Know Your 2015 Opponents: Central Connecticut State (and the NEC)

The Pete Rossomando era couldn't have started much better for Central Connecticut State fans in 2014.

Not many outsiders gave the Blue Devils much of a chance when they made the trip to Johnny Unitas stadium to take on the No. 7 team in the nation, Towson.

Sure, they had RB Rob Holloman, an all-purpose everything back that would almost certainly be invited to an NFL camp (he was), but certainly that wasn't enough to run with the Tigers, right?

Behind a career game by QB Nick SanGiacomo, a transfer from Tulane, CCSU did indeed run with the Tigers, upsetting Towson 31-27 and seemingly announcing that the Blue Devils were going to be in stiff competition for the NEC title and a bid to the FCS playoffs.

Unfortunately, that's not how things turned out for the Blue Devils.
