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.
