UNH Football Heads Into Playoffs With Number One Seed

Via UNH Wildcats website

The University of New Hampshire football team is heading into the playoffs as the number one seed.

UNH clinched the Colonial Athletic Association title this weekend, defeating the University of Maine on Saturday, 20-12.

The title, the school’s first since 1994, earned UNH an automatic bid into the NCAA Division 1 FCS Football Championship.

UNH was awarded the number one seed on Sunday, giving the team a first-round bye. UNH will host either Fordham or Sacred Heart at Cowell Stadium in Durham on Saturday, Dec. 6.

UNH finished the season 10-1, losing its first game, then winning ten straight.
