Saturday Roundup

Debate if you will who has the best team in the Ivy League. There is no debate about the best tailgating scene. There's Yale and there's everyone else. A few pictures:

Here are your weekend scores and a few pithy comments . . .

Harvard 41, Cornell 31
Backup (?) quarterback Colton Chapple passed for 414 yards and four touchdowns against Cornell, which got 322 yards from QB Jeff Mathews and had a 27-24 lead midway through the third.

Brown 20, Holy Cross 13
That Harvard game aside, Brown is very good. And Holy Cross, which has played a killer early schedule, might be the best 2-3 team around. Crusaders outgained the Bears, 373-324.

Hampton 28, Princeton 23
Tommy Wornham continued to struggle completing just 19-of-39 passes with an interception and no touchdowns but touted freshman Chuck Dibilio ran 21 times for 147 yards for the Tigers.

Penn 35, Fordham 20
Billy Ragone completed 8-of-8 passes on Penn's first drive and 11 straight to start the game to make him 19-for-19 dating back to the final drive at Dartmouth. Lyle Marsh ran for three TDs before leaving the game with an injury.

Sacred Heart 34, Columbia 25
Tim Little, the quarterback who came alive in Sacred Heart's win over Dartmouth, completed 33-of-48 passes for 371 yards and three touchdowns against a Lion team that held the ball for just 23:29 to 36:31 for the Pioneers. Columbia is the only winless Ivy.

Colgate 26, Monmouth 14
It's a little early to say the Raiders are back, but Gavin McCarney (16-for-23, 2 TDs) and Nate Eachus (139 yards rushing) make a pretty effective one-two punch.

Ivy League Standings:
Harvard 2-0, 3-1
Yale 2-0, 3-1
Penn 1-0, 2-2
Princeton 1-0, 1-3
Brown 0-1, 3-1
Columbia 0-1, 0-4
Cornell 0-2, 2-2
Dartmouth 0-2, 1-3
