Wednesday leftovers

First, check out a feature on RB Deshawn Salter coming off an impressive performance in his first start in Yale’s win over Lehigh.

And here are some more notes for the week…

Scouting Dartmouth

Led by QB Dalyn Williams, the Big Green’s offense is averaging over 40 ppg. Williams is likely the best QB in the Ivy League. He is averaging 262.3 passing yards per game and 50 rushing yards per game with a combined 10 TDs.

Ryan McManus, one of the top WRs in the league, missed the last two games with an ankle injury. He’s expected to play against Yale. He’s a physical receiver. On the other side, Victor Williams is a speedy playmaker who can stretch the field. He caught 12 passes for 213 yards and two TDs in a 41-20 win over Penn last week. 

Dartmouth (3-0) came from behind to beat Yale in the final minutes last season. The Bulldogs defense did sack Williams seven times in that game. Yale will need to pressure the star QB plenty on Saturday. Dartmouth’s defense is allowing just 77.3 rushing yards per game and has given up just 37 points over its three games.

Bone marrow drive 

Junior DT Jack Rushin became the 32nd donor from the Mandi Schwartz Marrow Drive. Rushin donated marrow to a recipient at Boston Hospital on Monday. The drive takes place each spring on the Yale campus and honors former Yale women’s hockey player Mandi Schwartz.

Varga update

Tyler Varga suffered a concussion late in the game on an onside kick against the Titans on Sept. 27. He missed last week’s game and is expected to miss Thursday’s game against the Texans.

This week’s schedule

Harvard at Cornell, Noon [ASN/ILDN]
Brown at Holy Cross, 1 pm
Fordham at Penn, 1 pm [ILDN]
Colgate at Princeton, 1 pm [ILDN]

I would hardly call him a big receiver

Yes, perhaps it should just read, "physical receiver."

I think the team that makes the least mistakes penalties turnovers wins this game.

Personally, Jon Harris, I think the team that scores the most points will win the game.
