Supercomputing: Celebrating the CCNI
The Rensselaer football team is ranked 21st nationally in the 2008 Lindy’s Sports Annuals Division III Pre-Season Top 25. The Engineers are coming off an 8-2 season in which they captured the Liberty League Championship and played in the NCAA Playoffs.

Rensselaer, which is led by 20th-year head coach Joe King, returns 35 letter-winners, including 14 starters. Of those returning first-teamers are five from offense, seven from defense, and two from special teams.

Guided by fourth-year starting quarterback Jimmy Robertson, the Engineers look to improve upon their 2007 averages of 395.1 yards per game (261.5 passing) and 27.5 points per game. The defense features the return of three starting defensive linemen and three starting defensive backs, including National All-America safety Tim Acker, from a unit that was 10th nationally in scoring defense (13.8 points per game).

Rensselaer opens the 2008 season on Saturday, Sept. 13 at Endicott. The Engineers’ home opener — the team’s last on historic ’86 Field — is Saturday, Sept. 27 against Liberty League foe WPI in the Transit Trophy Game. All of the Engineers’ games begin at 1p.m. and can be heard
live on WRPI, 91.5 FM, and www.wrpi.org.
