served for the next 24 years. There, he chaired the Department of Political Science and International Relations and served as associate provost for international programs. In 2001, he was named dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, overseeing 45 academic departments and centers with nearly 900 full-time faculty and staff, and serving in that capacity until he was named president of Ohio Wesleyan University in 2004. An author of numerous books and articles, he has been a consultant for both the U.S. government and international organizations. He also served as an adviser in Bosnia on rebuilding financial and administrative infrastructures after the Dayton accords. Huddleston is chair of the Presidents Council of the America East Conference, an incorporator of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, and a member of the Board of Trustees of the Speedway Children’s Charities. Huddleston and his wife, Emma Bricker, have three children, Andy, Kate, and Giles.

The administration

director of athletics

The 2011-12 academic year represents the 12th season Marty Scarano has served as the Director of Athletics at the University of New Hampshire. During his tenure, Scarano has heightened national exposure for UNH athletics with academics, facility renovations and programmatic advancement being top priorities. With a Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of 95 percent among its student-athletes in 2010-11, UNH ranked highest in the America East Conference, the Colonial Athletic Association and second nationally among all public institutions. The field hockey, women’s gymnastics, men’s soccer, women’s ice hockey, women’s skiing, women’s track & field and women’s volleyball teams all posted perfect 100 percent GSRs while the football team notched a 95 percent mark, tied for fifth-best in the nation in its respective sport. Four Wildcat teams were honored by the NCAA for multiyear Academic Progress Rates (APRs) in the top 10 percent of all teams in their respective sports: football, men’s indoor track & field, men’s outdoor track & field and women’s gymnastics, with the football program compiling the best APR among all CAA institutions. UNH finished second in the America East Academic Cup for the third time in the last four years, achieving a 3.13 cumulative grade-point average. The Wildcats had the highest number of honorees on the 2010 America East Fall Academic Honor Roll and the second-highest percentage of student-athletes on the 2010-11 America East Winter/Spring Academic Honor Roll. During the 2010-11 campaign, men’s ice hockey, football, the men’s and women’s ski teams and gymnastics, as well as members of men’s and women’s outdoor track & field, all competed in the NCAA postseason. Because of these initiatives and accomplishments, UNH athletics has consistently been ranked among the top of Division I institutions in the battle for the Learfield Sports NACDA Directors’ Cup. This past season, the Wildcats ranked 76th out of more than 370 Division I schools with 242.50 points, which was the best in America East. The Wildcats finished third behind only Connecticut (44) and Boston College (64) in the New England region. Scarano’s many accomplishments have played a key role in UNH being named one of the Top 20 Athletic Departments in the Country in U.S. News and World Report college athletics rankings in March 2002. UNH’s graduation rate for athletes has maintained levels at or exceeding 90 percent, which puts it among the nation’s best in Division I. Scarano has focused on moving UNH athletics into the collegiate national arena. To accomplish that goal, the University has taken on the task of hosting major NCAA championships. The Wildcat athletic department has played host to highly successful NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Northeast Regionals at the Verizon Wireless Arena (Manchester, N.H.) in 2004, 2007, 2009 and 2011. UNH has had the opportunity to host two NCAA Women’s Ice Hockey Frozen Fours in the Whittemore Center in 2002 and 2005. In addition, UNH successfully hosted the 2007 NCAA Skiing Championships in Washington Valley as well as the 2005 NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Northeast Regional at the Whittemore Center Arena. The men’s hockey team, which extended the second-longest active streak of consecutive NCAA tournament appearances to 10 during the ’10-11 campaign, has claimed five Hockey East regular-season titles and participated in back-to-back Frozen Fours (2002-03) during the Scarano era. UNH football has qualified for the NCAA FCS postseason for a nation-leading seven straight seasons and has advanced to the quarterfinals six times in that span. The Wildcat women’s hockey team won the Hockey East Tournament Championship four straight seasons from 2006-09, which also included Frozen Four appearances in 2006 and 2008. The women’s gymnastics team won its first-ever EAGL title in 2003, when the event was hosted at the Whitt, and has reached the NCAA Regionals 10 times in Scarano’s 11 years at the helm. The volleyball team won an America East crown in 2002 and 2003 and went on to the NCAA tournament in those same seasons. The field hockey team qualified for the NCAAs in 2000, while women’s lacrosse made the NCAA tournament in 2004 and 2008. Additionally, 24 coaches have won 61 Coach of the Year awards during Scarano’s tenure. There have been over $9 million in capitol improvements since Scarano’s hiring in the summer of 2000. Most recently, as part of a $650,000 renovation project in the summer of 2011, the field turf at Bremner Field was replaced with a new state-of-the-art surface used by many varsity teams and for student recreational activities. In the fall of 2008, the Paul Sweet Oval renovation was completed to include new surfaces, lighting, painting, infrastructure upgrades and the replacement of windows that existed in the original architecture. The total cost of the project exceeded $500,000. In the summer of 2007, the Cowell Stadium grass field was replaced with a $1 million Field Turf synthetic surface. Additionally in 2007, a complete renovation of Lundholm Gymnasium was undertaken. The $600,000 renovation included a new state-of-the-art bleacher system, new scoreboards, competition baskets and other aesthetic enhancements. In 2007, Scarano was named the All-American Football Foundation Athletic Director of the Year for FCS football in the Northeast region. Scarano was also awarded the National Association of College Directors of Athletics (NACDA) AD of the Year for the FCS. Scarano also been an active member in the leadership of UNH’s three major conferences and was the chair of the executive committees for Atlantic 10 football, Hockey East and America East from 2003 to 2007. He also served as chair of the NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Committee in 2005-06 and 2006-07 and is currently on the America East Executive Council. Scarano held the position of Athletics Director at Colorado College from July 1996 through June 2000. During his tenure, Colorado College was ranked among the top 20 Division III programs in the Sears Cup national standings and produced several All-Americans, all-academic award winners and NCAA post-graduate scholarship recipients. Prior to his stay in Colorado Springs, Scarano worked for 13 years at Colgate University, where he served as assistant director of athletics, director of physical education, associate director, and senior associate director. Scarano, a native of Pittsburgh, Pa., is a 1978 graduate of Penn State University, where he started his athletic career as assistant ticket manager and the athletics events manager from 1980-83. Scarano holds a Master’s Degree in Environmental History from Colgate. He and his wife, Cydney, have three children, with daughter, Lynden, and son, Kyle, currently enrolled at UNH, while daughter, Corey, is a junior at Oyster River High School.

Strength & Conditioning

Paul Chapman enters his 10th year as the director of strength and conditioning at the University of New Hampshire and John Ciani is entering his 10th year with the UNH athletic department. After four years as an assistant coach in the University’s strength and conditioning office, Ciani was promoted to the position of Associate Director of Strength and Conditioning in 2006. Chapman and Ciani helped coordinate the building of the state-of-the-art Jerry Azumah Performance Center and both have been key in guiding UNH student-athletes to NCAA appearances in both women’s and men’s ice hockey, football, gymnastics, Paul John women’s volleyball, women’s lacrosse, skiing and track and field. Chapman is a member of the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association (strength and conditioning coach Chapman Ciani certified), USA Weightlifting (certified level 1 coach), the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and he was the state director of the National Strength and Conditioning Association in North Dakota from 1991-95. In 2005, he earned the title of Master Strength and Conditioning Coach from the CSCCA. He has also authored four publications related to strength and conditioning and has trained and consulted several NFL, CFL and NHL athletes, and prospective athletes preparing for all-star games, bowl games and pre-draft testing. Prior to UNH, Chapman was the director of strength and conditioning for the University of North Dakota from 1992-2001 and served there on an interim basis during the 1991-92 season. His efforts were an integral part of a winning tradition at UND, as the football team was the Division II national champions in 2001, the men’s ice hockey team won a Division I national title in 1997 and 2000 and the women’s basketball team was the Division II national champion in 1997, 1998 and 1999.

Upon graduation, he was a fourth-round draft choice of the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the Canadian Football League, where he played for two seasons. Ciani is very passionate about his commitment to strength and conditioning. He has taken his wide range of experiences to come up with a distinct sport-specific training philosophy. In conjunction with the coaching staff, Ciani develops individualized training programs depending on the athlete’s initial evaluation, experience level and current athletic ability. Under Ciani’s program, improvement is not based on the weight on the bar, but rather how injury resistant the student-athlete is and his/her athletic performance. Strength and conditioning programs designed by Ciani utilize all facets of training, from conventional strength training and Olympic Weightlifting to simple conditioning and sport-specific metabolic runs that enhance the athlete’s abilities during competition. No single training style dominates the program; Ciani uses a combination of all training techniques for the total development of the student-athlete. Ciani, a native of the San Diego, Calif. area, came to UNH after a stint as assistant strength coach at the University of North Dakota.

UNH FOOTBALL - NATION-LEADING 7 STRAIGHTNCAAAPPEARANCES

jerry azumah performance center

As a starting tailback at the University of New Hampshire, Jerry Azumah ‘99 earned a reputation as an unstoppable record-breaker. By the time he graduated from the University and joined the Chicago Bears as a fifth-round draft pick, he had already smashed four NCAA FCS career records and been awarded the Walter Payton Award for his outstanding achievement as the nation’s top offensive player. At the age of 25, he did it again. With a gift to fund the Jerry Azumah Athletic Performance Center, he was the youngest UNH alum on record to give a gift of more than $100,000 to his alma mater. The gift provided funding for the renovation and complete overhaul, including state-of-the-art equipment of the University’s strength and conditioning facility located in the UNH Field House. The Azumah Performance Center opened in the summer of 2003. The massive workout facility, which was originally 4,000 square feet, grew to over 6,000 square feet during a summer renovation in 2009. The renovated center features 5,000 pounds of Olympic weights, 7,000 pounds of dumbbells, 18 Powerlift platform stations, 12 Hammer strength machines, an additional 15,000 pounds of weights and 1,500 square feet of warmup area. “His National Football League profile will tell you that Jerry Azumah was 5-11, weighed 195, and played defensive cornerback with the Chicago Bears,” said Marty Scarano, University of New Hampshire athletic director. “What those statistics miss is the size of Jerry Azumah’s heart. We are so proud to have Jerry’s name affiliated with the University of New Hampshire. Jerry was a leader while attending UNH and continues to set a great example as a graduate.” Azumah is the son of Theophilius and Bertha Azumah, natives of Ghana, who now live in Worcester, Mass. He came to UNH in 1995 as a freshman, majored in sociology, and minored in justice studies. “My scholarship at UNH allowed me to pursue my interests in the classroom, build a successful college football career and changed my life on every level,” said Azumah. “I’m pleased to be able to make a major contribution to my university and to bring new opportunities to today’s student-athletes.” During his four years at UNH, Azumah was an All-American tailback and has been referred to as a player who comes along once in a coach’s lifetime by former UNH football coach Bill Bowes. He holds numerous school records, including the record for touchdowns rushing (60) and overall TDs (69), and FCS records for rushing yards (6,193), all-purpose yards (8,376) and points scored (424). He had the six best — and eight of the top 10— UNH rushing games ever and holds the all-time FCS rushing record of 6,193 yards. At that time, he was the only runner in FCS history to have four 1,000-yard seasons. Azumah is one of the only players in the history of the NFL to make the transition from offense to being a starting cornerback. In 2003 he became the only Wildcat to ever play in the Pro Bowl, where he excelled as a return specialist. He was a full-time starter at cornerback from 2001 through 2005 and made significant contributions on defense. Azumah holds the distinction of being the last Chicago Bear to score a touchdown at Soldier Field when he intercepted Donovan McNabb in a divisional playoff game versus the Philadelphia Eagles and ran 39 yards for a touchdown Jan. 19, 2002. The play gave the Bears a 14-13 lead in the third quarter. Azumah announced his retirement from NFL football in 2006 due to injuries, but he continues to keep in touch with his alma mater and is always looking for new ways he can help the University, the athletic department and the Wildcat football program.

Cowell Stadium/Mooradian Field

The home of Wildcat football for the past 75 years is historic Cowell Stadium, located at the west end of the UNH campus in Durham. Thanks to a generous donation by the late Ed Fish, the field had a facelift in the form of a brand new FieldTurf surface, which was installed prior to the start of the 2007 season. Known as Alumni Field until 1952, the stadium was made possible by contributions of the UNH Alumni and was the first project of the Alumni Fund in the history of the University. Dedicated as a part of the Lewis Fields on Oct. 10, 1936, the stadium replaced what is now Memorial Field, the current home for the women’s lacrosse and field hockey teams. The largest crowd for a football game in Cowell Stadium occured on Nov. 12, 1977, when 20,000 watched the Wildcats fall to UMass, 19-6, in a showdown for the Yankee Conference crown. The stadium is named for the former Wildcat athletics director and football coach, William H. “Butch” Cowell, who came to Durham from the Haskell Institute in 1915 and proceeded to change the face of athletics at the University. Over the first 22 years of intercollegiate football, New Hampshire managed just 23 victories. At the end of his 22-year coaching career (1915-36), Cowell had amassed an 84-67-22 mark, including stunning upsets over Army, Holy Cross and Brown. A founder of the American Football Coaches Association, Cowell served as the organization’s president in 1925 and, until his death, served as the AFCA’s permanent secretary-treasurer (1925-40). On Oct.18, 1952, at the Homecoming game versus Springfield College, the stadium was rededicated in Cowell’s honor during halftime ceremonies. UNH honored former athletics director Andy Mooradian by dedicating the playing field in his name during halftime ceremonies on Homecoming (1996). Mooradian was involved with Wildcat athletics for 45 years as a player, coach and administrator. He served as UNH’s athletics director from 1966-86, guiding the program from the NCAA II level to Division I during his tenure. A national leader on the intercollegiate athletic scene, Mooradian was president of NACDA, the ECAC and the Yankee Conference and was a member of several prominent NCAA committees.

The James H. “Red” Hayes Locker Room

Solely for the use of the football players and staff is the James H. “Red” Hayes Football Locker Room, located on the bottom level of the Field House adjacent to Cowell Stadium. Constructed in 1988, the locker room was a gift of Red Hayes (‘32), a former Wildcat player under legendary coach William Cowell, who went on to a successful business career and gave distinguished service to the State of New Hampshire. The locker room features 110 separate lockers that accommodate each player’s equipment and uniform, as well as a players’ lounge. Adjacent to the locker room area, the lounge serves as a study and meeting area. Players can unwind in front of a large screen TV, complete with plush furnishings and a “stadium” seating area.

Bremner Field Bremner Field, located adjacent to Cowell Stadium, was transformed into an AstroPlay facility (approximately 110,000 square feet) with full lighting in the summer of 2002. It is utilized as a practice field by various teams, including football, and is also one of two home sites for the UNH men’s and women’s soccer teams. A new, state-of-the-art surface was installed in the summer of 2011.

Paul Sweet Oval The Paul Sweet Oval is the University’s indoor track, located in the Field House. Renovations in the summer/fall of 2008 included new track and infield surfaces – the track surface is the same component installed for the 2008 Olympics – as well as lighting fixtures and windows to add natural lighting.

Reggie Atkins Track & Field The Reggie F. Atkins Track & Field Facility was renovated in May 2002 and has been the site of numerous conference and New England championships. The eight-lane outdoor track encircles Mooradian Field.

The grants were provided to establish colleges to serve the sons and daughters of farming and laboring families. First situated in Hanover, N.H., in connection with Dartmouth College, UNH College moved to Durham in 1893 after Benjamin Thompson, a prosperous farmer, bequeathed land and money to further the development of the college. In 1923, the state legislature granted it a new charter as the University of New Hampshire.
