Hartford, Conn., Oct. 13 – The Trinity College football team and its current winning streak of 25 games will be the subject of a one-hour documentary, which will be broadcast nationally on College Sports Television (CSTV). The program will focus on the Trinity football game on Oct. 1 against Williams College, which the Bantams won, 34-6, to break the New England Division III win streak record of 23 victories. The show will also showcase the spirited football rivalry between the two storied small college football powers and give a behind-the-scenes look at the Trinity and Williams football programs. The documentary is scheduled to premiere on Thu., Oct. 20 at 8 p.m. and will run again at 11 p.m. that night and several times over the next week until Oct. 29.

The Trinity football team, coached by Chuck Priore (34-9, 6th season), is currently in first place in the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) with a 3-0 record and has won 25 consecutive games dating back to the second game of the 2002 season. The streak is the longest current one in NCAA Division III football and the second-longest streak in all of college football behind the 27-game streak held by the University of Southern California. The Bantam win over Williams on Oct. 1 broke the previous New England win streak record that was held by Williams for 15 years. Trinity had beaten Williams in one of the most memorable college football games in either team’s history to end that streak at 23 games in 1991.

The Bantams have outscored their three opponents this season by a combined score of 139-6 and have been ranked No. 1 in the New England Division III Poll for the entire season. Trinity, which has won three straight NESCAC Championship titles, will play at Tufts University this Saturday at 1:30 p.m. before hosting the currently undefeated Bowdoin College Polar Bears on Oct. 22 at 1 p.m.
