Despite an overall disappointing year for the Stony Brook football team, homecoming weekend brought an explosive infusion of spirit with SBU’s dominant 27-14 win over the Richmond Spiders on Saturday, Oct. 23 at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium.
The Stony Brook football team snapped its four-game losing streak on Saturday afternoon at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium by beating the No. 14-ranked Delaware Blue Hens 34-17. Stony Brook came into the game at 1-5 (0-3 CAA), losing their last two games by a touchdown each.
It was the first time in program history that Stony Brook had ever lost to Rhode Island after winning its first seven contests against the Rams. Dating back to 2019, the Seawolves are 2-11 in their last 13 games.
With the goal-line stand, the Seawolves lost their first ever game in program history to Rhode Island. The 27-20 road overtime defeat on Oct. 2 handed Stony Brook its third consecutive loss, to another opponent that it had historically dominated.
The Seawolves fell 19 yards shy of completing what would have been an all-time comeback, ultimately falling 27-21 to the New Hampshire Wildcats at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium on Thursday, Sept. 2 in the season opener.
With one-third of the abbreviated spring 2021 season already in the books, the Stony Brook football team has a lot of searching to do after being routed on the road 31-3 by the No. 19 Delaware Blue Hens on Saturday, March 13, falling to 0-2.
