Fun Football Facts

I've become a fan of the I-AA football website,, and came up with some of these facts from the site. Since 1973:

  • Colgate has had 42 different opponents
  • 10 of those 42 opponents are now I-A programs
  • Colgate's record against teams that are now I-AA is 180-117-4 for a .605 winning percentage
  • Colgate has winning records against 17 of our 42 opponents. Some records of domination that really stand out: 20-9 vs. Bucknell, 10-0 vs. Columbia (now you know why they dropped us), 22-7 vs. Cornell, 9-2 vs. Dartmouth, 14-3 vs. Fordham, 24-6-2 vs. Lafayette, 8-0 vs. Towson
  • Some records of dissappointment: 0-1 vs. CCSU, 0-5 vs. Delaware, 2-5-1 vs. Penn, 3-8 vs. Yale
  • Some hotly contest battles: 3-3 vs. Harvard, 17-16 vs. Holy Cross (god that feels good after losing every year straight from 83-96), 14-16-1 vs. Lehigh (we'll take a step closer to .500 this fall!), 12-10 vs. Princeton
There are plenty of other fun facts on the site, but I thought I'd highlight some of those. Only 5 months till fall camp!
