The UAlbany Great Danes football team is off to a 2-2 start.  They beat Morgan State on the road in wild fashion in double overtime to snap a very long road winless streak.  Not to mention there was a monsoon and it rained all game long.  It all sets up for what should be an exciting game on Saturday at 3:30 vs Villanova at home for the Hometown Heroes game.  CAA conference play now begins and UAlbany is way better than last year overall.  Below is my quick take on this from the Times Union:
It was not the best performance from the UAlbany football team on Saturday at Morgan State but the Great Danes still figured out a way to win in double overtime. UAlbany almost gave away the game late in the 4th quarter but overcame a costly turnover and won in double overtime on a touchdown run from Glens Falls freshman Griffin Woodell who might have saved the UAlbany season. His play along with another tremendous performance from the defense and UAlbany finished  their Non-Conference schedule at 2-2. If UAlbany can get it’s offense untracked they will be serious contenders in the CAA conference and that schedule begins Saturday at Casey Stadium against Villanova.
