For the second consecutive week, nearly half of the remaining field has been eliminated in the 2019 Reverse Survivor competition*, including a couple of Ivy League teams

The teams that are on to better thing:

Three teams that won games did so in Reverse Survivor-offs. With the small number of teams we have this week, there are no Reverse Survivor-offs.

Candidates To Leave The Island

Going in alphabetical order, Bellarmine has a decent chance to beat Utah. But with how the Utes have played this season, it might be a lot tougher than it looked like back in September.

Binghamton is at Delaware on Saturday. Last year, they upset the Blue Hens while Delaware was in the midst of a slump. Not a fan of the Bearcats winning this week.

Hartford has a good chance at Manhattan this afternoon, but the Jaspers are fresh off an upset of Bryant on Saturday.

Mercer has two chances against Delaware and Mount St. Mary’s. The Bears also defeated the Blue Hens last season before falling to the Mountaineers. Mercer’s best chance of a win is against Mount St. Mary’s.

NJIT played Quinnipiac tough, but fell in a two-goal affair. They host Monmouth and UMass this week. Their best chance for a win is this afternoon against the Hawks.

Penn is the best team in the field right now. But their schedule has been brutal. They’re 0-3 with losses to Maryland, Duke, and Penn State. The defeats to the Terrapins and Nittany Lions were by a goal. They have Villanova and Saint Joseph’s this weekend in the Philly 4 Lacrosse Challenge. They should get a win or two this weekend.

*St. Bonaventure is also winless, while Hampton has not won a game against a Division I opponent. 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.
