Games to Circle

3/13 & 4/17 vs/@ Vermont: During the last full season (2019), Vermont got their second win over Albany since 2011 during the regular season and knocked them off in the America East semifinals. Again this season, both of these games very much has the potential of being a preview of an America East Tournament matchup and could have postseason implications.

3/9 vs UMass: Last season, UAlbany fell to UMass 17-11, in one of the better midweek contests of the season. UMass held just a one-goal, 9-8, lead over the Danes before the Minutemen went on an 8-4 run in the second half, including four consecutive goals in the fourth quarter to help secure the victory.

4/9 @ Syracuse: Due to the 2020 season getting cut short, we never got to see the historic Syracuse at Albany game last season. But the series continues this year, but it will be back in the Carrier Dome just like the other 18 meetings between these two. While Syracuse leads the series 17-1 and won the last meeting 13-5, this one has been pretty close in recent years and could be again this year.
