Football Wins Second Straight New England Bowl

Nov 20, 2017

The Framingham State University football team hammered Curry College by a score of 48-14 to win its second straight New England Bowl at Bowditch Field on Saturday, Nov. 18. 

Sophomore quarterback Adam Wojenski repeated as the MVP of the New England Bowl after earning the honor last season as a freshman when the Rams defeated Salve Regina.  Wojenski led the Rams offense completing 19-of-28 pass attempts for 246 yards and five touchdowns and an interception, while also rushing for 54 yards on four carries.

Freshman Shaquille Joseph paced the Rams receivers with seven catches for 72 yards and a touchdown, while senior Khaneil Bruce (Cambridge, Mass.) hauled in three balls for 70 yards with a pair of scores.  Junior running back Quron Wright (Worcester, Mass.) rushed for 60 yards on 16 carries while making four catches for 49 yards with two touchdowns.

The Rams forced five turnovers, four interceptions and a fumble, in the game which they converted into three touchdowns. 

With the victory, the Rams, co-champions of the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Association (MASCAC), finish the season at 10-1. Their only loss was a heartbreaking overtime defeat to fellow MASCAC co-champion Plymouth State in October.

The football team is on a run of success that stretches back to the 2010 season. Since that time, the team has a 72-17 record overall.
