Duquesne Dukes (7-4)


CCSU's Rossomando named NEC coach of the year

(STATS) - The Northeast Conference title race had typically been the tightest in the FCS this decade, but Central Connecticut State won going away this season.

As a result, Pete Rossomando was named the NEC coach of the year on Wednesday.

After starting their regular season with three straight losses, the Blue Devils won their final eight games, including a 6-0 NEC mark, to finish as the first unbeaten team in the conference since Albany in 2008. Picked fourth in the preseason poll, they captured the title by two games in a conference that had co-champions in six of the seven previous seasons.
