Seeing Red

From the Dartmouth football office:

The Cornell Sun reports that All-Ivy League running back Chris Walker, injured at Princeton, will miss the rest of the season. (LINK) Walker was Cornell's second-leading rusher this year with 282 yards and second-leading receiver with 23 catches.

From another story in the Sun (LINK):
Last season, Cornell lost to Dartmouth, 17-13, after surrendering a double-digit fourth quarter lead to drop its fifth consecutive contest and its eighth straight against the Green.
But the team has used last year’s defeat as added motivation, a constant theme throughout this season’s “Revenge Tour,” in which Cornell has attempted — and so far succeeded— to avenge losses suffered in 2016. The Red can check Harvard, Brown and Princeton off that list and is using the same fuel heading to Dartmouth.
“Last year was definitely tough losing that game,” said sophomore cornerback and kick returner David Jones. “That wasn’t a game we should’ve lost, and we kind of gave it away. We’re really harping on [the revenge tour] this week, and we really want to get that revenge because we gave [the game] to them last year.” 
Cornell's game notes are available HERE.
