They were the last two teams picked in the preseason coaches’ poll, but midway through the #NECFB schedule and they are both in title contention.
In fact, Central Connecticut is in a three-way tie for first place. The Blue Devils (2-1), who have defeated two of the top-three teams from that aforementioned preseason poll, welcome Robert Morris (1-2) to Arute Field for the “NECFB on ESPN3” Game of the Week on October 31. The game will kick off at 12:00 pm ET.
Both teams feature second-year head coaches – CCSU (Pete Rossomando), Robert Morris (John Banaszak).
RMU captured last year’s meeting in Moon, scoring 18 unanswered points to pull out a 27-24 victory.
Dave Popkin will be on the call Saturday along with NFL coaching veteran Kevin Gilbride. John Cabral will man the sidelines.
