Key Games

2/9 vs Bucknell

The Bulldogs haven’t beaten the Bison since 2014. Bryant will open up against Bucknell for the second year in a row, looking to claim their second ever win over the Bison. Last season, Bucknell won 9-6. 

2/15 @ Providence

One of the Bulldog’s three wins last season came against the Friars in an early-season matchup. Against a Rhode Island foe, this game has Ocean State Cup implications and both squads will be getting up for this one. Bryant won last year’s contest 11-8. 

3/28 @ Merrimack

These old Northeast 10 rivals will be squaring off for the first time since 2008 with Merrimack-the 2019 DII champions-moving from DII to DI this season. Bryant made the same move following the 2008 season. 

4/4 @ Sacred Heart

Last season, the Pioneers got the best of the Bulldogs in an early April contest, winning 11-8. With both being put in the East Division this year as the NEC splits into two divisions, this contest may have bigger implications than usual.
