UNH captured the 2008 game 52-21, while UMass won a thriller last year 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 title each of the last four years.  

UNH has the third longest active streak of NCAA championship appearances with six-straight trips to the FCS playoffs (2004-2009), while UMass has advanced to the NCAA championship three times since 2003 (2003, 2006 and 2007).
 
In addition to serving as the home of the three-time Super Champion New England Patriots and the 2007 U.S. Open Cup champion 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.
