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.
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.
Coming off a loss to then-No. 4 Oregon, facing a winless Fordham team from the weaker Patriot League should have been a nice tune-up before diving into the heart of conference play. Instead, the Seawolves were stunned and lost.
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.
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.
