what is the rationale for having Maine vs unh on opening weekend as opposed to the end?

Does anyone know who our 5th home game might be against? Bryant again?

So basically the only definites are the two FBS games and the last game home with SB.
We completed our home and away with Bryant so would think we would have another OOC that would be a home game with someone besides Bryant.
Next year, 2018, we go on the road to Yale.

I agree MJ, hell uv a way to open the season. Hope like heck it is a nite game!!!
We need to beat these guys.

Here is UNH article on playing us to open the season and the rest of their schedule.
Remember when we opened the new Alfond stadium and season with UNH, pretty much a sellout on a beautiful Sat. nite and we kicked their butts, think it was 1999 or so?

Won't be Bryant as they play UNH and we have done our home and home with them. Guessing it will be another NEC team or Patriot league team. Would love to play Holy Cross as I always wanted to attend a game at their "mimi bowl" right off of Interstate 290. They would be a tough opponent might want to stick with a NEC team although the day of the cupcake NEC teams are gone as well.

Other cool opponents would be at Dartmouth (cool stadium), at Columbia (good excuse to go to NYC), at Harvard (good excuse to go to Boston).

Don't forget we go to the Yale Bowl in 2018 after their upgrade, that should be awesome. Saw the NY Giants play there in the 60's as a youngstah.
Any Ivy league would be classy ;)
