The University of Albany Great Danes Football team is off to a pretty rough start on the season. They have lost their first two games and even though one of those loses was completely expected you could argue their performance against Pitt lead us to believe they should mop the floor with Rhode Isla…
Last year the Danes were knocked out of the tournament in the second round of the NCAA Tournament by Maryland, who went on to win it all. This year the Danes already beat the Terrapins and will be looking to bring home a banner.
The ladies led the MAAC Championship from wire to wire in a nine team field that took place on April 20th through the 22nd. They finished 12 shots ahead of second place Quinnipiac in the team competition while senior Annie Songen Lee won the individual competition by seven strokes.
UAlbany erased a couple of 'nevers' Saturday night. The Great Danes had never beaten Villanova in their brief head to head history (0-3) and they had never picked up a win over a top 10 ranked FCS opponent. Both of those nevers no longer exist.
