Known as THE RIVALRY, the Lehigh-Lafayette football game is the most-played college football rivalry in the nation. The two teams first took to the gridiron in 1884, just one year after the first standardized football rules were established, and have played 157 times since.
The 159th edition of the most-played rivalry in all of college football will be on November 18th at Goodman Stadium.
Rivalry 158: Lehigh falls 14-11
The Mountain Hawks scored their first points of the game with just under five minutes left in the first half on a Dylan Van Dusen 27-yard field goal. A 13-yard touchdown pass from Perri to Eric Johnson early in the fourth quarter cut Lafayette's lead to six points as the Mountain Hawks failed to convert a two-point conversion attempt, but Lehigh didn't score again until Lafayette intentionally took a safety with 14 seconds remaining.
