  1. Fairmont State's Season Saved by a False Start?

    "There's no place like home." Week 2 proved that in the MEC as four of the five home teams secured victories for their fans. The fifth--Urbana--nearly made it a clean sweep. Two delivered shutouts.

    Has the second week provided us with a true picture of what the future holds? Maybe.

  4. It's Game Day in the MEC

    The waiting game is over. Game day is upon us. How much of an impact will the loss of key seniors have on a team? How well will the young guys rise to the occasion to fill those gaps? We will begin to see the answers to those questions—not in a matter of days, but a matter of hours.

  5. Mountain East Conference - 2017 Season is Upon Us

    Well folks we are less than a week away from kickoff when the 2017 season gets underway. Mountain East Conference fans have plenty of action to select from as seven conference teams begin play Thursday evening; Fairmont State seeing the first out-of-conference competition as they host East Stroudsburg (PSAC).
