They are the best college football team in New Jersey. Yes,Rutgers we know you are situated in New Jersey, but you aren’t. The Princeton Tigers improved to 9-0 for the first time since 1964 with a dominant 59-43 win over Yale at historic Yale Bowl.
With the win Princeton, a lofty no. 9 in the FCS rankings, improved to 6-0 in the Ivy League and clinched a tie for the league championship for the 2nd time in the last 3 seasons. A home win over arch rival Penn on Saturday, would mean an outright Tiger title.
The Yale win accounted for the most points in the second longest rivalry in college football,just 10 games short of the Lafayette-Lehigh rivalry.
Princeton led 42-14 at the half and had a game high 634 yards of offense,489 of which were on the ground. Collin Eaddy paced Princeton with 266 rushing yards which started with a 75-yard touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage.
Princeton is certainly a top FCS team,but due to an archaic Ivy rule, barred from competing for a National Championship. All other Ivy sports can compete for National Championships.
Yale,on a youth movement fell to 5-4 and 3-3 in the Ivy. They play Harvard in The Game Saturday, at Fenway Park.
