Holy Cross currently stands just a half-game out of first place in the Patriot League at 3-2, with Colgate, Lafayette and Lehigh all tied at 3-1. If the Crusaders defeat the Mountain Hawks this week, they could tie for the Patriot League Championship if the winner of this week’s Colgate-Lafayette game falls in its season finale on November 18.

Game time is set for 12:30 p.m.

Saturday’s game will be the 33rd all-time meeting between the two programs with Lehigh leading the series 18-13-1.

In last season’s game, Lehigh cruised past Holy Cross 46-14 at Fitton Field.

Holy Cross Offense

The Crusaders offense comes as the 26th best passing offense in the country, averaging 252 yards per game.

Quarterback Peter Pujals has completed 220 of his 394 passes for 2,500 yards and 15 touchdowns on the season.

His top target has been wide receiver Blaise Bell, who has hauled in 44 catches for 546 yards and six touchdowns, while Martin Dorsey has caught 37 passes for 496 yards and two touchdowns.

Running back Gabe Guild leads Holy Cross with 440 rushing yards on 88 carries and two touchdowns.
