After last week’s comeback effort fell short against Towson, the Stony Brook football team will return home to face the reigning CAA champion, the Delaware Blue Hens, at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium on Saturday, Oct. 16 at 3:30 p.m.
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.
For the past 434 days, the Stony Brook football team’s record was .500 or better. Following their 17-10 loss to the University of Delaware Blue Hens (5-6, 3-4), the Seawolves (5-6, 2-5) winning percentage is now .455 and they have now lost five of their past six games after starting the season 4-1.
The Seawolves failed to dictate their typical style of play for the majority of the opening period and went into the second intermission with just one goal for the first time this season. By the time the third period began, the team had a renewed determination.
Following Stony Brook Football 21-18 victory over William and Mary on Saturday, the team’s fourth consecutive win, the Seawolves have catapulted themselves into both Football Championship Subdivision Top 25 standing polls.
