After Georgetown’s close defeat at the hands of Yale, the Hoyas will travel to New Jersey for a Friday night under the lights matchup against the Tigers. While Princeton desperately hopes to turn things around, Georgetown intends to get back on its winning form with a victory here.
Fordham (2-1, 0-0) vs. Columbia (1-0, 0-0), Saturday 12:30 ET
While the Rams upset Jeff Matthews and Cornell in an offensive shootout last weekend, Columbia started the season with a solid defensive performance in a victory over Marist. If the Lions can challenge Fordham, they might start conference play as an under-the-radar contender.
Dartmouth (1-0, 0-0) vs. Holy Cross (0-2, 0-0), Saturday 1:00 ET
The Big Green exploded in the first game, destroying Butler 35-7 with their formidable rushing attack. Against the Crusaders, Dartmouth will not be able to run the ball with similar success, but could end up with a surprise second win of the season.

Which two teams with start off Ivy League play with a win?
Yale unveiled its running back duo of Mordecai Cargill and Tyler Varga in its solid opening victory at Georgetown. Cornell, on the other hand, has a passing game under quarterback Jeff Matthews that can absolutely obliterate opponents. This will be an interesting kickoff to conference play.
Villanova (2-1, 0-0) vs. Penn (0-1, 0-0), Saturday 3:30 ET
The Wildcats have two key victories under their belt against Fordham and Rhode Island as they take on the Quakers who opened up their 2012 campaign with a crushing loss at the hands of Lafayette. Penn will need to turn things around against a strong Villanova opponent before Ivy League play begins for them.
Harvard (1-0, 0-0) vs. Brown (1-0, 0-0), Saturday 4:30 ET
To start Ivy League conference play, both the Crimson and the Bears seem to be at the top of the division as far as talent goes. Look to Harvard running back Treavor Scales to see a lot of the football in this matchup as he will try to wear down a strong Bears defense, particularly in the secondary with defensive back A.J. Cruz. This will be a key game to watch.
