Hard to predict how the cancellation of all 2020 games will affect the 2021 schedule. However I see that the Bison will be playing Army at West Point on Saturday November 13th.

Thanks, 137. Does the home game vs Penn make it likely we'll be at Franklin Field in 2022?

Hard to say. The Bison played Penn at Franklin in 2018. There was no return game in 2019, but that could have been due to a problem finding a mutual date. So this year might be the return game for 2018.

Having said that, they might originally have had to agree to a two for one with Penn, which would make a 2022 game at Franklin likely.

Thinking this has to be a glitch. This site has Bucknell football taking on Navy in 2024 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

I don't know why, but I thought Bucknell football started next weekend. I now see they lost at Sacred Heart yesterday, 21-0. You can blame the loss on me.

Next: At Villanova on Saturday at 6pm. Wildcats beat Lehigh 47-3.

You can blame the loss on a lack of offense. But we weren't alone. I think Bucknell, Lehigh, Colgate & Fordham score a total of 10 points this weekend.

Holy Cross got a nice win over UConn, but the biggest surprise to me was Lafayette only losing 35-14 at Air Force.

Sacred Heart, who won the NEC last year, returned 21 of 22 starters - and has 16 fifth year players who took advantage of the NCAA waiver that Bucknell doesn't allow its athletes to use. So the result was not surprising.

But what is more painful is that two of BU's top few players, the starting QB and their best OL, went down with serious injuries. On top of that, their best DL is out for at least much of the season and they also were missing their top WR. (Not to mention one of the top Bison WR's in decades transferring to Rutgers over the summer.) This will be very much a rebuilding season, with the huge amount of graduated talent plus the injuries.

Villanova beat Lehigh 47-3 Saturday in Bethlehem, so the chance of a Bison win this coming weekend is very low, to say the least. To stay within 30 would be a surprise.

Who is the star WR who transferred to Rutgers?

Maybe we should be more serious about getting transfers in!

Brandon Sanders, who is one of the top WRs the Bison have had in many years. He caught a pass for Rutgers on Saturday. Sanders, as a soph in 2019, caught 58 passes in nine games for the Bison.

One big issue for Bucknell, that will be an issue for four years, is the Admin's refusal to let anyone return and use their fifth year of eligibility. Sanders is not only going to play for Rutgers this year but also next year.

55-3, at least we scored, and it wasn’t 88-0! (Been there, done that)

I’d say chances are good this coach dumps Bucknell rather than the other way around.

The entire PL is terrible. Colgate, Lehigh, Lafayette, and Bucknell each scored only 3 points.
New season, new team, new dream . . .

Those four teams have been outscored 288-32 over the first two weeks of the season.

Could not have been that bad?

Have we ever been down by more than 45-0 at half??

Villanova plays at Penn State in a couple of weeks so they are in for a dash of what they’ve been dishing out. Such a talent delta in their schedule. Nova recruits hard and well for football and actively seeks transfers like their QB.

Also Villanova has 16 players using the 5th year of eligibility awarded by the NCAA. Probably others in their fifth year who are using an injury red shirt. Bucknell, of course, has exactly zero 5th year players. They are the only patriot league score not to allow any fifth year players. That will be a big issue in some sports, especially basketball and lacrosse.

No more Bucknell football on Eagle 107? Anyone know if that will also be the case for basketball?

Yes, football is definitely now on 100.9, “The Valley”. Doubt there’s much difference in the coverage. Don’t know about basketball.

As for football, Bucknell is now down to its fourth running back. Also missing three of the top four players, including their starting quarterback, their best DL, and their best OL – all out with serious injuries. Looks like about eight starters are missing. Team doesn’t have enough depth to overcome that when it comes to OOC games. P
