CCSU Media Guide lists three other games against Massachusetts that UMass Media Guide does not. Reason for this discrepancy is not exactly known. Series total above reflects the UMass record book. Possible that these might have been UMass Junior Varsity games, or due to the fact that CCSU was NAIA through 1964-65. CCSU games listed:

  • 1948-49, CCSU 63 - UM 39
  • 1949-50, CCSU 58 - UM 56
  • 1952-53, CCSU 75 - UM 44
