Cornell travelled to Hamilton, New York to take on cross-state rival Colgate University on Saturday, September 8th. Cornell was fresh off a close defeat and looking for their first win of the season against a strong Colgate side. Colgate’s side, which went 13-0 only to lose in the national tournament last spring, suffered a loss to other Ivy, Yale University 28-0 the week previous. The ensuing match was one to be remembered. A storm swirled in from the west that brought with it two straight hours of rain.
