College Sports Journal Ivy League Previews, How To Watch: Week of 11/2/2019

Undefeated Princeton and Dartmouth look to not slip up going into a potentially enormous matchup of undefeated teams in the Bronx.

Fearless Predictions

Princeton (6-0, 3-0) at Cornell (2-4, 1-2), Friday November 1st, 6:00 PM, Schoellkopf Field, Ithaca, NY, ESPNU, WatchESPN (subscription req’d)

The Tigers’ biggest enemy might be themselves as they could be looking ahead to next week’s possible battle of undefeateds in the Bronx with Dartmouth.  On national television, Princeton holds up their end of the deal.  Princeton 27, Cornell 6

Columbia (2-4, 1-2) at Yale (5-1, 2-1), Saturday November 2nd, 12:o0 PM, Yale Bowl, New Haven, CT, ESPN+ (subscription req’d)

The Bulldogs have plenty to play for, not least a chance at a co-Ivy League Championship and a perfect 2-0 against their rivals Harvard and Princeton.  Tricky Columbia comes to town, but Yale is trending in the right direction.   Yale 31, Columbia 13

Dartmouth (6-0, 3-0) at Harvard (4-2, 2-1), Saturday November 2nd, 1:00 PM, Harvard Stadium, Cambridge, MA, ESPN+ (subscription req’d)

Can Dartmouth keep up their torrid play and not slip up in Cambridge?  The Big Green have been on a mission since their agonizingly close loss at Princeton last season, and haven’t lost a single game since, and Dartmouth is a powerhouse defensively.  This game will see Harvard throw everything but the kitchen sink, and it will be close but not close enough. Dartmouth 20, Harvard 13

Brown (1-5, 0-3) at Penn (2-4, 0-3), Saturday November 2nd, 1:00 PM, Franklin Field, Philadelphia, PA, NBC Sports Philadelphia, ESPN+ (subscription req’d)

Penn is further along than Brown, and RB Karekin Brooks should romp.  Penn 34, Brown 3
