Dec. 19, 2013
Stony Brook, N.Y. - For the first time in school history, the Stony Brook football team will play 12 regular season games as head coach Chuck Priore announced the Seawolves' 2014 schedule Thursday morning.
Stony Brook will play four non-conference games and eight CAA contests.
"I think our 2014 schedule is one that will be challenging," Priore said. "I think our fans will enjoy the fact that we'll have six home games. Most importantly, we're looking forward to playing Stony Brook football, challenging for a CAA title and qualifying for the FCS playoffs."
Stony Brook will open the season at home against Bryant on Saturday, August 30. The Seawolves, who topped the Bulldogs, 21-13, before a Homecoming crowd of more than 11,000 last season, have won both games in the series.
The squad's seventh Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) game in school history will be at Connecticut on September 6.
The Seawolves will return home to host American International College on September 13. SBU defeated AIC in 2010, 31-14.
Stony Brook will head to Big Sky Country to face North Dakota on September 20. The Seawolves, who lost to UND, 31-24, in 2009, will host North Dakota in the season opener in 2016.
CAA play kicks off against William & Mary at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium on September 27. The Seawolves will head to Towson, a national semifinalist, to face the Tigers on October 4.
Stony Brook, which went 3-5 in its inaugural season in the conference, will take on Maine on October 11. The Seawolves will head to North Carolina the following week to face Elon, the CAA's newest member, on October 18.
With the addition of Elon, Stony Brook will not play Delaware, Villanova and Richmond in 2014.
New Hampshire, the second of the two CAA schools to reach the semifinals, will host Stony Brook on October 25.
After their bye week, the Seawolves will host James Madison on November 8 and close out the home portion of the schedule against Rhode Island on November 15.
The regular season concludes at Albany on November 22.
Stony Brook, which posted an overall record of 5-6, won at least five games for a ninth straight season.
