Go Lafayette! Beat Lehigh!

The most-played rivalry in college football takes center stage this week as Lafayette hosts Lehigh at the state-of-the-art Fisher Stadium Saturday, Nov. 20, for the teams’ 146th meeting. Kickoff is set for 12:08 p.m., and the contest is sold out yet again.

After six straight seasons with a winning record and a national ranking, the Leopards enter the game in a rare position as underdogs with a record of 2-8. Lehigh enters the game 8-2, having clinched the Patriot League championship and boasting a national ranking for the first time since 2005 – primed for the upset.  Regardless of the outcome, Lafayette will still lead the all-time series as it currently stands at 76-64-5 in favor of the Leopards.

New to the rivalry this season is yet another way to BEAT LEHIGH – The Challenge.  Pitting alumni against each other in a competition to see which can rally the most donors for their alma mater, The Challenge offers bragging rights and donations to the winner.

The Lafayette Sports Network telecast of the 146th meeting can be seen live on ESPN GamePlan (DirecTV 788 and DISH Network 455), RCN-4, RCN-8, WBPH-60,, and LSN All-Access.

Alumni, parents, and friends of the College can watch the game with fellow Leopard diehards at one of the many telecast parties held around the country.
