Columbia-Dartmouth: Keys to the Game
See you tomorrow in Hanover (CREDIT: IvyLeagueSports.com)
1) It sounds like a broken record, but the Lions need to stop the run if they want to win. Milan Williams could have a monster day and might run halfway to Montreal if Columbia doesn't stop him. And Big Green QB Tom Bennewitz could become a serious problem if he tries to run along the sidelines on third downs.
2) It also sounds like a broken record, but the Lions need to establish their own running game to keep the defense more honest.
3) The special teams need to make a contribution. Austin Knowlin has been super as a receiver, but isn't making much happening in the return game. There can be no more blocked FG's or kickoffs returned for TD's by the other team.
Obviously, Hormann and Knowlin need to keep producing, but we know that that alone won't even guarantee a close game. The three keys above are all the Lions need to push for.
