Think Orange

Last week's Compughterratings Simulation predicted a 26-6 Dartmouth win over Brown at Fenway Park. The final spread was pretty close: 33-10. Here's how the service sees the Dartmouth-Princeton game and that Other Game. (That's what they call it, right?)

Athlon has capsules and picks on what it considers the biggest games of the week and no, Dartmouth-Princeton didn't make the cut. But the Other Game did. Here's what the capsule said (LINK):
No playoff game would be bigger for these archrivals than “The Game.” Harvard is tasked with slowing freshman Zane Dudek, who’s averaged more than 200 yards from scrimmage in his last three games. The Bulldogs are a one-point loss at Dartmouth in the last minute away from being perfect.
Pick: Yale

Did you know that there was a presenting sponsor for the Dartmouth-Fenway game? Me neither. It was something called, Your Call Football. (LINK)

Green Alert Take: Never thought I'd see the day when the Ivy League would be involved with a concern that advertises that you can, "Compete for over $20,000 in total cash prizes over three action-packed weeks."
The Gwinnett Daily Post writes about 15 players from the Georgia county playing football in the Ivy League. Ross Wood, Justin Edwards and Cam Poole represent Dartmouth while Princeton has four players from the area. (LINK)
The latest forecast for kickoff in Hanover Saturday: 37 degrees, 8 mph wind and a 25 percent chance of light rain.
