KINGSTON (WPRI) – The University of Rhode Island football team achieved something Saturday that they have not done since 2001. The Rams are off to a 4-0 start, and the fourth win did not come easy.
URI hosted CAA rival Stony Brook at Meade Stadium Saturday afternoon and it was a battle all the way through. The score was locked at 20 down to the final seconds of regulation. The Rams missed a field goal to win it as time expired.
URI pulled off the win in overtime with quarterback Kasim Hill finding tight end Caleb Warren for the go-ahead score.
The Rams defense came up with a big stop in the red zone on fourth-and-1 to close it out. URI won 27-20.
