What to Know

Rhode Island and Ohio are opening their 2019 seasons against one another at 2 p.m. ET on Saturday at Peden Stadium. While Rhode Island was not exactly top dog last season, they did wrap up the year with a winning record of 6-5. Meanwhile, Ohio ended up 9-4 last year and capped things off with a win over San Diego St. in the Frisco Bowl, so they are on the hunt for another strong season.

A couple last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Rhode Island threw only ten interceptions last season, the 31st best among all teams in the nation. But Ohio snagged 16 interceptions last season, the 16th most in the nation. These opposing strengths should make for an exciting matchup.

The Rhode Island sideline is surely aware that they're the underdogs in this one. Perhaps they'll be able to flip the script and come out with a big win.
