The University of Massachusetts Minutemen invade “The Garden State” to clash with the Scarlet Knights at High Points Solutions Stadium in Piscataway, New Jersey. UMass ended last year’s season with a 4-8 win/loss tally bringing them to their second year of winning not more than 5 games in each season. The MInutemen management team decided to replace Mark Whipple to Walt Bell as head coach of UMass. The Minutemen lost two QBs in 2018 but veteran QB Michael Curtis should take the reins to stabilize the losses; he threw 4 TDs on limited playing time last season. Curtis will be looking for a replacement of WR Andy Isabella who made 100 catches in his final year before his 2nd round draft pick to the Arizona Cardinals in the NFL.

UMass defenses failed to hold opponents which was why Whipple was thrown out as head coach. New Head Coach Walt Bell used to be the offensive coordinator of Florida State and will use his skills and experience to turn around UMass into a team with a winning attitude. The Minutemen allowed opponents to score at an average of 42.9 points per game. The team’s efforts to put a stop on rushes and passes as rival teams averaged on 274.8 yards per match on the ground did not happen The University of Massachusetts is 3-8 SU in its last 11 contests and 0-5 SU in their last 5 games against a team from the Big 10 Conference. Four out of 5 UMass matches went over the totals on matches played in week 1.
