Gonna be a great game.

I signed up to Sling TV for $25.00 a month so I can watch the game tomorrow on ESPN3 from here in a Tampa Bay. I plan on canceling in a month but I’m hoping I’ll be able to watch at least TWO playoff games.

Albany favored by 6 1/2 is a reasonable line, given the overall strength of the CAA compared to the NEC. But our journey will not end on the banks of the Hudson.

Yep. Actually, dropped to Albany -3 at 5dimes.eu

That means the "smart money" is on CCSU. :)

Watching Monmouth/HC to kill time. Too many empty seats for the Hawks considering the game. I guess we’re not the only ones with that issue.

They have a nice grandstand on the home side and nice big videoboard, but it feels like playing in an open pasture in New Jersey.

Arute can have a nice cozy feel compared to Kessler.

It’s going to be our demise. If you can’t execute a field goal from the three...

Agreed!

We had too much momentum to not for for it on 4th and goal from the 3 yard line. Kicking bites us again.

Then Defense steps up and forces UAlbany to a 3 and out.

Winchester and Co. respond witha great drive and TD.
