Week 5 Dartmouth opponent Central Connecticut State opened its season last night with a 20-14 home loss to Lehigh. The Mountain Hawks built a 17-0 lead in the first half and were up, 20-7, until the Blue Devils scored late in the fourth quarter.
Lehigh had 23 first downs to Central Connecticut's 14, and outgained the home team, 445 yards to 274.
For a little perspective, Lehigh was chosen to finish fifth in the seven-team Patriot League after struggling to a 3-8 record. Central Connecticut was picked sixth in the seven-team Northeast Conference after finishing 3-9 a year ago.
