UNH has good history vs. Ga. Southern

...It was the start of something big for the Wildcats, who have been playoff regulars ever since with 13 straight postseason appearances, the longest active streak in what is now called the FCS.

UNH and Georgia Southern will meet again Saturday at 4 p.m. under very different circumstances. The matchup comes in Week 2 of the regular season, the Eagles moved up to the more challenging FBS level in 2014 and the game has been moved to Legion Field in Birmingham, Ala., because of the threat of Hurricane Irma.

“This is a better football team than the one we played that night, and the one we played that night was a good football team,” McDonnell said. “They’re bigger, they’re stronger and they’re more athletic than the team we played down there.”

The Wildcats will try to snap a seven-game losing streak against FBS opponents.

UNH football savors first 2-0 start in 8 years

...The Wildcats’ 22-12 win Saturday over Georgia Southern was their first over an FBS opponent since beating Ball State in 2009. The only other time the clubs met, UNH came away with its first postseason victory at the Division I-AA/FCS level.

The latest outcome wasn’t as epic as the 2004 game — which began a stretch of 13 straight playoff appearances — but it did represent the Wildcats’ first 2-0 start in eight years.

“I thought we went out and did the things we needed to do to win the football game,” coach Sean McDonnell said Monday morning during the weekly CAA teleconference. “It all started with tackling in open spaces and getting off blocks. The other thing we had to do was execute on offense. We told the kids it was extremely important that we don’t turn the ball over and they did a good job keeping it in our hands.”

Knight Throws Career-High Three TDs In 51-26 Loss at Holy Cross


WORCESTER, Mass. – Junior quarterback Trevor Knight (Amherst, N.H.) passed for 310 yards and a career-high three touchdowns but the No. 9 University of New Hampshire football team was defeated 51-26 by College of the Holy Cross at Fitton Field on Saturday afternoon.

Knight completed 26 of 45 passes with 3- and 6-yard TD passes to Neil O'Connor (Leominster, Mass.) and a 9-yard score to Rory Donovan (Canton, Mass.). Donovan finished with career highs in both receptions (11) and receiving yards (109). O'Connor had seven catches for 92 yards.

Redshirt freshman running back DeUnte Chatman (Houston, Texas), who entered the game in the fourth quarter, was UNH's top ground gainer with six carries for 107 yards, including a 64-yard TD.

Junior defensive end Jae'Wuan Horton (Stafford, Va.) recorded a career-high nine tackles, including two sacks, and sophomore linebacker Quinlen Dean (Greenbelt, Md.) also made a team-high nine stops to match his personal best.

Holy Cross' offense was led by Peter Pujals, who complete 21 of 39 passes for 367 yards and five TDs. Martin Dorsey was the top target with five catches for 165 yards and two TDs.

The Wildcats took a 7-0 lead on a six-play, 89-yard drive that was capped by a six-yard TD pass from Knight to O'Connor at 9:03.
On the scoring drive, Gray accounted for 54 yards on just two touches. On 1st-an-10 from the UNH 11, his career-long 36-yard reception advanced the ball near midfield. Gray's 18-yard scamper set up 1st-and-goal at the HC 6.
A.J. Wells kicked a 46-yard field goal attempt between the uprights to lift the Crusaders within 7-3 with 43 seconds remaining in the first quarter.
