The latest offensive revolution in college football may be underway in an unusual place: the Ivy League.
Princeton has jumped out to a 7-1 start this season (including 5-0 in conference) and is averaging more than 44 points per game, all while employing an offense that is piquing the interest of backup quarterbacks everywhere.
Junior Quinn Epperly is the team’s No. 1 signal caller, but head coach Bob Surace runs one package in which three QBs — Epperly, Connor Michelsen and Kedric Bostic — all line up in the backfield at the same time.
Epperly is the unquestioned engine of the offense, throwing five touchdowns and rushing for five more in the last two weeks alone, but the newfangled Wildcat — the “Tiger,” maybe? — provides an unusual wrinkle that most teams just aren’t prepared for.
That was the case two Saturdays ago, when Epperly and Co. put up 605 yards of total offense in a 53-20 rout of Cornell. Check out some highlights from that game in the video below, with a helmet sticker to Smart Football.
