Both Teams Enter Game with 5-0 Record
Hartford, Conn., Oct. 23, 2012 –The Trinity College football team, which won, 27-10, at Bowdoin last weekend to remain unbeaten at 5-0, will host the Middlebury College Panthers on Saturday, Oct. 27 at 12:30 p.m. in a battle of the last two undefeated teams in the both the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) and in New England Division III football.  Head Coach Jeff Devanney (7th season, 46-7) and the Bantams are looking to extend their nation-best 45-game winning streak at home against a Panther squad that has not lost since a 42-7 setback to Trinity last fall in Vermont. Trinity leads the all-time series against Middlebury, 26-9, and has won the last two meetings.  Saturday's game will be the first time Trinity and Middlebury face off when both teams have 5-0 records. Trinity won last year's game to improve to 6-0, and Trinity blanked Middlebury, 43-0, in 1992 to drop the Panthers to 5-1 the last time the Panthers entered this game undefeated.  Trinity is currently ranked No. 1 in the New England Division III Poll and No. 7 in the ECAC Lambert Meadowlands Poll, and the Bantams received seven votes in the latest National Poll and two votes in the latest American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) National Poll.
