Mass. College Football: 10 Games To Watch This Weekend
Another weekend of college football is set to commence tomorrow afternoon and below is 10 Games to Watch.
Harvard at Columbia: The Crimson needed a late field goal to defeat Dartmouth last weekend, but don’t expect that to be the case this weekend. Harvard, which enters the contest 6-1 overall, will look to earn its seventh win against a winless Columbia unit.
Boston College at New Mexico State: After an exciting win against Virginia Tech, the Eagles will look to build on their momentum this weekend against a 1-8 New Mexico squad.
Assumption at LIU Post: The Hounds will look to conclude their regular season with a victory against an offense that ranks fourth in the conference in yards per game (465.9). Assumption is 4-1 on the road this season, while LIU Post is 2-1 at home.
Bentley at New Haven: The Falcons will look to end their slate on a two-game winning streak as they travel to New Haven to face a Chargers squad that’s 1-2 in their last three games. Quarterback Danny Guadagnoli ranks second in the Northeast-10 Conference in passing yards per game (282.0) and fifth in touchdown passes (17).
Stonehill at Merrimack: The Skyhawks will look to conclude their regular season with a win against a talented offensive unit, which is led by quarterback Joe Clancy. A win for Stonehill could result in a home championship game next weekend.
So. Connecticut at AIC: As of now, the Yellow Jackets are expected to host Stonehill next weekend for the conference championship, but a loss to the Owls and a Skyhawks win could result in a trip to Easton. AIC’s offense ranks third in the conference in points (311).
Framingham State at Bridgewater State: The Bears haven’t defeated the Rams since 2009, a game they won in Bridgewater. Tomorrow’s key matchup will be BSU quarterback Mike McCarthy versus the Rams defense.
UMass Dartmouth at Fitchburg State: Both teams have been pleasant surprises this season, so expect a good battle between the Corsairs and Falcons. A win for Fitchburg would keep them above .500, while a victory for UMass Dartmouth snaps a two-game skid.
Western New England at Endicott: The Golden Bears, who have won two of their last three games, recorded 563 yards of total offense last weekend against Curry College. Endicott enters tomorrow’s contest on a five-game winning streak and remains undefeated in New England Football Conference play.
Amherst at Williams: Tomorrow’s matchup isn’t just the 128th meeting between these two schools, but also the final contest at Weston Field. Amherst won last season’s meeting, 23-20.
