Football Season Kicks-Off Tomorrow

Ten Thousand Men of Harvard Lyrics

Note- My goal is to include a video that relates to the Harvard game being played each week- for the season opener, I thought I could do no wrong with linking to a video with the lyrics of Ten Thousand Men of Harvard.

    Harvard football is here as the #25 Crimson travel across the state to face the #23 Holy Cross Crusaders.

    Not much more needs to be said here on the blog than that- Alasdair and I talked about the game a little last Sunday, and our pregame crew will have all the big news and views at 12:30pm.

So with all that in mind, let's go around the Ivy League

Bucknell at Cornell

The Bisons enter this game 1-1, after losing by five points to Duquense on the road 24-19 before beating Robert Morris at home 26-23. Marcello Trig has 320 yards and 3 touchdowns on the year coming into the game. For his career, he has 3,505 yards and 28 touchdowns.

Yale at Georgetown

Georgetown is 0-2 and 0-2 in the conference after losing 20-7 and 28-3 to two Harvard opponents, Holy Cross and Lafayette. Yale coach Tom Williams will be making his Yale debut.

Colgate at Dartmouth

Colgate is sitting at 2-0 on the year after wins against Monmouth and Stony Brook. Both wins came at home. Dartmouth, coming off a 0-10 campaign last year, lost by two touchdowns at Colgate last year.

Citadel at Princeton

Citadel is 0-1 on the year, a 40-6 loss, but that doesn't tell anyone much, as it was a loss to a ranked Division I-A opponent, North Carolina. The Citadel had 39 passing attempts for 123 yards and 20 rushing attempts for 30 yards in their last effort.

Columbia at Fordham

It's a battle of New York as the Lions attempt to invade Jack Coffey Field in the Bronx to defeat the Fordham Rams. Fordham is 0-1 after losing to another set of Rams, Rhode Island, 41-28 two weeks ago.

Brown at Stony Brook

Stony Brook is 0-2 on the year after losing to Hofstra and Colgate in their opening games. This will be the home opener for the Big South team. Sophomore running back Edwin Gowins is set to break the 1500 yard mark in his career.

Villanova at Pennsylvania

The last time Villanova (2-0) traveled to an in-state opponent was to take on the Temple Owls of Division I-A in the inaugural Mayor's Cup, and Villanova emerged with an upset 27-24. After beating Harvard opponent Lehigh at home last week, 38-17, the Wildcats will be looking to move to 3-0 on the year against in-state teams.

Other Harvard Opponents

Lafayette (1-0, 1-0) take on the Liberty Flames (1-1, 0-0). Liberty's loss came to Division I-A opponent West Virginia 33-20, and they beat North Carolina Central last week 35-10.
