Two weeks ago, Lehigh wrapped up the Patriot League championship—and a spot in the FCS playoffs—with a huge win over Bucknell.

But no Lehigh season is truly complete without a win over archrival Lafayette, and for the Mountain Hawk faithful, the 2016 season is now officially one to remember. That's because on Saturday in Easton, Lehigh overwhelmed the Leopards in a 45-21 win to cap an outstanding season.

The victory gives Lehigh a 9-2 record ahead of the playoffs next week. Read a full recap of the win here. And enjoy the video recap above, courtesy of Lehigh visual storyteller Stephanie Veto.
