•STATS has a story under the headline, Will these six FCS teams overcome poor starts? One of the six is 0-4 Colgate, which helps Dartmouth open the home season Saturday night. From the story:
Big Picture: The non-league schedule has been much too tough and that includes another likely loss at Dartmouth. Come Oct. 5, the Raiders can reclaim the favorite's role in the Patriot League, although in a shaky way. The defense isn't nearly as smothering as last season, especially in stopping the run. With that said, the offense deserves a ton of blame, too, and No. 1 quarterback Grant Breneman isn't fully healthy (he should be back for league play). The Raiders have to play on the road against the second (Holy Cross) and third (Georgetown) choices in the league's preseason poll.

•This is a fun one for us. One of That Certain Penn State '16's best friends, a Hanover High classmate and center fielder on their baseball team, dethroned the 19-day Jeopardy champion on last night's episode. Gabe Brison-Trezise. The son of Dartmouth professor Susan Brison, Gabe told host Alex Trebek during the introductory segment about living in Doctor Seuss' house, and how Theodor Geisel came to use the pseudonym Dr. Seuss. The Valley News has a story about Gabe's big win, which he clinched by correctly answering Final Jeopardy, HERE.
