University of New Hampshire 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. As a result of his outstanding coaching performance, 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 on 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.

His athleticism and competitive nature led him to being tabbed for the All Lebanon-Lancaster League as a defensive back and All Lebanon-Lancaster League in the 100-meter dash. “Kalil has great speed and extremely gifted feet,” McDonnell said. “He has good cover skills and a great nose for the ball.” Nick Cefalo, a three-year starter at Ridge High School, was named All-State First Team and All-County First Team by the Newark Star Ledger and First Team All-Area by the Courier News. As a senior, he was named Somerset County Player of the Year and Courier News Male Athlete of the Year. His career numbers at Ridge H.S. included 46 receptions for 1,010 yards and 15 touchdowns as a receiver and 778 yards rushing on 113 carries with four TDs as a halfback. From his defensive back position, Cefalo made seven interceptions, returning one for a touchdown, seeing time as both a cornerback and a free safety. Cefalo played a post-graduate season at Cheshire (Conn.) Academy, where he set a state record by returning five interceptions for touchdowns. He was named All-Colonial League and All-New England, leading New England in receiving and interceptions. Cefalo also captained the Cheshire basketball team and boasts an impressive 3.8 GPA. “Nick is an outstanding all-around athlete whose athleticism and skills will add depth to the free safety position at UNH,” McDonnell said. Mike DeTroia is an outstanding wide receiver prospect that finished his senior season with 62 receptions for 931 yards and 11 touchdowns, including a 98-yard scoring catch; on defense, DeTroia compiled eight interceptions from the safety position. He helped guide Barnegat High School to its most wins and first playoff berth in school history and was elected All-State First Team, All-N.J. Group 2 First Team, All-Shore First Team and a member of the N.J. Super 100 Team. DeTroia holds Barnegat H.S. career and season records for catches, receiving yards, touchdown catches and interceptions. “Mike has great size and has the ability to go get the ball,” McDonnell said. “He will be a big pass-receiving target for our offense.” Seth Geyer is a hard-hitting linebacker and fullback who led the Mars Area High School Fightin’ Planets to an impressive 10-2 record and a trip deep into the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletics League (WPIAL) playoffs. Hand-in-hand with a great scholastic career is a long list of accolades: All-Pennsylvania Second Team, 2010 Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Fabulous 22 Team and the Butler Eagle Sweet 16 High School Football All-Star Team –all as a linebacker. Over the course of his junior and senior seasons, Geyer accumulated 172 total tackles, nine sacks and 33 tackles for loss. The Fightin’ Planets won the Greater Allegheny Football Conference each of those seasons, and Geyer was rewarded by being named an All-Conference First Team performer as both a linebacker and fullback. “Seth is a physical downhill linebacker who tackles very well,” McDonnell said. “He is a versatile two-way player who will add depth to the linebacker position.” Sean Goldrich hails from Notre Dame High School in West Haven, Conn., where he compiled a 25-4 record as starting quarterback, including a state championship in his junior year. During that season, he threw for 1,700 yards, 21 touchdowns and only one interception to earn recognition on the Levi Jackson All-Area Team, All-State Second Team and Academic All-State. In his senior season, he passed for 1,800 yards, threw for 21 touchdowns and notched eight rushing TDs. He was named to the Levi Jackson All-Area Team, All-State First Team, All-Area Team and All-Conference First Team. As a baseball player, Goldrich batted .389 as a junior with 15 stolen bases, leading his team to the state championship game. “Sean is an athletic quarterback who possesses a strong arm,” McDonnell said. “He is a proven winner that will fit in well in our offensive scheme here at UNH.” Austin Heter, from Montour High School in McKees Rocks, Pa., is a long, rangy player. Heter led the Spartans to a 12-1 record as a senior, with the team’s lone defeat occurring in the WPIAL championship at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field. A great pass protector and a devastating


A LOOK AT THE 2011 UNH RECRUITS blocker, Heter paved the way for one of the most potent offenses in the WPIAL. Montour averaged 200 rushing yards and 170 passing yards en route to the Parkway Conference championship. Heter was rewarded by being named All-State First Team as an offensive lineman by both the Associated Press and the Pa. Football News. Additionally, he was a member of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette West Fabulous 22 Team and, as a junior and a senior, was recognized as an all-conference performer in the Parkway Conference. He was named Second Team offensive tackle as a junior and First Team offensive tackle and Second Team defensive tackle as a senior. The well-rounded athlete will graduate from Montour with a combined 11 varsity letters in football, basketball, track and volleyball. “Austin is a big, athletic tackle prospect who possesses a wide wing span for an offensive tackle,” McDonnell said. “His size and athleticism will add to our runand pass-blocking skills on the offensive line.” Zach Hundertmark is a big, athletic lineman from The Hun School of Princeton by way of West Windsor-Plainsboro South High School in N.J. As a senior, he was All-South Jersey First Team, All-Area First Team, a Parade All-American honorable mention and a two-time selection to the N.J. Super 100 Team, including his junior season. He was All-Prep First Team at the Hun School and has already enrolled at UNH for the spring semester. “Zach is a strong, physical run blocker with good balance who will give us depth at the interior offensive line positions,” McDonnell said. Mike Kelly played for coach Tony Johnson at Bishop Guertin High School, where he was awarded the Peter Keenan Memorial Scholarship in 2008. Kelly was a three-year starter for the Cardinals and led them to the Division II championship all three seasons. As a sophomore, Kelly earned All-State honorable mention running back; as a junior, he was named All-State First Team as a wide receiver and Division II Player of the Year by the NH Sports Page and was a nominee for the state’s Mr. Football Award. As a senior, Kelly was named team captain and ranked as the No. 1 football player in New Hampshire despite playing only one game due to injury. In that one game, he scored five touchdowns, four on the ground where he compiled 193 rushing yards, and one through the air among his 117 receiving yards. Kelly also played basketball and ran track at Bishop Guertin, earning All-Area and All-Star Boys Indoor Track honorable mention. As a junior, he was N.H. Outdoor Track All-State. “Mike is a very versatile athlete who can help us in multiple positions,” McDonnell said. “He has great ball skills, quick feet and great vision on both sides of the ball.” Shane McNeely comes to UNH from Allentown (Pa.) Central Catholic High School, where he was a Scholar Athlete and a two-sport athlete, playing football and basketball. On the gridiron, McNeely was named All-Conference First Team tight end for three years, All-Conference First Team linebacker for two seasons and All-Area First Team linebacker for two years. In his senior season, he led his team to a 16-0 record and the PIAA AAA State Championship while also earning conference Defensive Player of the Year honors and All-State First Team at linebacker. A four-year starter and captain during his senior campaign, McNeely was recently named to the prestigious Big 33 All-Star Game in Pa. As a four-year starter in basketball, McNeely earned all-conference honors in his junior year, averaging 15 points per game. “Shane is a big, explosive tight end/defensive end athlete who will help us in multiple positions,” McDonnell said. “He has a great sense for the ball on the defensive side and is a physical blocker on the offensive side.” Douglas (D.J.) Moss is an impressive defensive back that brings speed and athleticism to the UNH secondary. His abilities to make big plays and cover man-to-man will be a great addition to the defensive backfield. Moss finished his senior year as Columbia (Ala.) High School with 51 tackles and 247 career stops. In addition, he snared nine career interceptions, including three in his senior year, returned two picks for touchdowns and forced five fumbles in his career. On offense, Moss finished with 70 receptions for 740 yards in his career, earning All-City First Team and All-Region First Team honors as a senior. Moss also received the Most Determined Player award for Columbia. “Moss is an impressive athlete who runs a 4.47 40 and has a 37-inch vertical jump,” McDonnell said. “D.J. grew up in Springfield, Mass., and is also an outstanding player on his high school basketball team.” Dan Riley hails from Northampton Area High School in Pa. where he was tabbed as the team Defensive Player of the Year as a senior, was an All-Conference First Team defensive end and The Morning Call and Express-Time All-Area Second Team performer. Riley compiled 97 tackles, 21 tackles for loss, as well as four pass break-ups during his senior season. As a junior, he recorded 94 tackles, 20 for loss, 15 pass break-ups, three fumble recoveries and two interceptions. “Dan is a big-framed defensive end who is long and rangy,” McDonnell said. “He plays with a high motor and has great size potential for a defensive end prospect.” Jullian Turner was a rare four-year starter at Woodland Hills High School, leading the Wolverines to back-to-back WPIAL AAAA Big East championships. The school also had the distinction of competing in consecutive WPIAL championships during his junior and senior campaigns, claiming the state title in Turner’s junior year. He was voted All-Big East First Team as a defensive lineman and a center in both his junior and senior seasons. He led his squad in pancake blocks and, ultimately, was selected to play in the Big 33 Football Classic, which pits Pennsylvania’s best seniors against Ohio’s best. In addition, Turner posted a 3.5 GPA and was a member of the National Honor Society. “Jullian is another big body, an athletic physical player that will add size and strength to our interior defense,” McDonnell said. Ryan Welch is a versatile two-way lineman who helped lead Lawrence (Ma.) Academy to an 8-1 record and a berth in the Tom Flaherty Bowl this past season. As an offensive lineman, he helped clear the way for an outstanding total of 2,702 rushing yards on the season and an average of 300 yards per game. As an interior defensive lineman, he recorded 29 tackles, 12 solo, to go along with three sacks for a loss of 16 yards. As a junior, Welch helped lead the team to a 9-0 mark and an ISL Championship, beating Kimball Union Academy in the Samson/Lorden Bowl. He recorded 39 total tackles, 14 solo, and was second on the team with four sacks for a loss of 25 yards. As a starting right guard, he helped the offense average 342 rushing yards per game. Welch capped his career at Lawrence by being named First Team All-ISL as a defensive lineman as a senior. “Ryan is a big, strong two-way line prospect that can really run for a player his size,” McDonnell said. “He will give up size and athleticism in the interior parts of our defense.”


THE 2011 UNH OUTLOOK The University of New Hampshire football team prepares to embark on its 2011 campaign filled with promise to extend the nation’s longest Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) postseason streak to an eighth consecutive year. The Wildcats, who reached the NCAA Division I quarterfinals for the sixth time in seven years, completed the season with an 8-5 record, stretching their string of being ranked in the Top 25 to an astounding 97 consecutive weeks. That is the longest streak in the ultra-competitive Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) and dates back to Sept. 13, 2004. The 2010 UNH football team made history by defeating 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 view a CAA game (32,848), but 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 Championship 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 traditional 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 spring 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, 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 6-2, 201-pound QB has shined when his number’s been called, never brighter than his lone start of the 2010 season. Decker was at the helm of the Wildcats’ 45-20 NCAA second-round playoff victory at BethuneCookman 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 competition for backup quarterback is wide open this spring, including junior James Brady (5-10, 205), a transfer from Georgetown who sat out last season due to NCAA transfer regulations. Brady will be vying with a pair of redshirt freshmen –Alex Park (6-1, 190) and Andy Vailas (5-11, 175)- for the right to back up Decker. 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 5-11, 192-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, 226) will complement Peters’ speed with a bruising between-the-tackles running ability. Setian led UNH with 5.1 yards per carry last season, gaining 184 yards on 36 carries. The East Longmeadow, Mass., native scored one touchdown and his downhill style helped him avoid any rushes for negative yardage. A number of youngsters will be in the mix for carries, with sophomore Derek Coppola (5-7, 182) looking to bounce back from a leg injury that cut short his season after two games, nine carries and 19 yards. Redshirt freshmen Jimmy Owens (5-8, 200) and Nico Steriti (5-11, 205) bided their time on the practice field in 2010 and should provide depth to the backfield this season.


THE 2011 UNH OUTLOOK

WIDE RECEIVER: Junior wideout Joey Orlando is on the precipice of stardom at UNH. As a sophomore, the 5-11, 197-pound 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, 216-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, 180). Mangieri had his junior campaign derailed before it really even got started when he suffered a broken leg in the fall Blue-White 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, 213) received some valuable on-thejob 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, 205) and R.J. Harris (6-0, 180), who should also see time at slot receiver. OFFENSIVE LINE: After losing only one core member, the offensive line boasts a collective unit featuring six individuals with extensive playing experience –all of whom started multiple games last season. Incredibly, left guard George Pecoraro (6-3, 285) is the only senior in the trenches. The Cresskill, N.J., native should be flanked by left tackle Walter McCarthy (6-5, 275), who will be counted on to replace the departed Seth Price. The intriguing spring competition comes at center, where junior incumbent Chris Zarkoskie (6-1, 290) will battle to fend off sophomore Ricky Archer (6-2, 280), who started games at both guard positions in ’10. Sophomore Seamus O’Neill (6-3, 280) is in line to nail down the right guard slot, which he shared with Archer last season, while junior Mickey DiLima (6-4, 317) prepares to start at right tackle for the second year in a row. After missing last season due to illness, junior Isaiah Martin (6-2, 300) is back in camp looking to move up the depth chart. Sophomores Sean Ryan (6-2, 295) and James Scafate (6-4, 296) will compete with redshirt freshmen Robert Bowman (6-5, 275) 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, 254) 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 with 24 receptions for 205 yards and a touchdown. Cullen (64, 235) 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-andcoming redshirt freshmen Brian Ciccone (6-3, 215) and Harold Spears (6-4, 210). 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 (6-3, 258) had one of the most dominating pass-rushing seasons ever witnessed in Durham, setting a school record with a CAA-leading 13.5 sacks. The College Sporting News Sweet-63 All-America, 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, 232) 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, 254) 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, 300) 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 replace the departed Steve Young is sophomore Sean McCann (6-2, 257), who made seven tackles in seven games last season. Junior Randi Vines (6-3, 255) was on the brink of a breakout season, 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. Redshirt freshman Tim Johnson (6-2, 275) is being transitioned from offensive line to defensive line and figures to be in the front-four mix this season.


THE 2011 UNH OUTLOOK 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, 219) burst upon the national stage in 2010 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 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 AllAmerica; The Sports Network/Fathead.com All-America Second Team and All-CAA Second Team. Buzbee (6-3, 238) 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, 233) and Mark Petercuskie (5-11, 225) 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 capitalize on a strong spring camp to fill the vacancies left by the graduations of Hugo Souza, Ryan McGuinness, John Greer and Mike Perkins. Senior Rod Walker (6-0, 207) 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, 191) 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, 180) looks to make a successful conversion from wide receiver to strong safety this spring. Expect to see strong candidacy from junior Tyler Sargent (5-9, 207), who made seven tackles in seven games last season before an injury ended his season early, and redshirt freshmen Chad Wilkes (6-0, 175) and Tre Williams (6-3, 190). CORNERBACKS: Senior Kyle Flemings (5-10, 180) 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 break-ups, nab four interceptions, force a fumble and recover two fumbles while starting every game. Senior Anthony Gorrell (5-10, 165) is primed to step into a start-

ing 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, 170) and redshirt freshman Steven Thames (6-0, 170) begin the spring 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 AllCAA 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 sophomore A.J. DeLago (Menands, N.Y.) 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, and entering spring, redshirt freshman Brad Prasky (5-11, 180) has a leg up on the competition. 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 (Gilman, Conn.) 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 halfsack. 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 University of New Hampshire football team, ranked #5 in the nation in the FCS, 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). Sean Jellison and Terrance Fox were the next top targets with 46 and 42 receiving yards, respectively. 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 left 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. Sunseri accounted for 54 of the 62 yards on the eight-play drive that took just one minute, highlighted by a 26-yard run to the UNH 11-yard line. 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 24-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 football team 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, Rhode Island defensive end Victor Adesanya sacked UNH senior 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. Sophomore 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 then outran the Rams’ defense 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 senior wide receiver Kevon Mason along the right sideline for a 19-yard score. Junior quarterback Kevin Decker hooked up with senior 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 quarter on a five-yard pass from Probst to junior wide receiver Anthony Baskerville. On Rhode Island’s next scoring drive, Probst called his own number and rumbled 58 yards down to the UNH 6-yard line. Again, the Wildcats’ defense held, and 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 freshman 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 period. 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-yard line with :45 remaining in the third quarter, and Dino Vasso registering his first interception of the year, snatching a Probst throw at the UNH 42-yard line with 12:45 remaining in the fourth period. 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, as Rhody reclaimed the lead, 21-18. 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 the 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 University of New Hampshire 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 (4.9 yards per carry), 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 a 3rd-and-10 play, 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 quarter. 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 first 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 the Lehigh 10-yard line and fought his way the final few yards for the touchdown. The Wildcats’ defense once again flexed its collective muscle on Lehigh’s next drive, with junior defensive end Brian McNally (Cornwall, N.Y.) sacking Colvin for a 10-yard loss, one of McNally’s seven tackles (four solo) on the afternoon. Two plays later, sophomore linebacker Matt Evans (Hanover, Mass./10 tackles) applied pressure on Colvin, forcing an errant pass that was intercepted by Dino Vasso (Crum Lynne, Pa.) at Lehigh’s 35-yard line. 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 (Wakefield, Mass./two catches-27 yards); senior Sean Jellison (Amherst, N.H./one catch-4 yards/15 carries-35 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 Maine Black Bears 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 match-up. With the score tied 13-13 at the end of regulation, UNH had the opening possession in overtime. Following a one-yard loss on first down, quarterback R.J. Toman lofted a pass towards the left slot for Joey Orlando, but Maine defensive back Jerron McMillian cut in front of the intended receiver 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 junior 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. – Senior 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. Senior safety Mike Perkins also notched two interceptions for UNH (3-3, 1-2 Colonial Athletic Association), while junior cornerback Kyle Flemings and senior 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 third-and-3 pass from Corp along the left sideline, sprinting untouched 40 yards for his first career touchdown. Freshman 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 senior safety Ryan McGuinness (four tackles) knocked the ball loose from Spider running back Tyler Kirchoff (17 rushes-108 yards), and sophomore 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 senior 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 junior 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 senior quarterback R.J. Toman to sophomore 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 from the Richmond 35 to its 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; sophomores 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. Senior 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. Noble’s 44-yard scamper on 3rd-and-2 from the JMU 31 extended the drive and put the Dukes in scoring position. 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 opening period. 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 defensive pass interference on 3rd-and-13 extended the Dukes’ drive, and one play later Noble ran outside the left tackle untouched into the end zone from two yards out to give the home team 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 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. Cullen finished the day with four catches for a game-leading 66 yards. JMU marched to the UNH 28 on its next possession, but lost two yards on consecutive running plays and then Brian McNally and Lance Mailloux combined on an eight-yard sack to force the Dukes to punt.UNH regained the lead for good, 21-14, with an eight-play, 64-yard drive that spanned the third and fourth quarters. The drive opened with 59 seconds left in the third and on 2nd-and-14, Fox spun out of a tackle at the 40 and picked up 10 more yards to give the ‘Cats first down at midfield. Toman completed a 25-yard pass to Cullen and a 14-yard pass to Peters to advance the ball to the JMU 16. 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 shovelpass 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 (Wakefield, Mass.) 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 University of New Hampshire football team made history with a 39-13 victory over arch-rival and 12th-ranked Massachusetts before a Colonial Athletic Association record crowd of 32,848 in the inaugural Colonial Clash, the first-ever collegiate football game at Gillette Stadium. UNH sophomore 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. Sophomore running back Dontra Peters gained 98 yards on 23 carries, scoring a pair of rushing touchdowns, and senior 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 and its 13th consecutive home victory. 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 senior Kyle Auffray grazed the leg of a Massachusetts player, and junior 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-yard line, but a fumble from Jonathan Griffin was recovered by Brian McNally at the 36. The Wildcats then went on a 12-play, 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 quarter 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 senior 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, down 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 quarter. 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 a fourth-and-1 play, 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. Peters concluded the drive with his second scoring run, a two-yarder with 7:42 in the game, staking UNH to a 36-6 lead. A.J. Delago provided the game’s final points with an 18-yard field goal with 3:38 remaining. It was DeLago’s second made field goal of the season and first attempt since a 22-yard make at Pittsburgh on Sept. 11. 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 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 five-yard line, and Cody Muller recovered with 13 seconds left in the fourth quarter to preserve the 17th-ranked football team’s 31-24 upset victory over the ninth-ranked Villanova Wildcats 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-of-22 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 saw its chances to defend its national championship damaged, falling 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 UNH senior safety Ryan McGuinness recovering on ‘Nova’s 24-yard line. New Hampshire failed to capitalize, however, 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-and-out, with junior 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. Redshirt-freshman H-back Chris Setian sealed the edge with the key block, allowing Peters to gain the sideline. Following DeLago’s extra point, it was a 7-0 UNH lead with 10:49 remaining in the opening quarter. Villanova fumbled the ensuing kickoff, and UNH senior safety Mike Perkins (four tackles) dove on the loose ball at the ‘Nova 16. Peters’ 12-yard cutback run gave UNH first-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 first half by putting together a systematic 17-play, 86-yard drive that ended in a 10-yard touchdown run from Angelo Babbaro (six carries-43 yards-TD) 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- to cap a seven-play, 43-yard drive 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, bulldozing his way in 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 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. Fox made a team-high five receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown.Villanova would climb back within a touchdown just 10 seconds into the fourth quarter when Whitney carried in from two yards out for his second scoring run of the afternoon, dropping UNH’s advantage to 31-24. 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). +Facing 3rd-and-5 at the UNH 20 with 30 seconds to play, Whitney’s pass fell incomplete but the defense was whistled for pass interference, which spotted the ball at the 5-yard line. 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.

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’s 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 (Mission Viejo, Calif.), junior quarterback Kevin Decker (Armonk, N.Y.) 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 second-round 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 third-quarter points. Decker, making only his second career start, found sophomore Joey Orlando (Bethlehem, Pa.) for a five-yard touchdown at 10:45; Chris Chandler (Wakefield, Mass.) hauled in his first career scoring grab, a 63-yard catch-and-run score at 5:25; and Terrance Fox (Piscataway, N.J.) 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 (East Longmeadow, Mass.) 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 (Menands, N.Y.) kicked a 30-yard field goal with 2:10 left to cap UNH’s scoring. Senior captain Sean Jellison (Amherst, N.H.) 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 44yard line when senior captain Dino Vasso (Crum Lynne, Pa.) 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 44-yard 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 (Piscataway, N.J.) matched a career-high with 11 catches for 72 yards, and Brian McNally (Cornwall, N.Y.) 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 (North Hampton, N.H.). UNH strung together a 14-play, 75-yard drive that chopped 6:14 off the clock. Quarterback R.J. Toman (Mission Viejo, Calif.) 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 (East Longmeadow, Mass.), 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 (Cornwall, N.Y.), 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 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.
