The Lehigh football team lost its shot at a Patriot League title last weekend. They are ready to put that behind them this week as they travel to Lafayette for the 148th game in this rivalry.

There's no question the air is out of the bubble at Lehigh after Saturday's  first loss of the season, a loss to Colgate that cost Lehigh another league title.   But, rebounding emotionally shouldn't be too tough considering they visit their biggest rival Saturday. Lehigh travels to Lafayette for the 148th meeting in this storied rivalry.  For Lehigh, there's still plenty to play for. with just one loss this entire season and a season that's seen them in the national polls throughout, they have a very real shot at getting into the NCAA playoffs.   Of course, they have to win Saturday to really have a legitimate hope of getting in.
