High-flying Lehigh will be a test for UNH
Many college football teams will have played five games by the time Saturday is over.
The University of New Hampshire is a bit behind. The Wildcats did not play the first weekend of the season and then were off last week.
UNH must slow down Lehigh senior quarterback Brandon Bialkowski, who had not thrown a pass before this season, and his high-powered offense this afternoon.
Bialkowski has completed 84 of his 125 passes for 1,171 yards and has thrown nine touchdown passes and been intercepted four times.
The Mountain Hawks are also giving up 500.3 yards of offense a game.
The Wildcats get a few players back from injury, thanks in part to having last week off.
Andy Vailas, the junior quarterback out of Bedford and Bishop Guertin High School in Nashua, has completed 34 of his 51 passes (64.2 percent) for 369 yards and three touchdowns. He has thrown one interception.
