Dartmouth was tested early with a road game against a top-25 team, and that should have them well prepared for a home contest against a decent Fairfield squad. It's a toss-up game and both teams have guys who can takeover, but I give the edge to Darmouth because its at home and already had a true test this year, while Fairfield simply beat up on Sacred Heart.
