During his fifth and final year at Princeton, senior captain and defensive lineman Caraun Reid didn’t have too much time to watch television – he was busy winning an Ivy League championship, training for his NFL Pro Day, completing his sociology degree, leading Bible study discussions, singing a cappella with Old Nassoul and playing guitar and drums for his jazz band. This Friday though, Reid and his family will be glued to the TV screen in their Bronx home – not to catch up on all the Homeland episodes he missed this fall, but to watch his future unfold.
This past season sophomore defensive back Matt Arends played safety for the Ivy League champion Tigers. He started all 10 games for the league’s No. 2 total defense. A proud son of Minnesota, Matt sat down with the ‘Prince’ to discuss cross-border milk arbitrage, team style and a grueling offseason schedule.
Just over a year ago, senior defensive lineman Caraun Reid made a bold decision: He would withdraw from his spring semester at Princeton, put his aspirations of playing in the NFL on hold and return in the fall for a redshirted fifth season. The potential rewards of his choice were clear but so were the risks: 10 more football games could drastically improve his draft prospects, but a letdown season or a crushing injury could dash his hopes of playing professional football.
During a ceremony held in the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City Monday afternoon, the Ivy League named junior quarterback Quinn Epperly the conference’s Offensive Player of the Year and awarded him the Asa S. Bushnell Cup. Epperly accepted the award with Defensive Player of the Year Zach Hodges of Harvard following a congratulatory speech from Archie Manning.
Junior quarterback Quinn Epperly earned six Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week awards this season and was even named The Sports Network National Offensive Player of the Week after the football team’s 51-48 victory over Harvard. His FCS-record 29-straight completions earned him a shoutout from ESPN’s Twitter and later a national video feature on the network for the Capital One Cup Impact Performance of The Week.
An online student petition asking the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students to include the football team’s captains in decisions regarding Sunday’s bonfire has received 430 signatures as of Sunday afternoon. The petition came in response to the decision not to burn an effigy of John Harvard or a Yale bulldog in the celebration.
The No. 19 football team's Ivy League championship season came to a disappointing end on Saturday, when the Tigers suffered their only Ivy League defeat of the season. After trailing 21-0 to Dartmouth (6-4 overall, 5-2 Ivy League) in the second quarter — its largest deficit of the season — Princeton mounted a furious comeback in the snow to tie things up before eventually falling 28-24.
The No. 19 football team has already clinched a share of the Ivy League title, but need to beat a tough Dartmouth team in order to win the title outright and have their first undefeated Ivy season since 1964. The Tigers (8-1 overall, 6-1 Ivy League) could also clinch the outright title if Harvard loses to Yale. The Big Green (5-4, 4-2) have two league losses, but they were both close as they only lost to Penn by 6 and Harvard by 3. The Big Green's defense has played well this season, but will have to play their best game of the season to contain a Princeton offense that averages 45.9 points per game.
The Dartmouth Big Green is all that stands between the No. 19 football team and its first outright Ivy League championship since 1995.
The football team clinched a share of the Ivy League title and brought Princeton its second consecutive bonfire with a 59-23 victory over Yale Saturday.
The football team faces the last big test of its season Saturday at Princeton Stadium, as Yale comes to town. This rivalry game, always heated, is more important than ever for the Tigers (7-1 overall, 5-0 Ivy League) this season. If they defeat the Bulldogs (5-3, 3-2), the Tigers will be one game away from going perfect in the Ivy League and winning their first league championship since 2006. In fact, a Tiger win combined with a loss by Harvard to Penn would give Princeton the title with a week left in the season. If Princeton and Harvard both win, the Tigers will still clinch a share of the title.
On Homecoming Saturday, the football team has a chance to earn its second straight bonfire. After defeating Harvard in a triple overtime thriller Oct. 26, the Tigers (7-1 overall, 5-0 Ivy League) face Yale in a game that could earn them a spot in Princeton history.
On Monday, junior quarterback Quinn Epperly was named to the Walter Payton Award Watch List. The Sports Network, one of the world’s largest sports information wire services, presents the major awards in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision, also known as FCS, at the end of each season. These include the Walter Payton Award for the best offensive player, the Buck Buchanan Award for the best defensive player and the Eddie Robinson Award for the coach of the year. Epperly joins a teammate on these watch lists for the first two awards, as senior defensive tackle Caraun Reid has been on the Buck Buchanan Award Watch List since the beginning of the season.
In an interview at the beginning of the school year, Penn President Amy Gutmann spoke to the state of Quaker athletics. The comparison to Princeton athletics came up.
The football team is in the City of Brotherly Love this weekend looking to spoil Penn's Homecoming game at Franklin Field. The Tigers (6-1 overall, 4-0 Ivy League) need to win out in order to win the Ivy title while the Quakers (4-3, 3-1) are one game behind. A win for the home team would mean at least a two-way tie at the top of the Ivy League, while a Princeton win would mean that only Yale and Dartmouth stand between the Tigers and their first Ivy Championship since 2006.
Throughout the week, Sports Editor Stephen Wood exchanged emails with Ian Wenik of the Daily Pennsylvanian about the upcoming Princeton-Penn football game. Here's how their conversation went:
