Friday--November 2nd, 2012

Matty V. says UMass looks to end it's losing streak against the Northern Illinois Huskies.

The Boston Globe says the UMass offense looks to get going earlier.

The UMass Daily Collegian reports the UMass defense is stacked up against another mobile QB.

The Worcester Telegram has a story about UMass walk-on Rob O'Connor.

CBS Boston has a story about Minutemen freshmen. One of my impressions of the Vanderbilt game was that for the first time this year, morale cracked in the third quarter at Vandy. To the players credit, everybody picked it back up in the forth quarter. UMass played mostly the second string guys the last couple of series and the regulars were not sitting on the bench staring at the ground, they were on their feet, watching the game and supporting the subs.
