Princeton Hoping to Finish With Winning Season. Can They Upset Dartmouth?

The Princeton Tigers will play their final game of the season against the Dartmouth Big Green in Hanover, N.H on Saturday afternoon. The game is scheduled to kick off at noon ET.

The Tigers have lost their last two games by an average of just four points. They lost in overtime to Penn by a score of 26-23, then lost to rival Yale by a score of 35-28. Dartmouth has won their last two games and will look for a share of the Ivy League title with Harvard and Penn with a win over Princeton.

In their two consecutive losses, the Tigers put up a fight, but could not finish in either game. Junior quarterback Chad Kanoff threw for 556 yards in the last two games. If they want to pull off the upset over Dartmouth, they will need Kanoff to have another big day.

The Tigers have also lost four of their last five after beginning the season 4-0 record. With a loss on Saturday, the Tigers will finish with a record of 5-5, a season that will go down as a disappointing one.

Dartmouth struggled in their last game against Brown. Both teams combined for 13 total turnovers in the game. Dartmouth committed six of those turnovers.

Defense will be the absolute key factor in this game for Princeton. Not only will they need to force turnovers like Brown did, but they will also need to be able to stop the high-powered passing game.

Last season, when these two teams met, quarterback Dalyn Williams threw for 305 yard and four touchdowns as Dartmouth won in Princeton, 41-10. The defense can’t allow that to happen if they want to pull off the upset.
