Ivy League Football Report, 1995 November 13

The penultimate weekend of Ivy League Football was a big one as the Yale Elis came from behind to upset the Princeton Tigers 21-13 and hand them theit first loss of the season in the mud at New Jersey. The result was greeted with an uproar of joy in Ithaca, New York, where the Big Red of Cornell moved into a tie with the Tigers by pounding the Columbia Lions 35-14. Elsewhere, Penn and Dartmouth kept their title hopes alive, with the Quakers handing Harvard their sixth Ivy loss, 38-21, while the Big Green defeated Brown 10-7.

The final week of the season wraps up the Ivy League race in a neat package. 5-1 Cornell visit arch-rivals 4-2 Penn and 5-1 Princeton are at 4-2 Dartmouth. If the Tigers and Red both win, they'll be co-champions; a win by one and a loss by the other will make the winner undisputed Ivy champs, and finally victories by Penn and Dartmouth will end the season in a first ever four-way tie. Elsewhere, the 3-3 Lions lick their wounds at 1-5 Brown, while 0-6 Harvard visits 2-4 Yale in a game with only traditional significance.
