I get why Princeton’s favored on the surface, but realistically, this Drexel team is a lot better than their record indicates if you watch their game film and were right in their with their two opponents from the recent Gulf Coast showcase. Princeton has a solid record but it’s been against a relatively soft schedule and I just think that the Dragons prove to be a bit much for Princeton here. Give me Drexel and the free bucket.
