WORCESTER, Mass. — Holy Cross and the University of New Hampshire will resume their football rivalry with a four-game series from 2016-2019, as announced by Holy Cross director of athletics Nathan Pine and UNH director of athletics Marty Scarano. The teams will play two games at Fitton Field on Sept. 16, 2017, and Sept. 28, 2019. The other two contests will be played at Cowell Stadium in Durham, N.H., on Sept. 10, 2016, and Oct. 6, 2018.

"I am pleased to announce our upcoming four-game football series with New Hampshire," said Pine. "These games will be a great experience for our student-athletes as New Hampshire has been one of the premier programs in the Football Championship Subdivision over the last decade. The series will also be nice for our fans, because of the proximity of our two institutions both fan-bases will be able to attend each of the games."

Holy Cross and New Hampshire have played 13 times in their history, with the last meeting coming on Aug. 30, 2012. The Wildcats hold a 7-6 advantage in the all-time series.

Season and individual game tickets are still available for the 2014 campaign, and can be purchased by calling the Holy Cross Ticket Office at (508) 793-2573.
