THE SERIES
This is the 80th all-time meeting between the two teams in a series that began in 1899. Columbia won last year's meeting 21-13, but has not seen a road victory in Hanover since 2001.

LAST TIME OUT FOR COLUMBIA
A turnover-plagued game doomed the Lions' to a 27-13 loss vs. Penn. Austin Knowlin totaled his second game with 100+ receiving yards, finishing with 109 yards on five catches.


LAST TIME OUT FOR DARTMOUTH

Dartmouth lost at Holy Cross, 34-14. Junior wide receiver Tanner Scott set career highs in receptions (7) and receiving yards (126) vs. the Crusaders, and sophomore Anthony Diblasi - also making his first start of the year - led the Green with nine tackles plus intercepted a pass.

MOVIN' ON UP
At Lafayette on October 10, Austin Knowlin set the all-time record for career receptions, surpassing a 25-year record held by Don Lewis '84. After Penn, he also has 2,250 career-receiving yards, which ranks second all-time. The senior wideout needs 135 yards to set the all-time record, currently held by Bill Reggio '84 with 2,384 yards in his great career.

SACK LEADER
With 11.5 sacks in his career, senior DE Lou Miller is a half sack away from the tying the Columbia career record (12, Mario Biaggi '80) .  Miller is currently tied with Marcellus Wiley '97 who compiled 11.5 sacks over two seasons as a defensive end after playing running back early in his career.

M.A. TO A.K.
Columbia senior co-captains M.A. Olawale and Austin Knowlin have connected for one touchdown through the air in the past four games. Knowlin needs just 22 yards to surpass his total receiving yards of 2008.  


HERE COMES THE RAIN AGAIN

In 2008, Columbia defeated Dartmouth in a howling-wind, rain-drenched match-up in New York.  For the 2009 rematch in Hanover, the forcast calls for an 80 percent chance of rain and a high of 56 degrees.

EASY AS FOUR, FIVE, SIX
Juniors Adam Mehrer and Marc Holloway and senior Corey Cameron rank fourth, fifth and sixth respectively in the Ivy League in tackles.  Mehrer ranks 12th nationally (FCS), while Holloway ranks 20th.
