EASTON, Pa. (11/17/12) _ In the 148th meeting of College Football's Most-Played Rivalry, Lehigh beat Lafayette 38-21. The 12th-ranked Mountain Hawks scored 21 unanswered in the second half to close out Lafayette's 2012 season.

Senior Andrew Shoop took most of the snaps at quarterback, going 14-for-23 for 174 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Sophomore Zach Zweizig also saw some time under center, completing all four of his passes for 56 yards and a touchdown just days after the untimely passing of his father.
