Beautiful day in Princeton and an outstanding performance in the second half by the Tigers on D, O and special teams. At halftime it seemed like this could be a much closer game than expected. Although the final drive of the half was encouraging, there have been very few times this year when Princeton did not get a TD when they have had the ball within 5 yards of the goal line.
But everything clicked in the second half when both lines finally asserted themselves. This was a true team win, but it all started with the run defense and pass rush in my opinion. After halftime, Dartmouth was unable to get anything going because of the D-line's play. On O, both the running and passing games kept the Big Green off balance and it was especially fun to see AJ Glass step in for Rhatigan and run so hard all game. This was a team with many weapons; Lovett has received a lot of attention, and deservedly so, but Coaches Surace, Perry, Verbit and Salgado built a deep, talented and diverse team this year that dominated every Ivy team they played except for the first halves yesterday and against Harvard.
Congrats to the coaching staff and players and thanks for one of the best seasons we have seen from the Tiger football team!
