Cornell to Scrimmage Colgate on Saturday

On Saturday, Cornell will scrimmage Colgate in the first of two Cornell preseason scrimmages. The scrimmages are closed to the public.

The Big Red have faced the Red Raiders quite regularly over the years with Cornell holding a 70-53 advantage in the regular season series. The teams last met in a regular season game during the 2007-2008 season. The teams first met during the 1901-1902 season.
