The Bearcats add Cornell to the schedule after a two-year hiatus.

Let’s check out some notable games on this schedule:

Best Nonconference Game: @ Syracuse

Revenge will be on the mind for the Bearcats, who lost a heartbreaker to the Orange in the Carrier Dome last year. They lose Tom Moore, Garrett Waldron, and Tanner Cosens to graduation, so there might be some bumps in the road to start the season.

Best Conference Game: vs. Stony Brook

The Seawolves are usually a consistent team. They’re not a top 10 or 15 team usually, but they have made an appearance or two in the top 20 for the past two years. They played the Bearcats to overtime last year, where Binghamton won it in the extra frame.

Under The Radar Game: @ Hobart

Not many people are thinking about Hobart as a contender in the NEC. But they should be taken seriously, especially with the possibility that the Bearcats might have to play them outside at Boswell Field in Geneva in early March. Just hope it’s not snowing.

Possible Upset: @ Hartford

The Hawks were pretty bad in their defense of the America East championship, but they lost to Binghamton by only a goal a year ago. This game is in Hartford and even though they lose Jaedon Henderson at midfield, extra possessions might be a key in this game, thanks to the talent of Dylan Protesto.
