It couldn't be a nicer night for football at Princeton Stadium. Temps are still in the 60s. There's no wind at all. It's somewhat humid, and rain is forecast for tomorrow.

Princeton is wearing its orange uniforms again, just as it did a year ago on ESPNU against Cornell.

The hockey team lost 1-0 to Cornell in the first game of the ESPNU doubleheader.
