Wow, what a game! UMass, missing a ton of starters, beat the #4 team in a pulsating game under the lights at McGuirk.
The UMass defense was immense. They kept pounding on Tolman and he finally threw the deciding interception. The defense also shut down the Wildcat rushing attack.
Even the first UNH score was close. Two UMass defenders went for the interception and it went right through their hands. After that, the UMass defense battled UNH on every play.
With Tony Nelson out again, Jonathan Hernandez was a step away during the first half of breaking a long run. Finally he dominated in the fourth quarter. Hernandez was named the winer of the Bill Knight MVP Trophy.
A great, gutsy win by a depleted UMass squad.
