Contact(s):  Catherine Herman (518) 956-8150

ALBANY, N.Y. (February 5, 2008) -- The University at Albany community congratulates the N.Y. Giants on their monumental victory in Super Bowl XLII, arguably the greatest upset in Super Bowl history.

As the summer home of the Giants since 1996, UAlbany will once again welcome the world champions for training camp in 2008. Fans from throughout the U.S. attend the camp each summer, and with the Super Bowl victory attendance this year could grow by as much as 20,000.

In 2007, the University dedicated its football practice field in honor of Wellington T. Mara and Preston Robert Tisch, the late co-owners of the New York Giants who were instrumental in making UAlbany the home of the team's summer training camp.

The University at Albany's broad mission of excellence in undergraduate and graduate education, research and public service engages 17,000 diverse students in nine schools and colleges, and an honors college.
