Lehigh vs. Colgate Prediction

I’m on Colgate in this one. The Raiders have been the class of the Patriot League for some time now and a fair chunk of that has come thanks to Colgate’s dominance of Lehigh in recent years. The Raiders are the far superior team in this one and I expect them to put a hurting on Lehigh once again in this one. Give me Colgate laying the points.
