Heckuva Colgate schedule. That three-game stretch against major opponents reminds me of Bucknell's Arkansas-North Carolina-Maryland swing two seasons ago.

Must be one of the strongest Patriot League nonconference schedules played by anyone other than Bucknell for a while. And the Raiders will have substantial potential to pull an upset.

Yes, very tough schedule. The three game stretch is in the same ballpark with Bucknell's three games from the 2018 season - except the Bison had to do it in less than seven days, with a stop back in Lewisburg in the middle. You'll recall that Bison schedule also included four games with A-10 opponents, plus Vermont and a good Monmouth team. Pomeroy ranked it as the 31st best OOC schedule in the nation. No PL OOC schedule has been better, with the possible exception of the Bison 2005-06 schedule, which was ranked #32 by Pomeroy. That schedule has to get an asterisk, however, since they ended up having to play Haverford - a weak game that is not counted by Pomeroy.
