UNH and UMass have played each other every year since 1952, with UMass holding a 43-27-3 advantage. UNH captured the 2008 game 52-21 while UMass won a thriller in 2009, 23-17. In last season's first Colonial Clash, the Wildcats used a fast start to end with a 39-13 win in front of over 32,000 fans. The annual rivalry almost always has a direct bearing on the Colonial Athletic Association championship chase as UMass and UNH have captured or shared the conference's North Division title each of the last six years. UMass has advanced to the NCAA championship three times since 2003 (2003, 2006 and 2007) while UNH has been selected to play in the NCAA championship each of the past six seasons (2004-2009).

The contest will be the second ever college football game at Gillette Stadium, the 68,756-seat home of the New England Patriots that is designed to represent New England heritage with its signature lighthouse and bridge.

Tickets for the "Colonial Clash" are on sale now through Ticketmaster and the Gillette Stadium Ticket Office. Alumni of both schools can purchase tickets through their respective institution's ticket offices. The $25 ticket includes parking. Fans can select seats on their respective school's sideline. Tailgating will be permitted prior to the game with parking lots opening at 12:30 a.m. Group sale discounts and incentives for parties of 20 or more are available through Gillette Stadium directly by calling 877-438-7387.

In addition to serving as the home of New England Patriots and the New England Revolution, Gillette Stadium has hosted a variety of sporting events since opening in 2002, including the NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championships, FIFA World Cup qualifiers and high school football Super Bowls.
