Princeton and Lehigh are about 20Updated minutes away from kickoff. It's extremely humid in Princeton, but the rain hasn't been more than a mist at any point all day. Waiting for the first appearance of the Princeton band, who had so much excitement a week ago at the Citadel. The band's performance this weekend will not refer to what happened in Charleston.
