Around the Ivy: PRINCETON

Around the Ivy: A look at Princeton

Coach: Bob Surace

Last year: 8-2 (6-1 Ivy)

Preseason prediction: No. 1

Opening game: Sept. 20 at San Diego 

About the Tigers: Princeton is coming off a share of the Ivy League title and is the Ivy League favorite this season. It all starts with QB Quinn Epperly, the reigning Ivy Player of the Year. He became the first player in conference history to finish with more than 40 TDs (25 passing, 18 rushing). Connor Michelsen also had success under center for the Tigers last season, so expect to see more multiple QB looks. The Lions do lose All-America selection Caraun Reid on the DL, which is perhaps the Tigers biggest concern. The Tigers return nine Ivy-League picks.

Local connections: FB Jonathan Esposito (West Hartford), LB R.J. Paige (West Hartford), OL Max Wardaki (Stamford), WR Seth DeValve (Manchester), WR James Frusciante (Westport)
