Ivy League Football: Week 1 Conference Recaps and Results
To kick off another Ivy League football season, the competition was fierce in Week 1 and very revealing about the identities the squads in the Ancient Eight will take on this year.
With many expected results as well as a few surprises, college football fans should have enjoyed an obvious indicator of the season to come.
Harvard 28 (1-0, 0-0), San Diego 13 (1-2, 0-0)
The Crimson were able to temporarily ignore the ubiquitous cheating scandal for a weekend with a nice start to their title campaign. Running back Treavor Scales led the way in a fourth-quarter comeback, finishing the day with 173 yards on 19 carries and two touchdowns.
Lehigh 17 (3-0, 0-0), Princeton 14 (0-1, 0-0)
Lehigh continues its preseason dominance with a third win on the season. Princeton running back Akil Sharp picked up two fourth-quarter touchdowns to almost lead a comeback for the Tigers.
Columbia 10 (1-0, 0-0), Marist 9 (1-2, 0-0)
A quality special teams performance earned the Lions their first win of the year. In the fourth quarter, while Marist prepared for a simple PAT to tie up the game, Columbia blocked the Red Foxes’ kick to claim a victory.
Yale 24 (1-0, 0-0), Georgetown 21 (2-1, 0-0)
The Bulldogs introduced a run-heavy offense on Saturday with the tandem of Mordecai Cargill and Tyler Varga, who had a combined 37 carries on the afternoon. Varga added two touchdowns and a late interception by Collin Bibb sealed the game for Yale.
Who was the most impressive in Week 1?
Fordham 34 (2-1, 0-0), Cornell 27 (0-1, 0-0)
While title anticipation started to surround this Big Red squad, opening day was definitely a setback. The Big Red fell into the same defensive void as last season and 489 yards and four total touchdowns from Jeff Matthews were not enough to win this game.
Brown 24 (1-0, 0-0), Holy Cross 21 (0-2, 0-0)
Senior quarterback Patrick Donnelly led the way for the Bears in an impressive comeback against the Crusaders, passing for two touchdowns and rushing for another in the second half alone.
Lafayette 28 (2-0, 0-0), Penn 21 (0-1, 0-0)
The Leopards led the game early and never looked back after a 21-point first quarter. The Quakers were able to cut the lead to seven in the fourth quarter, but it was a little too late.
Dartmouth 35 (1-0, 0-0), Butler 7 (1-2, 0-0)
The Big Green may have found another dominant running back on their roster, Dominick Pierre. On 26 carries, Pierre put up 170 yards on two touchdowns to lead the way to a blowout against the Bulldogs.
