Sprint Football to Face Off with Army Saturday
The Princeton sprint football team will open its final road swing of the year at Army on Saturday, Oct. 20. Kick off is scheduled for 1 p.m. in West Point, N.Y. versus an undefeated Black Knight team at 5-0, 4-0 CSFL.
The Tigers (0-5, 0-4 CSFL) are coming off their second consecutive one-possession defeat, this time at the hands of Franklin Pierce, 21-14, on Oct. 12. Princeton managed to even the score, 14-14, with 8:09 left in the third quarter, but it would not be enough to propel past the Ravens. An FPU pick-six would provide the game-winner with less than two minutes remaining in the quarter.
Army is averaging 46 points per game, while holding opponents to 11 en route to a perfect record thus far. Most recently the Knights defeated Penn 35-7 in Philadelphia on Oct. 13. Marquis Morris rushed in three of Army's five touchdowns, while defensively Rob Reckner had a team-leading nine tackles and John Barnett made an interception to hold the Quakers off.
The Black Knights own the all-time series versus the Tigers, 53-3-2, shutting Princeton out in three of the last four meetings between both squads.
Princeton will conclude the 2012 season at Penn on Friday, Nov. 2 at 7 p.m.
