Lehigh Pulls Another Rabbit Out of the Hat, Beats Princeton 29-28

Last week, Lehigh beat Monmouth 28-25, partially thanks to a crazy blocked punt that landed behind the line of scrimmage and was caught in mid-air by senior FB Zach Hayden, which he advanced for 37 yards and set up the winning score.

After that game, I asked head coach Andy Coen whether Lehigh fans might be able to expect this type of cardiac win every week.

“Probably,” he said. “I think they’ll all be close. Some of them I hope will be close.”

On a warm Saturday evening in late September, Lehigh pulled the exact same rabbit out the hat that the pulled in the first two games of the year, falling behind 22-3 at halftime before rallying to score 26 points in the second half to beat a tough Princeton team.

We break down the Princeton game – and we give our fearless prediction below the flip.

Though I didn’t get much help from the Ivy League website, doing the Princeton preview is always pleasant because I have a network of people that make it that way.

The Big Green Alert and Roar Lions writers gave me a huge assist in making this week’s preview.  They are always huge assets when it comes to anything about the Ivy League, and neither disappointed.

And Princeton’s game notes themselves are also, as expected, top notch.  It’s a pleasure to read lead-ins like this:

There is a reason why mid-terms are in October and finals are at the end of the semester. Students do the work class after class, week after week, and then get challenged afterwards. 

Imagine getting your syllabus, having a couple weeks to do some reading, and then taking a major test during your first class. 

That’s what you, as well as a nationwide audience on the NBC Sports Network, will see Saturday night at 6 pm. The Princeton football team is walking into the classroom for the first time, and it may see the highest-ranked opponent it will see in all of 2013. 

But that is the way head coach Bob Surace wants it. After a big step forward last season, he wants to see just how far his team has come in nine months. After all, the next 10 weeks have the potential to be something pretty special. 

Princeton has waited long enough. So have you. Let’s go.

Indeed.  Let’s go.
