The dream season for the KU football team came to an end Saturday, as the Golden Bears fell to New Haven, 44-37, in the second round of the NCAA Division II Playoffs. Kutztown finished with an 11-2 overall record, setting a team mark for wins in a season. The Golden Bears captured their first-ever Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) championship, won their second PSAC East title, and reaped numerous honors during the 2011 campaign. Congratulations to head coach Raymond Monica and the entire roster for all of their accomplishments.
