University of New Hampshire Head Coach Sean McDonnell Sean McDonnell, a 1978 University of New Hampshire graduate, enters his 14th season as the head coach of his alma mater in 2012 with a career record of 96-62. Under his mentorship, the Wildcats have qualified for the NCAA Division I FCS postseason for eight straight seasons, the longest streak in the nation, and the ‘Cats have been ranked in the Top 25 for 112 consecutive polls, the second-longest streak in FCS football which dates back to Sept. 13, 2004. The 2011 Wildcats matched a school record for the second straight year by knocking off five ranked opponents en route to an 8-4 mark, including 6-2 in the CAA. The ‘Cats put a bow on their rivalry with Massachusetts by knocking off the Minutemen, 27-21, in the second Colonial Clash at Gillette Stadium, which was also the 74th and final scheduled meeting between the longtime rivals. UNH reclaimed the Brice-Cowell Musket with a 30-27 defeat of Maine in the regular-season finale and came within a blocked PAT of forcing overtime in a playoff loss at Montana State. Junior linebacker Matt Evans became the first Wildcat to ever be named the nation’s top defensive player when he won the Buck Buchanan Award, and senior quarterback Kevin Decker was crowned the CAA Offensive Player of the Year. In 2010, McDonnell’s Wildcats collected victories against five ranked opponents, a University record, en route to an 8-5 campaign. UNH advanced to the quarterfinal round of the NCAA postseason for the sixth time in 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. McDonnell was feted as the 2010 Division I FCS Coach of the Year by the New England Football Writers, his third such honor (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. UNH finished 10-3 in 2009 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 (28-24) on Homecoming. 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 in most national polls, and McDonnell was honored as the New England FCS Coach of the Year for the second time . 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 sixth after defeating Hampton in the first round (41-38) of the NCAAs. Among the regular-season highlights was senior All-America wide receiver David Ball making history by surpassing legendary Jerry Rice with 58 career TD receptions and junior quarterback Ricky Santos claiming the Walter Payton Award as the FCS football national player of the year. 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, a second straight NCAA appearance in the I-AA quarterfinals and the country’s No. 1 ranking at the end of the regular season. The Wildcats played host to 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. McDonnell’s hard work rebuilding the program paid off in 2004 with a 10-3 overall record and a 6-2 mark in the Atlantic 10, which earned the team the Northern Division championship and a bid to the NCAA I-AA Championships for the first time since 1994. The ‘Cats advanced to the quarterfinals for the first time in the history of the program by winning its first-ever NCAA contest under McDonnell, a 27-23 upset at Georgia Southern. 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 began turning the corner by winning three of its last four contests, including an upset victory over nationally-ranked Maine. The team’s 5-7 record could have easily been above .500, as the ‘Cats narrowly lost to No. 1 Delaware on a missed field goal in the closing seconds, and UNH was driving for a potential game-winning TD late at Division I-A Central Michigan before running out of time. 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 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. McDonnell was named the Gridiron Club Of Greater Boston College Head Coach Of The Year. In his rookie debut, McDonnell led the Wildcats to a 5-6 overall record and oversaw a wide-open offensive attack that led the Atlantic 10 with an average of 457.3 yards per game. McDonnell was named the 19th head coach of the UNH football program April 22, 1999. McDonnell replaced legendary head coach Bill Bowes, who retired after 27 years as the mentor of the Wildcats. McDonnell served eight seasons as a Wildcat assistant and completed his fifth year as the team’s offensive coordinator in 1998. McDonnell rejoined the Wildcats as an assistant coach before the 1991 spring camp and worked with the quarterbacks and receivers for his first two seasons. In 1997, McDonnell was named the recipient of “The College Assistant Coach Award” by the Gridiron Club of Greater Boston in recognition of his quality of performance, loyalty and longevity. A native of Saratoga Springs, N.Y., McDonnell was a standout defensive back for UNH. He started for the 1975 and 1976 Yankee Conference championship teams and came back to start for the 1978 squad. After his graduation from UNH, he spent one year as an assistant coach at Manchester (N.H.) Memorial High School and followed that up with a three-year stint at Manchester West (1980-82). McDonnell worked as the defensive coordinator at Hamilton College for two seasons (1983-84) and subsequently spent three years (1985-87) coaching the receivers and tight ends at former conference-rival Boston University. During the 1988 campaign, McDonnell served as a graduate assistant coach at Boston College. He spent two seasons as an assistant at Columbia (1989-90) prior to his coaching debut in Durham. Sean and his wife, Jenny, reside in Durham and are the parents of two sons: Timmy and Tommy.

THE 2012 UNH FOOTBALL OUTLOOK The University of New Hampshire football program enters spring camp as owners of the nation’s longest active streak of NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision playoff appearances with eight. The Wildcats finished the 2011 campaign with an overall record of 8-4, a 6-2 mark in the CAA and the No. 11 ranking in The Sports Network/ Fathead.com Top 25. The ‘Cats had their season end in heartbreaking fashion, 26-25, in the second round of the NCAAs at Montana State University when a blocked PAT with six seconds remaining dashed the hopes of overtime mere moments after senior quarterback Kevin Decker’s improbable 29-yard TD pass to sophomore wide receiver Justin Mello in the back-right corner of the end zone. QUARTERBACKS UNH turns the page to 2012 after bidding farewell to Decker, the co-captain, CAA Offensive Player of the Year and team most valuable player who threw for 3,272 yards, the third-most in school single-season history, during his one memorable year as the starter. Now the competition is wide open to determine his replacement. Senior James Brady (6-0, 210) and sophomore Andy Vailas (6-2, 187) are neck and neck in the race to take over duties, with redshirt freshman Sean Goldrich (6-3, 205) also getting an opportunity to challenge for the job. Brady, who gained valuable playing time during two seasons at Georgetown prior to transferring to New Hampshire, has the edge in terms of experience. He threw for 690 yards and three TDs during his freshman season with the Hoyas in 2008 before seeing action in three more games as a sophomore in ’09. Last season, Brady played a very limited role as Decker’s backup, completing one of two passes for six yards in the season-opener at Toledo. In the 2011 spring Blue-White Game, the Deer Park, N.Y., native went 6-for7 for 34 yards and a TD. Vailas, a Bedford, N.H., native, completed three of four passes for 18 yards in two games. In last spring’s Blue-White Game, he went 6-for-9 for 37 yards to go along with a four-yard scoring rush. Goldrich has a season of learning the offense under his belt; the signal caller has a winning track record, evidenced by his 25-4 mark as starting QB at Notre Dame High School in West Haven, Conn. RUNNING BACKS The running back position boasts of nearly as much experience as the QB post lacks, with all four of last season’s top RBs returning to the backfield this spring. Rising senior Dontra Peters (5-11, 197) is the incumbent at tailback. For the second straight year Peters led the team in carries

(117), yards (595) and rushing yards/game (54.1) while finding the end zone seven times. The Annapolis, Md., native was also the squad’s top receiving threat out of the backfield with 27 receptions for 174 yards. Though he will miss spring camp due to injury, sophomore Nico Steriti (5-11, 214) proved capable when called upon last season, highlighted by a career day in a win against Maine when he rumbled for 150 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries. The Toms River, N.J., native saw action in all 12 games, chalking up 370 yards on 65 carries to pace the team with 5.7 yards/rush, including a team season-high 87-yard TD rush at Toledo. H-back Chris Setian (5-10, 235) specialized as the Wildcats’ between-the-tackles battering ram, pounding his way to 338 yards on 80 carries with three TDs. The rising junior tacked on 15 receptions for 125 yards and a TD and even registered 11 tackles, nine solo, with a forced fumble and a fumble recovery on special teams. Sophomore Jimmy Owens (5-8, 211) looks to gain a stronger foothold among this deep corps of RBs in ’12. After opening eyes in last spring’s Blue-White Game with a 65-yard TD scamper and a game-high 70 yards, Owens played sparingly in the regular season with five carries for 13 yards. Granite-Staters Jim Earley (5-10, 179), a Bishop Brady product, and Mike Kelly (5-9, 190), a Bishop Guertin grad, round out the Wildcat ball carriers this spring. WIDE RECEIVERS A talented and deep receiving corps, buoyed by a pair of All-CAA members, should ease the transition of UNH’s new starting quarterback. Sophomore R.J. Harris (Second Team) and senior Joey Orlando (Third Team) were a dynamic duo last season. Harris (6-0, 190) burst upon the scene en route to a place on the College Sports Journal AllFreshman Team. He nabbed 50 receptions and led the ‘Cats with 714 receiving yards, 14.3 yards/catch, 64.9 receiving yards/game, and seven TDs, which tied for the CAA lead. He recorded four 100-yard receiving games, highlighted by a career-best 190 yards and 66-yard TD reception against Villanova, and was a two-time CAA Rookie of the Week. Orlando (5-11, 194) paced New Hampshire with 54 receptions as the only WR to start all 12 games. The two-year starter was on the receiving end of three TDs, racked up 679 receiving yards and had a career day in his hometown with 10 catches, 166 yards, two TD grabs and a 56-yard punt return for a TD in an overtime triumph against Lehigh. Mello (6-0, 217), in addition to his clutch grab at Montana State, totaled 23 receptions for 416 yards and five TDs, second-most on the team. The reliable target notched five

THE 2012 UNH FOOTBALL OUTLOOK multi-catch games, including a career-high 60-yard scoring grab against Holy Cross. Sophomore Jimmy Giansante (6-2, 198), who started two games, is primed to take on a larger role in the receiving game after collecting three TD catches among his 11 receptions, and junior Tim Farina (5-9, 168) also hopes to join the fray as a veteran presence. Joining this collection are a pair of talented redshirt freshmen - Jared Allison (5-8, 164) and Steve Sweeney (5-10, 174) – looking to make an immediate impact. TIGHT ENDS With the departure of senior Sean Cullen, the battle for the starting spot rests between sophomores Brian Ciccone (6-3, 248) and Harold Spears (6-4, 245). Spears (one catch-18 yards) missed most of the ’11 season after suffering a leg injury in September that opened the door for Ciccone (one catch-two yards) to transition back from tight end after playing as a defensive end for the first two games. Mike Mitchell (6-3, 251), a sophomore, and Matt Murray (6-2, 257), a junior, enter camp with visions of climbing the depth chart with another year of seasoning under their belts, while redshirt freshman Ekene Nowkoye (6-5, 216) also will get an opportunity to compete for playing time. OFFENSIVE LINE All five starters, plus two key reserves, remain intact, making this unit potentially the strongest on the team. Junior Seamus O’Neill (6-3, 270) earned a berth on the All-CAA Third Team after starting all 12 games at left tackle. He’ll once again pair up with left guard Chris Zarkoskie (61, 286), who is preparing for his third year as a starter. Sophomore Mike Coccia (6-3, 290) won the competition at center last season and proceeded to start all 12 games in the middle of the trenches. Junior Ricky Archer (6-2, 278) parlayed his first season as a the starting right guard into a spot on both the FCS All-New England Team and the All-CAA Second Team, and senior Mickey DiLima (6-4, 313) will be looking to earn the nod at right tackle for a third consecutive season. Beyond the starters rests an impressive collection of backups looking to take on more definitive roles this season. Senior Walter McCarthy (6-5, 272) and sophomore Rob Bowman (6-5, 307) both played significant snaps at right tackle last season and will be part of the mix again in ’12. Returnees Alex Blane (6-4, 291), Sean Ryan (6-2, 286) and Nick Schmalhofer (6-3, 270) will vie for higher positions on the depth chart with a slew of aspiring newcomers: Cameron Finn (6-2, 280), Austin Heter (6-4, 261), Zach Hundertmark (6-4, 276) and George Kallas (6-2, 310).

DEFENSIVE LINE A front four that was experienced on the edges and young in the middle takes on the opposite look this spring. Gone are co-captain Brian McNally, an All-CAA First Team, All-New England and ECAC First Team All-Star defensive end, and fellow graduate James Jenkins, the Jack French Unsung Hero, who started opposite the school’s all-time sack king for two years in a row. The bookends combined for 71 tackles and 11 sacks last season. Looking to fill that void at DE will be sophomore Robbie Zauck (6-2, 250), junior Jay Colbert (6-1, 262) junior Cody Muller (6-2, 250) and senior Randi Vines (6-3, 261). That quartet will be joined by newcomers Danny Riley (6-4, 256) and Dab Ukwuani (6-3, 240). The defensive tackle position features a group of experienced players who should be very effective in plugging the middle of the line. Jared Smith (6-3, 300) is expected to remain a stalwart at DT, a position he has helped fortify the past two seasons. The senior ranked second among all UNH linemen with 43 tackles, including 2.5 sacks, a season ago. Fellow tackle Sean McCann (6-2, 275) is back in the fold after starting 10 games, with 27 tackles and a sack, during his sophomore campaign. Junior Jimmy Vailas (6-3, 256) will also be counted upon to once again provide depth at that spot, along with rising sophomore Matt Kaplan (6-1, 291), who collected 15 tackles, nine solo, with 1.5 sacks as part of the rotation last season. Classmate Tim Johnson (6-2, 284) also saw plenty of action last season and should be an integral part of the d-line once again. Look for redshirt freshmen Rashid Armand (6-0, 307), Jullian Turner (6-0, 306) and Ryan Welch (6-3, 273) to also battle for playing time, though Armand will miss spring camp due to injury. LINEBACKERS To suggest expectations are high for this group would be a massive understatement. Both incumbent MLBs are seniors entering their third year as starters, and one of them –Matt Evans (6-0, 226)- is seeking an encore on the heels of winning the Buck Buchanan Award as the nation’s top defensive player last season. Evans, who became the first player in school history to earn that prestigious honor, was tabbed a consensus All-America by such outlets as the Walter Camp Football Foundation, Phil Steele, The Sports Network/Fathead.com, College Sports Madness, Beyond Sports College Network in addition to winning the Gold Helmet Award as New England’s FCS player of the year. The Hanover, Mass., native paced the squad with 165 tackles (No. 2 nationally), 92 solo, three interceptions –including two pick-sixes- two sacks, three forced

THE 2012 UNH FOOTBALL OUTLOOK fumbles and a fumble recovery. With 334 career tackles, he is ranked fifth all-time at UNH and is just 100 tackles shy of the school’s No. 1 spot. Though overshadowed by his acclaimed classmate, Alan Buzbee (6-3, 238) has proven to be a consistent force in his own right. The Chester, N.J., native started all 12 games last season and ranked third on the team with 88 tackles, 44 unassisted stops, six tackles for loss, one sack, one INT, one fumble recovery and a team-leading five pass breakups. His leadership both on and off the field should make him an integral part of the Wildcats’ 2012 success. Shane McNeely (6-2, 243) was one of only two true freshmen to see action in 2011, which demonstrated his quick assimilation to the defense. The Whitehall, Pa., native registered at least one tackle in each of the nine games in which he appeared and notched a fumble recovery. Redshirt freshman Akil Anderson (6-1, 197) will get his opportunity to showcase the skills he displayed in last fall’s Blue-White Game when he led all players with 10 tackles. Junior Steve Collister (5-10, 249) and senior Michael Bradley (6-2, 229) provide depth and experience to the linebacking corps, and sophomore Damien Francis (6-0, 211) will seek to open some eyes with an impressive camp. SAFETIES New Hampshire’s 4-2-5 defense emphasizes the importance of the safety position, employing a ‘free’, ‘strike’ and ‘whip’ safety. Chris Beranger (5-11, 195) capitalized on his first season as the starting free safety by starting all 12 games and becoming one of the CAA’s most potent defensive backs. The Winthrop, Mass., native compiled 142 tackles, the fourth-most in school history. He ranked third in the CAA and ninth in the nation with 11.8 tackles/game and led the ‘Cats in tackles seven times. Beranger posted double-digit stops in eight games, tallied an interception, a sack, two forced fumbles and tied for team-high distinction with five pass breakups. A year ago, Manny Asam (6-0, 184) was making the transition from wide receiver to defensive back. Now the rising junior is entrenched as the starting strike safety coming off a season that saw him record 75 tackles, including 48 solo stops, while starting all 12 contests. The Bloomfield, N.J., native snared three interceptions, added four pass breakups, a sack and a fumble recovery. The whip safety job is up for grabs following the graduation of Rod Walker. Tre Williams (6-3, 194) is the most experienced of the candidates to step into that role. The Syracuse, N.Y., native battled through injuries to rack up 20 tackles, 17 solo, in eight games. Nick Cefalo (6-2, 190) is back in the mix after earning playing time in five

games as a true freshman in ’11. Competition should be fierce among redshirt freshmen Khyheem Finley (5-10, 193) and Keith Parkinson (6-1, 191) and sophomore Tim Pike (5-10, 199) to gain a stronger foothold on the depth chart. CORNERBACKS Junior Chris Houston (5-9, 170) took a major stride forward in 2011 by leading the Wildcats with six interceptions as the starting ‘field’ cornerback for all 12 contests. The Harrisburg, Pa., native snatched five picks in the final four games of the season and concluded the year with 57 tackles, including 43 unassisted stops, which ranked tops among CBs. Sophomore Steven Thames (6-0, 181) served as the primary backup at corner last season and, with the departure of Kyle Flemings, will be looking to fill that vacancy opposite Houston in ’12. The Fort Washington, Md., native totaled seven tackles in eight games, seeing most of his action on special teams. Kalil Bailey (5-10, 172), Lamar Edmonds (5-10, 165) and D.J. Moss (5-10, 166) lead a cast of redshirt freshmen who will be in the mix for a starting role. KICKING/PUNTING Junior Mike MacArthur (5-10, 184) is geared up for his third year as starting place-kicker and will enter the fall looking to get the nod at punter for the second consecutive season. The North Hampton, N.H., native will miss spring camp, however, due to offseason hip surgery, opening the door for younger players to gain valuable experience. Among those who will get a closer look this spring are junior Nick Pellino (6-1, 208), sophomores Brad Prasky (5-11, 185) and Anthony Guidice (5-8, 164) and redshirt freshman Christian Breda (6-2, 181). KICK/PUNT RETURNS Dontra Peters ranked third in the CAA with 24.6 yard per kickoff return last season. He returns along with both Nico Steriti (13 returns-278 yards) and R.J. Harris (13 returns-212 yards), who bring experience to that facet of the game. Joey Orlando is in line for a second straight year as the primary punt-return specialist a season after averaging 10.6 yards/return, highlighted by 56-yard TD at Lehigh.

TOLEDO, Ohio – Kevin Decker completed 21 of 28 passes for 162 yards, throwing for a touchdown and rushing for another, but it wasn’t enough to prevent 10th-ranked UNH from suffering a 58-22 loss in its season opener at Toledo on Thursday night at the Glass Bowl. Nico Steriti, in his collegiate debut, raced for an 87-yard touchdown run, the longest by a Wildcat since Chad Kackert’s 87-yard TD scamper at UMass in the D-I FCS national quarterfinals Dec. 2, 2006. The Rockets (1-0, 0-0 MAC) of the FBS dominated the contest, outscoring the Wildcats (0-1, 0-0 CAA) 30-8 in the first half and scoring 35 points off five New Hampshire turnovers. The 58 points were the most allowed by UNH in the Sean McDonnell era and the most yielded by a New Hampshire defense since Nov. 19, 1988, when the ‘Cats surrendered 64 points in a loss to UMass. Matt Evans led the defense with 14 tackles, including eight solo efforts, while Chris Beranger chipped in with a career-high 12 tackles. UNH scored its first points late in the first half when Decker hit Chris Setian for a three-yard touchdown to conclude a nine-play, 61-yard drive with 28 seconds remaining in the first half. It was Setian’s first career reception. Decker called his own number to convert the two-point conversion, cutting the deficit to 27-8. Decker scored the second Wildcat touchdown with 4:08 left in the third quarter, breaking the plane for a one-yard score on 4th-and-goal. The extra point from Mike MacArthur trimmed Toledo’s lead to 44-15. Toledo totaled 582 yards of offense and posted three scoring plays of 45 yards or more in the contest, the first meeting between the two schools in 62 years. Leading 3-0 late in the first, the Rockets’ defense forced its first turnover when Decker’s pass intended for TE Sean Cullen was knocked away by CB Taikwon Paige into the hands of S Diauntae Morrow for an interception, giving the Rockets possession at UNH’s 30. Three plays later, Eric Page was on the receiving end of a 24-yard TD pass from Austin Dantin. Ryan Casano’s PAT lifted Toledo’s advantage to 10-0 with 2:24 left in the opening stanza. On the ensuing kickoff, the Wildcats had six points taken off the board when an apparent 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Dontra Peters was negated by a personal foul penalty. The Rockets capitalized when DT Johnathan Lamb forced a fumble that was recovered by S Charles Rancifer at UNH’s 45. Backup QB Terrance Owens entered the game and threw his first pass, a TD to Bernard Reedy with 1:05 left in the first to make it 17-0. The lead ballooned to 24-0 with 9:35 left in the half courtesy of a 46-yard TD run by tailback Adonis Thomas. The drive was preceded by UNH’s third turnover of the half, a forced fumble by Robert Bell that was picked up by DE Malcolm Riley at Toledo’s 18. Casano tacked on two more field goals in the half, a 33-yarder with 3:23 left for a 27-0 lead and a 38-yarder on the final play of the half for a 30-8 lead. Toledo seized a 3-0 lead with 4:46 remaining in the first quarter when Casano booted a 23-yard field goal. The Rockets scored on their opening possession of the second half when Danton found Morgan Williams on a 15-yard TD pass for a 37-8 lead with 12:01 left in the third. Toledo forced its fourth turnover of the game when LB Dan Molls sacked Decker, forcing a fumble that was recovered by Bell at Toledo’s 37. One play later, Dantin spotted Reedy for a 63-yard TD, lifting the lead to 44-8 with 8:58 remaining in the third period. Owens threw his second touchdown strike of the night to Danny Noble on an eight-yard rollout with 14:55 remaining in the game, allowing the Rockets to build a 51-15 lead.

BETHLEHEM, Pa.– Playing in front of his hometown fans, Joey Orlando scored a career-high three touchdowns, including the 25-yard game-winning reception in overtime, to lift the No. 13/16 UNH football team to a 48-41 triumph over No. 14/14 Lehigh on Sept. 10 at Goodman Stadium. Orlando notched a career-best 166 receiving yards on 10 catches, matching a personal best. The junior wide receiver also recorded a 17-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter that put him over 1,000 career receiving yards and returned a punt for a touchdown in the third quarter. UNH (1-1, 0-0 CAA) evened its record by winning its first overtime game since Nov. 18, 2006, at Maine. Lehigh (1-1, 0-0 Patriot League) suffered its first defeat despite rallying from an 18-point, second-half deficit to grab a 41-38 lead with 4:35 remaining in regulation. The Wildcats forced overtime when Mike MacArthur booted a 35-yard field goal with 3:23 left in regulation. Kevin Decker registered the first 300-yard passing game of his career, completing 23 passes (career-high matching) in 34 attempts for 330 yards and three touchdowns while also rushing for a pair of two-yard touchdowns. Decker’s final throw of the day came on the first play of OT, when he found Orlando in the front left corner of the end zone. Orlando, who was bumped out of bounds on the play, was able to come back into the field of play to make the tumbling reception. Matt Evans tallied a career-high 24 tackles for a defense that recorded three interceptions, including the game-ending interception by Kyle Flemings at the UNH 2-yard line on the final play of OT. Lehigh quarterback Chris Lum went 36 of 54 for 401 yards and six touchdowns in the losing effort. Jake Drwal led the Mountain Hawks with 11 catches for 142 yards and two touchdowns; Zach Barket added 10 receptions for 84 yards and two touchdown catches. Orlando’s career-high 56-yard punt return for a TD with 12:29 left in the third quarter increased New Hampshire’s lead to 31-20 following MacArthur’s PAT. It was UNH’s first punt return for a score since now-Chicago Bear Corey Graham’s 51-yarder versus Stony Brook on Sept. 16, 2006. The Wildcats then parlayed their first forced turnover of the season into points when safety Manny Asam picked off Lum at the Mountain Hawks’ 29, returning it three yards to the 26. Two plays later, following a 14-yard run by Dontra Peters (11 carries-44 yards), Decker hit R.J. Harris (eight catches-107 yards-TD) for a 12-yard touchdown, the first of Harris’ career, with 11:51 left in the third quarter for a 38-20 lead. The Wildcat defense snuffed out Lehigh’s next drive when Chris Beranger intercepted Lum’s 3rd-and-10 pass from the UNH 14 in the end zone with 6:43 remaining in the third quarter. MacArthur’s PAT snapped the tie with 14:05 left in the second quarter. Once again, though, the Mountain Hawks moved back in front by putting together a seven-play, 78-yard drive. Lum threw his third touchdown pass of the day, a 12-yard strike to Spadola, giving Lehigh a 20-14 lead with 10:18 left in the first half. The fourth lead change of the first half came with 7:16 left before the intermission. The Wildcats went 70 yards on eight plays, culminating with Decker, rolling to his left, finding Orlando in the end zone for a 17-yard scoring pass that permitted UNH to recapture the lead, 21-20. Orlando, who had earlier kept the drive alive by leaping for a six-yard, 4th-and-2 reception at the Lehigh 23, went over the 1,000-yard receiving mark for his career with the touchdown grab. UNH increased its lead to 24-20 on MacArthur’s first field goal of the season, a 25-yarder with 44 seconds remaining in the half. Decker was 4-of-5 for 73 yards on the drive, with Justin Mello making a career-high 31-yard reception and Harris hauling in a pair of passes for 31 yards on the 10-play, 80-yard excursion.

Harris hauled in 12 catches for 120 yards and two touchdowns, including a 47-yard reception late in the fourth quarter, to help 11th-ranked UNH hold off No. 5/7 Richmond, 45-43, on Saturday at Robins Stadium in the CAA opener for both schools. UNH improved its record to 2-1, 1-0 in the CAA, by earning its first victory in Richmond since 1994. The Spiders fell to 3-1, 0-1 in the league. Kevin Decker threw for two TDs and ran for two more, completing 22 of 32 passes for 239 yards and rushing for 48 yards on nine carries. Dontra Peters accumulated 261 all-purpose yards (64 rushing, 56 receiving, 141 kick return). Matt Evans and Randi Vines each returned an interception for a touchdown, and Chris Beranger amassed a career-high 17 tackles. Decker hit Harris on a post pattern for a 47-yard TD –the longest pass play of the season- to stake the Wildcats to a 45-36 lead with 2:45 left. Richmond RB Kendall Gaskins (16 rushes-81 yards-3 TD) scored on a oneyard rush for his third touchdown of the game with 28 seconds remaining, cutting the deficit to 45-43, but Chris Chandler successfully recovered the ensuing onside kick to preserve the victory. Tre Gray collected 16 receptions for 194 yards, and Aaron Corp completed 35 of 50 passes for 351 yards and two touchdowns in the losing effort. The Wildcats, who fell behind 10-0 after one quarter, rallied back to seize their first lead with 11:03 left in the half when Vines intercepted a deflected pass and jaunted 60 yards untouched for a TD, staking the ‘Cats to a 14-10 advantage. Despite being held on the play, Brian McNally pressured Corp, whose pass was batted out of the air by Alan Buzbee (nine tackles) to Vines. It marked Vines’ second career pick-six; he previously returned an INT 30 yards for a score against Central Connecticut State on Sept. 4, 2010. UNH forced another turnover on the following kickoff when Chris Setian jarred the ball loose from return man Tremayne Graham and Chris Houston recovered the fumble on the Spiders’ 31. Three players later, Decker called his own number on a play-action fake and zipped inside left tackle for an 18-yard TD run, pushing New Hampshire’s lead to 21-10 with 10:23 left in the half. Richmond drew closer when Will Kamin drilled a 45-yard field goal with 7:31 remaining before halftime, slicing UNH’s lead to 21-13. The Wildcats registered their second pick-six of the afternoon when a rushing McNally forced an errant throw that was nabbed by Evans and returned 31 yards with 5:54 left in the second, allowing UNH to reclaim a 15-point lead, 28-13. It was the second career INT return for a score by Evans, who tallied a 25-yarder versus Towson on Nov. 20, 2010. Richmond’s final scoring drive of the first half was ignited by a 76-yard kickoff return from Wayne Pettus to the UNH 13. Facing a 4th-and-3 from the 6 on the subsequent drive, the Spiders lined up for a field goal, only to direct snap to Gaskins, who sprinted around the right end for a TD. The PAT made the score 28-20. Peters took the opening kickoff of the second half 70 yards, a career high, to the Richmond 26. The Wildcats capitalized on the short field when Decker rushed for his second score of the contest, taking a keeper in from 12 yards out to build UNH’s advantage to 35-20 with 13:33 left in the third. New Hampshire reclaimed a 15-point cushion, 38-23, after engineering a 14-play, 70-yard drive that chewed 6:45 off the clock before MacArthur hit a 23-yard field goal on the first play of the fourth quarter. Richmond’s response was an 11-play, 75-yard drive punctuated by Gaskins’ second rushing TD of the game, a 13-yard carry with 10:45 left in the game that narrowed the gap to 38-29. Trailing 10-0, UNH got on the board with 14:12 left in the second quarter when Decker lofted a 19-yard touchdown pass to Harris in the left corner of the end zone to conclude a nine-play, 90-yard drive. Decker accounted for all 90 yards, completing 6 of 7 passes for 79 yards and rushing once for 11 yards. MacArthur’s PAT trimmed Richmond’s advantage to 10-7.

The Wildcats (3-1, 1-0 CAA) notched their third straight victory and made it seven consecutive wins in home openers at Mooradian Field. The Crusaders (2-2, 1-0 Patriot League) saw their two-game winning streak snapped in the first meeting between the two New England Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) schools since 1984. Decker went 23 of 31, matching his personal best for completions, and threw his four scoring passes to four different receivers. Mello eclipsed the 100-yard receiving mark for the first time in his career, tallying two receptions for a team-leading 107 yards. Mickey Mangieri, seeing his first game action since Dec. 5, 2009, posted career bests with six receptions for 102 yards and a touchdown. Dontra Peters recorded his first 100-yard rushing game of the year, gaining 104 yards on 18 carries. Chris Beranger made a team-high 12 stops for his third double-digit tackle performance in four games while Matt Evans made it four straight games in double-figure tackles with 11 stops. Ryan Taggart played valiantly in the losing effort for Holy Cross, completing 40 of 57 passes for 412 yards and two touchdowns, but he was intercepted by Manny Asam in the first quarter, snapping his school record of 209 consecutive passes without an INT. Taggart also led his team’s ground attack, rushing 12 times for 55 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Kyle Toulouse amassed 13 receptions for 110 yards and Gerald Mistretta added six catches for 136 yards to lead the Crusaders’ receiving corps. UNH snapped a 32-32 tie when Decker, on 3rd-and-8 from the UNH 40, found a streaking Mello down the right sideline for the longest pass play of the season and the sophomore receiver’s first career TD reception. Holy Cross moved the ball to the UNH 33 on its final possession, but the last-ditch effort fell short when Taggart’s pass intended for Jon Smith in the UNH end zone was batted away as time expired. The Wildcats jumped out to a 7-0 lead with 8:29 left in the first quarter when Decker hit Jimmy Giansante (one catch-27 yards, TD) for a 27-yard score. Holy Cross tallied its first points with 3:23 remaining in the first courtesy of a 33-yard field goal from John Macomber to trim New Hampshire’s lead to 7-3. The Crusaders moved in front, 10-7, for its only lead on a three-yard touchdown pass from Taggart to Mike Fess (11 catches, 95 yards, TD) with 9:06 left in the half. The ‘Cats seized the lead right back on a 31-yard Decker-to-Mangieri TD followed by Decker’s full-extension leap over the goal line on the successful two-point conversion for a 15-10 lead with 6:46 to go in the half. UNH took an 18-10 lead to the locker room when Mike MacArthur kicked a 25-yard field goal on the final play of the half. The Wildcats’ biggest lead of the afternoon came after a nine-play, 79-yard drive capped by Decker’s third scoring strike of the day, a five-yard pass to Joey Orlando with 10:22 to play in the third quarter for a 25-13 lead. Orlando, who totaled 54 receiving yards in the contest, paced UNH with seven catches. Holy Cross responded with an 87-yard scoring drive that culminated in Taggart’s 10-yard TD run with 7:53 left in the third. The Crusaders cut the deficit to 25-19, but Macomber’s PAT failed. The Crusaders saw an opportunity to take the lead go by the boards after a second missed point-after with 11:36 left in the game. Moments earlier, Mistretta caught a 4th-and-3 pass from Taggart and raced 35 yards to the end zone, tying the score at 25-25. New Hampshire reclaimed the lead, 32-25, when Chris Setian (eight rushes-64 yards, TD) bruised his way in for a one-yard TD rush with 9:53 left in the fourth. The score was set up by Decker’s 47yard completion to Mello down to the Holy Cross 1. Taggart once again brought the Crusaders even at 32 apiece by scampering in for a 13-yard touchdown, his second of the game, with 2:30 left in the contest.

DURHAM, N.H.- Kevin Decker passed for a career-high 395 yards, threw three touchdown passes and rushed for another to lead the sixth-ranked University of New Hampshire football team to a 47-17 victory over Villanova before a crowd of 5,760 on Saturday afternoon at Cowell Stadium. UNH earned its fourth consecutive win to up its record to 4-1, 1-0 in the Colonial Athletic Association. Villanova dropped to 1-5 overall, 0-3 in the CAA. Decker went 23 of 32, matching a career high for completions by spreading the ball to nine different receivers. The senior signal caller recorded TD passes to R.J. Harris, Justin Mello and Jimmy Giansante, helping UNH amass a season-best 401 passing yards and 557 total yards. Harris notched his third 100-yard receiving day of the season, accumulating a career-high 190 yards, just 23 shy of the CAA freshman record, on a team-leading seven receptions. His team-best fourth scoring catch came on the longest pass play of the season, a 66-yard heave from Decker on a post pattern with 3:27 left in the first quarter to help the home Wildcats build a 15-0 lead. Mello made his one catch of the day count, corralling a 35-yard touchdown reception with 6:11 left in the second quarter to push UNH’s lead to 24-3. Giansante (three catches-58 yards, TD) snared a 16-yard scoring strike early in the fourth quarter, increasing the Wildcats’ lead to 44-10 with 13:42 remaining in the contest. Decker (six rushes-46 yards, TD) got the scoring started by rushing for a three-yard touchdown, his sixth, just 2:45 into the opening stanza, putting the finishing touches on an eight-play, 80-yard drive. He then kept it himself for the successful two-point conversion and an 8-0 UNH lead. Brian McNally spearheaded New Hampshire’s best defensive showing of the season, racking up a career-high 3.5 sacks as the ‘Cats held ‘Nova to 277 yards of offense and forced three turnovers. Chris Houston made six tackles, forced a fumble and notched his first career interception. Rod Walker also picked off the first pass of his career, returning the INT 42 yards to the Villanova 6. That set the stage for Dontra Peters (nine rushes-30 yards, TD), who scampered in for a six-yard score with 12:31 left in the third period, staking UNH to a commanding 34-10 following the PAT. New Hampshire forced its other turnover on the first play of the fourth quarter when Jared Smith forced a fumble that was recovered by James Jenkins (three tackles). Mike MacArthur improved to 7-for-7 in field-goal attempts this season by connecting on all three of his attempts: a 24-yarder in the second quarter, giving UNH an 18-0 lead; a 27-yard kick on the last play of the first half for a 27-10 lead and a 23-yarder with 5:14 left in the third quarter for a 37-10 advantage. But the sophomore kicker did miss the first extra point of his career following Giansante’s second-period TD catch, snapping a streak of 43 in a row successfully converted. Villanova quarterback Chris Polony, who replaced ineffective starter Chris Cullicerto (2-for-7, seven yards), went 15 of 19 for 120 yards with two interceptions and a nine-yard TD pass to Dorian Wells (five catches-36 yards, TD). Kevin Monangai rushed 18 times for 57 yards and a touchdown.

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - Kevin Decker set career highs in passes, attempts and yards, but the sixth-ranked University of New Hampshire football team saw its four-game winning streak snapped with a 24-10 setback against No. 16/15 William & Mary at Zable Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Tribe improved to 4-3 overall, 2-2 in the Colonial Athletic Association, by posting its ninth straight win over the Wildcats, who fell to 4-2, 2-1 in the CAA. Decker went 34 of 50 for 422 yards and a touchdown but was sacked six times, including five by Marcus Hyde, and intercepted twice by an opportunistic Tribe defense that forced four turnovers. New Hampshire outgained William & Mary, 517 yards to 429 yards. Joey Orlando reeled in eight catches for 132 yards, and Mickey Mangieri also tallied eight receptions, a career high, for 100 yards. Chris Beranger posted a gamehigh 16 tackles, seven unassisted, and Matt Evans chipped in with 13 stops. Jonathan Grimes compiled 323 all-purpose yards in the winning cause for the Tribe and, in the process, set the William & Mary all-time rushing record. Grimes carried 28 times for 169 yards and accumulated a career-high 126 receiving yards on three receptions –two of them for touchdowns. Following a scoreless opening stanza, UNH grabbed a 3-0 lead on a 37-yard field goal from Mike MacArthur with 2:30 left in the first half. That capped an 11-play, 60-yard drive. The lead was short-lived, as on the second play of the next drive, quarterback Brent Caprio (7-for-11, 167 yards, 2 TD, INT) dumped off to Grimes, who shed a few tackles and then raced for a 72-yard touchdown, putting the Tribe in front, 7-3, with 1:35 left before the intermission. Moving into their hurry-up offense, the Wildcats responded immediately by marching 90 yards on eight plays in just 1:27, reclaiming the lead, 10-7, with eight seconds left in the half when R.J. Harris (2 catches-23 yards, TD) out-leaped a defender in the left corner of the end zone for a 15-yard scoring reception from Decker. Grimes struck again on the Tribe’s opening possession of the second half, collecting a pass from Caprio and dashing 50 yards for the go-ahead score with 8:57 left in the third quarter, staking the home team to a 14-10 advantage. William & Mary’s third home-run scoring play came on running back Keith McBride’s career-high 50-yard scoring rush with 12:42 left in the game, building the lead to 21-10. McBride finished the afternoon with nine rushes for 68 yards. Drake Kuhn’s 45-yard field goal with 6:06 remaining represented the game’s final points. The teams exchanged turnovers on their respective first possessions. The Tribe’s opening drive was halted when Alan Buzbee (three tackles) intercepted Caprio’s pass at the UNH 11, returning it 15 yards to the 25. William & Mary returned the favor, forcing a turnover at its own 27 when Jabrel Mines ripped the ball away from Dontra Peters (seven carries-three yards/two catches-13 yards) following a pass reception. The Wildcats had another opportunity to strike first go by the boards when MacArthur’s 27-yard field goal try went wide left with 1:24 remaining in the first quarter. It was his first missed field goal (eighth attempt) this season. New Hampshire threatened on its next possession, advancing to the Tribe 22 before Decker was sacked on 4th-and-3. However, William & Mary’s subsequent drive was squashed courtesy of a fumble by Caprio that was recovered by true freshman Shane McNeely (two tackles) at the Wildcats’ 37 midway through the second quarter.

FOXBORO, Mass. – Dontra Peters rushed for a pair of touchdowns and amassed 208 all-purpose yards to lead the 13th-ranked University of New Hampshire football team to a 27-21 victory over No. 22 Massachusetts in the second edition of the Colonial Clash, the 74th and final scheduled meeting between the longtime rivals, before a crowd of 24,022 at Gillette Stadium on Saturday afternoon. UNH improved to 5-2 with the victory and 3-1 in the CAA. UMass tumbled to 4-3 overall. Peters carried the ball 13 times for 92 yards, compiling 98 yards on three kick returns while collecting a team-leading three receptions for 18 yards to win the Bill Knight Trophy as the game’s most outstanding player. Kevin Decker completed 11 of 15 passes for 137 yards and a touchdown. Matt Evans spearheaded the defensive attack with 13 tackles, all solo, two forced fumbles and a pass breakup. Chris Beranger posted a game-high 14 tackles, and Alan Buzbee chipped in with 13 stops for a New Hampshire defense that forced two fumbles and notched an interception. Peters returned the game’s opening kickoff 44 yards to the UMass 42-yard line. The junior running back then capped an eight-play drive by taking a sweep around the left side for a five-yard touchdown. The Wildcats’ captains combined on the successful two-point conversion when Decker avoided the pass rush just long enough to find Brian McNally (two tackles, fumble recovery), lined up as a tight end, in the end zone for an 8-0 lead with 12:01 left in the first quarter. The Minutemen threatened on their initial drive, marching from their 49 to the Wildcats’ 10, but Kellen Pagel’s 3rd-and 8 pass in the end zone was intercepted by Manny Asam (seven tackles), for his team-leading third pick of the year. UNH seized an 11-0 advantage on the ensuing drive when Mike MacArthur matched his career high with a 47-yard field goal with 6:14 left in the first. UMass coughed up the ball on the first play of its next possession when Evans stripped the ball from Jonathan Hernandez (29 rushes-89 yards, TD), and McNally recovered the fumble on the UMass 26. New Hampshire failed to capitalize, as MacArthur’s 37-yard field try went wide left with 4:02 left in the first quarter. UMass got on the board with 7:26 left in the opening half. Facing a 3rd-and-9 from the UNH 23, wide receiver Julian Talley (two rushes-31 yards, TD) took an end around, bounced off a tackle attempt at the 15 and spun his way into the end zone for his second rushing score of the season. The two-point try failed, however, allowing UNH to hold an 11-6 lead. The Wildcats went right back to work, going on a seven-play, 62-yard drive culminating in the second rushing TD of the game for Peters, who barreled in from a yard out. MacArthur’s PAT staked New Hampshire to an 18-6 lead with 5:18 left in the half. UMass scored the final points of the half on a four-yard TD rush from Hernandez with 19 seconds remaining in the second. Brendon Levongood’s point-after was no good, so the ‘Cats brought an 18-12 lead to the locker room. Massachusetts appeared to take its first lead of the contest on a 45-yard rushing touchdown by Hernandez early in the third quarter, but a holding penalty took the points off the board. The Minutemen then up came up completely empty handed when Pagel’s 4th-and-9 pass from the UNH 32 was broken up by Buzbee, preserving UNH’s six-point cushion. The Wildcats upped the lead to 24-12 with 4:42 left in the third quarter when Decker connected with tight end Sean Cullen (one catch-23 yards, TD) for a 23-yard TD strike on 3rd-and-11. That capped a six-play, 87-yard drive highlighted by a season-high 48-yard rush by Peters and a 17-yard run from Nico Steriti (eight rushes-56 yards/one catch-34 yards). The two-point try failed.The Minutemen reduced the Wildcats’ lead to 24-18 with 10:43 left in the game by going on a 19-play, 80-yard drive that chewed eight minutes and 59 seconds off the clock. Pagel kept for a five-yard touchdown run on 4th-and-4, meeting Beranger head-on at the 1-yard line before lunging into the end zone. Levengood again missed the PAT. MacArthur’s 35-yard field goal with 5:09 left increased the lead to 27-18. Brandon Yelovich hit a 22-yard field goal with 1:45 left to bring UMass within 27-21, but Justin Mello (one catch-six yards) recovered the subsequent onside kick and the Wildcats ran out the clock to ice the victory. Pagel went 25-for-42 for 249 yards and an interception, while Talley set career highs with 10 receptions for 113 yards in the losing effort.

The win propelled the Wildcats to 6-2 overall and 4-1 in the Colonial Athletic Association, while the Rams slipped to 2-6, 1-4 in the CAA. Dontra Peters led the ground attack with 13 carries for 92 yards and a touchdown. The junior tacked on 68 kick-return yards and a 19yard reception for a game-leading 179 all-purpose yards. Kevin Decker rushed for a career-best 78 yards and a touchdown while completing 14 of 21 passes for 257 yards. Chris Setian and R.J. Harris added rushing TDs for the Wildcats in their sixth straight home win against the Rams. Chris Beranger led UNH in tackles for the fifth time in the last six games after accumulating 13 stops, nine of them solo, his first career sack and a forced fumble. Matt Evans chipped in with nine tackles and an interception. Rhody appeared ready to take the lead on its initial possession when it advanced to the UNH 3-yard line, but quarterback Bob Bentsen coughed up the 2nd-and-goal snap and Alan Buzbee recovered the fumble for New Hampshire. The ‘Cats then proceeded to go on a 13-play, 97-yard drive that lasted more than five minutes before Setian (10 rushes-27 yards, TD) plunged in for a one-yard TD. The PAT from Mike MacArthur put UNH in front, 7-0, with 5:39 left in the first period. Decker went 5 of 5 for 70 yards on the drive, completing passes to five different receivers, capped by a 20-yard hookup with Cullen that placed the ball at the URI 1. UNH increased the lead to 14-0 with 8:45 remaining in the opening half courtesy of the first career rushing score for Harris (one rush-23 yards, TD), who took an end around pitch from Decker 23 yards to the end zone. That scoring drive was once again ignited by a Rams’ turnover in Wildcats’ territory, as defensive tackle Jimmy Vailas tipped Bentsen’s pass at the UNH 30 and Evans caught the deflection for his second INT of the year. Bentsen (20 of 31, 240 yards, TD, INT) bounced back to get Rhode Island on the board with 23 seconds left in the half on a 46-yard pass to Brandon Johnson-Ferrell (seven catches-89 yards). The two-point conversion try failed, so the home team took a 14-6 lead to the halftime break. Rhody attempted an onside kick to begin the second half, but the ploy backfired when the kick went out of bounds, giving New Hampshire possession at the URI 41. Peters then went to work, carrying once for 37 yards before scoring from four yards out for his fourth rushing score of the season. The PAT bumped the lead to 21-6 only 26 seconds into the third quarter. Rhode Island then went on an 18-point run over a span of 4:18 in the third quarter to seize the lead. Backup quarterback Steve Probst (three rushes-15 yards, two TDs) reached pay dirt on an 11-yard carry at the 10:09 mark that trimmed the deficit to 21-13, and he called his own number again for a one-yard TD with 7:24 left in the third. Following a successful two-point pass from Bentsen to Anthony Baskerville (five catches-57 yards), the game was deadlocked at 21. The Rams took their only advantage at 24-21 with 5:51 left in the quarter on a 43-yard field goal from Louis Feinstein. New Hampshire snapped out of its collective funk to reclaim the lead for good, 28-24, on Decker’s one-yard run, his team-leading seventh, with 3:58 remaining in the third. The signal caller set up his own score by completing a 12-yard pass to Chris Chandler (two catches, 29 yards) and a 14-yarder to Cullen before erupting for a career-high 40 yard rush to the URI 2. After a wild third quarter that produced 32 combined points, the only tally of the fourth quarter was MacArthur’s 28-yard field goal with 2:25 remaining. New Hampshire forced a Rhode Island punt with 4:41 remaining in the contest, and the Wildcats never gave the football back, maintaining possession on a final nine-play, 63-yard drive to run out the clock.

DURHAM, N.H. - Dontra Peters ran for a pair of touchdowns and Matt Evans notched 17 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery as ninth-ranked UNH topped No. 13 James Madison, 28-10, in a CAA conference game Saturday afternoon at Cowell Stadium. The Wildcats improved to 7-2 overall, 5-1 in the CAA, by winning for the seventh time in eight weeks, while the Dukes dropped to 5-4, 3-3 in the league. Peters carried 16 times for 87 yards, registering a three-yard TD run in the first quarter and a nine-yard scoring scamper in the second quarter. The junior added four receptions for 24 yards. Kevin Decker went 21 of 31 for 186 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Sean Cullen (two catches-24 yards, TD) was on the receiving end of Decker’s lone scoring toss, a 19-yard hookup in the final minute of the first half. After yielding 10 first-quarter points, the UNH defense shut out JMU for the rest of the contest. The Dukes, who gained 102 rushing yards on 11 carries in the opening stanza, were held to a mere 34 yards on 23 carries over the next three periods. Dukes quarterback Jace Edwards completed 18 of 31 passes for 159 yards and a TD, but he was picked off twice –once by Chris Houston (four tackles) and once by Kyle Flemings (seven tackles). Dae’Quan Scott rushed 13 times for 111 yards and a touchdown, chalking up 86 yards on five first-quarter carries but just 25 yards on his subsequent eight carries. R.J. Harris returned the opening kickoff 23 yards and, following a personal-foul penalty on James Madison, the ball was spotted at the UNH 49. Harris (three catches-51 yards) then snared a 20-yard post pass from Decker down to the JMU 31 before Peters carried three consecutive times, gaining 23 yards, 11 yards and then three yards for the TD. The Wildcats converted the twopoint try on a pass from Decker to Chris Setian (eight rushes-39 yards) for an 8-0 lead with 13:24 left in the first quarter. Scott’s 56-yard run highlighted the Dukes’ opening drive, which culminated in a 25-yard field goal from Cameron Starke with 10:59 left in the first that reduced New Hampshire’s lead to 8-3. Mike MacArthur kicked a 36-yard field goal with 7:38 remaining in the first to stake the ‘Cats to an 11-3 lead. Harris (78 kick-return yards) set up the scoring drive by returning the kickoff 55 yards to the JMU 25. James Madison quickly retaliated, with Scott again leading the way. The sophomore tailback recorded a 20-yard rush to the UNH 36. Later in the drive, Edwards rolled to his left and connected with tight end Brian Barlow (four catches-44 yards, TD) for a 17-yard touchdown, slicing the New Hampshire lead to 11-10 with 3:39 left in the quarter. The Wildcats struck once more in the opening period when Decker hit Cullen on a corner route in the right-hand side of the end zone on 3rd-and-10 from the 19 for an 18-10 lead with 54 seconds to go in the first. UNH upped the lead to 25-10 with 11:22 left in the first half by going on a methodical nine-play, 75-yard scoring drive that lasted three-and-a-half minutes. Setian’s 26-yard carry put the ‘Cats on JMU’s 27. Joey Orlando (four catches-32 yards) made a 17-yard catch on a slant to the Dukes’ 16, and Peters did the rest of the work with a seven-yard rush followed by a nine-yard TD carry. An apparent 17-yard Edwards-to-Barlow scoring strike with 3:54 left in the third quarter was negated by a holding penalty. On the very next play, Flemings recorded his second interception of the year, stepping in front of the receiver on a deep post pass to preserve the 15point cushion. The dominant New Hampshire defense stuffed Scott for a one-yard loss on 4th-and-1 from the UNH 2 with 13:53 left in the game. Chris Beranger (nine tackles) and Rod Walker (five tackles) combined on the critical stop. The Dukes were once again stymied on downs when Edwards’ 4th-and-4 pass from the UNH 30 went incomplete with 7:40 left to play. Evans iced the game by stripping JMU tailback Jordan Anderson (13 rushes-50 yards) on a rushing play, recovering the fumble at the Dukes’ 48 with 1:21 left.

Towson, which defeated UNH for the first time in eight all-time meetings, upped its record to 8-2 overall and 6-1 in the CAA, tied for first place in the league with Maine. The Wildcats, who saw their three-game winning streak snapped, fell to 7-3, 5-2 in the CAA. Decker completed 36 of 43 passes for 389 yards with a TD and three interceptions. He added a team-leading 75 rushing yards and two scores on 12 attempts. Towson freshman running back Terrance West gashed his way to a career-high 261 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 23 carries to lead a potent Tigers’ attack that racked up 517 yards of total offense. New Hampshire outgained Towson with a season-high 611 yards, but committed four turnovers in the contest. Matt Evans amassed a game-high 19 tackles to lead UNH, moving into third place on the school’s all-time, single-season list with 142 stops, 14 tackles behind his 2010 total, which is the second-most in University history. UNH scored on its initial drive, chalking up 84 yards on nine plays before Dontra Peters (nine rushes-32 yards, TD/two catches-five yards) carried in for a six-yard touchdown for a 7-0 lead with 11:22 left in the first quarter. Decker was 5 of 5 for 59 yards through the air on the drive, highlighted by a 37-yard completion to Justin Mello (four catches, 51 yards, TD) deep down the right sideline to the Tigers’ 12. Towson immediately responded with a 73-yard TD run from West with 9:48 left in the first to tie the game, 7-7. Grant Enders (14-for-18, 183 yards, 2 TDs, INT) connected with tight end James Oboh (three receptions-97 yards, 2 TDs), who bounced off a hit along the right sideline and raced to the end zone for a 56-yard touchdown and a 14-7 Tigers’ lead with 7:45 left in the quarter. That lead ballooned to 21-7 courtesy of a 45-yard interception return for a touchdown by cornerback Tye Smith, who snared Decker’s pass to the left flat and dashed untouched for the score with 6:54 left in the opening stanza. Decker pieced together his second 5-for-5 passing drive, accounting for 32 of the 51 yards on a possession that culminated in a five-yard TD strike to Mello that trimmed Towson’s advantage to 21-14 with 2:37 remaining in opening stanza. Decker, who had to slither out of danger in the backfield on 3rd-and-3 from the 5, lofted his 17th touchdown pass of the year to Mello in the back right-hand corner of the end zone. West notched his second rushing TD of the day, forging his way in from two yards to lift Towson’s lead to 28-14 with 13:13 left in the half. Enders and Oboh hooked up for their second TD pass-and-catch combination of the contest, this time an 11-yard connection, with 9:38 left in the half to expand the lead to 35-14. Back came the ‘Cats, with Decker orchestrating a six-play, 38-yard drive, completing back-to-back passes to tight end Sean Cullen (five catches-95 yards) for 17 and 22 yards, respectively, in the middle of the field to advance to Towson’s 13. Chris Chandler (two catches-20 yards) was on the receiving end of a 12-yard pass to the 1, and Decker called his own number on 2nd-and-goal to slice the deficit to 35-21 with 6:51 left in the half. The Tigers bumped their lead back to three scores when West rambled 69 yards for his third TD of the game for a 42-21 lead with 5:23 left in the half. Chris Setian (nine rushes-59 yards/five catches-49 yards) put a ribbon on an eight-play, 85-yard drive with his third rushing TD of the year, a four-yard carry with 2:25 left in the second quarter to bring UNH within 42-28 at the intermission. The halftime break failed to slow down the home team, evidenced by Derrick Joseph’s 93-yard kickoff return for a TD on the opening play of the third quarter for a 49-28 lead. Decker retaliated with his second rushing TD of the game, drawing UNH within 49-35 with 11:39 left in the third period. West tallied his fourth rushing score of the game, and nation-leading 25th of the season, on a two-yard carry with 6:21 left in the third to make it 56-35. Nico Steriti (10 rushes-56 yards, TD/eight catches-90 yards) provided the final points of the wild night with a three-yard touchdown scamper with 5:04 left in the game.

DURHAM, N.H. – Redshirt freshmen Nico Steriti and R.J. Harris combined for 373 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns to steal the Senior Day spotlight as 12thranked UNH rallied past No. 11 Maine, 30-27, before a crowd of 8,536 at Cowell Stadium on Saturday. In capturing the 99th all-time meeting between the CAA rivals, the Wildcats (8-3, 6-2 CAA) reclaimed the cherished Brice-Cowell Musket for the eighth time in nine years and likely punched their ticket to the NCAA Division I Football Championship tournament for a nation-leading eighth consecutive season. Maine (8-3, 6-2) saw its opportunity to claim a share of the CAA championship go by the wayside. Steriti, who made his first career start at running back in place of injured Dontra Peters, rushed for 150 yards on 21 carries, returned a kickoff 71 yards and totaled 237 all-purpose yards –all career highs. Harris tallied six catches for 106 yards, his fourth 100-yard receiving game of the season, and two touchdowns. Chris Beranger (game-high 16 tackles), Alan Buzbee (13 tackles) and Matt Evans (12 tackles) paced a Wildcat defensive effort that forced four turnovers. New Hampshire turned a four-point deficit into a 10-point lead within 15 seconds of the fourth quarter courtesy of two forced turnovers and subsequent TDs. Kevin Decker found Harris from five yards out with 13:41 left to stake the ‘Cats to their first lead, 23-20. The go-ahead score was set up by the second interception of the game from cornerback Chris Houston (five tackles), who picked a pass from Warren Smith and returned it 11 yards to Maine’s 18. Steriti carried four straight times, gaining 13 yards to the Maine 5 before Harris was the recipient of Decker’s third scoring pass of the game and league-leading 20th of the season. On the ensuing kickoff, Steven Thames (two tackles) knocked the ball loose from Maine return man Kendall James, and Manny Asam (five tackles) pounced on the loose ball on the Black Bears’ 18. Steriti wasted no time streaking in for the 18-yard TD with 13:26 left, putting UNH in front, 30-20. Decker finished the game 16-for-30 for 203 yards with three TDs and three INTs. Smith (24-for-41, 200 yards, TD, 3 INT/eight rushes-38 yards, TD) connected with Damarr Aultman (12 catches-105 yards, TD) for a 10-yard touchdown that sliced UNH’s lead to 30-27 with 9:23 remaining, but Chad Wilkes sealed the win for UNH by notching his first career interception on Smith’s desperation 4th-and-16 heave at the Wildcats’ 45 with 1:09 left. Maine capitalized on an interception to take a 7-0 lead with 10:22 left in the first quarter. Two plays after Troy Russell’s pick gave the Black Bears possession at UNH’s 36, Pushaun Brown (20 rushes-77 yards, TD) burst free for a 33-yard score. UNH squared the game at 7-7 when Decker hit Harris in stride down the left sideline for a 34-yard TD on a 4th-and-8 pass with 7:42 remaining in the first. The lead swung back to Maine, 14-7, with 56 seconds left in the opening stanza when Smith carried in from two yards out. Brian Harvey’s 41-yard field goal upped Maine’s advantage to 17-7 with 6:23 left in the first half. Mike MacArthur drew the Wildcats within 17-10 by kicking a 32-yard field goal with 18 seconds left before halftime. Early in the second half, a Steriti 56-yard rush coupled with a personal foul penalty put the ball on Maine’s 11. On 2nd-and-9 from the 10, Decker threw to Jimmy Giansante (one catch-10 yards-TD) in the left flat, and the redshirt freshman receiver followed his blockers into the end zone. The PAT failed, allowing Maine to maintain a 17-16 lead with 11:19 left in the third. Harvey’s 21-yard field goal with 2:29 left in the third built the Bears’ lead back to 20-16.

BOZEMAN, Mont. – Kevin Decker threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to Justin Mello with six seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, but the extra point was blocked, allowing seventh-ranked Montana State to pull out a 26-25 victory over 11th-ranked UNH in a second-round NCAA Division I FCS playoff game Saturday at Bobcat Stadium. UNH saw its season end at 8-4 overall, while Montana State improved to 10-2 and a quarterfinal game at top-seeded Sam Houston State next weekend. Chris Beranger recorded a game-high 15 tackles, and the Wildcats forced four turnovers, highlighted by a 58-yard interception return for a touchdown by Matt Evans (11 tackles). The Wildcats trailed 26-19 with 4:08 remaining in the fourth quarter, but Decker completed all six pass attempts in advancing the ball to the MSU 19-yard line. On second down, Decker was intercepted by Darius Jones at the 5 with 1:16 on the clock. UNH’s defense forced a three-and-out and MSU’s punt sailed out of bounds at the Bobcats’ 29 with 17 seconds to play. On first down, Decker’s pass attempt to the back-right corner of the end zone intended for Joey Orlando sailed wide out of bounds. Decker lofted the ball deep to the right corner on the next play, and Mello raced past the defender to catch the ball for a 29-yard touchdown that lifted New Hampshire within 26-25 with six seconds remaining. On the ensuing PAT, the kick by Mike MacArthur, who was 40-for-42 on PAT attempts this season (including 2 of 2 earlier in the game), was tipped by Steven Bethley and caromed off the right post. It marked the second time that the difference between the Wildcats and the Bobcats was a missed PAT in a playoff game, bringing back memories of the 1976 D-II playoff loss in Bozeman. New Hampshire received the opening kickoff and put together an 11-play, 45-yard drive that was capped by MacArthur’s 36-yard field goal for a 3-0 lead with 10:10 left in the first quarter. Montana State’s initial possession ended with a turnover when Sean McCann rushed QB DeNarius McGee, helping cause an overthrown pass that was intercepted by Rod Walker at the UNH 38 and returned 15 yards to the Bobcats’ 47. The Wildcats advanced into the red zone before coming up short on a 4th-and-2 play from the 17. The next Bobcats’ drive also came to an abrupt end when McGee’s 3rd-and-8 pass from the UNH 42 was intercepted by Evans, who raced back 58 yards for a touchdown, his third career pick-six and second of the season. That upped New Hampshire’s lead to 10-0 with 32 seconds remaining in the opening quarter. Montana State got on the scoreboard with 12:43 left in the second on a 41-yard field goal by Jason Cunningham that trimmed the deficit to 10-3. The Bobcats sliced the Wildcats’ lead to 10-9 on an 11-yard TD pass from McGee to Tray Robinson with 5:44 left in the half, but New Hampshire’s Steven Thames raced around the left end and blocked the PAT, which was scooped up by Anthony Gorrell and returned 86 yards for a two-point conversion and a 12-9 UNH advantage. UNH then parlayed another Montana State special teams miscue into points when Shawn Johnson fumbled a punt return that was recovered by Chris Setian at MSU’s 18. On the first play of the ensuing drive, Decker rolled to his left and completed a pass in the flat to Mello, who scampered down the sideline into the end zone for an 18-yard TD that built the lead to 19-9 with 3:04 remaining in the second quarter. The Bobcats ended the second quarter on an up note, compiling seven-play, 60-yard drive punctuated by McGee’s two-yard touchdown rush on 3rd-and goal with 25 seconds left. The PAT made the halftime score 19-16. MSU claimed its first lead, 23-19, with 10:52 left in the third when McGee called his own number, weaved through traffic and dashed 37 yards for a TD to conclude a seven-play, 80-yard drive. The Bobcats increased their lead to 26-19 with 9:38 left in the game on a 26-yard field goal by Jason Cunningham.
