Newspaper Story Reports on Possibility of Gillette Stadium Game

UMaine athletic director Steve Abbott was interviewed for a Bangor Daily News story about the possibility of the UMaine football playing a game at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., during the 2013 season. Abbott said UMaine is negotiating to play the University of Massachusetts at the stadium, which is known as the home of the New England Patriots. Abbott said he is hoping the game will generate a buzz similar to that of the UMaine men’s hockey team’s appearance in the “Frozen Fenway” event last January at Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox.
