One To Go

Harvard at Yale 12:30 p.m. (NBC Sports Network)
Brown  at Columbia, 1 p.m. (Ivy League Network)
Cornell at Penn, 1:30 p.m. (Eleven Sports/ILN)
Princeton at Dartmouth, 1:30 p.m. (ILN)

Green Alert Take: As I wrote on BGA Premium yesterday . . .
The Ivy League really should have one league-wide start time for the final Saturday of the season. The Yale-Harvard game kicks off at 12:30 p.m., a half hour before Columbia-Brown and a full hour before Dartmouth-Princeton. If Yale jumps out to a big early lead it will take a lot of the fun out of the Dartmouth and Columbia games, both for the players and the fans. If Yale loses the Bulldogs and their fans will be stuck watching scores out of Hanover and New York City to see if they have to play nice and share. ... Granted, it’s a lot easier to check on scores via the Internet than it was the last time there was a three-way tie, but the excitement won’t be anywhere near as great as if the games kicked off concurrently.
The Dartmouth has a recap of the Big Green's win over Brown at Fenway Park HERE and the Brown Daily Herald has a writeup HERE.
There are video highlights available from the Dartmouth-Brown game on the Ivy League Network but I refuse to post a link when they continue to make me watch a 30-second commercial only to come up and report that the video can't be played on my device. For what it's worth, I can watch them on my device if I switch browsers.
