Ivy League Football: Previewing the Matchups of Week 5
As conference play resumes and non-league games come to a close, Week 5 beckons some interesting games in the Ivy League.
While some teams look to turn their seasons around, others will look towards potential winning streaks as a means to build momentum off of previous successes.
Here are the Week 5 match-up previews.
Brown (3-1, 0-1) vs. Princeton (2-2, 1-0), Saturday 12:00 ET
There is no other way around it. Princeton has had a revival in the past few weeks. But Brown is poised to spoil that resurgence. The Bears have shown, after barely falling to Harvard, that they are a legitimate threat in the Ivy League. They hope to stop the Tigers' momentum en route to their first conference win.
Lafayette (3-2, 1-0) vs. Yale (1-3, 0-2), Saturday 12:00 ET
Yale has had a rocky showing over the past three weeks and hopes to turn it around this weekend by upsetting Lafayette, who fell to Princeton last weekend. The Bulldogs have had a hard time on both sides of the ball and will need everything going for them if they intend to win this Saturday.
Monmouth (3-2, 2-1) vs. Cornell (2-2, 1-1), Saturday 12:30 ET
The 45-13 loss to Harvard was rough for the Big Red. An opportunity to take down the defending conference champions was too much for Cornell to hope for. Jeff Matthews must rebound this week and lead Cornell to victory over Monmouth.
Who will win the Ivy League match-ups this weekend?
Columbia (1-3, 0-1) vs. Penn (1-3, 1-0), Saturday 1:00 ET
Penn has had next to no luck in non-league play and Columbia is on a three game skid. Both squads look to turn things around in this Ivy League match-up. The Quakers hope that an early start will help put this game out of reach, while the Lions hope they can keep Penn off of the scoreboard.
Sacred Heart (1-4, 1-2) vs. Dartmouth (3-1, 1-1), Saturday 1:30 ET
After Dartmouth's solid conference win over Yale last weekend, the Big Green hope they can continue in a similar fashion against Sacred Heart at home. The Pioneers have had their fair share of struggles this season and Dartmouth will rely on their running game to lead them to victory.
Bucknell (1-4, 0-2) vs. Harvard (4-0, 2-0), Saturday 3:30 ET
Harvard made a statement last weekend when it trounced Cornell, 45-13, to take the lead in the Ivy League conference standings. The Crimson hope to remain undefeated as they take on the Bison, who fell to Holy Cross last weekend.
