AMHERST, Mass. - The UMass Sports Network has been recognized with a Regional Associated Press Broadcasting Award for 2012 for its radio coverage of UMass Minutemen football.

For the 11th consecutive year, a UMass radio production won the Best College Sports Play-by-Play category. The broadcast, which aired from Gillette Stadium in Foxboro on Sept. 29, 2012, featured a late UMass football comeback bid as the Minutemen nearly upset undefeated Ohio University.

Fifth-year "Voice of the Minutemen" Josh Maurer called the play-by-play alongside color analyst Matt Goldstein and sideline reporter Adam Frenier. Andy Bukowski produced the broadcast, which aired on flagship station WEEI (105.5 FM, Springfield) and two affiliates.

This is the fourth straight year that Maurer has been honored for his play-by-play work. Former UMass voice Bob Behler, who is now the voice of the Boise State Broncos, helped the Network receive the same award in 2000 and every year from 2002-2008.

The award winners were selected by judges from nominees throughout all of Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
