Ivy League Football Report, 1995 November 6

In the last two seasons, the Penn Quakers dominated the Ivy League football scene, sweeping all seven other Ivy teams and amassing a 19-0 overall record. But this year, everything is different. Penn had already lost to Columbia and William & Mary, going into this weekend's contest with the new power in the league, the undefeated Princeton Tigers. And the new leaders kept on rolling as the Tigers downed the Quakers 22-9. Elsewhere, the Big Red of Cornell solidified their hold on second place by downing Yale 38-10 while Columbia fell 43-27 to Dartmouth, and the Harvard Crimson tightened their grasp on last place with a 47-8 drubbing at the hands of Brown.

With two weeks remaining, the Princeton express looks unstoppable, as the Tigers stand at 5-0 with only Yale and Dartmouth left to play. They play host to their archrival Bulldogs, 1-4 in the conference, this week. Cornell is only a game back at 4-1, but their remaining schedule is much tougher, leading off with a home contest against 3-2 Columbia before closing at their nemeses from Philadelphia. 3-2 Penn has an easier time this week, visiting 0-5 Harvard, while the other 3-2 team, Big Green of Dartmouth, play host to 1-4 Brown.
