Harvard Tops Brown In Football Poll
This week's Associated Press New England Football Poll was probably not a tremendous boost for the ego of Brown coach Len Jardine. Despite his team's 24-17 victory over Harvard Saturday, the Crimson is ranked two places ahead of the tenth-place Bruins.
Harvard, which held the top spot for two weeks at the start of the season, has steadily moved down, while Brown has hovered around the tenth position all fall. Two of the eighteen voters did not rate the 'Crimson as one of the area's top ten teams.
Dartmouth once again earned first place with little competition from Boston University and Massachusetts. Yale, a team which has consistently improved its standing, is now fourth. The Elis' 128 points from voters is considerably higher than Harvard's 57.
