It is Week 8 of the college football season, and Yale will be playing at the E. Claiborne Robins Stadium to battle Richmond.
Both teams are currently ranked fourth in their respective conferences, Yale in the Ivy League, and Richmond in the Colonial Athletic Association. Yale started off their season strong with three consecutive wins up until this past Saturday, when Dartmouth smacked them with a defeat of 42-10, serving Yale their first loss of the season.
On the other hand, Richmond has had an unimpressionable season with a 3-3 record, They may have won last Saturday’s game against Maine 24-17, but from the looks of it, it doesn’t seem like there will be much hope for them this weekend.
When analyzing both teams, they have one similar competitor, Fordham. Richmond played Fordham Sept. 28 and lost to them 23-16, meanwhile Yale beat Fordham back on Oct. 5 by 48-24. With that being said we will see what fight the Spiders will put up against the Bulldogs.
