The Columbia Lions and Princeton Tigers square off Friday night at Princeton Stadium.

The Columbia Lions look for a big road victory to get on the board this season. Skyler Mornhinweg is completing 69.8 percent of his passes for 419 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions. Mornhinweg does have two of the Lions four rushing touchdowns. Scooter Hollis and Cameron Dunn have combined for 262 receiving yards while Ben Kaplan has seven receptions. The Columbia Lions ground game is averaging 109.5 yards per contest, and Cameron Molina leads the way with 99 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Columbia is allowing 34 points and 433 yards per game. Matthew Cahal leads the Lions with 13.5 tackles, Dominic Perkovic has 1.5 sacks and Cameron Roane has a pass deflection.

The Princeton Tigers look to remain unbeaten after back-to-back easy victories. Chad Kanoff is completing 60 percent of his passes for 451 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Kanoff John Lovett have combined for four touchdown passes. Seth DeValve and Lovett have combined for 206 receiving yards and one touchdown while DiAndre Atwater has five receptions. The Princeton Tigers ground game is averaging 276 yards per contest, and Atwater leads the way with 186 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Princeton is allowing 16.5 points and 419.5 yards per game. Dorian Williams leads the Tigers with 17 tackles, Kurt Holuba has two sacks and Henry Schlossberg has three tackles for loss.

While Columbia has gotten off to a rocky start and Princeton has looked flawless, it's not like the Lions got destroyed in their first two games. Also, Columbia is led by a decent quarterback who transferred from Florida. The Lions should not be slept on.

While Princeton continues to roll, this is far too many points to lay.

Pick:
Columbia Lions +31
