While it has taken a bit longer for teams and conference to get their schedules together for the 2021 season due to the Coronavirus outbreak and various restrictions surrounding the virus, Schedule release schedule has finally begun!
The Bryant Bulldogs are the 27th DI team to release their 2021 schedule and first from the NEC. This schedule release comes after the NEC’s announcement about spring sports this morning. Bryant comes into the 2021 season after going 3-4 during the shortened 2020 season.
Bryant’s Full 2021 Schedule
|3/13||Bryant||Mount St. Mary’s||NEC|
- 11-game schedule with three non-conference games.
- Plays Merrimack twice.
Games to Circle
2/13 vs Providence: The Bulldogs open the season against in-state rivals Providence. While there won’t be any Ocean State Cup implications this year with Brown not currently on either team’s schedule, it’s still a rivalry contest. Providence won last seasons meeting 16-9.
3/6 & 3/27 vs/@ Merrimack: Old NE-10 rivals, Bryant and Merrimack will be squaring off twice this season. That first game will mark the first time since 2008 that theses two squads have faced each other. Merrimack moved to DI last season after winning back-to-back DII titles in 2018 and 2019. Bryant made the move to DI following that 2008 season.
4/24 @ Sacred Heart: During the last full season in 2019, Sacred Heart edged Bryant 11-8. Seeing the Pioneers during the last week of the season in 2021 could prove to be a big game for the Bulldogs, who are trying to get back to the NEC Tournament.
