UMass adds Holy Cross and Boston College for 2007

Wow! Big doin's from the UMass Athletic Dept. UMass has added a two year series with long time rival Holy Cross and a meeting with Boston College.

The Athletic Dept 's article is here .

From that article:

"2007 UMass NON-CONFERENCE Football Schedule Day Date Opponent Saturday September 1 HOLY CROSS McGuirk Stadium Saturday September 8 at Colgate Hamilton, N.Y. Saturday September 29 at Boston College Chestnut Hill, Mass."

Kudos to AD John McCutcheon! Two in-state game save travel money and renew old rivals. This is excellent news!

Update Tuesday 08/08/06: The Springfield Republican has an article about the OOC for the next two years.
