|Date & Time||Friday October 30, 2015, 7:30 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Harvard Crimson -7.5 -- Over/Under: 45
The Dartmouth Big Green and Harvard Crimson square off Friday night at Harvard Stadium.
The Dartmouth Big Green look for their fourth road victory in hopes of remaining undefeated. Dalyn Williams is completing 66.2 percent of his passes for 1,706 yards, 14 touchdowns and one interception. Williams has eight touchdown passes in his last three games. Victor Williams and Ryan McManus have combined for 955 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Jon Marc Carrier has 17 receptions. The Dartmouth Big Green ground game is averaging 147 yards per contest, and Ryder Stone leads the way with 249 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Dartmouth is allowing 9.3 points and 268.3 yards per game. Will McNamara leads the Big Green with 32 tackles, Folarin Orimolade has six sacks and David Caldwell has four interceptions.
The Harvard Crimson also look to remain unbeaten and have lost just once since the 2013 season. Scott Hosch is completing 61.9 percent of his passes for 1,661 yards, 12 touchdowns and one interception. Hosch has six touchdown passes in his last three games. Ben Braunecker and Andrew Fischer have combined for 770 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Anthony Firkser has 14 receptions. The Harvard Crimson ground game is averaging 201.5 yards per contest, and Paul Stanton, Jr. leads the way with 617 yards and nine touchdowns. Defensively, Harvard is allowing 7.8 points and 265.2 yards per game. Jacob Lindsey leads the Crimson with 40 tackles, Asante Gibson has two interceptions and Jordan Becerra has four pass deflections.
This is going to be a very fun football game, as both teams are undefeated and the cream of the crop in the Ivy League. While Harvard has not lost in two years, Dartmouth has hung with the Crimson over the years, which includes a three-point loss in 2013. These teams are about even in my eyes and should put on a hell of a show.
I'll take the points here.
