Ivy League Football: Previewing the Matchups of Week 4
With the Week 4 preparations, conference play continues as some of the members of the Ancient Eight wrap up their non-league tours.
This weekend, we are treated with a matchup that might actually determine who wins the Ivy League Championship; as Jeff Matthews and Cornell travel to Cambridge to take on the defending champions Harvard.
Here are the Week 4 game previews.
Dartmouth (2-1, 0-1) vs. Yale (1-2, 0-1), Saturday 12:00 ET
Both the Big Green and the Bulldogs had a disappointing start to Ivy League play. Now they both have an opportunity to turn it around. Both offenses feature a run-heavy playbook so this matchup has a gritty look to it already; whoever can win the trenches will take this game.
Columbia (1-2, 0-1) vs. Lehigh (5-0, 1-0), Saturday 12:30 ET
After Columbia's crushing loss to Princeton last weekend, the Lions make the trip out to Lehigh where they will face the undefeated Mountain Hawks, who took down Princeton 17-14 at the beginning of the season.
Lehigh will look to do the same to Columbia.
Brown (2-1, 0-1) vs. Rhode Island (0-4, 0-2), Saturday 1:00 ET
In the annual Governor's Cup, the Bears will travel down and take on Rhode Island in a rivalry-filled matchup. The Rams have had a rough start on both sides of the ball this year and are coming off a 48-8 beat-down at the hands of Bowling Grown.
Brown will look to continue its streak of solid play.
Which squad will win "the Ivy League Championship Game?"
Cornell (2-1, 1-0) vs. Harvard (3-0, 1-0), Saturday 1:00 ET
This has the making of a shoot-out between the pass-heavy offense of Jeff Matthews and the Big Red, and the dynamic offensive duo of Treavor Scales and Colton Chapple of the Crimson.
In what most would assume as the Ivy League Championship Game, everything is on the line in this conference matchup making this the must-watch game of the week.
William & Mary (1-4, 1-2) vs. Penn (1-2, 1-0), Saturday 3:30 ET
Penn turned their season around last weekend with a 28-21 conference win over Dartmouth. William & Mary has struggled throughout the first few weeks of the season, but put up a 35-3 win over Georgia State for their first Colonial win of the season.
This match will be pretty telling of Penn's abilities if they can pull out with their second win of the season.
Princeton (1-2, 1-0) vs. Lafayette (3-1, 1-0), Saturday 6:00 ET
Princeton shocked the Ivy League last weekend with a 33-6 win over Columbia. Lafayette dropped their first game of the season last weekend to Robert Morris by three. The Leopards also beat Penn 28-21 in the Quakers' season opener.
The Tigers will try to continue on the momentum of last week as they attempt to win their second game of the season.
