AROUND THE IVIES: A Day at the Ballpark

In the last trip Around the Ivies for the 2018 football season, check out picks and hard-hitting analysis for the four Ivy League games remaining on this fall's slate.

Many Touchdowns

Football Looks to Break Winless Streak Against Penn

Penn looks to continue its recent winning ways, while Harvard aims to break a three-year stretch of futility against its southernmost Ivy foe.

Passing Lane

Seniors Shine, Wind Swirls, and Football Dismisses Columbia, 52-18

Fueled by a program-high five passing touchdowns from quarterback Tom Stewart, Harvard's offense posted its largest output of the season. Several other seniors, including Wes Ogsbury with two picks, piled on and helped defeat a banged-up Columbia team.


Around the Ivies: Tussle at the Top, Columbia Visits

For Dartmouth and Princeton, this is easily the biggest game of the season. Each team is undefeated overall and in league play, and they stand head and shoulders above the competition. Whichever squad prevails sets itself up nicely to take the conference championship.

Through Rain or Shine

NOTEBOOK: Football's Comeback Not Enough to Topple Dartmouth

The football squad's losses by eight and seven points to Princeton and Dartmouth, respectively, represent the slimmest margins by which both of the league’s undefeated teams have won this season.

Look Back At It

Football Eyes Upset in Contest with Undefeated Dartmouth

This Saturday, Harvard football travels two and a half hours north to Hanover, N.H., to face Dartmouth. This time, the Big Green is undefeated in the Ancient Eight — and overall — and the Crimson is the team trying to claw its way back into contention.

Gotta Lovett

Football's Upset Bid Falls Short Against No. 18/23 Princeton, 29-21

In a tale of two quarters, Harvard and Princeton held each other scoreless in the third frame before engaging in a 19-14 shootout in the fourth. The Tigers came out on top to stay undefeated in 2018.

Lowering the Shoulder

Football Enters Second Half of Season Against Princeton

Here we are: the second half of the Ivy League football season. Though each team has just five of its 10 games remaining, all five of these games count toward the league standings. With non-conference play in the rearview mirror (don’t worry, I’m not going to pepper this ATI with Pearl Jam song titles), there is still plenty of time for the conference standings to shift significantly.

NOTEBOOK: Last-Second Field Goal Caps off Close Football Win

Harvard came out on top in a back and forth affair against Holy Cross on Friday evening. Highlights from the match included strong fourth quarter performance, special teams gaffes and a strong defense.

Football Prepares For Home Game With Holy Cross

Less than a week after losing in Ithaca, N.Y., the Crimson is back home for a Friday night matchup against Holy Cross. This is the final game in the team’s non-conference schedule.

AROUND THE IVIES: Ancient Eight Gears Up for Final Week of Non-Conference Play

Aside from my miss on last week’s Harvard–Cornell contest, I’m not sure what my record is in my first two attempts at prognosticating winners. But trust me, I know what I’m talking about. Here we go on another trip Around the Ivies.

Putting the Team on His Back

For Second Straight Year, Cornell Steals Game from Football

In a game that was reminiscent of its trip to Cornell in 2017, Harvard claimed a solid lead in the second half before succumbing to a resurgent Big Red team, 28-24.


AROUND THE IVIES: The Tiger You Feed

Check out this installment of Around The Ivies, where our football writers take a stab at predicting the results of Ivy League football this week.

Notebook: Despite Strong Defense, Football Falls to URI

Over the duration of the current senior class’ time in Cambridge, the Crimson boasts an 8-3 record against non-league competition, and two of those losses have come at the hands of the Rams.

A Well-Protected Front

Football Readies Itself for Formidable No. 20/22 Rhode Island

On Friday night, the University of Rhode Island will make the trek up from Kingston, marking the second game in a row that Harvard will play under the lights. The No. 20/22 Rams (2-1, 2-0 CAA) are a juggernaut, replete with size, physicality, and athleticism.
