Kean Hosts Rowan in NJAC Football Matchup



The Kean University Cougars will host the Rowan University Owls at Kean University in Union, NJ on Saturday. The game is scheduled to kick off a 1 p.m. ET. Kean has a record of 5-3 on the season.

They are also coming off of a 37-6 win a Southeastern Virginia University last weekend. The win ended a two-game losing streak for the Cougars, one of which was a 45-33 loss to Salisbury University during their homecoming game on Oct. 24. The Rowan game will be their final home game of the season.

The Owls is at a record of 6-2. They are coming off of a win against Frostburg State University on Halloween. The win snapped a two-game losing streak for the Owls.

The game at Kean is their sixth road game out of the nine games they’ve played this season. This will also be the final road game of the season, as they close out the season next weekend at home against The College of New Jersey (TCNJ).

In last year’s meeting, the Owls came out on top of the Cougars by a score of 13-0. Like this season, the game was the second to last for both teams during the season. Unlike this season, however, that game was in Glassboro, NJ, on Rowan University campus.

Rowan scored the lone touchdown in the first quarter when Dante Tobler ran it in from two yards out. Kicker Tyler Knighton kicked two field goals, one of 31 yards and one of 26 yards, in the second and third quarters.

The win was the second of a three-game win streak to finish the season with a 7-4 record. Kean, on the other hand, finished the season 2-8 and lost their last four games.

This season is different for both teams. Rowan is at a record of 6-2 on the season, and Kean is at a record of 5-3, already three more wins than they had all of last season. With a win over Rowan, both teams will have a record of 5-3 and will be tied for fourth place in the New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) behind Frostburg State, Salisbury University and Wesley College.
