Last season, the football team took the field against Penn trying to keep its hopes of an Ivy League title alive, only to have them dashed by the eventual champions. Though the Tigers (6-1 overall, 4-0 Ivy League) control their own destiny in the hunt for the championship this year, they will need to beat the Quakers (4-3, 3-1) Saturday to keep it that way.
With three games left in the season, several teams could still win the Ivy League title. It all depends on Princeton, however, as the Tigers have surged back to relevance and now control their own destiny. Here’s how the Ancient Eight looks as we get set for an exciting end to the 2013 football season:
After being named the Sports Network FCS National Offensive Player of the Week and Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week following his record-breaking performance in Princeton’s triple-overtime 51-48 win over Harvard last weekend, junior quarterback Quinn Epperly continued to break records. Epperly completed 29 consecutive passes to start Princeton’s 53-20 victory over Cornell on Saturday, setting a new FCS record. With this win and Penn’s loss to Brown, the Tigers (6-1 overall, 4-0 Ivy League) now stand alone atop the Ivy League standings.
After a huge win in Harvard and having won five straight games, the Tigers return to host the Cornell Big Red. The Tigers (5-1 overall, 3-0 Ivy League) have lost three straight contests to the Big Red and will need to break that streak in order to stay on track for an Ivy League title. The game is available to be viewed on ESPN3.
The football team needed a touchdown to win. As Princeton was losing to Harvard at the tail end of a wild game, junior quarterback Quinn Epperly looked for senior receiver Roman Wilson in the corner of the end zone, and as Wilson came down, he sealed an improbable victory.
Unbeaten in the Ivy League, the football team is in Cambridge to take on undefeated No. 22 Harvard. The Tigers (4-1 overall, 2-0 Ivy League) have not won here since 2005, but the Crimson (5-0, 2-0) is more likely to be thinking about last year, when Princeton scored 29 unanswered points in the final 12 minutes to defeat its rival. Tensions will be high as junior quarterback Quinn Epperly and senior receiver Roman Wilson, the men responsible for the final touchdown of that game, face the Crimson again, and the stakes will be high as well - the winner of this game will leave Harvard Stadium with at least a share of the top spot in the league.
Earlier this week, Sports Editor Stephen Wood and Jacob D. H. Feldman, Football Beat Writer of The Harvard Crimson, exchanged emails about the upcoming Princeton-Harvard football game. Here's what they said about Saturday's game, which comes a year after the Homecoming comeback which defined Princeton's 2012 season:
The football team will travel to Cambridge this weekend hoping to repeat one of the greatest upsets in Princeton history. The Tigers won on an improbable touchdown throw from now-junior quarterback Quinn Epperly to senior wide receiver Roman Wilson last time they played Harvard, shocking the undefeated Crimson and breathing life back into the football program.
After an abysmal first quarter where nothing seemed to be going in its favor, the football team got some momentum going in the second quarter and went on to score 39 unanswered points to defeat Brown 39-17 Saturday.
The Tigers (3-1 overall, 1-0 Ivy League) will play their final six games of the season against Ivy League opponents, starting with a trip to Providence to face Brown (3-1, 0-1) this weekend. Despite currently being part of a three-way tie for last in the Ivy League, Brown has won its last two games, and its only loss this season was to Harvard, who stands atop many Ivy League statistical categories.
At 6 feet 4 inches and 205 pounds, with a rocket arm and laser-like accuracy between the numbers, freshman quarterback Chad Kanoff looks the part of a prototypical pocket passer.
Almost halfway through the season, six of the eight Ivy League teams are at or above .500, and at least half the league still has legitimate championship hopes. Here’s how the league looks going into week five:
The football team continued its best season in recent memory Saturday, pulling through in the second half to overcome Lafayette by a score of 42-26. The Tigers (3-1 overall, 1-0 Ivy League) have now scored 40 or more points in three straight games for the first time since 1950.
Off to one of its best starts in recent memory, the football team is back in Princeton Stadium this afternoon to take on Lafayette in its last non-Ivy contest of the year and its last home game before heading to Providence and Cambridge in the coming weeks. Stay tuned to this liveblog for all the action as the Tigers (2-1) look to continue their streak of offensive domination against the Leopards (1-3).
After a convincing victory over Columbia last weekend, the football team has attained its first winning record through three games since 2008 and currently holds a two-game win streak. Princeton’s (2-1 overall, 1-0 Ivy League) offense has proven that it has the explosive potential head coach Bob Surace ’90 desired with consecutive 50-point wins; however, with the toughest part of the Tigers’ schedule yet to come, how far that will take them is yet to be determined.
The football team outmatched its season’s first league opponent, routing Columbia by a margin of 53-7. This win, coupled with last week’s defeat of Georgetown (1-4 overall, 0-0 Patriot League), marks the first time since 1907 that the Tigers (2-1 overall, 1-0 Ivy League) have scored 50 or more points in back-to-back games.
The football team's Ivy League opener will be in New Jersey, where the Tigers (1-1) will look to come away from their first three games with a winning record for the first time since 2008. The Lions (0-2) have suffered tough losses to Fordham and Monmouth so far, while Princeton lost a heartbreaker to Lehigh before exploding for 50 points in a win over Georgetown last weekend. Stay tuned to this liveblog for all the action.
After a 50-point explosion last weekend, the Tigers (1-1 overall) look to build on their offensive momentum as they begin Ivy League play against Columbia. They have won the past two meetings between the two teams, including a 33-6 victory last year on the road. Though the preseason poll predicted Princeton to finish fifth in the Ivy League, a win would put them in the top half of standings.
DiAndre Atwater and Lavondre Nelson are sophomore running backs on the football team. Hailing from Atlanta, Ga., Atwater and Nelson have combined for nearly 200 yards of rushing in the Tigers’ first two games of the season. The leaders of the Class of 2016’s rushing attack recently sat down with the 'Prince' to discuss the highs and lows of their careers, weather forecasting with their knees and who has better hair.
