CUA to Play in ECAC Southeast Bowl

Former CUA quarterback Kevin Ricca and his brother Keith, the current quarterback for the Cardinals

CUA's football team will play Johns Hopkins University in the Eastern College Athletic Conference Southeast Bowl on Saturday, Nov. 22, at noon in Baltimore.

The Cardinals finished the regular season with eight wins and two losses. This will be the first time the team has faced Johns Hopkins (also 8-2) since 1990. Since 1947, the teams have met on the field seven times. The Cardinals have won three of those games and tied once.

Saturday's game will be the last for CUA quarterback Keith Ricca, who surpassed 11,000 career passing yards in this past weekend's game against Bridgewater College. During the season, Ricca was named player of the week for the Old Dominion Athletic Conference three times and to the team of the week after his 530-yard, five-touchdown day against Guilford College on Nov. 8.
