Lehigh At Holy Cross Game Breakdown And Fearless Prediction: Wading Into Uncharted Territory

We break down the Holy Cross game - and we give our fearless prediction below the flip.

It's often said that preseason publications aren't worth the paper they're printed on, and almost unusable when the actual regular-season matchup comes around.

They're a team that hasn't made the jump - yet - but could, playing Lehigh at home, poach the Mountain Hawks.

It's a game I have circled on the calendar.
