Football Friday Notebook: UMass Dartmouth, WPI Unveil 2018 Schedules
By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports
Happy Friday, everyone! We hope you had a great Fourth of July and ready for the first Friday in July.
We’re a few weeks out from the start of another NFL season, which is exciting. Additionally, we are also closing in on the start of college and high school football, too – crazy, right?
Let’s kick-off the first weekend in July with some news from the gridiron world – have an awesome weekend, everyone and enjoy the cooler weather in New England!
Boston College and Syracuse University will square-off late this upcoming college football season. So, while we anxiously await that particular kick-off, check out an early outlook/preview of what Orange fans can expect when they face-off against the Eagles.
If you’re a New England Patriots fan, you probably know by now that wide receiver Julian Edelman saw his four game suspension upheld and will miss the first four games of the 2018 season against the Detroit Lions, Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins.
Yes, it is disappointing that Edelman won’t be on the first for the team’s first four games, but as Pats Pulpits‘ Matthew Rewinski writes, “Time to take the L and move on.”
The UMass Dartmouth football team recently unveiled its 2018 schedule, which features non-conference clashes against Alfred State and Delaware Valley. One week after hosting DelVal, the Corsairs will travel to Westfield State for its first MASCAC tilt of the season on Friday, September 14th.
Also announcing its 2018 slate was the WPI football team – Coach Chris Robertson shared the team’s upcoming schedule in a tweet on Tuesday. The Engineers begin its season with three-straight road contests, including a week two meeting with the RPI Engineers. RPI-WPI is always a game to watch or circle on the calendar.
Finally – just for fun! – Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was spotted recently tossing a 66-yard touchdown pass to a Minnesota high school football player. The video of the long heave was seen on the Moorhead Spud Football Twitter handle.
