Senior quarterback Quinn Epperly will lead Princeton at home against Harvard this week in a match-up of two of the three teams that remain unbeaten in Ivy League play. A dynamic Dartmouth squad surprised Yale in New Haven last weekend to stay even with Epperly’s Tigers and Hempel’s Crimson.
The truth will come out over the next five weeks, starting Saturday when Harvard travels to Princeton. But the full diagnosis might not be clear until the final week of the year. The Ancient Eight schedule sets up for as much drama as any primetime show on FOX, writes columnist Jacob D.H. Feldman.
Running back Paul Stanton and the Harvard ground game will face one of the country's most successful rush defenses at Princeton on Saturday.
Because for the last two years, it’s been all about game six: Princeton. In each season, the Tigers defeated the Crimson, blemishing its then-undefeated record.
Junior tailback Paul Stanton, shown here in earlier action, dashed for a 43-yard score to give the Crimson a 17-0 lead over Lafayette at halftime.
Junior wideout Andrew Fischer led the receiving corp with 107 yards, including a 78-yard catch-and-dash to put the Crimson on the board first against Lafayette.
Third down was not the charm for the Harvard football team on Saturday.
Two big plays from junior receiver Andrew Fischer and one from junior running back Paul Stanton have the Harvard football team up 17-0 over Lafayette at halftime.
The matchup with Lafayette will be Harvard’s final non-conference matchup, and more importantly, the final tuneup before the squad heads into the bulk of Ivy season.
Zack Hodges's (99) record-breaking sack was one of the few highlights of an abysmal first half for both sides last Saturday afternoon at Soldier's Field, writes columnist Jacob Feldman.
Jacob D.H. Feldman can't write a good sports story.
Senior defensive end Zack Hodges notched 2 sacks against Cornell to move him into sole possession of the Harvard record.
Senior running back Andrew Casten enters the end zone for the game's final touchdown late in the fourth quarter. Harvard rattled off 24 points in the second half to defeat visiting Cornell.
After a dismal opening two quarters, Harvard rediscovered its offensive firepower in the second half and scored on four of its five drives.
Buoyed by strong defensive play all game long that held the Big Red scoreless for 56 minutes, Harvard ultimately had enough to overcome its early struggles and earn its second conference victory of the season.
