Ivy League Football: Week 10 Conference Power Rankings
Week 9 rattled the power rankings as we approach the final week of Ivy League play. Penn has officially clinched at least a share of the conference title, as the members of the Ancient Eight look to cement their position in the conference standings.
Here are the Week 10 conference power rankings.
1. Penn (5-4, 5-1) (Last Week's Ranking: 2)
Penn took the field against Harvard with the intention to win, and that is exactly what it did. The Quakers looked like they were in championship form in their 30-21 victory. At the very least, they will have a share of the Ivy League trophy. Cornell will definitely be a worthy opponent in the final game.
2. Harvard (7-2, 4-2) (Last Week's Ranking: 1)
The Crimson keep slipping up when it matters. It seemed by midseason that they had the Ivy League title in the bag, but recent defeats proved otherwise. Harvard will have its deep-rooted rivalry against Yale on the mind when it takes on the Bulldogs in "The Game."
3. Princeton (5-4, 4-2) (Last Week's Ranking: 3)
The Tigers returned to winning form by taking down Yale this past weekend. It has been an emotional ride for Princeton this season, especially with its fall in the conference standings after the dramatic victory over Harvard at home.
4. Brown (6-3, 3-3) (Last Week's Ranking: 5)
The Bears knew they were a contender after barely falling to Harvard in the first conference matchup this season. But after a rough start to conference play, Brown has turned it around and is poised to finish the season at a respectable 4-3 in the Ivy League.
Who is the most underrated team in the conference?
5. Dartmouth (5-4, 3-3) (Last Week's Ranking: 4)
The Big Green have had many ups and downs this season but are still not an easy opponent to get past. Falling to Brown was heartbreaking for Dartmouth, which seemed ready to join the ranks of the conference contenders.
6. Cornell (4-5, 2-4) (Last Week's Ranking: 6)
The Big Red know this is a season to forget. With all the preseason hype about the type of impact Jeff Mathews intended to have this year, Cornell has definitely underperformed in conference play. The loss to Columbia just cements that fact.
7. Columbia (3-6, 2-4) (Last Week's Ranking: 8)
Columbia had no hesitation when crushing Cornell over the weekend. The Lions were solid enough defensively to capitalize on an off day for Jeff Mathews and put the necessary points on the board to earn themselves a second conference victory.
8. Yale (2-7, 1-5) (Last Week's Ranking: 7)
Yale just needs to forget this season. The Bulldogs have had an incredibly difficult time on both sides of the ball. Tyler Varga is still the highlight of the season, but "The Game" is shaping up to be a one-sided affair.
