URI, PC Exchange Jabs on Social Media

CBS Sports reported Wednesday that Providence scheduled a home game with Fairleigh Dickinson for Saturday, December 5th.

That’s usually the same weekend they play the University of Rhode Island, but the game was canceled this year, citing an inability to pick a date that worked and COVID-19 concerns.

The day after the news of the Providence-FDU game broke, URI head coach David Cox released a statement on social media, calling for the game to be played.

The Providence College athletics account responded with a clip from “Mean Girls”.

As of now, there is no momentum toward the PC-URI game being played in 2020. The rivalry scheduled to be renewed in 2021
