The Princeton Tigers improve to 4-1 on the season after an incredible 53-0 over the Brown Bears last week. The Tigers are unbeaten on the road and have won six of their last seven road games dating back to 2016.
Chad Kanoff leads the Tigers offense as he is completing 73.9 percent of his passes and has run for 1,464 yards, 15 touchdowns, and five interceptions thus far. He made nine touchdown passes in his last three games. The receiving game is on the shoulders of Jesper Horsted and Stephen Carlson, both of whom have combined for 911 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns. The ground game is led by Charles Volker with 379 yards and six touchdowns.
Defensively, Princeton needs to work a little as it is giving up 18.4 points and 337 yards per game. Thomas Johnson has taken the Tigers’ defense at full strength making 36 tackles so far.
All the Tigers needs to do on Friday against bitter rivals Harvard is to stick with the same strategy which made them win past three games and focus on the special teams a little more.
3rd in Ivy League, Crimson is going 3-2 on the season and yet to lose at home this season. They have won six of their last seven home outings.
Jake Smith is the driving force of the Harvard offense and has completed 57.1 percent of his passes running for 527 yards with two touchdowns, and four interceptions. Adam Scott and Justice Shelton-Mosley lead the receiving end combining for 361 receiving yards on 29 catches. The ground unit is averaging 188.2 yards per game and is lead by Charlie Booker who has 496 yards and five touchdowns to his name thus far.
Harvard holds an edge over the Tigers on the defensive side of the ball as the unit is allowing 14.8 points and 292.8 yards per game. The combination of Luke Hutton, DJ Bailey, and Devin Judd is doing wonders for Crimson and they hope to stop the hotshot Tigers’ offense on Friday night.
