Game Night

The weekly Teevens Teleteaser from the Dartmouth office of sports publicity, nee sports information:

The Valley News has a story about the trials and tribulations defensive end TJ Simpson faced before and during his Dartmouth career. An interesting read to say the least. (LINK)
College Sports Journal picks Dartmouth over Columbia tonight, but not without a challenge. (LINK)
From a STATS column under the headline, Schedule tough on FCS first-place teams:
Ivy League: Harvard (4-1, 2-0) at No. 13 Princeton (5-0, 2-0)
Princeton and No. 17 Dartmouth loom large in the Ivy race, but Harvard also sits atop the standings. Outside of Dartmouth, no other team has played a closer game with the Tigers during their 15-game winning streak, with the Crimson falling 29-21 last October.
Check in with BGA Premium for Dartmouth-Columbia coverage late tonight.

How late?

Kickoff is at 6 and it's a TV game so it certainly won't be a 2-hour, 21-minute game like last week's game at Marist. It will probably be more like the TV game at Penn a few weeks ago that lasted 3:08. Or the last Columbia game at Dartmouth that took 3:09 back in 2017.
