UMass tried this at Gillette, and it hasn't really worked. Maybe Fenway would be different. They did do one game there in 2017, but the Fenway Gridiron Series has shifted into a bowl game...I think URI football would benefit from playing 1 home game a year at Tidewater. Similar to Holy Cross's relationship with Polar Park. URI needs as much exposure as it can get in order to stay competitive in football. The arms race continues in college football, and the state flagship's in New England are getting left in the dust. URI's home field- Meade Stadium needs serious upgrades, but that is another conversation.
