UNH's Vailas is now No. 1
That's the backdrop as the UNH football team readies for the revival of its rivalry series against Dartmouth College. The No. 4 Wildcats, who have won their last two games and are 2-1, and Dartmouth, which won its opener against Central Connecticut last week, play on Saturday night at 6.
Goldrich sprained his knee last week in a win over Richmond and will be out for at least two weeks.
UNH drew 9,358 fans for its opener against Lehigh and administrators are looking for a bigger crowd Saturday.
"I'll stand out there during the national anthem, under the lights, for sure," said director of athletics Marty Scarano. "Hopefully it's the crowd we expect. We're expecting a five-figure crowd that, who knows, maybe rivals a Homecoming crowd. It will be kind of like, 'Oh My God,' this is really happening."
Lights and renovated grandstands have dressed Cowell up for this season and a brand new $25 million stadium is due for 2016.
