New England D3 Football Teams Of 2018

NS Teams Of 2018

By NoontimeSports | @NoontimeSports 

Earlier this week, SB Nation posted its college football ‘Teams of 2018 for all 50 states,’ including six teams that represented our New England region.

MIT was tabbed the team of the year from Massachusetts, while Salve Regina represented Rhode Island and Middlebury College secured the nod for Vermont.

This particular post had us thinking who would we pick as our 2018 New England D3 Football Teams of the Year?

Well, we gave it some thought and have provided the answers below!

Let us know what you think by posting a comment or sending us a tweet to @NoontimeSports or @Noontime_FB. 


Connecticut Team of the Year: Trinity College. Once again, the Bantams captured the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) crown with an 8-1 record. They should once again be the team to beat next fall.

Connecticut Honorable Mentions: Coast Guard Academy and Western Connecticut. 

Maine Team of the Year: Husson University. In his final years with the Eagles, coach Gabby Price guided the Green and Gold to an Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) crown, as well as a second-straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

Maine Honorable Mentions: Colby College. 

Massachusetts Team of the Year: MIT. In his first year as head coach, Brian Bubna guided the Engineers to their first-ever New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) title, as well as an appearance in the NCAA Tournament. The Engineers finished its 2018 campaign 9-1 and 6-1 in league play.

Massachusetts Honorable Mentions: Amherst College, Bridgewater State, Endicott College, Framingham State, Springfield College, Tufts University and Western New England. 

New Hampshire Team of the Year: Plymouth State. The Panthers are the lone New England D3 team in the Granite State, so they automatically receive our special honor. Plymouth State concluded its past campaign 6-4 overall and 5-3 in the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC). Their signature win of the 2018 season came on a rainy day in Framingham last October.

Rhode Island Team of the Year: Salve Regina. Similar to Plymouth State, Salve Regina is the lone D3 team in the Ocean State, so they get the nod from us as well like they did from SB Nation. Coach Kevin Gilmartin‘s unit overcame a 2-3 start to finish the 2018 season with a 7-4 record. They secured a spot in one of the three New England Bowl games following an exciting win in November over Endicott College.

Vermont Team of the Year: Middlebury College. The Panthers secured the nod from SB Nation and now us, too, after for posting the best record among all three teams in the Green Mountain State. Their biggest win from 2018 came last October when Will Jernigan led the Blue and White to a 21-10 win at Williams College.

Vermont Honorable Mention: Norwich University.

D3 Hoops: 10 Games To Watch (Jan. 25-27)

NS 10 GAMES TO WATCH HOOPS

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeHoops 

Welcome to Friday – let’s go!

In honor of a new weekend – well, the final weekend of January, to be exact – it is time to dish out a brand new edition of Noontime’s 10 Games to Watch, including our picks, too.

Last week, we struggled. We picked four of ten games correctly, so now our overall record is 39-21. Let’s see if we can bounce back this week!


Wesleyan University at Bates College (MBB) | Friday, January 25th at 7 p.m.: The Cardinals appear to be soaring in the right direction, which may not bode well for the ‘cats of Lewiston, Maine. Bates has certainly provided challenges to its recent opponents, but we think the Cardinals will make a few big plays down the stretch to secure an important road win. PREDICTION: Wesleyan University 

Clark University at Wheaton College (WBB) | Saturday, January 26th at 1 p.m.: If the Cougars are going to keep their postseason hopes alive, they must score some late-season wins, including this one against the Lyons. Clark edged Wheaton earlier this month by a score of 52-50. PREDICTION: Clark University 

Endicott College at Curry College (WBB) | Saturday, January 26th at 1 p.m.: Despite falling to Salve Regina earlier this month, the Gulls remain the team to beat in their conference. Endicott ran away from Curry in its initial meeting in Beverly and should certainly find a way past the Colonels in Milton. PREDICTION: Endicott College 

Norwich University at Suffolk University (MBB) | Saturday, January 26th at 2 p.m.: The Rams suffered their first home loss of the season earlier this week against the Pride of Regis College. On Thursday, their game against Saint Joseph’s (Conn.) was postponed, so you know this group will be eager to return to action on Saturday with hopes of returning to the win column. PREDICTION: Suffolk University 

Emerson College at MIT (MBB)| Saturday, January 26th at 2 p.m.: The Lions have certainly provided challenges for its conference foes this month, but the Engineers have a lot of momentum on their side since falling to Emerson earlier this month. Their recent overtime win against Babson has us thinking they will find a way to beat the Purple and Gold on Saturday. PREDICTION: MIT 

Amherst College at Bowdoin College (WBB) | Saturday, January 26th at 3 p.m.: The Polar Bears remain the top team in New England, but can solidify their spot atop the rankings with a win over the Mammoths. Amherst beat Bowdoin last year in the national championship, so you know this is a game the Polar Bears have been eager to play since last March. PREDICTION: Bowdoin College 

WPI at Wheaton College (MBB) | Saturday, January 26th at 3 p.m.: The Engineers seem to be in a groove similar to earlier this season. WPI has rebounded from back-to-back losses earlier this month with a five-game winning streak. We expect that winning streak to continue on Saturday in Norton, Massachusetts. PREDICTION: WPI 

Western New England at Univ of New England (MBB) | Saturday, January 26th at 3 p.m.: When these two teams last met, they combined for 226 points. Both teams can put up some points, so expect more fireworks on Saturday. PREDICTION: WNE 

Albertus Magnus at Emmanuel College (WBB) | Saturday, January 26th at 3 p.m.: Both teams enter this important conference clash with winning streaks – Emmanuel has won six-straight, while Albertus Magnus has captured its last four contests. The Saints relied on its defense in its last outing to beat Norwich and will need that unit to step-up against a Falcons squad that is averaging 82.5 points per game. PREDICTION: Emmanuel College 

Middlebury College at Trinity College (WBB) | Sunday, January 27th at 2 p.m.: The Panthers have already scored a road in Connecticut this month, but can they make it two in January? Trinity appears to have some serious momentum heading into this important conference clash. PREDICTION: Trinity College
