After a 50-9 win where our defense shined (allowed 230 total yards, forced two turnovers, and produced a safety), we made the tournament as a #3 seed. We now face #24 Stonehill, and here's a look at our first-round opponent.

Stonehill likes to throw the ball, and they've got the quarterback and receivers to do that effectively. Their starter, David Francis, has thrown for 3,779 yards, 36 touchdowns, and three interceptions. However, their best player is probably running back Carl Green, who has nearly 3,300 total yards (2,114 rushing, 1,154 receiving) and 27 combined touchdowns.
They ran roughshod through their conference (a very good one) in the regular season, going undefeated in NE-10 play before losing in the conference title game. The only common opponent we share is Northwest Missouri State, who we both crushed (Stonehill won 33-7, we won 52-20). Every game from here on out is going to be tough, and WIS actually has Stonehill as a 3 1/2 point favorite.
