UPDATE: The current expected temperature at game time tonight will be a brisk 31 degrees, with no expected precipitation.


PREVIOUS STORY: Russ Huesman spent 17 years coaching in the Colonial Athletic Association.  His defense has lined up against New Hampshire more times than he can count.  But Huesman's not to sure it will help his Mocs come Friday.

Russ Huesman, Mocs head coach, "The biggest thing that I can help with, maybe tell them take a left or a right to get to the stadium. Other than that, what happened at Richmond or William and Mary is gonna be much of a factor. they're a different team."

Different but yet still the same in many ways.  A lot of that is due to offensive genius Chip Kelly, a UNH grad who worked his way up to Offensive Coordinator before leaving for Oregon and then the NFL.  Needless to say Kelly's offense kept defensive coordinators like Huesman up at night.

"So far ahead it wasn't even close.  They were doing things that nobody imagined doing offensively.  We'd look at something and be like what's going on here.  Gotta try to figure it out, now it's something I see, I say we see that all the time."

Huesman left the CAA in '09,  Chip Kelly left in '06 but Huesman says his footprint at UNH still leaves a mark.

"It was a million formations back then, million motions, very creative, they still are that way."
