New Hampshire will look to end a two-game losing streak against Vermont when the two meet in the 65th annual Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl on Saturday, Aug. 4, at 5:30 p.m. at Castleton University in Castleton, Vt.
Vermont defeated New Hampshire, 50-2, in 2016 - ending New Hampshire's 15-game winning streak in the game - and followed up with a 19-0 win over the Granite State last year.
A rule was put in place in 2015 that prevents players from participating in both the CHaD New Hampshire East/West All-Star game and the Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl. Both exhibitions are for graduating seniors.
This year marks the third straight in which the game has been played in Castleton, Vt. New Hampshire won the last time the game was played in the Granite State - a 42-6 triumph in 2014 at Dartmouth's Memorial Field in Hanover.
Winnisquam of Tilton head coach Patrick Riberdy will lead New Hampshire this year alongside assistants Rod McQuarrie, Derek Hunt, William Patten, Tim Snow, Angelo Glover and Austin Hunt.
