Football team racks up postseason awards following 9-1 season

(01/14/19 7:10am)

Looking back at Dartmouth football’s 9-1 fall campaign, there is little doubt that the team’s season was a great one. Among the team’s nine victories were a 49-7 shellacking of Brown University, a 41-18 defeat of Yale University and a 24-17 win over Harvard University, the first for the Big Green against the Crimson in 15 years. Despite the one loss (a 5-point fall to eventual Ivy League champions Princeton University), the team’s historic campaign was capped by being named No. 15 in the American Football Coaches Association FCS postseason poll and No. 18 in the STATS poll, the best end of the year finish for the Big Green since 1978. Dartmouth was powered to this success on both sides of the ball, allowing the fourth fewest yards and second fewest points, while the Big Green offense matched with 17th in points per game. These statistics demonstrate Dartmouth’s success as a team, but the individuals behind those numbers stand out on their own, and several were honored to that extent in the time since the season ended.

Examining the unexpected rise of Dartmouth football

(10/15/18 6:20am)

After being picked in most preseason polls to finish in the bottom half of the Ivy League standings, the Dartmouth football team has shot off to a dominant start with a 5-0 overall record and 2-0 Ivy League conference record, demonstrated most recently by a 41-18 bludgeoning of defending conference champions and preseason favorites Yale University in New Haven last Saturday and a 42-0 shutout of Sacred Heart University at home on Saturday. The performances by the Big Green so far have been textbook examples of offensive and defensive power. Under the leadership of head football coach Buddy Teevens ‘79, the team has averaged 38 points a game on offense—13th highest in the Football Championship Subdivision—while the 249 yards allowed per game on defense puts them fourth in the country among the teams at their level. Since the disappointing 2016 campaign, where the team went 4-6 on the year and 1-6 in conference, the Big Green has gone 13-2, and the reasons behind this start go beyond simple statistics.
