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.
Looking to turn the tide from a disappointing 2019, the Stony Brook football team returned to the turf on Saturday, March 6 for the 2021 spring season opener at home against the No. 5 Villanova Wildcats.
