Ivy League Football: Week 5 Conference Recap and Results
Wrapping up non-league play this weekend, the Ancient Eight had quite an eventful weekend that included many offensive shootouts and even a huge conference upset with Princeton's shutout over Brown.
Here are the Week 5 conference recap and results.
Brown 0 (3-2, 0-2), Princeton 19 (3-2, 2-0)
Princeton's turnaround this season has fully manifested itself with a conference win over Brown. The Bears, who even gave Harvard a run for its money last weekend, found themselves completely thwarted by the Tigers defense. Brown had only 17 rushing yards in the affair and failed to put any points on the scoreboard. Caraun Reid added a safety to Princeton's efforts.
Lafayette 20 (4-2, 1-0), Yale 10 (1-4, 0-2)
Yale continued to struggle on both sides of the ball as Lafayette erased a halftime deficit to earn the victory. Leopard receiver Mark Ross had eight receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown to lead the way for Lafayette. With 100 yards on 23 carries, Tyler Varga, yet again, was a key spark to the Bulldogs offense, while Mordecai Cargill garnered 98 yards on merely 14 carries.
Monmouth 38 (3-3, 2-1), Cornell 41 (3-2, 1-1)
Cornell simply has incredible depth at the quarterback position. Without last year's Offensive MVP of the Ivy League, Jeff Matthews, the Big Red seemed primed to drop their final nonconference game. Senior Chris Amrhein stepped up and threw for 523 yards, the second largest total in Cornell history, to lead the Big Red in a shootout over Monmouth.
Is Princeton a legitimate title contender?
Columbia 20 (1-4, 0-2), Penn 24 (2-3, 2-0)
Penn has definitely kicked off the Ivy League on an impressive note, but it took a late comeback to take down the Lions. Quaker quarterback Billy Ragone passed for two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, including one in the final minute of regulation, to earn Penn its second conference victory. Lions running back Marcorus Garrett garnered 173 total yards and two touchdowns for Columbia.
Sacred Heart 27 (2-4, 1-2), Dartmouth 10 (3-2, 1-1)
The run-heavy offense of Dartmouth was completely stopped by the Sacred Heart defense en route to the Big Green's second defeat of the season. Dartmouth averaged just over two yards per carry in this matchup. Pioneer running back Keshaudas Spence gained 138 rushing yards on 19 carries and scored three touchdowns for Sacred Heart as he found no obstacles in the Dartmouth defense.
Bucknell 7 (1-5, 0-2), Harvard 35 (5-0, 2-0)
In what seemed like a routine victory, Harvard rolled past Bucknell in a game that was pretty much decided by halftime with the Crimson up 28-0. Harvard running back Treavor Scales had a hard time on the ground, but Crimson quarterback Colton Chapple was able to gather 120 yards on eight carries, scoring four total touchdowns, including a 59-yard score. Next week's matchup against Princeton will definitely be an interesting one as Harvard looks towards a second consecutive Ivy League championship.
