Only 4 games as PL play gets into high-gear, all Saturday kickoffs:
Colgate @ Lehigh
Lafayette @ Fordham
Princeton @ Georgetown
Bucknell @ Holy Cross
Another rough week for our prognosticators....lots and lots of 2-3's, a few 3-2's. Sota with his first loss, gateraider was nowhere to be seen last week, deeppurp cooled off a bit but still has a 2 game lead.
Lehigh (Lehigh is playing well and is at home, a tough 1-2 for Colgate to overcome) Fordham (from what I saw against HC, this could get ugly as the Rams look to come back from their loss last weekend) Georgetown (I'll pick the Hoya to pull a mild upset at home) HOLY CROSS (if some of the HC walking wounded can make it back, HC will win at home. If not, next man up!).

Lehigh-- I've been thinking that Colgate has a good team, but it is 1-3 with the only win a 55-13 slaughter of a woeful Yale team. Colgate played Richmond tough, but getting outscored 27-7 in the second half in a home game versus Cornell makes Colgate suspect. Lehigh has won three straight over Penn, Princeton, and the aforementioned patsies at Yale, outscoring those three 154-91.
Fordham- The Rams led Monmouth 27-13 at the half and Edmonds got the 200 yards some predicted (and 4 TD's) but Fordham managed to lose in OT. Monmouth is better than I thought. Lafayette is not strong and has been giving up 191 yards per game on the ground and we can project Edmonds to exceed that on his own
Princeton-- I wanted to give Georgetown a chance as the Hoyas are 3-1, but the wins have come over Davidson (38-14, yes, but Davidson is lowest rated team in 1AA) Marist and Columbia. Columbia outgained Georgetown 314 yards to 195 in losing 14-17 in DC. Princeton outgained Columbia 439 to 272 yards in winning 48-13 in NYC.
Holy Cross- The Cross won without Peter Pujals and must have increased confidence. I think our play calling has improved. I like our chances at Fitton Field versus the Bison
