Saturday Stuff

A couple of notes from Athlon (written by Craig Haley of STATS):

• From a list of the Top 25 Conference games this fall:
12. Penn at Harvard (Nov. 11) - The Ivy League title may not be at stake … er, never mind, one or both of these Ivy League powers have been a part of 10 straight championships.
(No other Ivy League game was mentioned, including THAT one.)

And . . .

• From a list of the Top 10 receivers in the FCS:
4. Justin Watson, Penn, WR (Sr., 6-3, 210) For two straight seasons, Watson has led the Ivy League in receptions, receiving yards and touchdown catches, including a 74-1,082-9 line last year. Watson’s statistics are impacted by Ivy teams playing only 10 games per season, but his career average of 6.83 receptions per game tops all active FCS players.
(No other Ivy Leaguer was mentioned.)

The Athlon series also featured the top running backs in the nation. No Ivy Leaguers made the cut.

This weekend Dartmouth will try to recapture the Collegiate Rugby Championship it won in 2011 and 2012. (Big Green players are featured in the video above.) Dartmouth plays Temple today at 10 a.m., Boston College at 12:20 p.m. and St. Mary's at 4:33 p.m., the last on NBC (if I'm reading the schedule correctly).
