UMass vs Rhode Island Game Preview

Why Rhode Island Will Win

The UMass defense is a problem.

It’s been struggling all season long, and the offense has been the biggest issue to overcome, but the D has been destroyed over the last two weeks allowing 121 points.

Rhode Island will give up over 200 yards on the ground, but it’ll make up for it with a few big scoring plays and lightning strikes.
