UMaine, Husson Set For Home Finale
The University of Maine and Husson University football teams will host late season games today with the Bears playing Elon and the Eagles taking on Mt. Ida.For UMaine this will be their final home game of the season and senior day where 18 seniors will be honored for their contributions to the team.
This will be just the second meeting between the Bears and Phoenix with the Maine taking last years game 24-17. The Bears will be looking to get back in the win column after dropping their last 2 games in which they scored a combined 10 points.
Defense continues to be a strength of the team as they are second in the conference against the rush allowing an average of just 118 yards per game.
Husson will be playing its regular season finale as they take on the Mt. Ida Mustangs. Gabby Price's Eagles will be trying for their 7th win of the season after falling for just the second time this year a week ago at Norwich.
With their hopes of making the NCAA tournament taken away, the Eagles can still get to post season with an ECAC bowl game. Husson is one of 26 teams that have a shot at 12 available spots.
They will be playing without starting quarterback Joe Seccareccia who broke his foot last week and needs surgery. Freshman QB Corey Brandon will take his spot in the lineup after throwing a touchdown pass in relief of Seccareccia a week ago.
Husson won last years meeting at Mt. Ida 41-21 and snapped a 5-game losing streak against the Mustangs.
