Ivy QBs On Watch List

Four Ivy Leaguers have been named to the College Football Performance Awards Quarterbacks Watch List. Can you name them?

Here are some clues.

1)  One deserves to be among the favorites coming off last season.
2)  Two had terrific sophomore years but struggled a bit last fall.
3)  One will be in his first year as his team's regular starter.

Give up?

1) Cornell's Jeff Mathews
2) Columbia's Sean Brackett and Penn's Billy Ragone
3) Harvard's Colton Chapple

Those are the only quarterbacks Dartmouth will see who are on the early list. Colgate's Gavin McCarney, who impressed on Memorial Field last fall in the final game of the series with the Raiders, is also on the list.

Find the full Watch List here.

The Big Green returns to the field this afternoon for the final practice before Saturday's spring, uh, game (?). Coverage tonight on BGA Premium.
