News & Notes: This has been a rich, out-of-conference, rivalry through the years and the play has been about even, with the Gothic Knights taking 24 of the 43 all-time meetings.  The teams have split the last six games, alternating wins.  NJCU won last yea’s single game in Jersey City, 8-4.  CSI actually has a better record against NJCU in Jersey City (8-7) than they do at home against the Knights (11-16).  NJCU is used to being on the road.  This is their 9th game out of 10 to start the season away from their home field.  They are 4-4 thus far on the road and in neutral site games.  CSI is 2-4 at home this season.
