What's at stake: It's the Colonial Athletic Association opener for Towson, which was crushed by Maryland two weeks ago before rebounding last week with a comeback victory over previously unbeaten St. Francis. The Tigers want no repeat of last year's CAA fare, when they dropped their first five league games, including a 27-20 loss to Stony Brook. The Seawolves rallied from a 10-point halftime deficit to win that day.

Key matchup: Can Towson stop Stony Brook quarterback Joe Carbone, who passed for 165 yards in last year's game, and running back Stacey Bedell, who rushed for 125 yards and two touchdowns against Towson in 2016?

Player to watch: Aidan O'Neill, the Tigers' sophomore kicker who booted three field goals last week, including the game-winning 42-yarder as time ran out. O'Neill made two field goals against Stony Brook last year.
