FINALLY, FOOTBALL! PRINCETON HEADS TO UNBEATEN BUTLER TO OPEN 2018 SEASON
For some Tigers, like Jesper Horsted, Stephen Carlson, and Tom Johnson, they are looking to build off some historic performances from the 2017 season. For others, the wait has been longer — injuries derailed several promising seasons last fall, including ones that never even began. Yes, the wait has been significant. But the 150th fall of Princeton Football is finally here, and this squad is ready. Princeton will make its first ever trip to Indiana Saturday to take on an unbeaten Butler Bulldogs (2-0) team that already has one of the FCS' best wins of the season, a Week 1 comeback win over #24 Youngstown State. It will be only the team's third flight this century, and the first to a site other than San Diego (though the Tigers will stay within the Pioneer League). Those — and plenty of ones below — are the details for a game these players have trained the last 42 weeks to play. They don't care who lines up against them, as long as it's somebody else. Princeton Football is back.
