The Bison were picked as the preseason favorite for this year's Patriot League Championship as Holy Cross was picked seventh.
- The team marked its best performance in program history at the 2008 Patriot League Championship. That year, the squad finished in fourth place out of the seven teams and had two second team All-Patriot League selections. Widman is the only player on the current roster to have competed in the historical event, and finished in a tie for 25th with a three-round score of 249.
