    Ivy League: The Final Week for 2021

    OK, weeks go by so fast. When will the Ivy champion join the playoffs or replace the MEAC in the Celebration Bowl? Within my lifetime? (I'm turning 32 Thanksgiving weekend)

    Dartmouth at Brown
    Harvard at Yale - what's with the Elis ATM?
    Princeton at Penn
    Columbia at Cornell - Archer is canned after this game.
    If the NCAA eventually splits up or implodes itself, will Ivy League football be lost in transition, along with some of our FCS brethren?

    I agree with these picks.

    And Iíd be surprised if the Harvard-Yale crowd exceeds 45K, and it might be thousands less. Itís a battle for third place.

    Dartmouth
    Yale
    Princeton
    Cornell

    My early guess for Harvard- Yale is 40k. When was the last time Yale and Harvard played at the Bowl and, one or the other didn't control their own destiny?

    To answer your question, it might have been 2011. Harvard went undefeated in league play and had clinched the title the week before. Harvard beat Yale at the Bowl that year, but the Bulldogs ended up in a tie for second with three league losses.

    Thanks to those zebras at the Princeton game, thatís right. But, hey, Harvardís had a better year than its 2019 collapse. Looking forward to a good Game next week!

    If Dartmouth *and* Princeton both lose their games on Saturday, then the winner of the H-Y game will get a share of the title.

    If Dartmouth or Princeton lose, then the winner of the H-Y game gets a tie for second.

    I do agree that it is highly likely that the H-Y game will indeed be for third place.
