.%7 (!-03()2% Nestled in New Hampshire’s seacoast region, the UNH campus offers a pleasing mix of classic and modern buldings and college greens that gradually gives way to 2,600 acres of woods, fields, and farms.

The University prides itself as being a Top-10 entrepreneurial campus (Forbes.com and The Princeton Review). The Whittemore School of Business and Economics was recently selected second among all business schools in a nationwide pool of business school deans.

Students who choose UNH often do so because of the seemingly endless options offered through an accessible system of schools and colleges. UNH offers literally thousands of courses in more than 100 majors. UNH is one of the leading research schools on the East coast. A land-, sea- and space grant university, our University engages under graduates in the intellectual excitement of research.

The Wildcat sculpture, commissioned by the UNH alumni association, was created by Matthew Grey Palmer and is displayed on Main Street in front of the Whittemore Center and Memorial Field.

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 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. 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. UNH opened the campaign with a 4-0 record, its best start since 1977, and finished the season with a 6-5 record. McDonnell was named the Gridiron Club Of Greater Boston College Head Coach Of The Year. In his rookie season, 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 QBs 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 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: Tim and Tommy.

UNH FOOTBALL - NATION-LEADING 8 STRAIGHTNCAAAPPEARANCES

2012 SEASON PREVIEW

The University of New Hampshire football program enters the 2012 season 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 season-ending 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 wide receiver Justin Mello in the back right corner of the end zone. QUARTERBACKS UNH turns the page 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) held a slight advantage over sophomore Andy Vailas (6-2, 187) following spring camp, with redshirt freshman Sean Goldrich (6-3, 205) also vying for an opportunity to win the starting job. Brady, who gained valuable playing time during two seasons at Georgetown prior to transferring to New Hampshire, went 13 of 17 for 300 yards in the spring Blue-White Game and 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. Vailas raced for a 90-yard TD in the Blue-White Game last spring while completing 2 of 7 passes for 18 yards and a score. The Bedford, N.H., native completed 3 of 4 passes for 18 yards in two games as Decker’s understudy last season. 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. In the Blue-White Game, Goldrich went 10 of 15 for 147 yards and a touchdown. RUNNING BACKS The running back position boasts nearly as much experience as the QB post lacks, with all four of last season’s top RBs returning to the backfield this season. Senior co-captain 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 backfield’s top receiving threat with 27 receptions for 174 yards. Sophomore Nico Steriti (5-11, 214) proved capable when called upon, highlighted by a career day in a win against Maine when he rumbled for 150 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries.

Dontra Peters 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 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. Owens played sparingly in his initial 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. WIDE RECEIVERS A talented and deep receiving corps, buoyed by a pair of AllCAA members, should ease the transition of UNH’s new starting quarterback. Sophomore R.J. Harris (6-0, 190/Second Team) and senior Joey Orlando (5-11, 194/Third Team) were a dynamic duo last season. Harris burst upon the scene en route to a place on the College Sports Journal All-Freshman 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 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

of Bethlehem, Pa., 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 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), who was honored with the Todd Walker Teammate Award in May, also hopes to join the fray as a veteran presence. Joining this collection is fleet-footed redshirt freshman Jared Allison (5-8, 164) 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 Nwokoye (6-5, 216) also will get an opportunity to compete for playing time.

Ricky Archer WWW.UNHWILDCATS.COM

Chris Zarkoskie OFFENSIVE LINE All five starters, plus two key reserves, remain intact, making this unit potentially the strongest on the team. Junior Seamus O’Neill (6-6, 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 and co-captain Chris Zarkoskie (6-1, 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 his first collegiate campaign. 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) and Sean Ryan (6-2, 286) will vie for higher positions on the depth chart with a slew of talented 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 season. Gone are co-captain Brian McNally, an All-CAA, All-New England and ECAC First Team All-Star defensive end, and James Jenkins, the Jack French Unsung Hero award winner and two-year starter at DE. The bookends combined for 71 tackles and 11

2012 SEASON PREVIEW

sacks last season. The departure of the senior tandem should be offset by the return of junior ends Jay Colbert (6-1, 262) and Cody Muller (6-2, 250), both of whom are geared up to return to the forefront after missing the ‘11 season recovering from injuries. Also looking to fill the void will be sophomore Robbie Zauck (6-2, 250) and senior Randi Vines (6-3, 261), who 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 that 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 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. LINEBACKER To suggest expectations are high for this group would be a massive understatement. Both incumbent MLBs are senior cocaptains 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

Alan Buzbee 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 to go along with 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), snared three interceptions, including two pick-sixes, recorded two sacks, three forced 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, 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 native of Whitehall, Pa., registered at least one tackle in each of the nine games in which he appeared and notched a fumble recovery. Junior Steve Collister (5-10, 249) and senior Michael Bradley (6-2, 229) provide depth and experience to the linebacking corps, while sophomore Damien Francis (6-0, 211) and redshirt freshman Akil Anderson (6-1, 197) will seek to open some eyes with an impressive camp.

2012 SEASON PREVIEW

SAFETY 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 first-string 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 junior is entrenched as the starting strike safety coming off a season that saw him record 75 tackles while starting all 12 contests. The Bloomfield, N.J., native notched 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, and competition should be fierce among sophomore Tim Pike (5-10, 199) and redshirt freshmen Khyheem Finley (5-10, 193) and Keith Parkinson (6-1, 191) to gain a stronger foothold on the depth chart. CORNERBACK 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,

Chris Houston

Chris Beranger 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. D.J. Moss (5-10, 166), Kalil Bailey (5-10, 172) and Lamar Edmonds (5-10, 165) lead the redshirt freshmen who will be in the mix for significant playing time. 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 All-CAA Second Team kicker went 15-for-18 (83.3%) with a long kick of 47 yards last season while converting 40 of 43 PATs for a team-leading 85 points. The North Hampton, N.H., native averaged 38.3 yards per punt with a long of 59 yards. Among those who will get a closer look as potential backups are junior Nick Pellino (6-1, 208), sophomores Brad Prasky (6-1, 185) and Anthony Guidice (5-8, 164) and redshirt freshman Christian Breda (6-2, 181). KICK/PUNT RETURNS Peters ranked third in the CAA with 24.6 yard per kickoff return and tied a school record with 31 kick returns (Corey Graham, 2005) last season. He returns along with both Steriti (13 returns-278 yards) and Harris (13 returns-212 yards), who bring experience to that facet of the game. 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 56yard TD at Lehigh.

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 TD 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 to trim Toledo’s lead to 44-15. The Rockets 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, 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 score 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. 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.

Orlando notched a career-best 166 receiving yards on 10 catches, matching a personal best. The junior wide receiver also recorded a 17-yard TD 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 OT 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 the fourth. Kevin Decker registered the first 300-yard passing game of his career, completing 23 of 34 attempts for 330 yards and three touchdowns while also rushing for a pair of two-yard TDs. 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 pick by Kyle Flemings at the UNH 2 on the final play of OT. Lehigh QB Chris Lum went 36 of 54 for 401 yards and six TDs 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 TD 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. 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 Hawks’ 29. 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 score, the first of Harris’ career, with 11:51 left in the third for a 38-20 lead. 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.

Harris hauled in 12 catches for 120 yards and two touchdowns, including a 47-yarder 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 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 to stake the Wildcats to a 45-36 lead with 2:45 left. Richmond RB Kendall Gaskins (16 rushes-81 yards-3 TDs) scored on a one-yard rush for his third score 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 TDs in the losing effort. The Wildcats, who fell behind 10-0 after one quarter, seized 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 lead. It marked Vines’ second career pick-six; he previously returned an INT 30 yards for a score against Central Conn. State on Sept. 4, 2010. UNH forced another turnover on the ensuing kickoff when Chris Setian jarred the ball loose from Tremayne Graham and Chris Houston recovered the fumble on the Spiders’ 31. Three players later, Decker called his own number and zipped in for an 18-yard TD, pushing UNH’s lead to 21-10 with 10:23 left in the half. Richmond drew to within 21-13 when Will Kamin drilled a 45-yard FG with 7:31 left in the half. The Wildcats registered their second pick-six of the game when Evans returned an INT 31 yards with 5:54 left in the second, staking UNH to a 28-13 lead. It was the second career pick-six 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, the Spiders lined up for a field goal, only to direct snap to Gaskins, who sprinted around the right end for a TD and a 28-20 deficit. Peters took the opening kickoff of the second half 70 yards, a career high, to the Richmond 26. The ‘Cats capitalized on the short field when Decker rushed for his second score of the contest, this time from 12 yards out to build UNH’s advantage to 35-20 with 13:33 left in the third. UNH reclaimed a 38-23 lead when Mike MacArthur hit a 23-yard FG on the first play of the fourth. Richmond’s response was Gaskins’ second rushing TD of the game, a 13-yard carry with 10:45 left 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.

The Wildcats (3-1, 1-0 CAA) notched their third straight victory and made it seven consecutive wins in home openers. The Crusaders (2-2, 1-0 Patriot League) saw their two-game winning streak snapped in the first meeting between the two New England FCS schools since 1984. Decker went 23 of 31 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 TD. 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.

Taggart also rushed 12 times for 55 yards and a pair of TDs. Kyle Toulouse amassed 13 receptions for 110 yards and Gerald Mistretta added six catches for 136 yards to lead the Crusaders. UNH snapped a 32-32 tie when Decker found Mello down the right sideline for a 40-yard score, which was the sophomore receiver’s first career TD catch. 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 when Decker hit Jimmy Giansante 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 TD 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 31yard 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 FG on the final play of the half. The Wildcats’ biggest lead of the afternoon came on Decker’s third scoring strike of the day, a five-yard pass to Joey Orlando with 10:22 to play in the third for a 25-13 lead. 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 PAT with 11:36 left in the game. Moments earlier, Mistretta caught a 4th-and-3 pass and raced 35 yards to the end zone, tying the score, 25-25. UNH reclaimed the lead, 32-25, when Chris Setian (eight rushes-64 yards, TD) bruised his way in for a one-yard TD run with 9:53 left in the fourth. The score was set up by Decker’s 47-yard pass to Mello down to the Holy Cross 1. Taggart once again brought the Crusaders even at 32-32 by scampering in for a 13-yard TD. his second of the game, with 2:30 left in the contest.

UNH earned its fourth consecutive win to up its record to 4-1, 1-0 in the CAA. 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 QB 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 TD reception with 6:11 left in the second to push UNH’s lead to 24-3. Giansante (three catches-58 yards, TD) snared a 16-yard scoring strike early in the fourth, increasing the Wildcats’ lead to 44-10 with 13:42 remaining. Decker (six rushes-46 yards, TD) got the scoring started by rushing for a three-yard TD, his sixth, just 2:45 into the opening stanza. He then kept it himself for the successful two-point conversion and an 8-0 UNH lead. Brian McNally spearheaded the squad’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, staking UNH to a commanding 34-10 lead. 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. Mike MacArthur improved to 7-for-7 in field-goal attempts 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 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 QB Chris Polony, who replaced ineffective starter Chris Cullicerto (2-for-7, seven yards), went 15 of 19 for 120 yards with two INTs 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 sixth-ranked UNH 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 CAA, by posting its ninth straight win over the Wildcats, who fell to 4-2, 2-1 in the league. 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, 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. 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 in the half. 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, staking the home team to a 14-10 advantage. W&M’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 FG 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 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 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. UNH threatened on its next possession, advancing to the Tribe 22 before Decker was sacked on 4th-and-3. However, W&M’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.

UNH improved to 5-2 with the victory and 3-1 in the CAA. UMass tumbled to 4-3 overall. Peters carried 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 TD. Matt Evans spearheaded the defensive attack with 13 tackles, 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 UNH defense that forced two fumbles and notched an interception. Peters returned the game’s opening kickoff 44 yards to the UMass 42. The junior RB 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, lined up as a tight end, in the end zone for an 8-0 lead with 12:01 left in the first. 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 for his team-leading third pick of the year. UNH seized an 11-0 advantage on the next drive when Mike MacArthur matched his career high with a 47-yard FG 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. UMass got on the board with 7:26 left in the first half. Facing a 3rd-and-9 from the UNH 23, WR Julian Talley 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 PAT was no good, so the ‘Cats brought an 18-12 lead to the locker room. The Wildcats upped the lead to 24-12 with 4:42 left in the third when Decker connected with TE Sean Cullen 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. 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 nine minutes 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 FG with 1:45 left to bring UMass within 27-21, but Justin Mello 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 CAA, 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 19-yard 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 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. 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 JohnsonFerrell (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, 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 reclaimed 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 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.

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 TD and an interception. Sean Cullen 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 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 two-point try on a pass from Decker to Chris Setian for an 8-0 lead with 13:24 left in the first. Scott’s 56-yard run highlighted the Dukes’ opening drive, which culminated in a 25-yard FG 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 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 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 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 15-point 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 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 46 passes for 389 yards with a TD and three interceptions.

Towson freshman RB Terrance West gashed his way to a career-high 261 rushing yards and four TDs 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. UNH scored on its initial drive, chalking up 84 yards on nine plays before Dontra Peters 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 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 INT 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 the first. 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. Decker orchestrated 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 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 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. West tallied his fourth rushing score of the game 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.

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, 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 knocked the ball loose from Maine return man Kendall James, and Manny Asam pounced on the loose ball at 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. 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 TD that sliced UNH’s lead to 30-27 with 9:23 remaining, but Chad Wilkes sealed the win by notching his first career INT 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. 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 FG 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 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.

UNH saw its season end at 8-4 overall, while Montana State improved to 10-2. Chris Beranger recorded a game-high 15 tackles, and the Wildcats forced four turnovers, highlighted by a 58-yard interception return for a TD by Matt Evans (11 tackles). UNH trailed 26-19 with 4:08 remaining, 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 second down, Decker lofted the ball deep to the right corner and Mello raced past the defender to haul in a 29-yard TD 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, 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 FG for a 3-0 lead with 10:10 left in the first. 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 FG 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 Steven Thames raced around the left end and blocked the PAT, which was scooped up by Anthony Gorrell and returned 86 yards for a twopoint 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 half on an up note with 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 Cunningham’s 26-yard field goal.

UNH FOOTBALL - NATION-LEADING 8 STRAIGHTNCAAAPPEARANCES

THE COLONIAL ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION

Two National Championships, four NCAA Championship game appearances, eight NCAA semifinal appearances and more than 30 postseason wins in five years under the CAA Football banner...Unprecedented numbers in terms of Football Championship Subdivision success. CAA Football raised the profile of what was once the Yankee Conference and later the Atlantic 10 Conference when it took the reins of the league in 2007. Now five years into the CAA’s leadership the league has cemented itself as an FCS power conference in terms of on-the-field success, television exposure, marketability and success of its players at the next level. CAA Football may have not been represented on the day of the 2012 NCAA Championship game, but it was certainly recognized on the eve of the contest. UNH linebacker Matt Evans, Towson head coach Rob Ambrose and his rookie running back Terrance West helped CAA Football take home three of the four top national honors from The Sports Network. Evans, a junior in 2011, became the league’s third Buck Buchanan National Defensive Player of the Year. Ambrose earned the league’s sixth Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year Award and West was the inaugural recipient of the Jerry Rice National Freshman of the Year honor. Towson logged one of the best turnarounds in all of college football, improving from a one-win campaign in 2010 to a 9-3 overall mark and the CAA Football outright league championship in 2011. The Tigers, picked to finish last in the league’s preseason poll, finished 7-1 against league foes and ended 2011 ranked No. 9 in the country. Towson’s CAA Football championship made it one of five CAA Football programs to earn a berth in the NCAA Championship field, a mark no other FCS conference has ever equaled. James Madison and Old Dominion each garnered first-round playoff victories, helping CAA Football make up five of the final 16 teams in the NCAA’s second round. Maine went on the road and topped perennial power Appalachian State in the second round, but the remaining four (James Madison, UNH, Old Dominion and Towson) all stumbled. The Black Bears’ season ended the next weekend when it lost at Georgia Southern in the NCAA quarterfinal round. Richmond gave the league its ninth win over a BCS/FBS opponent in the last five years when it upset Duke, 23-21, to open the season. CAA Football has won 17 contests against the upper level of major college football in the last 10 years. The league’s regular-season non-conference success was never better than in 2011, finishing 19-2 (.905) in matchups against FCS opponents outside of CAA Football. Beginning in 2012, CAA Football will kick off a five-year agreement the Colonial Athletic Association inked with the NBC Sports Group in February. The broadcast agreement will provide CAA Football a minimum of five national television broadcasts on the NBC Sports Network and continue its regional television coverage with an additional 13 broadcasts using the Comcast SportsNet regional networks. The CAA and CAA Football is the first collegiate athletic conference to sign a broadcast agreement with the NBC Sports Network, which launched January 2, 2012. The league has earned 80 total playoff berths, including 37 in the last 10 seasons. Getting into the playoffs isn’t where the success stops, as evidenced by 52 playoff wins since 2002. CAA Football has continued to make its presence felt at the national level by placing eight teams in the national semifinal round over the last five seasons and advancing a team to the national title game four of the last five years. Richmond’s national championship in 2008 and Villanova’s 2009 title are the most recent championships for the league. In 2004, James Madison claimed the national championship with a 31-21 triumph over Montana, becoming the first team to reach the title game by winning three road playoff contests since the field expanded to 16 teams in 1986. Delaware rolled past Colgate 40-0 to capture the national championship in 2003, becoming the first team to ever post a shutout in the title game. No other conference has had two different teams win national titles in back-to-back years and CAA Football has done it twice (2003-04 & 2008-09). Massachusetts earned a national championship in 1998, beating perennial power Georgia Southern, 55-43. CAA Football boasts a total of 22 individual accolades accumulated by standouts from the league. UNH quarterback Ricky Santos (2006), William and Mary quarterback Lang Campbell (2004), Villanova running back Brian Westbrook (2001), Villanova wide receiver Brian Finneran (1997), UNH running back Jerry Azumah (1998) and Towson running back Dave Meggett (1988) all have won the prestigious Walter Payton Award under the league banner. James Madison linebacker Derrick Lloyd (2001) and defensive lineman Arthur Moats (2009) each received the Buck Buchanan Award prior to Evans’ honor in 2011. UNH’s Sean McDonnell (2005), James Madison’s Mickey Matthews (1999 & 2008), Villanova’s Andy Talley (1997) and Boston University’s Dan Allen (1993) were Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year Award winners from the league before Ambrose won the award in 2011. Delaware’s K.C. Keeler (2010), Richmond’s Mike London (2008), Matthews (2004), Massachusetts’ Mark Whipple (1998) and Talley (1997 & 2009) have garnered the American Football Coaches Association National Coach of the Year honor. CAA Football has had 100 players drafted by NFL franchises dating back to 1948. A total of 26 players have been selected in the draft over the last 10 years, including the league’s secondhighest draft pick ever -- former Delaware quarterback Joe Flacco (18th overall to the Baltimore Ravens in 2008). The league has also excelled in graduating student-athletes as 10 programs have earned NCAA Public Recognition Awards over the last three years for ranking among the Top 10 percent of the FCS in the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rating system. The CAA Football geographic footprint will encompass much of the East Coast during the 2012 season with schools located from Maine to Georgia. This season’s members include Delaware, Georgia State, James Madison, Maine, New Hampshire, Old Dominion, Rhode Island, Richmond, Towson, Villanova and William and Mary. While CAA Football officially began March 1, 2007, its roots date back more than 60 years. On December 3, 1946, the Code of the Yankee Conference went into effect. Established as an all-sports conference for the New England land grant colleges, the six charter members included Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. Upon the formation of Division I-AA football in 1978, the league disbanded all sports except football. Delaware and Richmond were admitted to the conference in 1986, Villanova was added in 1988 and James Madison, Northeastern and William and Mary joined the league in 1993. The Atlantic 10 assumed operation control of the conference from 1997-2006, with Hofstra becoming part of the league in 2001 and Towson joining the group in 2004.

UNH FOOTBALL - NATION-LEADING 8 STRAIGHTNCAAAPPEARANCES

PRESIDENT

THE ADMINISTRATION

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

THE ADMINISTRATION

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

The 2012-13 academic year marks the 13th season Marty Scarano has served as the Director of Athletics at the University of New Hampshire. During his tenure, Scarano has heightened national exposure for UNH athletics with academics, facility renovations and programmatic advancement being top priorities. His many accomplishments played a key role in UNH being named one of the Top 20 Athletic Departments in the Country in U.S. News and World Report college athletics rankings. With a Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of 89 percent among its student-athletes in 2011-12, UNH ranked third in the America East Conference and fourth in the Colonial Athletic Association. The men’s soccer, women’s cross country/track, gymnastics, women’s ski, and volleyball teams all posted perfect 100 percent GSRs while five additional programs tallied scores of 90 or above. The NCAA honored four Wildcat teams for multi-year Academic Progress Rates (APRs) in the top 10 percent of all teams in their respective sports. The Wildcat men’s ice hockey team and gymnastics both recorded perfect APRs of 1,000, while the men’s outdoor track & field team tallied 997 points and women’s indoor track & field notched 995. In 2012, the football program garnered its second-consecutive Academic Progress Rate Award for the Colonial Athletic Association. UNH became one of only five FCS programs in the nation to earn the title for a second straight year and the only FCS team in the country to both reach the postseason and capture an APR award in back-to-back seasons. UNH finished third in the America East Academic Cup for its third consecutive top-three finish, achieving a 3.14 cumulative grade-point average. The Wildcats had the highest number of honorees on the 2011 America East Fall Academic Honor Roll and the highest percentage of student-athletes on the 2011-12 America East Winter/Spring Academic Honor Roll. In the fall, 52 student-athletes were named to the America East Commissioner’s Honor Roll for achieving a GPA mark of 3.5 or higher while 76 student-athletes accomplished the feat on the winter/spring honor roll. Scarano has focused on moving UNH athletics into the collegiate national arena. To accomplish that goal, the University has taken on the task of hosting major NCAA championships. The Wildcat athletic department has played host to highly successful NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Northeast Regionals at the Verizon Wireless Arena (Manchester, N.H.) in 2004, 2007, 2009 and 2011 and will host again in 2013. UNH has also had the opportunity to host two NCAA Women’s Ice Hockey Frozen Fours at the Whittemore Center in 2002 and 2005. In addition, UNH successfully hosted the 2007 NCAA Skiing Championships in Washington Valley as well as the 2005 NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Northeast Regional at the Whittemore Center Arena. The women’s hockey team also played in the first outdoor game in the history of NCAA women’s hockey in 2010 at the Sun Life Frozen Fenway game against Northeastern while the men’s squad played in the 2012 Sun Life Frozen Fenway game against Maine. Football also competed in Colonial Clash games at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. in 2010 and 2011 against UMass. During the Scarano Era, UNH teams have made 40 NCAA postseason appearances and have captured 11 conference titles. The football program has qualified for the NCAA FCS postseason for a nation-leading eight consecutive seasons, advancing to the quarterfinals six times during the streak. Additionally, 24 coaches have won 63 Coach of the Year awards during Scarano’s tenure, ranging from conference coach of the year to New England and Northeast Regional Coach of the Year honors. Furthermore, head football coach Sean McDonnell garnered the Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year by The Sports Network in 2005 after a stellar 11-2 campaign. There have been over $9 million in capitol improvements since Scarano’s hiring in the summer of 2000. Recently, a new scoreboard was put in at Cowell Stadium while the football locker room received a facelift as part of the most recent renovation phase. Changes to the locker room included a new lighting system while a 55-inch flat-screen TV and Fathead-designed murals featuring former players and UNH historic moments were added to the walls. As part of a $650,000 renovation project in the summer of 2011, the field turf at Bremner Field was replaced with a new state-of-the-art surface used by many varsity teams and for student recreational activities. In the fall of 2008, the Paul Sweet Oval renovation was completed to include new surfaces, lighting, painting, infrastructure upgrades and the replacement of windows that existed in the original architecture. The total cost of the project exceeded $500,000. In the summer of 2007, the Cowell Stadium grass field was replaced with a $1 million Field Turf synthetic surface. Additionally in 2007, a complete renovation of Lundholm Gymnasium was undertaken. The $600,000 overhaul included a new state-of-the-art bleacher system, new scoreboards, competition baskets and other aesthetic enhancements. In 2007, Scarano was named the All-American Football Foundation Athletic Director of the Year for FCS football in the Northeast region. Scarano was also awarded the National Association of College Directors of Athletics (NACDA) AD of the Year for the FCS. Scarano has also been an active member in the leadership of UNH’s three major conferences and was the chair of the executive committees for Atlantic 10 football, Hockey East and America East from 2003 to 2007. He also served as chair of the NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Committee in 2005-06 and 2006-07 and is currently on the America East Executive Council. Most recently, Scarano was a member of the Hockey East Restructuring team that successfully recruited Notre Dame and the University of Connecticut to the conference. Outside of athletics, Scarano is in his 10th year on the Board of Corporators at Canterbury Shaker Village, a non-profit museum located in Canterbury, N.H. Before arriving at UNH, Scarano held the position of Athletics Director at Colorado College from July 1996 through June 2000. During his tenure, Colorado College was ranked among the top 20 Division III programs in the Sears Cup national standings and produced several AllAmericans, all-academic award winners and NCAA post-graduate scholarship recipients. Prior to his stay in Colorado Springs, Scarano worked for 13 years at Colgate University, where he served as assistant director of athletics, director of physical education, associate director, and senior associate director. Scarano, a native of Pittsburgh, Pa., is a 1978 graduate of Penn State University, where he started his athletic career as assistant ticket manager and the athletics events manager from 1980-83. Scarano holds a master’s degree in Environmental History from Colgate. He and his wife, Cydney, have three children, Lyndon, Kyle, a sophomore at UNH, and Corey.

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING

Paul Chapman is in his 11th year as the director of strength and conditioning at the University of New Hampshire and John Ciani is in the midst of his 11th year with the UNH athletic department. After four years as an assistant coach in the University’s strength and conditioning office, Ciani was promoted to the position of Associate Director of Strength and Conditioning in 2006. Chapman and Ciani helped coordinate the building of the state-of-the-art Jerry Azumah Performance Center and both have been key in guiding UNH student-athletes to NCAA appearances in both women’s and men’s ice hockey, football, gymnastics, Paul John women’s volleyball, women’s lacrosse, skiing and track and field. Chapman is a member of the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association (strength and conditioning coach Chapman Ciani certified), USA Weightlifting (certified level 1 coach), the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and he was the state director of the National Strength and Conditioning Association in North Dakota from 1991-95. In 2005, he earned the title of Master Strength and Conditioning Coach from the CSCCA. He has also authored four publications related to strength and conditioning and has trained and consulted several NFL, CFL and NHL athletes, and prospective athletes preparing for all-star games, bowl games and pre-draft testing. Prior to UNH, Chapman was the director of strength and conditioning for the University of North Dakota from 1992-2001 and served there on an interim basis during the 1991-92 season. His efforts were an integral part of a winning tradition at UND, as the football team was the Division II national champions in 2001, the men’s ice hockey team won a Division I national title in 1997 and 2000 and the women’s basketball team was the Division II national champion in 1997, 1998 and 1999. Chapman is a 1990 graduate of Dickinson State University in North Dakota with a B.S. degree in Biology. He then went on to earn at M.S. in Exercise Science from North Dakota in 1994. An outstanding college athlete, Chapman was inducted into the Dickinson State Athletic Hall of Fame for his efforts on the football field. He was a two-time AllAmerica First Team selection as well as an All-America Second Team honoree in his four-year playing career. Upon graduation, he was a fourth-round draft choice of the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the Canadian Football League, where he played for two seasons. Ciani is very passionate about his commitment to strength and conditioning. He has taken his wide range of experiences to come up with a distinct sport-specific training philosophy. In conjunction with the coaching staff, Ciani develops individualized training programs depending on the athlete’s initial evaluation, experience level and current athletic ability. Under Ciani’s program, improvement is not based on the weight on the bar, but rather how injury resistant the student-athlete is and his/her athletic performance. Strength and conditioning programs designed by Ciani utilize all facets of training, from conventional strength training and Olympic Weightlifting to simple conditioning and sport-specific metabolic runs that enhance the athlete’s abilities during competition. No single training style dominates the program; Ciani uses a combination of all training techniques for the total development of the student-athlete. Ciani, a native of the San Diego, Calif. area, came to UNH after a stint as assistant strength coach at the University of North Dakota. During his tenure at UND, Ciani worked primarily with the 2001 Division II national championship football team, women’s volleyball and men’s basketball teams. In 2000, he began his career at Long Beach State as a graduate assistant working with the perennial national power women’s volleyball team, where he trained many All-American and national team level volleyball players, including Misty May. Ciani received his B.A. degree in Psychology from Long Beach State and attended graduate school at both Long Beach State and the University of North Dakota.

UNH FOOTBALL - NATION-LEADING 8 STRAIGHTNCAAAPPEARANCES

JERRY AZUMAH PERFORMANCE CENTER

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

FOOTBALL FACILITIES

Cowell Stadium/Mooradian Field

The home of Wildcat football for the past 76 years is historic Cowell Stadium, located at the west end of the UNH campus in Durham. Thanks to a generous donation by the late Ed Fish, the field had a facelift in the form of a brand new FieldTurf surface, which was installed prior to the start of the 2007 season. Known as Alumni Field until 1952, the stadium was made possible by contributions of the UNH Alumni and was the first project of the Alumni Fund in the history of the University. Dedicated as a part of the Lewis Fields on Oct. 10, 1936, the stadium replaced what is now Memorial Field, the current home for the women’s lacrosse and field hockey teams. The largest crowd for a football game in Cowell Stadium occured on Nov. 12, 1977, when 20,000 watched the Wildcats fall to UMass, 19-6, in a showdown for the Yankee Conference crown. The stadium is named for the former Wildcat athletics director and football coach, William H. “Butch” Cowell, who came to Durham from the Haskell Institute in 1915 and proceeded to change the face of athletics at the University. Over the first 22 years of intercollegiate football, New Hampshire managed just 23 victories. At the end of his 22-year coaching career (1915-36), Cowell had amassed an 84-67-22 mark, including stunning upsets over Army, Holy Cross and Brown. A founder of the American Football Coaches Association, Cowell served as the organization’s president in 1925 and, until his death, served as the AFCA’s permanent secretary-treasurer (1925-40). On Oct.18, 1952, at the Homecoming game versus Springfield College, the stadium was rededicated in Cowell’s honor during halftime ceremonies. UNH honored former athletics director Andy Mooradian by dedicating the playing field in his name during halftime ceremonies on Homecoming (1996). Mooradian was involved with Wildcat athletics for 45 years as a player, coach and administrator. He served as UNH’s athletics director from 1966-86, guiding the program from the NCAA II level to Division I during his tenure. A national leader on the intercollegiate athletic scene, Mooradian was president of NACDA, the ECAC and the Yankee Conference and was a member of several prominent NCAA committees.

The James H. “Red” Hayes Locker Room Solely for the use of the football players and staff is the James H. “Red” Hayes Football Locker Room, located on the bottom level of the Field House adjacent to Cowell Stadium. Constructed in 1988, the locker room was a gift of Red Hayes (‘32), a former Wildcat player under legendary coach William Cowell, who went on to a successful business career and gave distinguished service to the State of New Hampshire. The locker room features 110 separate lockers that accommodate each player’s equipment and uniform, as well as a players’ lounge adjacent to the locker area. Locker room renovations during the summer of 2012 led to the installation of a new lighting system, the addition of a 55-inch flat screen TV and Fathead-designed murals (pictured right) featuring historical Wildcat moments. The Brice-Cowell Musket (below), which goes to the winner of the annual UNH-Maine gridiron battle, resides on the wall of the locker room. A locker memorial for Todd Walker was added in honor of the former Wildcat who suffered an untimely and heroic death in March 2011 while protecting a female friend.

UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

The University of New Hampshire was originally founded as a land-grant college whose mission was to shape and educate citizenry among the state’s farmers, business people and engineers. Today, the University is a land-, sea-, and space-grant university serving a growing undergraduate student body of about 11,942 and a graduate population of 2,257 in addition to 621 full-time faculty members, 86% of which have earned their doctorate degree. The University has grown into a top public research university occupying 2,600 acres of classic living and learning space while still maintaining the look and feel of a New England liberal arts college with a faculty dedicated to teaching. UNH’s student to faculty ratio registers at 18:1 with 85% of its classes having 50 students or less. HISTORY As one of the most prestigious institutions in the Northeast, the University of New Hampshire has always been recognized as a leader in education and research, spanning all fields of study and uniting them through interdisciplinary programs, labs, farms, theatres, research centers and libraries. Founded in 1866 as the New Hampshire College of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts, UNH was among the early state institutions of higher education whose formation was made possible by federal government land grants. The purpose for the grants was to establish colleges that would serve the sons and daughters of farming and laboring families. New Hampshire College was originally situated in Hanover, N.H. Here it was in connection with Dartmouth College before moving to Durham in 1893 after Benjamin Thompson bequeathed land and money to further the development of the college. The state legislature then granted its new charter as the University of New Hampshire in 1923. The University hosts 733 international students from more than 45 countries and boasts a population of students from all 50 states. Along with over 100 majors offered, UNH encompasses seven schools and colleges that undergraduates can choose from: the College of Liberal Arts, College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, School of Health and Human Services, College of Life Sciences and Agricultures, Whittemore School of Business and Economics, and the Thompson School

UNH also graduates students who attend top-notch graduate schools, including Law School at Harvard and Cornell, Engineering at Stanford, and Medical School at Dartmouth, Johns Hopkins and Harvard. CAMPUS In the last few years, several of the athletic facilities have received major upgrades and improvements. In September of 2001, the University completed a new $2.15 million track and field facility. The Jerry Azumah Performance Center, the strength and conditioning facility located in the UNH Field House, was dedicated on July 8, 2003. UNH athletics has also added two $1.5 million outdoor artificial fields, Memorial Field and Bremner Field. Lundholm Gymnasium has received some major overhauls, including a new playing surface, new lights, new sound system, new bleacher system, new backboards and new scoreboards. The Paul Sweet Oval has been completely renovated to include new surfaces, lighting, painting, infrastructure upgrades and the replacement of windows that existed in the original architecture. In addition to the incredible improvements of its athletic facilities, the University has upgraded and renovated a large part of its academic campus as well. The latest addition to the expanding campus is the Paul College of Business and Economics, a 115,000 square foot academic building located on Garrison Avenue. Slated for completion in January 2013, the building will feature 16 technology-rich classrooms, totaling 950 new instructional seats. There will also be 25 high-tech groups study rooms along with a two-story “Great Hall” for informal and special events. Outside of the facility, there will be a courtyard for outdoor activities and events. The building will be a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold facility, maintaining the University’s commitment to sustainable programs and facilities. The University broke ground on the project in May 2011. Thompson Hall, one of the standing historical landmarks of the University, has been beautifully refurbished and restored. The University also completed a $52 million renovation of Kingsbury Hall, adding 6,000 square feet of student project space for students in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, as well as a $4.5 million revamp of Hewitt Hall to expand the School of Health and Human Services. In addition, the new 120,000 square foot Biological Sciences Building, Rudman Hall and the Spaulding Life Sciences Renovation project now provide state-of-the-art teaching and researching laboratories. The University also spent $15 million to complete Morse Hall, a science and engineering building as well as $8.2 million to modernize the Memorial Union Building. This revision to the existing student union building consisted of several upgrades including top kitchen and dining facilities, two theaters, student mailboxes, lounges and meeting rooms, as well as additional retail spaces such as the University Bookstore. The University has also completed construction of the new dining facility on Main Street, Holloway Commons, as well as the renovation of the Dimond Library.
