Key Games

2/11 vs Providence: The Brad Ross era at Bryant officially gets underway on February 11th when the Bulldogs face in-state rival Providence, who also has a new head coach. The contest will pit Providence assistant Casey Broderson and Bryant assistant Chris Gabrielli, who was the Providence head coach, against their old teams. An Ocean State Cup game, this one is typically one of circle and is expect to be intense. Bryant won 19-7 last year.

2/18 vs Boston U.: The first major test for this Bulldogs squad will come during its second week of the season against the Boston U. Terriers. Last season, Bryant fell to Boston U. 13-18 on a snow-covered field on the road. The Bulldogs will be looking to score a major non-conference victory at home this season.

3/18 vs UMBC: Bryant opens America East play at home against the UMBC Retrievers. It will be the first-ever meeting between Bryant and UMBC, and will be a contest that could be a great measuring stick game to see exactly where this Bulldogs squad is compared to its America East foes.
