Boston Herald: @UMassFootball loves going to Ohio

John Connolly of the Boston Herald has a New England football recap today where he looks at some of the highlights of UMass football's win at Kent State on Saturday.

Saturday's road win snapped a 12-game losing streak, and marked the first time this season that the Minutemen held an opponent to fewer than 30 points. UMass (1-6, 1-2 Mid-American Conference) has now scored 40 or more points in three consecutive games, only the third time it has accomplished that feat in the 132-year history of the program.

The John Mackey Award unveiled its Midseason Watch List on Monday with UMass tight end Jean Sifrin being added to the group. The award is presented annually to college football's top tight end. Sifrin is the second player this year to be named to a national award watch list after Tajae Sharpe was added to the Biletnikoff Award for best wide receiver. This is also the second year that a UMass tight end has been on the Mackey Award watch list after Rob Blanchflower was on it in 2013.

Dan Malone of the Springfield Republican has an injury update after Mark Whipple's Monday conference call with reporters saying Marken Michel and Matt Sparks could be able to play this weekend. Sparks missed the Kent State game with injury, while Michel was injured during the game.

Gazette: Tailback Lorenzo Woodley breaks through for @UMassFootball

Matt Vautour of the Daily Hampshire Gazette has a story on running back Lorenzo Woodley who played a huge factor in Saturday's win at Kent State with 160 yards rushing. Woodley was critical late in the game as the Minutemen were able to hold the ball to run the clock in the third and fourth quarters.
