Around the Ivy League: Columbia, Dartmouth Remain Untouchable

Princeton scorched Brown, Columbia continued its improbable undefeated start and Harvard rebounded from its first loss to Cornell in a dozen years as the Ivy League hit the halfway point of the football season this weekend. Cornell’s loss to Bucknell was the only out-of-conference loss of the week; Yale, Dartmouth and Harvard all triumphed over non-conference opponents. Columbia’s overtime win over Penn sent the Lions to 5-0, matched only by the Green’s similarly unblemished record. Princeton 53, Brown 0
Led by 163 rushing yards and four touchdowns — including a school-record 96-yard scamper — from running back Charlie Volker, the Tigers scored 36 points in the first half of their blowout win over the Bears. Princeton outgained Brown, 538 yards to 170, and had more than twice as many first downs on the day.
