Three teams either vying for Ivy League championships or to remain atop the league standings will be featured on the Halloween edition of TigerCast.
Peter Farrell and Jason Vigilante are the head coaches of the Princeton women's and men's cross country teams, respectively, and both are leading their teams into the 2013 Ivy League Heptagonal Championships this weekend. Both squads are nationally ranked, though both will be facing at least one team ranked higher in the national polls.
The men, who are the reigning Ivy League champions, will compete first on Princeton's own West Windsor Fields at 11 am, while the Princeton women will go for an Ivy League title at noon. Both head coaches reflect on the season so far and their hopes and expectations for the weekend during their interviews.
After both cross country titles are decided, all eyes will move to Powers Field at Princeton Stadium, where the first-place football team will take on the all-time Ivy League passing leader when the Tigers host Cornell at 1 pm on ESPN3. While Cornell's Jeff Mathews has been a thorn in the Tigers' side for the last three years, Princeton junior quarterback Quinn Epperly has given defenses fits all season. The reigning National Offensive Player of the Week talks about the thrilling 51-48 triple-overtime win at Harvard, as well as Saturday's home showdown with Cornell.
