Saturday Wrap

You Saturday wrapup with a few pithy thoughts . . .

Harvard 37, Penn 20
The sense after watching Harvard was that Tim Murphy's team was the best in the Ivy League and the Crimson proved it while clinching the outright Ivy League title with a little help from Dartmouth. Stat of the game: Penn was limited to 24 rushing yards.

Yale 33, Princeton 24
The Tigers head to Dartmouth after getting 178 rushing yards from freshman Chuck Dibilio but just 9-for-25 passing for 49 yards from Tommy Wornham. The Tigers were within six points with four minutes left despite Patrick Witt going 26-for-33 for 379 yards for Yale.

Cornell 62, Columbia 41
Cornell's Jeff Mathews passed for 521 yards and five touchdowns but his most amazing stat might be going 40-for-46. The Big Red scored 55 points in the final three quarters.

Holy Cross 29, Lafayette 24
Eddie Houghton's touchdown run with 1:06 remaining capped a 97-yard drive that lifted Holy Cross to the victory and got the Crusaders back to .500.

Duquesne 29, Sacred Heart 15
The Pioneers managed just 47 yards on the ground as they slipped to .500 overall and 3-4 in the NEC with their third loss in four games.

Dartmouth win gets biggest cheer of the day at Harvard Stadium. Link (OK, it was actually Brown's loss but same difference ;-)

The Sun Chronicle has a story about Nick Schwieger after the local product led Dartmouth to the upset victory over Brown Saturday. The story begins this way:
Soon to be a three-time, first-team All-Ivy League selection - the Ivy League's recipient of the Bushnell Cup in 2010 as the Player of the Year - Nick Schwieger may not have saw (sic) this all coming when he was lining up in the backfield for the Bishop Feehan High Shamrocks.
