UNH football makes it 14 straight FCS playoff bids, good for longest in the nation

The University of New Hampshire's streak now stands at 14.

Despite a 15-0 loss at Albany on Saturday that clouded their playoff hopes, the Wildcats' emotions turned 180 degrees on Sunday when they were awarded an at-large berth in the upcoming NCAA FCS playoffs. UNH earned a home game, to boot, and will play Central Connecticut State University on Saturday at 2 p.m. ET at Wildcat Stadium.

The NCAA appearance will be UNH's 14th straight, which is the longest current streak in the nation. It marks the Wildcats' 18th in program history.

UNH, ranked 21st nationally in the latest FCS poll, is 7-4 overall and finished 5-3 in the Colonial Athletic Association. UNH was one of four clubs from the conference to be selected; the other three — No. 1 overall seed James Madison (8-0, 11-0 overall), Stony Brook (7-1, 9-2 overall) and Elon (6-2, 8-3) — finished above UNH in the league standings.

No. 21 'Cats Shut Out CCSU, 14-0, Advance to NCAA 2nd Round
UNH to battle No. 4 Central Arkansas on Dec. 2 (3 p.m. ET, ESPN3)

...DURHAM, N.H. – Sophomore linebacker Quinlen Dean (Greenbelt, Md.) and junior linebacker Jared Kuehl (Plymouth, N.H.) led No. 21 New Hampshire to a 14-0 triumph over Central Connecticut State University on Saturday afternoon in a first-round game in the NCAA Division I FCS Championship tournament in Wildcat Stadium.

The Wildcats improved their record to 8-4 and advance to a second-round game at Central Arkansas next Saturday at 3 p.m. (Eastern time). Central Arkansas is the No. 4 seed in the tournament and had a first-round bye. Central Connecticut closes its season at 8-4.

Dean had 12 tackles, three of them for a loss, and an interception. Kuehl had seven tackles and also came up with two turnovers, one an interception and the other a fumble recovery.

It was UNH's first win by shutout since a 17-0 defeat of Richmond on Oct. 9, 2010.

The Wildcats had not shut out an opponent by a 14-0 score since a game on Oct. 21, 1950 against Springfield.
