Ivy League Football: Conference Recaps and Results of Week 7
Just like Week 6, Week 7 produced quite the frenzy as far as conference standings are concerned. At one moment, Princeton seemed poised to be on its way to a conference title. The next moment, the Tigers fell right back down into the thick of it with Harvard and Penn.
Here are the Week 7 conference recaps and results.
Princeton 35 (4-3, 3-1), Cornell 37 (4-3, 2-2)
The Tigers seemed to have no answer for Jeff Matthews. The Big Red quarterback lit up the Tigers for 525 yards and four touchdowns, regaining the prowess that made him last year's Ivy League Offensive MVP. A late John Wells 23-yard field goal sealed the deal as Cornell ruined Princeton's attempt at a perfect run through conference play.
Yale 22 (2-5, 1-3), Columbia 26 (2-5, 1-3)
And Columbia finally earns its first conference victory. The Lions needed a fourth-quarter rally and some help from their home crowd to lead a late charge through the Bulldogs defense. Sean Brackett, who had a career day with 328 yards and two touchdowns, found Marcorus Garrett for a two-yard score with just 45 seconds on the clock to put the game completely out of reach. The Columbia defense had a strong showing and forced a crucial safety despite the fact that Tyler Varga earned 220 yards on 25 carries.
Brown 17 (4-3, 1-3), Penn 20 (3-4, 3-1)
Brown is just making life hard on itself. Despite being able to beat a team of Cornell's caliber and battle Harvard in a contested game, the Bears fell victim to Penn, who used a fourth-quarter drive and a late Connor Loftus 35-yard field goal to earn the victory. Billy Ragone threw for two touchdown passes for the Quakers, whose secondary also picked off Patrick Donnelly four times.
Harvard 31 (6-1, 3-1), Dartmouth 14 (4-3, 2-2)
Harvard knew that it had to return to business as usual against the Big Green, and the Crimson definitely did. They reestablished the run, which wore down the Dartmouth defense. The dynamic running game was led by Treavor Scales and Colton Chapple, who combined for three touchdowns in the first half and put Dartmouth in an early hole. The Big Green, playing catch-up, went to an all-out passing approach led by Alex Park, who passed for 304 yards and two touchdowns.
