Lehigh Preview

The 2-2 Lehigh Mountain Hawks visit the Yale Bowl Saturday at 1:30 PM ET.  The game can be seen on One World Sports or the ILDN.  After dropping its first two games to Monmouth and Villanova, Lehigh bounced back with two straight wins over Ivy League opponents Penn (49-28) and Princeton (42-28).  Lehigh’s high powered offense has averaged 584.5 yards over the last two games and QB Nick Shafnisky leads the FCS in completion percentage (72.7%).  The Bulldogs won 27-12 last year at Goodman Stadium, but Lehigh looks to be much improved from a season ago.  Tre Moore will get the starting nod at QB this week and hopefully will be able to catch Lehigh off balance using his rushing and passing skills.  Lehigh is susceptible to the run, so Harris and Salter should have the chance to rush for 100+ yards with a decent performance from the offensive line.  Defensively, the Bulldogs will have to “bend not break” this week as Shafnisky and company can gain ground at will.  The Bulldogs need to slow down RB Dom Bragalone who rushed for 124 yards last week against Princeton and force Shafnisky into obvious passing situations to come away with a win.
