Gillette Stadium is a proud home of UMass football. In 2010 and 2011 the UMass Minutemen battled the UNH Wildcats in the Colonial Clash at Gillette Stadium, which marked the beginning of the relationship between Gillette Stadium and UMass football.
Beginning with the 2012 season, UMass football entered into the Football Bowl Subdivision and has played many of its FBS games at Gillette Stadium.
Born in 1879, UMass football has since been a part of three National Championship games, taking the title in 1998. Since its inception, UMass football has taken 22 conference championships, with the most recent CAA title crowned in 2007. Some of UMass football’s most successful players have been drafted to the NFL. Among the elite players are quarterback Greg Landry, running back Marcel Shipp, tight end Milt Morin, kicker Chris Koepplin and offensive lineman Vladimir Ducasse. Super Bowl XLVI saw the face-off of two former Minutemen, wide receiver Victor Cruz and safety James Ihedigbo.
