Against one of the worst teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), a disastrous first quarter pushed the Stony Brook football team’s season-opening losing streak to three games. The Seawolves’ struggles continued on Saturday night in Arkansas.
After starting the season with back-to-back blowout losses, the Stony Brook football team will look to find itself before the season gets out of hand. This Saturday, Stony Brook will head to Jonesboro, Ark. to take on a Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) foe.
Perhaps blinded by the Friday night lights, the Seawolves lost their first road game of the season to the No. 22/22 Rhode Island Rams 35-14. The second frame was the difference in the contest, as the Rams outscored Stony Brook 21-0.
Quarterback Casey Case is Stony Brook’s shiny new signal-caller. The 6-foot-6 self-described pocket passer joined the Seawolves in time for spring ball and made an instant impression on head coach Chuck Priore — winning the starting job outright.
All 11 games on the Seawolves’ schedule were wiped on July 17, when the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) announced that it was suspending the fall football season, with the intent to play in spring 2021 instead.
