Injury woes at QB



Yale head coach Tony Reno said all three of his quarterbacks — freshmen Eric Williams and Logan Scott, along with senior Derek Russell — are day-to-day after being injured in Saturday’s win over Penn.
Yale also has junior Henry Furman if needed. He was recruited as a quarterback, but has been playing wide receiver for the Bulldogs this season.
Reno also said practices will be closed to all media this week.
THE LAST TIME...
Yale faced Columbia, Mordecai Cargill ran for a career-high 230 yards and two touchdowns in a 16-13 Yale at a slippery, snow-covered Wien Stadium last season.
With high winds and a heavy snowfall, both teams were unable to throw and combined for just 111 passing yards.
Expect much different conditions this time around when Yale travels to face Columbia Saturday. Temperatures are expected to reach the high 60s.
HARVARD FALLS TO PRINCETON
Princeton knocked off preseason Ivy League favorite and defending league champion Harvard 39-34 Saturday.
The loss snapped the Crimson’s nation-leading 14-game winning streak. It didn’t seem to be much of a surprise to Reno, who was part of Harvard’s coaching staff last year.
"I knew Princeton was going to be a tough team," he said. "That’s what makes this league so different, anyone could beat anyone. That’s what makes Ivy League football so great."
A SERIES OF FIRSTS
In last week’s win against Penn, Russell rushed for his first touchdown and Scott connected with Furman for a touchdown, first career touchdowns for both.
