RPI Football Hoping to Break Its Losing Streak Saturday

RPI Varsity Football (0-2) takes on WPI (1-2) at '86 Field, on Saturday at 1:30pm Eastern Time. The game will be Webcast on WRPI in RealAudio format.

Update: Tim Wilkin of the Times-Union wrote a good article documenting the problems that the team has had this season.

The game against WPI is played each year for The Transit Trophy. Many recent graduates of Rensselaer believe that the Transit Trophy game is steeped in tradition. While that may be true of the rivalry between Rensselaer and Worcester Tech, the trophy itself has only been awarded to the winner since 1980.

If you need more information on listening to WRPI over the Internet, check out WRPI's RealAudio FAQ.

In the course of researching this article, we uncovered this small Web Site devoted to RPI sports history. It appears that it may be the work of Kurt Stutt. There is some useful information here that we have not seen elsewhere.
