Rams look ahead to 2020

KINGSTON – The 2019 season may have just ended, but the URI football team has already received their marching orders for 2020. The CAA announced the official schedule for all of its members late last week, revealing that the Rams will play Northern Illinois, Bryant and Brown in their three non-conference games.

The NIU Huskies represent the annual ‘buy’ game for the Rams. The FBS team is 4-7 so far this season and compete in the MAC West. That non-conference game will be on the road, as will the tilt against Bryant. It is URI’s turn in 2019 to host the Governor’s Cup, meaning Brown will visit Meade Stadium in early October.

In the conference slate, Rhody has been matched up with New Hampshire, Villanova, Albany,  Elon, Maine, Richmond, William & Mary and Towson. 

Of the CAA teams that URI will host in Kingston  – Albany, UNH, Maine and William & Mary  – only the Tribe do not have a winning record in the CAA this season. Things don’t get much easier on the road. Two of the three road opponents have current winning records.
