This will be the 93rd meeting between the two schools with Yale owning a 70-20-2 series advantage and has won 12 of the last 14 games. In last year’s game, the Light Blue posted a 31-23 win over Columbia at Wien Stadium.
The Lions are on their way to their best season in school’s history as they improved to 6-0 for the first time since 1996 after a 22-17 victory at Dartmouth last Saturday. Credit for the win goes to Columbia’s defense that made two key stops in the game’s final three minutes to seal the win.
Senior quarterback Anders Hill gave a career-high tying performance for going 27 in 35 attempts for 298 yards and a TD. Hill has now thrown a touchdown pass for the 10th straight game. Another player who stood out in the win was sophomore wide receiver Josh Wainwright, who posted new career-high 11 receptions running for 99 yards.
Columbia is well composed both offensively and defensively thus far and will be at crossfire against Yale on Saturday, a team, to which they have lost 12 of the last 14 games.
Yale improved to 5-1 in the season when Kurt Rawlings made a four-yard pass play to Christopher Williams-Lopez in the final moments of the game for a come from behind 24-19 win over Penn last week at Franklin Field.
The Bulldog defense is doing a exceptional job, led by senior linebacker Foyesade Oluokun the unit held Penn to 297 total yards last week. The unit will be looking forward to Saturday’s game against the Lions to prove that they are best on the season.
The offensive line is led by seniors Jon Bezney and Karl Marback. Both have helped the Dark Blues rank among the best in the nation in total offense and scoring in the season. Saturday’s game brings a strong test for the duo.
