something to look forward to.
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.

2024 UMass college football season preview with quick breakdowns, the best players, keys to the season, and prediction with projected win total.
https://collegefootballnews.com/news/um ... total-2024
There are just enough easy games to make this a possible four-win season - with the desperate hope of getting to five. The transfer portal took away a few key players, but brought in bulk options to provide more depth than the team has had in a long time.

UMass football fans deserve to start enjoying themselves.
Go UMass!!

The quick synopsis of last season made me laugh and cry at the same time:

- The offense wasn't good
- The defense really wasn't good
- Special teams were atrocious

:( :lol: :lol: :(

it's true from general perspective. We lost 7 straight games after the NMSU win. The Auburn game as #2 game was a season killer. We should get a couple wins or 3 in the first half of this season but the second half with 3 SEC teams is ridiculous. Thank God we are moving to the MAC and will have stability and I think a bowl game in the near future. Independence is a non starter if you are not ND. Even UCant will be having problems scheduling games in a couple years.

If (hopefully when) Umass finally makes a bowl appearance, the first one they ever play in will be the one in Fenway.... Book it.

Not necessarily with being in the MAC... from this site for 2023-24 (the site sorta sucks and has tons of ads/videos, go at your own risk):
https://collegefootballnews.com/predict ... -2023-2024
MAC Bowl Ties, Affiliations
The top-ranked MAC champion will be in the mix for the Fiesta, Cotton, or Chick-fil-A Peach if it's the highest-ranked Group of Five champ - and if it's not in the College Football Playoff.

The MAC doesn’t have a true pecking order. The bowls matchups are based on best possible games and geography.

- Bahamas Bowl vs Conference USA
- Camellia Bowl vs American Athletic or Sun Belt
- Famous Idaho Potato Bowl vs Mountain West
- LendingTree Bowl vs Sun Belt
- Barstool Arizona Bowl vs Mountain West
- Quick Lane Bowl vs Big Ten

To be determined among the Group of Five conferences. MAC will get spots in two of these bowls ...

- Duluth Trading Co. Cure Bowl vs Group of Five
- Frisco Bowl vs Group of Five
- Myrtle Beach Bowl vs American Athletic or Sun Belt
- New Mexico Bowl vs Conference USA
- RoofClaim.com Boca Raton Bowl vs Group of Five

Missouri individual tickets went on sale today. $45 plus $3 ticket fee or $25 plus $3 ticket fee for youth discounted tickets.
Non prime seats are $25 plus the ticket fee and no youth discount.

The visitors section 16 has 1 ticket left. The rest seems to have decent availability.
