FOUR-DOWN FRIDAY: Yale at Colgate
New-look offense: The Bulldogs have several players that have been waiting patiently for their turn. Well, that time is now. Can players like RB Candler Rich, and WRs Mike Siragusa and Myles Gaines step in and keep Yale's offense as one of the premier high-powered attacks in the FCS?
Hines hype: There may not be a more intriguing player come Saturday than WR Bo Hines. This is a player that thrived in the ACC as a true freshman last season and led North Carolina State in receiving. Yale will need his explosiveness and big-play capability.
Weather factor: Temperatures are expected to be in the 80s in Hamilton, New York, on Saturday. Keep an eye on how the combination of Yale's high-paced play and the heat affect Colgate, especially late in the game. That's something that played a key role in Yale's victory over Army last season.
Season openers: Sure, Colgate has a pair of games under its belt against two strong programs in Navy and New Hampshire, and that may be an advantage for the Red Raiders. But despite the late start, Yale has won its last eight season openers and is 121-18-2 overall in them. The Bulldogs haven't lost an opener since 2006 against San Diego.
