Home cooking appeals to UNH
The Wildcats of the University of New Hampshire take great pleasure in the way they have turned Cowell Stadium, their soon-to-be-renovated facility with few frills, into a house of horrors for visiting teams in recent years.
Colgate, the defending Patriot League champion, which has lost its first two games, gets its latest chance in Cowell when it takes on UNH at noon today.
But UNH has its own nightmares of its last home game.
Sean McDonnell's team had won 10 straight games in Cowell — the place the Wildcats call "The Dungeon" — when Towson came to town for the last game of the regular season in November, Towson led 30-28 at halftime and scored the next 27 points on the way to a 64-35 crushing of the Wildcats.
UNH gets a shot at revenge when it plays its first Colonial Athletic Association game at Towson on Oct. 5.
The Wildcats have won 22 of their last 24 games at Cowell.
They dropped their opener at Central Michigan, 27-24, last Saturday and coupled with a pair of losses at the end of last season have now lost three straight games for the first time since October 2003.
Sophomore wide receiver Mike Detroia, senior defensive back Chris Houston, offensive lineman Sean Ryan, a senior out of Londonderry, and senior long-snapper Steve Collister are also sidelined with injuries.
That should open playing time for Dalton Crossan, a 5-foot-11 and 205-pound redshirt freshman who missed the first game with a foot injury. He's not 100 percent, but should be ready to go as a backup to junior Nico Steriti, McDonnell said.
