Matt Dougherty of the Sports Network has his weekly prognostication of this week's games (including UMass-Rhode Island) in Extra Point.
Rhode Island lost to Richmond 31-6 last week.
The Rams Athletic Director resigned October 12th after a long dispute with the school administration.
Richmond has an excellent defense. As you know, Rhody runs the spread option. They were missing their starting QB Derek Cassidy (ankle injury) and their backup QB John Butler also left the game with a shoulder injury. That left them running a true freshman QB. Both may be available for the UMass game.
This article from the Providence Journal talks about the UMass-Rhody game and UMass QB Liam Coen who's from North Providence. Rhode Island's coach Tim Stowers son played on the same high school team as Liam.
