Here are the Week 3 Monday Notes following Princeton’s Ivy League-opening win over Columbia:

• You can watch the Monday Rewind highlight video here.

• Senior quarterback Chad Kanoff was named the GoPrincetonTigers.com Athlete of the Week, presented by Suburban Transit, following his brilliant performance against Columbia. Kanoff completed 21 of 25 passes (84%) for 230 yards and three touchdowns in the 48-13 win over Columbia. He had touchdown passes to three different receivers, including a 26-yard strike to Trevor Osborne for the go-ahead touchdown. That pass marked the second straight season that Kanoff and Osborne have connected on the game-winning touchdown pass over Columbia.

• Tight end Scott Carpenter, one of three players to catch a Kanoff touchdown pass Saturday, was recently named a semifinalist for the prestigious William V. Campbell Trophy, one of the top scholar-athlete honors in college football. Candidates for the award must be a senior or graduate student in their final year of eligibility, have a GPA of at least 3.2 on a 4.0 scale, have outstanding football ability as a first team player or significant contributor and have demonstrated strong leadership and citizenship. The class is selected each year by the NFF Awards Committee, which is comprised of a nationally recognized group of media, College Football Hall of Famers and athletics administrators.
