Half the field is already gone after one week of the 2019 Reverse Survivor competition*, including a few well-known programs.

The teams that are on to better thing:

Only two teams that won games did so in Reverse Survivor-offs. This week, we have two Reverse Survivor-offs, with the potential of a third coming on Saturday.

Candidates To Leave The Island

I like Hartford and Quinnipiac in the Reverse Survivor-offs this week, but both should be very competitive matchups.

I can see Harvard winning one of their two matchups this week (Holy Cross and Hartford). The Crusaders have look good thus far against Vermont and UMass Lowell, so they should give the Crimson a good game tonight. Holy Cross beat Harvard last season as well.

Dartmouth has a good chance to get off the island against Wagner, but could be the third program to get their first win against UMass Lowell this season if they fall to the Seahawks. Monmouth and Mount St. Mary’s also have good chances with their games this weekend.

Penn’s the best team out of this entire field. But their schedule has been brutal so far with Maryland and Penn. It doesn’t get easier with Penn State this weekend before taking on Villanova next Friday. The Quakers should see daylight by at least next Sunday against Saint Joseph’s.

*Hampton and St. Bonaventure are also winless. But since the Pirates are still in a transition schedule that features many Division II and III schools and the Bonnies are a first-year program, they are not eligible for this season. To include those two programs in this competition misses the point.
