Makes sense that UNH would host Colgate. NCAA likes regional match-ups and UNH beat Colgate at Colgate. Both teams are 7-4 and have finished stronger than they started. UNH should host.

Colgate has done poorly against UNH over the past 20 years. I like that this is the team Colgate has to play in the playoffs. It's time for Colgate to grow up and be everything they can be. There's no better team to do this against than UNH.

In terms of stats, UNH has given up 45 more yards on D than they have on O. Can't imagine many teams in the playoffs give up that many more yards than they gain (especially if they aren't autobids). Still, the QB Colgate saw the first half of the game is back--and healthy. A lot of UNH's toughest times this season came when he was hurt or hobbled.

In the first game against UNH, Colgate had drives to the UNH 22, 18, 14, 17, 35, and 9 without getting any points. Colgate also had two 50 or so yards plays called back. Colgate has been very good in the red zone over the second half of the season. If Colgate converts, they can certainly win.

I like that Colgate has introduced the option, empty backfield, and flanker screen to the offense. These plays all help to get 15 or 29 the ball in space. I like they they have the confidence to run these plays at any point of the game--that's a huge difference than the past few years. Even letting 6 throw the ball on third down when 15 was hurt against Lehigh was big (and he threw a really nice ball). Good to see the position gaining this level of trust.

UNH did a very good job of getting the corner against Colgate. Think having 2 playing outside linebacker will help. Need to set a hard edge on D. Defensive play in general has gotten better. Wonder if Colgate goes small at the other OLB.

It's a great opportunity for these guys. Hope they are excited and attack on both sides of the ball.

Go 'gate!
