This week, the Tigers hope to restore order at home against a physical Colgate team. The game marks the first of three consecutive home games for Princeton and will be a huge test for Princeton’s defense, which struggled in the loss to Columbia. Last week, it was the passing defense that was shredded by Columbia’s aerial attack. This week, the running defense will be put to the test as Nate Eachus, one of the best running backs in the Football Championship Subdivision, comes to town. For the Tigers to stand a chance, they will need to make stops on third downs and make the most out of their offensive possessions.
