The 149th meeting between Lehigh and Lafayette is Saturday, and it's the first time in 7 years that the rivalry game will determine which of the two wins the Patriot League title and the automatic berth into the NCAA FCS playoffs. That means there's even more hype for a game that's never needed it. Lafayette comes into the game off a win over previously undefeated Fordham, continuing what's been great play within the Patriot League after strugling mightily out of league play. One of the keys has been the play of Drew Reed at quarterback. He certainly hasn't played like a freshman, and his coaches and teammates don't think he will this week either. He's shown maturity beyond his experience.
We will have plenty of coverage of the rivalry game this weekend. Our coverage begins with a half hour pre-game show that starts at noon Saturday live from the field at Goodman Stadium. Following that, we'll have the game broadcast live as in years past. That will begin at 12:30 as the Leopards and Mountain Hawks decide the Patriot League championship.
