I love seeing wins like Gate 32-0 over Penn State in Hamilton. I've been watching since as an infant in the early 50's, parents took me.
Some SU wins must rank up there, the 2003 blizzard wins over UMass and Western Illinois, the shutout over Rutgers in Hamilton in front of over 10,000 people around 1980 etc. Others ?

I was at Umass and Western Illinois and Floridian Atlantic. Missed the big Penn State loss but was at Delaware debacle. Rutgers win was truly awesome.  What a great win for the boys!

Was at both blizzard playoff games in '03, unreal.  Electrifying, packed crowd at the Palace Theater in Hamilton to watch Colgate topple FAU.

And there has never been an effort to repeat that experience by the AD - for any sport - since.  Shameful.

Colgate 24 Temple 17, 1982... best game of my undergrad career.  Parents weekend, game was televised, temporary bleachers and lights installed for the overflow crowd of 4,000 (smaller stands back then!).  I was with my parents in the temporaries, Temple receiver who caught the last pass just out of bounds was right in front of us (he looked out from my biased viewpoint for sure).  That was the win that propelled us past BU in consecutive weeks, first on the road and then at home in the first round of the inaugural 1AA playoffs (played in a snowstorm the Saturday after Thanksgiving).  A great early 80's run for the Red Raiders...

I made that one too.  Chilly day.  Always remember how fast the Temple players ran to the field house after the game was over!

Western Illinois was the best game I've ever been to at any level. In terms of biggest wins, I think the playoff game against UNH this year was the biggest in a few decades because it marked a tipping point for the program. UNH has been the gold standard in the FCS in the northeast for 15 years. In previous playoff match-ups with UNH, there was an obvious disparity in size and speed--Colgate would get on a run and win the league and then get taken to the woodshed by a "real" FCS team. Last year's team was as good as or better than UNH physically. Hopefully that's a harbinger of more "biggest wins" in the near future.

It was questionable that UNH even BE in the playoffs this year given their record.  Not to slight Colgate, but we didn't catch them having one of their best seasons.  If I recall correctly, someone at UNH was on the FCS selection committee...surprise. surprise.  We can't have the gold standard NOT make their record-10th postseason playoff appearance, after all.  Glad their season - and old stadium - ended on a sour note.  UNH has had the PL's number.

Were there any away games that were monumental events, like a win at Rutgers that anyone remembers?!

I'd agree on UNH not being up to previous standards... it was still a big win for us, got the CAA monkey off the back a little bit, and the UNH fans couldn't have been nicer or more complimentary of our team.  Glad we won, but no hard feelings about UNH!

Winning the championship at Lehigh in 2012 was very sweet.  Undefeated Lehigh team that had outclassed the rest of the league, we were losing at halftime... jammed it down their throats in the second half for Biddle's last championship.  Gate fans in attendance went on the field & celebrated with the team after the final gun.  That one was mighty nice!
