Marinaro and Cornell Brace for Indian Test
The Ivy team championship is up for grabs with Cornell needing a win over Dartmouth this weekend if they want to clinch the title.
The battle for most of the individual statistical crowns, however, is pretty well settled. Ed Marinaro, Cornell's All-american back has a solid lead in total offense, rushing and scoring.
Last Saturday against Brown Marinaro gained 176 yards, raising his rushing and total offense yardage to 968 yards. This puts Marinaro 200 yards ahead of Columbia's Don Jackson and 510 yards ahead of Princeton's tailback. Hank Bjorklund in total yardage.
If Marinaro wins the total offense crown, he will be the first non-passer to ever do so since the league began 16 years ago.
