Talk about two, evenly matched teams! After taking the crown away from Lehigh on their turf in 2012, you knew this would be a battle of heated rivals. Had the feeling whichever team had the ball last would win. At the half, knew this would be an offensive battle. So much pressure to score on every play in the red zone. One missed extra point could have killed us...props to Bowman under pressure! Don't understand why our FG is so poor?!

A few turning points in the game: have said before that 'Gate needs to score on its first possession in each half, and we did. This was crucial since we lost the coin toss. We were able to use our first, true defensive stop when Lehigh started the 2nd half, marched down field, and went for it on 4th down and 3 at the Colgate 6 but was stopped! The Colgate sidelines were pumped! The Colgate turnover by Russell was disastrous...but their muffed punt return was sweet and led to a Colgate score of our own!

Why Lehigh didn't run Bragalone from 5 yards out with the game he was having was questionable. Perhaps it was b/c our pass defense was terrible and they thought their tall receiver Pelletier would make the grab. It was a bit surprising that Shafinsky's throws were so off in the last seconds. Looking at the video, had a wide-open player in the endzone.

What more can you say about Afriyie, Field and Buttermore on D?! Will Wilkins return? How serious is his injury?

Coach Hunt looked completely giddy. He is modest and proud of his staff and players. No doubt he will get PL COTY!

Agree that attendance was pathetic. Where was the band?

Lastly, is it me or has the feel of the PL changed? Fordham and Lehigh have running backs (Edmonds - only a sophomore, dammit - and Bragalone, only a freshman!) that steal the show. This used to be a Colgate hallmark and now other teams finally see the value in the running game. It is now no longer just Colgate's bread and butter.

HC and Gtown have had some impressive games to end the season. Kudos to the Hoyas without scholarships and holding their own. We were lucky to get the W against both of them. Let's hope Bucknell does not play spoiler! Thought the Bison would have a better season after their performance last year (8-3). Even Coach Hunt commented about beating them last season in our final game and to end on a high note. The 1-pt loss to Yale and loss to 8-1 Navy do not look so bad now!

Congrats to all! Can't wait for Saturday!

Such a different vantage point from the field after the game. The players are just huge! Ending was a classic, just like our 28-27 win over HC in the snow! Loved the tweet by Dick Biddle! A new winning era has begun.

gate, - Bragalone was not in the game at the end. Injured?
You really need to add Kyle Diener to your list of defensive stalwarts. He is key in the defense. Wilkins was 100% at the start and neither was Holland. Wilkins was hurting on the sideline. Attendance was not great but the weather was ominous for sometime before the game and I'm sure that turned off many. The band was at the hockey game against Cornell. BTW, it dumbest move ever to have the Lehigh game on the same day as the Cornell game. Lehigh has had several good RB's in the past. Hunt will get and deserves the PL COY.
