Dissecting the New Hampshire playoff streak

Durham, NH (SportsNetwork.com) - The New Hampshire football squad travels to Maine on Saturday for one of the eight FCS second-round playoff matchups. By making it into the playoffs, the Wildcats have been to 10 consecutive postseasons, the nation's longest active streak.

It's New Hampshire's 12th overall playoff appearance in program history. The Wildcats have a 7-11 postseason record that includes a 5-8 mark on the road.

Until last weekend, when New Hampshire beat Lafayette at Cowell Stadium, the Wildcats had played 11 consecutive road playoff games.

During the 10-season playoff streak, the Wildcats have notched a 7-9 record, including 6-1 in first-round games and 1-2 in second-round games. All second- round games have been on the road.

The Wildcats have not won a quarterfinal game in program history.

Despite the continuous streak of postseason berths, this year's Wildcats team will be looking to do something no other New Hampshire squad has done in the past - win two playoff games in a single tournament.

Facing Maine doesn't increase the Wildcats' odds, either, despite the fact they beat the Black Bears two weeks ago, 24-3. Not if history indicates anything anyway.

New Hampshire is 0-3 all-time in the postseason when facing a league opponent (lost to Massachusetts in 2006, Villanova in 2009 and Delaware in 2010).

On Saturday, the Wildcats hope to be the team that bucks the program's playoff trend.
