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 last season 23-17. 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.
