Sox Harrison Stadium hasn’t been so kind to Scott Browning.
In his five seasons at Edinboro’s head coach, Browning, 52, has compiled a 38-19 record. Two of his teams have tied a school record for most wins in a season with nine. In 2009, he led the Scots to the NCAA Division II playoffs.
However, the Scots are 14-13 at home under Browning. In his first year, they lost four home games and last season, they were 2-3 at Sox Harrison Stadium.
On the flip side, Edinboro is a sparkling 24-6 on the road under Browning. In 2008, the Scots were a perfect 6-0 away from Sox Harrison Stadium and last season, they went 5-1 in road games.
A constant in this whole thing is California (Pa.) in the sense that Browning has yet to beat the Vulcans. Cal is the only PSAC team he hasn’t beaten.
Looking at this season’s schedule, Edinboro’s home games are against West Liberty (W.Va.), Merrimack, Cheyney, Slippery Rock (homecoming), Clarion and Lock Haven.
Last season, the Scots beat West Liberty, Cheyney, Clarion and Lock Haven, but lost to Slippery Rock. They didn’t play Merrimack.
And if history means anything, the Scots have a better chance of beating Cal at its place than at Sox Harrison Stadium. They play at Cal on Nov. 5.
