It will be a first for the Black Bears - the UMaine football team will play UMass this fall at historic Fenway Park.

The Fenway Sports Management group announced the UMaine game will be played on Saturday, November 11th with a gametime TBD.

The game will be part of a three game New England college series. Brown and Dartmouth will play at Fenway November 10th. Boston College plays UConn on November on November 18th.

"To be able to play a college football game at Fenway Park, where all the history and tradition is so rich, we could not be more excited about this opportunity for our program and fan base," said UMaine head coach Joe Harasymiak.

Ticket information will be released at a later date.

The UMaine hockey team is set to play UConn at Fenway Saturday afternoon as part of the Frozen Fenway event.

The last college football at Fenway was back in 2015 when Boston College played Notre Dame.
