RPI Loses Shotglass Shocker
D3football.com is reporting that the Coast Guard Academy shocked RPI in football, 24-21. The Bears victory stopped an eight game losing streak and gave them the Shotglass Trophy, a trophy signifying victory in the annual football game between the two schools.
The loss drops Rensselaer to 0-2. This is the first time that RPI has started 0-2 since 1987.
It took a while to find the results of this game. The Times-Union and the Troy Record failed to post stories on the game. We had heard that D3football.com was similar to US College Hockey in terms of its reliable coverage of action at the level of RPI's team, but this is the first time we had looked at it.
