We break down the Central Connecticut State game – and we give our fearless prediction, below the flip.
Thinking of openers and CCSU this week made me think of Lehigh’s 2013 season.
That was an epic overtime game, where Lehigh overcame a 20 point 4th quarter deficit to overcome the Blue Devils in double overtime 51-44.
While most probably remember the record-breaking receiving day from WR Lee Kurfis, I dug deeper.

Offseasons are long after season-ending losses to Lafayette, but it seems like no game after a Lafayette loss has been as anticipated as this one.
All offseason – and I’ve been as guilty of this as anyone – there’s always been question for the Mountain Hawk football team concerning a football game played last November:
“Did you actually watch a tape the 150th Rivalry game in Yankee Stadium last November?
“What was your reaction? Did you toss the DVD out the window, or set it on fire?”
“Do you think about that loss every day, or simply once a week?”
This Friday up at New Britain, Lehigh football players and their fans will finally have something to talk about that doesn’t involve that infernal game in the Bronx last November.
Oddly enough, they are facing a team that comes from a similar place. The Central Connecticut State Blue Devils, 3-9 last season and in their second season under head coach Pete Rossamondo, wants to erase the memory of a six-game slide that doomed their 2014 season.
The Pete Rossomando era couldn’t have started much better for Central Connecticut State fans in 2014.
Not many outsiders gave the Blue Devils much of a chance when they made the trip to Johnny Unitas stadium to take on the No. 7 team in the nation, Towson.
Sure, they had RB Rob Holloman, an all-purpose everything back that would almost certainly be invited to an NFL camp (he was), but certainly that wasn’t enough to run with the Tigers, right?
Behind a career game by QB Nick SanGiacomo, a transfer from Tulane, CCSU did indeed run with the Tigers, upsetting Towson 31-27 and seemingly announcing that the Blue Devils were going to be in stiff competition for the NEC title and a bid to the FCS playoffs.
Unfortunately, that’s not how things turned out for the Blue Devils.
