UNH Football Back To School Survival Kit


#leadingthecharge — Just one more day until Charger football season returns. Make sure you visit the blog tomorrow for a New Haven season preview. Until then here is your final study packet class. As we approach the Chargers’ first exam on Saturday at Ralph DellaCamera Stadium against Merrimack, let’s take a look at some things UNH will need to do in order to ensure another Northeast-10 title.

RED TO RIGHTS: Yesterday we looked at the Chargers’ success in the red zone. Today we take a look at how often opposing teams were successful inside the 20. Last season the Chargers limited opponents to only 46 visits to the red zone. While in the red zone, the defense gave up scores 82.6 percent of the time. Twenty six of those 46 red zone scores were via touchdown. In order for New Haven to capture the NE-10 crown, it will need to continue to keep opposing offenses out of the red zone and bring that percentage down a bit.

Visit the blog on tomorrow for a comprehensive UNH season preview.
