#Rivalry154 Game Breakdown and Fearless Prediction: Lehigh vs. Lafayette

All season I have done a statistical breakdown of Lehigh’s opponent, position by position.  As a change of pace, I’m going to do something different this week with the “Game Breakdown” and do a head-to-head comparison of both teams – doing a stat breakdown of both teams still, but doing more of a “Tale of the Tape” to compare both squads to see who might reign supreme in this huge football game.

Something that sometimes gets lost in The Rivalry is the importance of seniors on both sides.  For so many of these seniors, it’s not only their final college football game, it is also their final time wearing a football helmet and a jersey.  I’ve found that seniors find it in themselves to play the best games of their careers.  So seniors in the starting lineup are of great weight to me.

#Rivalry153 Game Breakdown and Fearless Prediction: Leopards’ Veteran D Will Be Tough To Crack

#Rivalry153 Game Breakdown and Fearless Prediction: Leopards’ Veteran D Will Be Tough To Crack

We break down #Rivalry153 – and we give our fearless prediction, below the flip.

I have always felt like these Rivalry games are first and foremost about the seniors. 

It seems like for the most part, it’s the seniors who really answer the call and compete to their fullest potential in this bowl game at the end of the regular season.  Guys like Lehigh QB Nick Shafnisky last year, who won the MVP award, or Lafayette RB Ross Scheuerman, who dominated a certain game in the Bronx that shall not be named.

When you take away The Rivalry, when you take away the emotions, when you take away the craziness, the energy – what do we have?  When you look at the Xs and Os, what do you have?

Certainly, this game, like every Rivalry game, will be dictated and informed by emotion.  You can count on the fact, as a Lehigh fan, that Lafayette will play out of their minds. 

That shouldn’t stop us, though, from looking over the Leopards and seeing what they’re all about.  They will put together a gameplan to come away with victory, and though Lafayette head coach John Garrett could very well take their entire playbook up until this point and throw it in the trash, and it’s up to the Mountain Hawks to figure out a way to stop them.
