Live Stream: Surprising American Faces Down Colgate

New, 24 comments

American is out to a 3-0 start in the Patriot League despite a number of doubts about the team, while Colgate hasn't quite lived up to some preseason expectations. Who gets the best in this conference showdown?

Thanks to the folks at the Patriot League, Campus Insider and Colgate University, we are pleased to bring you this conference showdown between American and Colgate.

The Eagles were not expected to do much in the preseason after losing three starters and replacing their head coach in the offseason. But things don't always go as planned and in this case for the better when it comes to American.

Led by Jesse Reed, John Schoof and Tony Wroblicky, the Eagles have taken out Bucknell, Holy Cross and Loyola in the early conference action, putting them tied for the Patriot League lead.

They face a tough test in Colgate on Saturday, as the Raiders look to get into the win column in Patriot League play. After pushing through nonconference action as one of the top performers in the league, the consistency just hasn't been there in the early going. It is almost as if the team is still reeling after a double-overtime loss in the opener against Lehigh.

Can Austin Tillotson and Murphy Burnatowski ground the Eagles? Tipoff is at 2 p.m. right here at Mid-Major Madness.
