Stony Brook, N.Y. -


In this week's Big South football weekly teleconference, Stony Brook head coach Chuck Priore recaps the 32-31 win over Colgate and looks ahead to facing Army in the final non-conference game of the 2012 regular season.

Colgate recap

  • "Last week's game against Colgate was very interesting.  It was the largest crowd in stadium history.  It was an exciting time for alumni and students.  As for the game, we took a 17-0, but we gave up a score, turned the ball over a few times and were losing, 21-17, at halftime.  I credit Colgate for coming back.  I thought we regrouped and possessed the ball well in the second half.  We played together for four quarters."

Looking at Army

  • Saturday's game presents a few concerns.  The tradition of playing a school like Army and preparing for their offense is challenging.  It certainly will be a change for our defensive unit.  As in past years, they have a terrific offense.  They've scored in the 40s during the last two games.  I'm excited for the challenge of playing up there.  We're going to have a solid fan base up there.  We're healthy and we expect to play a lot of players."
