Mountain Hawks Can’t Protect 21 point Lead Twice, Fall to Yale 54-43

The strategy was to jump to an early lead, which was exactly what Lehigh did.

From the second play from scrimmage, sophomore RB Brandon Yosha burst through the line for a 60 yard touchdown, thanks to the blocking up front by senior OL Shane Rugg, sophomore C Brandon Short, and senior OL Wenner Nunes.

But none of these players would be on the field on Lehigh’s final drive, all four felled by leg injuries.

Sophomore CB Brandon Leaks returned a pick to the house, and sophomore QB Nick Shafnisky would find senior WR Josh Parris to jump out to a 21-point lead.

But it was not enough.

On a day when Lehigh saw eight players go down to injury, including sophomore LB Colton Caslow, Yale ultimately out-physicaled and out-scored Lehigh — not only rallying from two 21 point deficits twice, but shutting the Mountain Hawks out in the final quarter to seal the win.

Game Preview: Lehigh at Yale, 9/21/2014
New Haven Register

When you Google “Yale Football”, you get to Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniaki.

The reason for that is the golf superstar and the rising women’s tennis star showed up at at Yale a few years ago.  Apparently Yale’s football team had been making a habit of showing up as a team at the New Haven Open and cheering Wozniaki on, so Caroline and her then-boyfriend Rory (wearing a Yale football jersey, at that), showed up at a practice.

Head coach Tony Reno, though, is hoping that’s not the only thing that shows up when you Google “Yale Football” after this season, which is the 100th anniversary of their football home, the Yale Bowl.

The best way for Yale to kick off their 100th Yale Bowl season would be a win over Lehigh.

Know Your 2014 Opponents: Yale

As you meander to Yale’s website, you’re greeted by an intro video when you click on the link to bring you to “Inside Yale Football“.

The video, featuring a pump-up-the-faithful talk by head coach Tony Reno, has a gothic soundtrack, panning over Yale’s 100 year old stadium, and also panning over walk of fame involving players from as far back as 1872.

That’s not going to be Lehigh’s issue, however, when they’re Yale’s opponent in the Eli’s opening-day game, where the Bulldogs will be celebrating their 100th season playing in the Yale Bowl.

Yale saw its first game played there 100 years ago, minus six days, with a team that was one of the college football powerhouses in the entire nation.  This time around, though, they’ll be a team that is picked to finish fifth in the eight-team Ivy League, and is a very young team.
