Event: Special Weather Statement
Alert:

A strong cold front will move across the area west to east through
early this afternoon. This will trigger showers and potentially
even some thunderstorms. Wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph will be
possible with any of these showers or storms along with small
hail. It`s even possible a few cells could become stronger than
this producing larger hail and locally damaging winds. If this
occurs, this will be handled via issuance of convective warnings.
The cold front will clear the area by mid afternoon but strong,
gusty winds will follow in its wake through the remainder of the
afternoon.

The weather an hour north of Princeton seemed fine, but the teams were just sent to their locker rooms due to the threat of lightning.

I assume that, informed of the game delays, your father said, "Back in my day, even if the snow was so heavy that officials couldn't see a fan line up on the defensive line, the game still went on. Kids today. What's happening to America?"

God bless your centenarian father. May he and you share several more football seasons together.

Eli hung on grimly through the first half, with three scoring drives totalling 51 yards, to stay within 24-17. But Tigers came out after intermission, stuffed them twice again including an INT, marched down for a 35-17 lead after five minutes of 3Q. Yale needs sustained offense fast, their D is crumbling. But still 25 minutes left.

Total offense after 35 minutes, P 348, Y 151.

Congrats to Princeton. I would have never thought Yale could be held to 3 points in a half.

Thought the Yale D played well.

Convincing win for Princeton, proving the naysayers wrong.

D played really well and the offense finally moved the ball and scored points. Penalties, INT, a blocked kick and missed FGs kept this closer than it should have been.

Congrats to the Tigers who can play for a title the last week of the season, which is all you can ask for.

Beat Penn!

As a “naysayer” I am surprised and happy with the win. We still left some “meat on the bone”, but Yale, too, failed to cash in on several opportunities. By I However, the Defense never failed when things got serious. They truly deserved this win.

I'm not a betting person but was astounded to see PU favored by 8 1/2. I expected Yale to be favored.

But while PU did decline to really put the game away despite the several golden opportunities, no complaints. Any win over Yale is to be appreciated.

Happy to say I got this one wrong.

Tiger D was tough

Despite penalties, blocked punt an$ FG Offense came through when it needed to.

Oddest start of a game I’ve ever been to.
Thunder lightning torrential rain then cleared off and got cool.
Frozen by end of game but worth it.

Yale QB running and escapabilty was impressive.
Will be a force to be reckoned with in the IL as he is a sophomore

Congrats to coaching staff f to rally team after last week’s disaster in Hanover

A major concern coming out of the loss in Hanover last week was whether the defense could return to form and which offense would show up in a huge rivalry game with a share of the title at stake.

It is a tribute to the coaching and character of this team that Princeton brought its A-game on both sides of the ball (kicking game was another matter …).

The defense was playing again without two All-Ivy caliber players (Stallworth and Ndukwe) but Tyler, Johnson, Wright, Beard, Jester, Stagg, Ruttlen, Forbes, etc. played lights out from the first snap. Yale has a potent offense and Grooms had been playing really well. But the Tiger defense had the upper hand throughout and shut the Elis down, particularly in the second half.

That was not a surprise to me because I was at the Harvard game and witnessed the intensity and depth of the Princeton defense.

The offense however had sputtered in its two biggest games against H and D. Yesterday, despite the loss of Collin Eaddy, the OL gave Smith time, he was extremely patient and accurate and he also picked up a lot of yardage on the ground. The play-calling also seemed more creative and aggressive and the Tiger WRs all made huge plays catching, running and blocking downfield.

Kudos and thanks to Coach Surace and especially the senior class for putting last week in the rear view mirror and turning in an outstanding effort against Yale. This team is 26-3 over the past three seasons, one more to go!
