UNH, Holy Cross will renew rivalry starting in 2016
The University of New Hampshire and Holy Cross football teams – which first met in 1909 – announced yesterday that they will play each other for four straight seasons beginning in 2016.
Holy Cross won that first matchup 105 years ago by a score of 13-0, but UNH owns the lead in the all-time series, 7-6. After a 27-year hiatus, UNH defeated Holy Cross, 39-32, at Cowell Stadium in 2011, then opened the following season with a 38-17 victory in Worcester, Mass.
The games will be in Durham in 2016 and ’18 and in Worcester in ’17 and ’19.
