Ivy League Football Report, 1995 October 9

The Columbia Lions pulled off the shocker of the Ivy League Fotball season this past Saturday when they beat the visiting Penn Quakers 24-14. The loss snapped Pennsylvania's division I-AA record winning streak at 24 games. In other Ivy action, Cornell used a two-point conversion run by Chad Levitt to extend their personal winning streak against Harvard to ten games with a 28-27 victory, and Princeton stayed unbeaten by topping Brown 21-19. The other two Ivy squads were victorious in non-conference play, with Yale downing Holy Cross 28-17 while Dartmouth topped Lafayette 14-7.

Most of the Ivies take time out for one more week of non-conference games this coming weekend. League leading Princeton, who stand at 2-0 in the Ivies and 4-0 overall, host Lafayette. Tied with them are Columbia, who hold records of 2-0 in the league and 2-1-1 overall and entertain Lehigh. 1-0 Yale play in the one conference matchup, having completed their extracurricular activity to stand 2-2 overall. The Elis host 0-2 Dartmouth, who are also 2-2 overall. Cornell hold fourth place with 2-1 and 3-1 marks, and take on Bucknell in Ithaca this weekend. Penn, while a healthy 3-1 overall, find themselves in the atypical #5 slot with a 1-1 league record. They'll try to tune up this week on the road against William and Mary before returning to league play. Finally, sharing the cellar with Dartmouth at 0-2 are Brown and Harvard. The Bears, 2-2 overall, play host to Colgate, while the Crimson try to better their anemic 1-3 mark at home against Holy Cross.
