This Saturday at 2 p.m., the Towson University football team will play its most significant regular season finale since 2011. In that game, the Tigers played at Rhode Island with the CAA title on the line. The Tigers beat the Rams and made the FCS playoffs for the first time in school history.
But this week, believe it or not, more is on the line than in 2011. That team was pretty much assured a spot in the playoffs, win or lose. The 2018 version of the Tigers is assured nothing at this point. If you look at the history of who has gotten into the playoffs and who has been left out, right now Towson looks like it is sitting pretty. Don’t tell that to head coach Rob Ambrose though. He remembers very well how the 2012 Tiger team was left on the outside looking in with a record of 7-4. Read more
