Happy summer!
A STATS story on nonconference games got me thinking about who the Ivies are playing this fall. Here's the breakdown of how many games the Ancient Eight will play against various conferences in 2018:

10 – Patriot League
4 – CAA
4 – Northeast
3 – Pioneer
1 – Big Sky
1 – Big South
1 – Southern

Patriot League – Georgetown (Brown, Columbia, Dartmouth); Holy Cross (DartmouthHarvard, Yale); Lehigh (Penn, Princeton); Colgate (Cornell); Bucknell (Penn)

CAA – Rhode Island (BrownHarvard); Maine (Yale); Delaware (Cornell)

Northeast – Sacred Heart (DartmouthCornellPenn); Central Connecticut (Columbia)

Pioneer – San Diego (Harvard); Butler (Princeton); Marist (Columbia)

Southern – Mercer (Yale)

Big South – Monmouth (Princeton)

Big Sky – Cal Poly (Brown)

The Patriot League, by the way, will be playing nine games against CAA teams in addition to two games against Army, one against Navy and one against Boston College as it ratchets up the nonconference schedule.
