SCOUTING THE BLACK BEARS: Maine, which hasn't shared a CAA championship since 2002 nor won an outright title since 1965, has the opportunity to do one or both today. With a victory, the Black Bears will clinch a share of the title; with a win and a Towson loss at Rhode Island, Maine will be the lone league champion and claim the automatic bid to the NCAA Championship tournament. The Bears boast the league's top pass defense (188.7 yards/game), which will be tested by the CAA's best pass offense Saturday.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Senior TB Pushaun Brown averages 96.3 rushing yards/game, good for fifth in the CAA, adding nine rushing scores. Senior QB Warren Smith trails only Kevin Decker in total offense (330.7 yards/game), ranks third in the league with 244.3 passing yards/game and is third in pass efficiency (139.2). Punt-return specialist Trevor Coston averages a league-best 10.9 return yards/game, slightly ahead of UNH's Joey Orlando (10.2). Coston, a free safety, has also picked off five passes this season, tied for the most in the league. DE Michael Cole is ranked second in the league with 7.0 sacks, trailing only UNH's Brian McNally (7.5).
HISTORY OF THE BRICE-COWELL MUSKET: The Brice-Cowell Musket resided in the UNH football locker room for seven consecutive years before Maine reclaimed it last season. The musket is named after two former coaches, Fred Brice (Maine) and William Cowell (UNH), and it goes to the winner of the annual Maine-UNH game. The tradition began in the late 1940s. The musket is a flintlock rifle made by Ebenezer Nutting of Falmouth, Maine, sometime between 1722-45. The George I period flintlock rifle has a 43-inch barrel and is rifled to a .65 caliber.
SENIORITIS: Saturday is Senior Day, as 15 Wildcats will play their final home regular-season game at Cowell Stadium. Here is a numerical rundown of the Wildcat seniors:
#6 Chris Chandler, WR: A sixth-year senior who battled back from a catastrophic knee injury that cost him two full seasons. Has played in each game over last two seasons. Career highlight was 63-yard TD catch in 2010 second-round playoff win at Bethune-Cookman.
#7 Anthony Gorrell, CB: Started two games at cornerback and has been part of defensive backfield in each game this season. Notched interception on 2010 Senior Day in win over Towson and tallied career-high-matching five tackles in Colonial Clash triumph over UMass on Oct. 22.
#11 Mickey Mangieri, WR: After a broken leg derailed his 2010 campaign, he's been an integral part of receiving corps in '11. Made career-high eight receptions for 100 yards at William & Mary and tallied personal-high 102 receiving yards in Oct. 1 win against Holy Cross.
#12 Tyrone Conley, DB: After playing four years of basketball for the Wildcats and scoring 1,304 points (sixth all-time), he made the transition to football for '11 season and has been a special teams stalwart on kickoff returns.
#14 Kevin Decker, QB: Co-captain leads CAA in every passing category and is on brink of 3,000-yard passing season. In first year as starter, is in the running for Walter Payton Award as FCS's top player.
#18 A.J. DeLago, K: He's a perfect 5-for-5 in career field goals, including a 30-yarder in a playoff win at Bethune-Cookman in '10 and a career-high 37-yarder this year against Villanova.
#20 Kyle Flemings, CB: Leads all Wildcats with eight career interceptions, including a two-INT game at Towson in 2009. Made career-high 11 tackles in win at Richmond on Sept. 24.
#45 Rod Walker, WS: Former walk-on from Portsmouth, N.H., has started every game this season. Highlights include a 10-tackle performance at Richmond and a 42-yard interception return in win over Villanova.
#46 Jason Roach, DB: Was winner of the inaugural Todd Walker Teammate Award in spring football for selflessness as teammate.
#50 Andrew Drazin, DE: An injury put this Hollis, N.H., native on the shelf for the season. Made his one career tackle in the 2010 season finale vs Towson.
#51 Mark Petercuskie, LS/LB: Starting long snapper adds depth to linebacking corps; made career-high seven tackles last season vs Towson and set career high with four assisted tackles in '11 season opener at Toledo.
#56 James Jenkins, DE: Has started 23 straight games at defensive end and has led Wildcat linemen in tackles for two straight seasons.
#68 George Pecoraro, OL/SS: After starting all 13 games at left guard as a junior, he has continued adding depth in trenches this season while also serving as the team's short snapper.
#87 Sean Cullen, TE: Has developed into top receiving threat with 14 receptions for 264 yards and two TDs in last five games.
#98 Brian McNally, DE: Co-captain set the UNH all-time, single-season record with 13.5 sacks in 2010 and leads the CAA once again in '11 with 7.5 sacks.
THE HIGHS AND LOWS: UNH boasts the CAA's top total offense, pass offense, and red zone offense, but the Wildcats are also the owners of the league's lowest-ranked total defense, rush defense and pass defense, along with the CAA's worst time of possession.
CULLEN ALONG NICELY: Senior TE Sean Cullen has become a focal point of the offense in the second half of the season. After totaling only one reception for 17 yards through the first five games, the Naples, Fla., native has nabbed 14 passes for 264 yards (52.8 yards/game) and two TDs in the last five games.
BEST IN CAA OVER LAST EIGHT YEARS: Since the dawning of the 2004 season, UNH has posted the top overall record among all CAA schools, and the second-best conference record. The Wildcats enter today just one game behind James Madison for the top league record over the past eight seasons:
School Conf. Overall
James Madison 44-18 67-28
UNH 43-19 70-25
Richmond 36-26 60-34
110 WEEKS AND COUNTING: UNH is ranked in the Top 25 for a CAA-best 110th straight week, the nation's second-longest streak that dates back to Sept. 13, 2004. Delaware, at a distant 27 weeks, has the second-longest ranked tenure in the league. Montana's staggering run of 190 consecutive weeks leads the country.
•QB Kevin Decker has either passed or rushed for a TD in every start of his career, a span of 12 consecutive games.
•Joey Orlando has recorded multiple receptions in 13 straight games dating back to last season.
•Dontra Peters has secured at least one pass reception in each of the first 10 games.
•The Wildcats' defense has recorded at least one INT in each of the last nine games.
GETTING IT DUNGEON: Since the start of the 2007 season, the Wildcats are 22-3 at Cowell Stadium and have lost to only two schools during this amazing stretch: Northeastern, 31-13, on Nov. 3, 2007, and twice to William & Mary: 38-34, on Oct. 11, 2008, and 13-3 on Nov. 6, 2010.
FAN-TASTIC SUPPORT: The Wildcats are averaging 7,272 fans per home game, filling Cowell Stadium up to 111.9% of capacity, the largest % in the CAA.
TAKING AIM AT EIGHT STRAIGHT POSTSEASONS: A win over Maine will assure UNH of an FCS-leading eighth straight berth in the NCAA D-I Championship tournament. Even with a loss, the Wildcats have reason to believe their name will be called during the NCAA Championship Selection Show (10 a.m., Sunday, Nov. 20, ESPNU). During the seven-year streak of playoff appearances, the Wildcats have qualified with a 7-4 record twice: 2007, when it was a 16-team field; and 2010, when the field expanded to 20 teams for the first time.
The Wildcats are 6-1 in their opening playoff games during the streak, advancing to the quarterfinals in six of the seven years of the span.
SCHEDULE: In 2010, UNH set a school record by
knocking off five ranked opponents. On Saturday, the Wildcats
attempt to match that record vs. No. 11/11 Maine. UNH has defeated
four ranked teams (Lehigh, Richmond, UMass, James Madison), posting
a 4-2 mark against Top-25 foes in '11. Maine is the seventh
FCS ranked foe on the schedule and an eighth contest came vs FBS
bowl-eligible Toledo .
LAST TIME OUT: TOWSON-56, UNH-42 NOV. 12:
TOWSON, Md. – Kevin Decker threw for a touchdown, rushed for two more and accumulated 389 passing yards, but the seventh-ranked University of New Hampshire football team was outscored 56-42 by 12th-ranked Towson University in a CAA football shootout Saturday afternoon at Unitas Stadium.
Towson, which defeated UNH for the first time in eight all-time meetings, upped its record to 8-2 overall and 6-1 in the CAA, tied for first place in the league with Maine. The Wildcats, who saw their three-game winning streak snapped, fell to 7-3, 5-2 in the CAA.
Decker completed 36 of 43 passes for 389 yards with a TD and three interceptions. He added a team-leading 75 rushing yards and two scores on 12 attempts.
Towson freshman running back Terrance West gashed his way to a career-high 261 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 23 carries to lead a potent Tigers' attack that racked up 517 yards of total offense.
New Hampshire outgained Towson with a season-high 611 yards, but committed four turnovers in the contest.
Matt Evans amassed a game-high 19 tackles to lead UNH, moving into third place on the school's all-time, single-season list with 142 stops, 14 tackles behind his 2010 total, which is the second-most in University history.
UNH scored on its initial drive, chalking up 84 yards on nine plays before Dontra Peters (nine rushes-32 yards, TD/two catches-five yards) carried in for a six-yard touchdown for a 7-0 lead with 11:22 left in the first quarter. Decker was 5 of 5 for 59 yards through the air on the drive, highlighted by a 37-yard completion to Justin Mello (four catches, 51 yards, TD) deep down the right sideline to the Tigers' 12.
Towson immediately responded with a 73-yard TD run from West with 9:48 left in the first to tie the game, 7-7. West became the first back to gain 70-plus yards from scrimmage against the Wildcats since Tim Hightower's 72-yard scamper for Richmond on Sept. 22, 2006.
The Wildcats advanced into Tigers' territory on their second drive before Decker was stuffed for a one-yard loss on 4th-and-1 from the Towson 43. On the first play of the subsequent drive, Grant Enders (14-for-18, 183 yards, 2 TDs, INT) connected with tight end James Oboh (three receptions-97 yards, 2 TDs), who bounced off a hit along the right sideline and raced to the end zone for a 56-yard touchdown and a 14-7 Tigers' lead with 7:45 left in the quarter.
That lead ballooned to 21-7 courtesy of a 45-yard interception return for a touchdown by cornerback Tye Smith, who snared Decker's pass to the left flat and dashed untouched for the score with 6:54 left in the opening stanza, marking the first pick-six against New Hampshire since Terrell McMoore of Northern Iowa on Dec. 6, 2008.
Decker pieced together his second 5-for-5 passing drive, accounting for 32 of the 51 yards on a possession that culminated in a five-yard TD strike to Mello that trimmed Towson's advantage to 21-14 with 2:37 remaining in opening stanza. Decker, who had to slither out of danger in the backfield on 3rd-and-3 from the 5, lofted his 17th touchdown pass of the year to Mello in the back right-hand corner of the end zone.
West notched his second rushing TD of the day, forging his way in from two yards out to cap a nine-play, 73-yard drive that lifted Towson's lead to 28-14 with 13:13 left in the half.
Enders and Oboh hooked up for their second TD pass-and-catch combination of the contest, this time an 11-yard connection, with 9:38 left in the half to expand the lead to 35-14.
Back came the 'Cats, with Decker orchestrating a six-play, 38-yard drive, completing back-to-back passes to tight end Sean Cullen (five catches-95 yards) for 17 and 22 yards, respectively, in the middle of the field to advance to Towson's 13. Chris Chandler (two catches-20 yards) was on the receiving end of a 12-yard pass to the 1, and Decker called his own number on 2nd-and-goal to slice the deficit to 35-21 with 6:51 left in the half.
The Tigers bumped their lead back to three scores when West rambled 69 yards for his third TD of the game for a 42-21 lead with 5:23 left in the half.
Chris Setian (nine rushes-59 yards/five catches-49 yards) put a ribbon on an eight-play, 85-yard drive with his third rushing TD of the year, a four-yard carry with 2:25 left in the second quarter to bring UNH within 42-28 at the intermission.
The halftime break failed to slow down the home team, evidenced by Derrick Joseph's 93-yard kickoff return for a TD on the opening play of the third quarter for a 49-28 lead. It was the first kick return for a score yielded by the Wildcats since Sept. 5, 2009.
Decker retaliated with his second rushing TD of the game, drawing UNH within 49-35 with 11:39 left in the third period.
West tallied his fourth rushing score of the game, and nation-leading 25th of the season, on a two-yard carry with 6:21 left in the third to make it 56-35.
Nico Steriti (10 rushes-56 yards, TD/eight catches-90 yards) provided the final points of the wild night with a three-yard touchdown scamper with 5:04 left in the game.
•LB Matt Evans needs 15 tackles to overtake his 2010 season and reclaim second place in UNH single-season history with 157 stops.
•QB Kevin Decker is 166 passing yards away from No. 5 in single-season history, 241 yards shy of No. 4 and 256 yards away from No. 3. With 131 more passing yards, the senior co-captain will become the fourth QB in school history to register a 3,000-yard passing season; the others are Bob Jean, Ricky Santos and R.J. Toman.
•FS Chris Beranger is 11 tackles away from 10th place in school single-season history.
EVANS LEADS NATION IN TACKLES/GAME: Junior MLB Matt Evans leads all of FCS football in tackles/game (14.2) and solo tackles/game (8.5), and his 142 total tackles are ranked second in the nation. He has posted double-digit tackles in eight of his 10 games this year and in 19 of his last 23 games. He set a career benchmark with a CAA season-high 24-tackle performance in the victory at 11th-ranked Lehigh on Sept. 10, and then registered 14 more tackles and returned his second career interception for a TD, racing back 31 yards for a score, in the Wildcats' 45-43 upset of No. 5 Richmond on Sept. 24. For his efforts, Evans was feted with honorable mention as the CFPA National Linebacker Performer of the Week.
In the Colonial Clash victory over UMass (27-21) on Oct. 22, Evans notched a game-high 13 tackles -all solo- and was subsequently named the CAA Defensive Player of the Week, a College Sporting News All-Star and the Beyond Sports Network Defensive Player of the Week. Most recently, the Hanover, Mass., native racked up 19 tackles, nine solo, at Towson on Nov. 12 to capture the Beyond Sports Network Defensive Player of the Week award.Here is Evans compared to the nation's best:
Player School Gm. Solo Assist. Total
1. Clarence Bumpas N. Colorado 11 56 89 145
2. Matt Evans UNH 10 85 57 142
3. Anthony Bowman St. Francis 11 41 100 141
4. Blake Peiffer SE Mo. St. 10 65 71 136
5. Robert McCabe Georgetown 11 59 75 134
EVANS ON CUSP OF PASSING SELF ON SINGLE-SEASON TACKLES' LIST: Junior MLB Matt Evans, a member of the Buck Buchanan Award Watch List and the leading tackler in FCS football, is within 15 tackles of surpassing his career high in stops, set during his sophomore campaign. Evans already owns the No. 2 and 3 single-season stop totals, and is 53 tackles away from the highest one-year total in school history.
On the career charts, Evans' 19-tackle performance at Towson on Nov. 12 elevated him to No. 7 all-time, and he's within 19 more tackles of gaining a berth in UNH's Top 5.
SAFETY IS BERANGEROUS: Sophomore FS Chris Beranger has proven to be more than just Robin to Matt Evans's Batman in 2011. While Evans leads the country in tackles/game, Beranger is third in the league with 11.1 tackles/game (T-11th in FCS) and third in the CAA with 6.0 solo tackles/game (T-11th in FCS). He is just 11 tackles away from breaking into UNH's single-season Top 10 (see above). The Winthrop, Mass., native has led the Wildcats in tackles in five of the last eight games, including 13 stops in the Oct. 29 Homecoming victory over Rhode Island. Beranger tacked on his first career sack and a forced fumble to earn honorable mention as the CFPA National Defensive Back Performer of the Week. Beranger previously recorded a career-high 17 stops in the win at Richmond on Sept. 24, notched16 tackles in the loss at William & Mary on Oct. 15 and topped the 'Cats with 14 tackles in the Colonial Clash victory over UMass on Oct. 22.
EVANS/BERANGER ON BRINK OF BECOMING BEST 1-2 PUNCH IN SCHOOL HISTORY: With one more regular-season game, and the potential of playoff games on the horizon, the combination of MLB Matt Evans and FS Chris Beranger is just about assured of setting the school's all-time record for single-season tackles by a pair. The pace-setters, from the 2007 squad, are currently MLB Husain Karim and FS Jeff Pammer, who amassed 260 total tackles. Currently, the Evans/Beranger duo is only seven tackles shy of the mark, well within their sights:
CAA'S TOP DECKER: UNH senior quarterback Kevin Decker, a member of the 2011 Walter Payton Award Watch List for the most outstanding player in the FCS, is ranked fourth nationally in total offense (330.7 yards/game), sixth in the nation in points responsible for/game (16.9), No. 5 in pass efficiency (157.2), ninth in passing yards/game (286.9) and ninth in total passing yards (2,869). The 6-foot-2, 205-pound QB leads the CAA in those departments, along with TD passes (17) and completions/game (22.8/14th in FCS).
A national panel of sports information and media relations directors, broadcasters, writers and other dignitaries will vote on the 25th Walter Payton Award after the regular season. The honor will be presented at the FCS national awards banquet Friday night, Jan. 6, in Frisco, Texas.
Running back Jerry Azumah (1998) and quarterback Ricky Santos (2006) are the two previous Wildcats to garner the Payton Award.
DECKER SETTING SIGHTS ON SINGLE-SEASON TOP 5: If QB Kevin Decker passes for his average (286.9 yards/game) against Maine, he will eclipse 3,000 yards for the season, becoming only the fourth QB in school history to accomplish that feat, and he would break into the University's Top 3 in single-season yardage. Currently, the senior co-captain has thrown for 2,869 yards, the seventh-most in a Wildcat single season. Here is a look at Decker's standing among the all-time best signal callers at UNH:
Player Year Passing Yards
1. Ricky Santos (2005) 3,797
2. Ricky Santos (2004) 3,318
3. Ricky Santos (2006) 3,125
4. R.J. Toman (2008) 3,110
5. Bob Jean (1986) 3,035

8. Matt Griffin (1991) 2,734
9. Ryan Day (2001) 2,605
10. Mike Granieri (2003) 2,595
DECKER AMONG ALL-TIME TOP 10 IN COMPLETIONS,YARDS: After serving as a backup for three seasons, senior QB Kevin Decker has made the most of his lone year as the starter, climbing into UNH's all-time Top 10 in career completions (No. 9) and passing yards (No. 10). He is 337 yards shy of No. 9 all-time in yardage and 37 completions away from No. 8. With 11 more attempts, he'll crack the Top 10 in that category as well. Here is a glance at Decker's career totals, and how he rates among the best in school history:
Player Seasons Career Passing Yards
1. Ricky Santos 2004-07 12,189
8. Jeff Allen 1974-77 4,184

9. Jeff Allen 1974-77 563
10. Rick Leclerc 1981-84 465
Kevin Decker 2008-11 454
YEAR OF THE QB-2007: Kevin Decker needs 131 passing yards to hit the 3,000-yard mark for the season, which would make him only the fourth QB in UNH history (Bob Jean, Ricky Santos, R.J. Toman) to reach that benchmark. Decker was a true freshman in 2007 when Santos was a senior and Toman was a redshirt freshman.
NOV. 19, A SERIOUSLY OFFENSIVE DATE: The combined 98 points scored in Towson's 56-42 win over UNH on Nov. 12 represented the fourth-highest combined score in Wildcats' history. Coincidentally, the three highest-scoring games all-time at UNH occurrred on Nov. 19, the same date as the UNH/Maine '11 finale:
Date Result Combined Total
11/19/88 UMass-64, UNH-42 106

11/12/11 Towson-56, UNH-42 98
IMPERFECT STORM-NOV. 12: In the Wildcats' 56-42 loss at Towson on Nov. 12, UNH surrendered a kickoff return for a TD for the first time since Sept. 5, 2009, a pick-six for the first time since Dec. 6, 2008, and a 70-plus yard run from scrimmage for the first time since Sept. 22, 2006.
ZARKOSKIE NAMED TO 2011 CAPITAL ONE ACADEMIC ALL-DISTRICT ® FOOTBALL TEAM: UNH junior offensive lineman Chris Zarkoskie was named to the 2011 Capital One Academic All-District ® Football Team on Nov. 11, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) to recognize the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom.
