The Patriot League also kicked off conference play, with Lehigh upending Colgate 20-9, while Bucknell defeated Fordham 28-21. The other two Patriot League teams were shut out in nonconference action, Lafayette falling to Hofstra by a 26-0 tally while Holy Cross was shellacked by UMass, 51-0.
The two leagues face each other in interconference play next weekend. Pennsylvania travels across the state to take on Lafayette, Princeton plays host to the Bucknell Bison, Yale is at Lehigh, and Cornell, looking for their tenth homecoming win in as many years, takes on Holy Cross. In other non-league action, Brown hosts cross-state rivals Rhode Island and Columbia is at home against St. Mary's of California.
