Coverage Of @UMassFootball's Loss To Buffalo In Season Finale

The football team fell 41-21 last Friday against Buffalo in the season finale for the Minutemen. Despite a 3-9 record, the Minutemen won three of their last six games to end the year. The last two losses of the season came without starting quarterback Blake Frohnapfel who was in the midst of producing one of the best seasons in program history. Despite the tough way to end the year, many media members feel the upcoming season will be big for UMass.

"He's great, he's been absolutely terrific," Masella said of his 6-foot-2, 240 pound linebacker. "He's a calming influence and a voice of reason with our kids on the team that puts them in a comfortable position. And at the same time, he's a very good football player, he's a smart football player who really works at it."

Dan Malone of the Springfield Republican continues his countdown of the top 25 UMass football players to watch for the 2014 season. At No. 6 on the list is inside linebacker Stanley Andre who is one of the key veteran leaders of the team.
